Quoting Isadora

Personally, I think they should just put them all in a ring and let them duke it out in Celebrity Knockdown style. It would be more entertaining and we wouldn't have to listen to the "You suck! No, you suck!" rhetoric for months on end. I'm all for genuine debates and issue discussions but it's really more of a beauty pageant and a spindoctor's dream. But, I digress...

They should be put in a reality show and let them vote themselves out. Now, which reality show would suit them best?

I have to admit that I dont know much about Singapore politics so I have no right to laugh at that poll.

But consider the position of US vs Singapore in the world, plus the US presidential race is closely watched nearly everywhere in the world and there're a few articles everyday in our papers and news.

You are right, I hate gum on the streets of philadelphia

That was my thought, too - if the shoe were on the other foot, I doubt American students (or students outside Singapore in general, I guess) would know all that much about Singapore politics.

Hell, Id be amazed if American students know where Singapore is.

Well at least they know Copenhagen is the capital of the Netherlands, but Jacob is not from Holland

That's a bet anyone will highly likely lose.

Out of all the people from everywhere that I've met those from US and Europe are the ones who most likely don't know the answer.

They'll tell you we're in China - which I find very offensive.

First off, if there was a knock-down dragout fight then I'm pretty sure Hillary would win, regardless of party. I'm not saying I like her or anything, but I think she's got it in her - the only reason she's not fighting really dirty is because she can't risk it, but that lady could definitely take down all of the other guys!

Secondly, just like everything else in the U.S.'s messed up Electoral System the nominations are not based solely on the caucuses and primaries. More so it's another votes with delegates, some who are supposed to represent the state popular vote (but don't have to) and some who can choose which ever candidiate they want. This is a separate process for Democrats and Republicans. So we can't really tell til we get in more states, but even then, especially in a close race things can change.

Fun, fun!

Yeah, that is a ridiculous thing for them to say.
I dont consider myself a geography guru but I do know that Singapore is in Mongolia.

From what people are saying(personal opinions) I dont think I will be a fan of Hillery Clinton.
I dont like politicians who use dirty underhand tactics and playing the system to get into power.
It does not give a nice prediction of how they will behave once they actually get into power.
