Last August at the Start of ALL the Politicking, I thought we might have a Different Outcome than the One we presently do—Trump seems unstoppable with Jebra dropping out and Bernie has a BIG Chance in South Carolina

BLOGPOST #1,919 AT THE AICP-END

It is good to be back
Wasco, CA, 02-22-2016 Monday: Folks, welcome to Wasco, California, my hometown of sorts, a place I love and know best, doing what we all love to do and that is to work like a proverbial mother----r making great food, mending relations with the community, and employing fellow Americans. 
Last year back in August, I was saying that I thought Hillary Clinton should abandon the race sooner rather than later because I had a whole lotta doubts about the woman back then just as I do now.  In fact, I was hoping Joe Biden or Michelle Obama would throw their hats into the ring and so far, neither of them has made a move in which, to do it. 
What I did not expect was that Bernie Sanders would get this far but now, I see him as our only hope, that is if the Democrat Party wants to claim the White House for the third election in a row and to further the accomplishments and goals of Barack Obama, that he is the man for us.   
Bernie needs to beef up the minority support
The thing that concerned me is that we need minorities to ride the Bernie Express into the November election and that if we end up being stuck with Hillary, we will experience the same devastating losses we did when put forward Al Gore and John F. Kerry. 
Those two losers cost the Democrats big by being flakier than the Pillsbury doughboy’s mother is.  We need someone who can ignite the spark in the minds and hearts of liberal voters, people who will flock to the old socialist’s campaign to help push him over the top and behind the Oval Office desk. 
I think Bernie can do it and it seems to me that the young Latinos, the Millennials, women under the age 65, and many, many more do want to see a socialist in the White House.  The man could save our great nation and continue the accomplishments of Barack Obama for another 4-8 years.   
Hillary acts as though she is the winner—again!
Right now, Hillary acts as though she is the inevitable winner—again!—which is unfair to Senator Sanders. 
I think if Bernie can pull the Latinos aboard his speeding freight train as well as to maintain a grip on women, the young, and the hardcore far left voters, there is no way she can stop him. 
We know that if Bernie can win the nomination, I am sure he has the ability and the strength to go all the way, no matter whom the Republicans put up against him.  
It looks like the Republicans are going with Donald Trump--good
It appears that the Republicans are on the way to selecting Donald Trump to be their standard-bearer; he seems to be an unstoppable force. 
If he goes up against Hillary, I think there could be a cataclysmic explosion as the two crashes into one another with the impact of two trains speeding down the same railroad track into a head-on collision. 
Trump will talk over her while she screams ‘sexism,’ ‘misogyny,’ and every other anti-male bully stereotype she can.  This is her way, this is what she always does, she goes anti-male, which is not the way to go because it makes her a one-horse candidate in MY view.  
Senator Rubio could stop Trump, which would be good for the Democrats
If anyone can stop Trump on the Republican side, I suspect it could be Marco Rubio, because it seems to me that many of the Republicans seem to like the scrappy youngster with the illuminating smile. 
Yet, the Republicans scream and wail that Barack Obama was a ‘one-term senator and oh, woe, look at the horrible mess he has made.’  If they follow their criticism of the president then Rubio nor Ted Cruz should be capable of handling the presidency.  Fortunately, I suspect that the Republicans already overlook the fact that both senators are first-term politicians and should therefore, be unable to win the presidency.  
Poor Jeb Bush—it did not go as he hoped it would
I have to laugh though about poor Jeb Bush, he thought he would have the race sown up tight.  However, he made some pretty stupid statements such as saying he ‘wanted to win without the base (of the Republican Party)’ as well as he ‘had better things to do than to run for president’ when he was having problems early on with Donald Trump stomping all over him. 
He committed gaff after gaff and gave his political opponents loads of ammunition to use against him and it got so bad that the poor man never got higher than low single digits.   
Saturday Night Live took ‘Jebra’ down, too
Worse, Saturday Night Live did their best to eat him alive, going so far as to call him “Jebra,” with the actor portraying Donald Trump telling him in a mock SNL debate, “I have it on good word that you were born a girl, Jebra.” 
Saturday Night Live can be hilariously hard hitting while giving everyone a good laugh at the same time and the portrayal of Sarah Palin endorsing Donald Trump was a good one, too, yet, the Donald continues to roll on and on without anyone seemingly capable of stopping him. 
Here are my picks as to who will come out on top this weekend
I think we are going to have a fun week as we come to another election cycle here as the Democrats and Republicans reverse the election order, the Democrats heading to South Carolina and then the Republicans going to Nevada. 
Now, there are but five Republicans fighting for a spot on the ticket out of Las Vegas and here are my picks: (1) Donald Trump, (2) Marco Rubio (3) John Kasich (4) Ted Cruz, and sadly, (5) Dr. Ben Carson who will be the next one to leave the round robin. 
I feel bad for the doctor because he should become a Democrat and beg for forgiveness.  He might make a good vice presidential pick for Senator Sanders—what do you think about that?  
As for the Democrats, hmmm, I think Bernie is going to surprise Hillary in South Carolina and then on Super Tuesday.  We shall see.    
Thanks, my friends!

This is I back in the 1980’s when I was working at a restaurant in Wasco, CA, my hometown.  I joined the Chefs de Cuisine of Greater Bakersfield, ACF, not long after it was chartered and am still a member even though the chapter is no longer in operation.  I began working in foodservice in the late 1960’s, moved from Wasco, CA, to Monterey, CA, and then returned to my hometown in 2004.  I have been a foodserver, a Mixologist, and am a Certified Cook.  I am equally at home in both the kitchen and behind the bar (and on the floor, too).  My passions are numerous and my favorite is working in the bakery whenever I have had a chance.
