I am sure you will hear about Cuomo the more Biden has a mic in front of his face.

there were plenty of competent Dem governors running , they got zero traction, they like Cuomo were not "Bernie crazy" enough for the activists

don't put it all on the Dems, our system isn't built to reward milquetoast centrists

party doesn't really matter

I'm starting to come around to a system of preference voting in four or five large "regional" primaries.....I'm sure there are problems with that too, nothing will ever be "perfect"

i agree the primary system is really bad because it leads to some pretty dreadful outcomes with lost leaders like the iowa caucus and new hampshire primary coupled with cleaver politicians like king-maker jim clyburn. a one-day primary would be better.

as far as centrists, ted cruz was well right of djt who was then and is now not a hard-line conservative. so, i'm not buying your milquetoast moderate schtick, willis.

John Kasich

Trump got 5 billion dollars worth of free media coverage during the 2016 primary....it really is that simple

I did vote for Kasich in the primary. That's before I discovered he is such a douchbag.

meh....his biggest problem was that he wasn't a celebrity that had every one of his stump speeches and rallies aired live by all the cable "news" networks. Don't forget Mr. Trump was given a regular time slot by Fox News to launch his "political" career with his Birtherism rants as well
