    I believe Kasich has never lost an election at any level over a time spanning more than 30 years. He would be a strong VP candidate and would deliver Ohio to president Rubio. Don't see any value in adding Bush to a Rubio ticket.

    Hillary's supporters should be very very nervous. Of course, they should have been nervous months ago.

    I believe Uncle Joe is still going to make his presence felt.

    Studies have shown that the VP candidate doesn't have a big impact with voters. It's 99 percent who the presidential candidate is.

    Life is about disappointments and letdowns. Its about how you respond to those disappointments, when encountering your darkest hour and adversity is the greatest, that define you as a person. How will you respond in your darkest hour?

    I wonder if Biden is second guessing his decision to not enter the race.
    He said a week or so ago that he regrets that decision every day.

    I'm still not counting him out of this race...#BrokeredConvention

    I heard Carson this morning very upset, said Cruz staffers were tweeting and telling Caucus voters that he was out of the race last night and asking for Carson supporters to support Cruz last night.

    Sure but to say the geography doesn't matter is bunk. Until they do away with the electoral college it will remain bunk.

    Hillary did what she needed to do last night. Bernie wins N.H., then they go on to S.C., where Hillary is expected to do better than Iowa. As Chris Matthews said last night: Sanders is going to have a tough time in any state that doesn't border Vermont.

    I would be shocked to see Biden jump in now. He would have to organize a ground game overnight, then flip major Hillary donors. A big Hillary loss in Iowa last night may have gotten Biden thinking about jumping into the race, but that didn't happen.

    The shocker of the night was Trump's concession speech.

    No doubt. I stayed up to watch it and he was normal.

    The days of a JFK choosing a LBJ to "balance the ticket" are over. McCain didn't select Palin because he wanted to win Alaska. Geography still plays a role but has slipped down the scale of importance.

    He won't jump into the race...if he did that would open up his and the Presidents record for the past 7 years to get drug through the mud by other democrats. He's waiting for HRC's legal problems to come to a head then he'll swoop in on his white horse. If she never get's indicted then uncle Joe will stay on the sidelines. There is no way he'll enter the primaries.

    I think the Clinton camp is fine with the results from Iowa. In fact, Bernie is probably helping Hillary by energizing young voters. Hillary needs to figure out how to capitalize and motivate that voting bloc to stay with her in the fall.

    Also, may as well get this off the table, the results in New Hampshire will have zero impact or concern for Hillary. She is going to lose there and she knows it. Now, if things change in the next primary in South Carolina and Bernie closes the gap or even makes it a race, that would be a big time concern for Hillary. So for all those eager to start throwing dirt on Hillary, pay attention to South Carolina not NH, for your opportunity.

    I think most of those votes will go to Rubio, but the Carson voters will likely go to Cruz.
