I know I'm looking forward to the next 8 years of Hillar-ious drama. It won't be as exciting as Trumps in the House, but almost certainly Bill will be caught philandering and in a handful of corruption scandals that will set off the Republican party and cause people to evaluate the role of first man.

Premature to write Trump off. The campaign does not begin in earnest until after the conventions. Most people don’t start paying attention before this point and this is not even the point that most people are really interested in politics. It's August - vacation time.

The polling now means very little (Nate Silver). Convention bounces are often unstable and don't indicate as much as the hype.

Some commentators have noted that the no-Trump cohort has already shot off its biggest guns. Trump hasn't yet really begun to go after Hillary. The Khan affair is about Trump's base, which loves it. Trump is still priming the base. — Trump’s Campaign Focused On Attracting Unlikely Voters, A Memo Shows

Pretty good journalism for the MSM at least. Relevant to understand the groundswell for Bernie and Trump, I think.

Convention bounce for Hillary fading fast:

I don't think she had a bounce in the first place. Media is corrupt beyond belief.

Once again, never, ever, bet on anything that can talk.

Trump deserves to win, if for no other reason than poetic justice.

This does not matter, for Bernie was hell bent on sabotaging himself.

Trotskyists weigh in on Bernie's "Dear John" letter:

I was going to add that the WSWS had no horse in this race, but they do. They have candidates running for Prez and Vice Prez under the Socialist Equality Party.
