Hillary won because Sanders only appeals to white progressives. Hillary crushed it with black voters and Latinos. If Sanders gets crushed next weekend in South Carolina then that is going to hurt him as he goes into Super Tuesday.

Satterberg has always been a puritanical clown -- he doesn't give a damn about these women, just making more of a name for himself.

There's a reason why prostitution is called the oldest profession -- it is never going to go away. It would be much better for the prostitutes, mostly women, if it were to made legal and well regulated.

If anyone doesn't want this distraction, it's Hillary Clinton. I'm sure she has nothing to do with it.

Why? Because she's winning and by huge margins. No need to upset the apple cart now.

Sorry, Sanders folks. I know you like to feel like you're man is the victim of some huge conspiracy. But he's not. He just can't win. He doesn't excite large swaths of the Democratic electorate -- especially moderates, older folks, blacks and latinos.

Every poll of Nevada (3rd state to vote), South Carolina (4th state to vote) and most of the "Super Tuesday" states show he's losing and losing by huge margins. He's losing Texas by 30%, Virginia by 36%, Nevada by 26% and South Carolina by 44%!

This campaign is over and has been over since it even began. Sanders will be dropping out sometime after March 1st and will be endorsing Clinton.

Damn some of you people are ignorant. Please read up on Lebanon. It is a very diverse society with plenty of non-Muslims, including around 40% Christian.

You're not actually making the point you think you are.

This is a really dumb post by Ansel but I'll answer it anyway.

1) Because most Americans have a fondness for Paris and many have been there whereas few even know where Beirut is.
2) What Rotten 666 said.
3) Because France is a major ally of the U.S. and involved in a war with us.
4) Because the death toll in France is greater than in Beirut. While this is the worst terrorism to hit Beirut since the civil war this is the worst to hit France since WW II.

@7

I'm sure you know that 40% of Lebanese people identify as Christian, right? In fact, when you consider the secular nature of French society, there's probably a greater percentage of practicing Christians in Beirut than in Paris.

Just saying...

Even a few years ago, the people doing the live-blog wouldn't have taken a 15 minute break to buy a box of wine. The Slog has turned to shit since Goldie and Dominic left.

So now you're not even going to live-blog presidential debates? Wow, "The Stranger" sure has gone down hill the last several years. What a crappy "news" organization!

This article is bullshit. The reason why he was not allowed into the debates is because, not only has he no chance at winning, he also has never been elected to any public office. At least Chaffee, Webb, Pataki, and Kasich have all been elected to major public offices.

There is no reason to include him in the debates.

@17

It matters because Senators/ Representatives/ Governors are also super delegates and thus actually have a vote in the primary.
