THE EDITORIAL BOARD of The New York Times supports Hillary Clinton for Democrat winner

For the past painful year, the Republican presidential contenders have been bombarding Americans with empty propaganda slogans and competing, bizarrely, to present themselves as the least experienced person for the most important elected job in the world. Democratic primary voters, on the other hand, after a substantive debate over real issues, have the chance to nominate one of the most broadly and deeply qualified presidential candidates in modern history.

THE EDITORIAL BOARD of the NEW YORK TIMES supports John Kasich for gop winner.

“The battle to be the Republican choice for president has been nasty, brutish and anything but short. The hope among some Republicans is that the Iowa caucuses on Monday and the New Hampshire primary on Feb. 9 will promote a candidate who can appeal to the half of their electorate that doesn’t support the two current front-runners.” read more by googling:

The violence continued when three women blew themselves up in the middle of a croud of people who were running away.

Not everyone in the GOP loves Trump – if this speach declares as much

I was on buzzfeed when I found a story talking about Freshman Senator Ben Sasse (r Neb)
He was speaking to some GOP doners on a pannel of the right to have freedum of speach. This is what he said ****
At first, Sasse joked, “We had a bet – I think I’m losing right now – how far could we go before the name of the Republican frontrunner was mentioned, so I won’t exactly mention him yet.”
But within seconds, he went on to try explain Trump’s popularity with the GOP base to donors – many of whom don’t like Mr. Trump and want him gone
“First of all, I was worried when we were told that this event was business casual and we couldn’t wear ties, and we didn’t even need to wear coats,” Sasse said. “I felt the need to dress up since last night Mr. Trump decided to attack me on Twitter as someone who looks more like a gym rat.”
“I viewed it as high praise,” he said, drawing laughs and applause from the crowd.
On a more serious note, Sasse continued: “I want to distinguish between two aspects of this moment. I believe that Mr. Trump is actually a very, smart articulate man. And I think he’s incredibly strategic about what he’s doing. And there’s a lot that’s terribly broken in Washington, and he’s good at diagnosis.”
“So many times his blunt speech is actually accurate about certain kinds of problems he’s identifying, so there are many people – again I’m totally new to politics… I know that there are lots of people in my family who are supporting Mr. Trump – not in my nuclear family, but in my extended family,” he said.
When he was interrupted by another panelist constitutional lawyer David French, who said his parents were supporting Trump, Sasse joked, “I feel like it’s just becoming an AA group. I’m David French and I know someone who is voting for Trump,” before going back to his tough talk on Trump.
“I know across my state there are lots and lots of people who voted for me who are now in the Trump camp,” he said. “Trump leads by 5 in Iowa and that appears to be his smallest lead in the nation, so I want to be clear that I think there are lots of people who are supporting Trump for reasons that are understandable on the diagnosis side of the ledger – that’s a completely different thing from what a solution is.”
“Because I want to make America great again, and the way to make America great again is not by abandoning the constitutional limits and saying to some guy, ‘Wd you be our king”‘ And I think that’s a lot of what’s happening in our electorate right now,” Sasse said. “We can’t give Trump a pass when we don’t know what he stands for.”
