Bern 'N Hills!

No easy road for Hillary Clinton. The Bern is hot!

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Hillary Clinton ended up in a tie in yesterday's Iowa Caucus. The Democratic candidates both ended up having 49.9% and 49.6% respectively. Clinton carried 700 (23) delegates and Sanders 695 (21). Some of the precincts were decided on coin flips.

The Democratic caucus is totally different from the Republican caucus. The delegates for the Democrats are split between candidates. Republicans are distributed through proportional.

Assuring that this will be a bitter Democratic primary. The Republicans on the other hand have Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as their winner of the Iowa Caucus.

Sanders who is clearly a threat to Clinton is vowing to shake up the establishment. Sanders is a Democratic Socialist. He is a progressive and a very nice guy. He hasn't got the endorsements of fellow senators and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), DNC chairwoman wants him out.

The young Democrats are not having it. They came out for Bernie and it seems like I can say that this is a "victory" for both Clinton and Sanders.

But the bad blood is already there. The Sanders supporters booed Clinton, and Republicans rivals.

You got liberal agitators Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Bill Press, Alan Colmes and Leslie Marshal all debating over who's got it in the bag. Their callers are threatening boycotting the Democratic candidate if its not theirs.

A civil war is mounting between Schultz and Rep. Tulisi Gabbard (D-HI). Gabbard, a conservative Democrat is trying to focus on issues that Republican bark over. Schultz and Gabbard sparred over the debate schedule and how to distribute delegates. Gabbard was banned from the first debate after she appeared on MSNBC to bitch about Schultz.

Also noted, former Maryland governor Martin O'Malley dropped out. He only managed to win a measly 8 state committed delegates.

The agitators in the junk food media (i.e. Drudge, old fart Limbaugh, and that annoying conservative agitator Sean Hannity) have called Sanders a curmudgeon.

And yet, Cruz and rival Donald Trump aren't!

Well it's off to New Hampshire. The Republicans have a last stand here. Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Chris Christie and Marco Rubio have a last stand here. If they fail at winning against Cruz or Trump, it's over for them.

It's over for Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, Rick Santorum, and Jim Gilmore.

Clinton and Sanders will appear on CNN tonight to do a town hall. They will have the gloves off when this happens.
