All those who are ready to die for this elections should realise that those who died for the 2011 elections are not here today, neither of the presidential candidates care and when you die in this election, nobody will care in 2019!! Be wise!!

Rivers state is not a battleground state, it will go to PDP, along with imo state and pretty much all the states in green. Despite buhari massive support in the north and west, it will not be as solidly red as projected here, there will be patches of blue which is just what PDP needs to pull it off, this was the electoral map in 2011 and frankly I see little change.

Regardless of how you twist it - I don't see a democrat slam dunk, with a back to back rule. When was the last time that happened? Despite the popularity of Bill Clinton after he left office before all the bubble he created started bursting - Al Gore couldn't nick it despite being a Clinton disciple, popular Vice President during Clinton's tenure, and very loyal.

The Bush family has a massive structure and a powerful connect within the circle of decision makers that control US power play/politics. Can't you see Obama left the core of Bush's people in there when he assumed office and they are still the ones running things? No one is stopping the Bush 3-peat.

Also, with how Obama has flopped - I don't see the Democrats returning to power.
just like Ronald regan, barack obama will leave office handing over to a fellow democrat. He has laid the foundation of that will a massive Hispanic, black and white vote. Al gore lost the presidency because I ran away from Clinton during the generals because he believed the lewisky affair will affect him, despite that gore still won the popular vote and would have won if the supreme Court did'nt get involved. There is nothing phenomenal about the bushes, it's all hype. A one term bush senior and a bush junior who lost the popular vote in two consecutive elections, very funny.

That's the sad constant for Republicans. In all general election hypothetical match ups, Hillary is winning by, at least, 12% points. grin
indeed! And it scares republicans like crazy! I follow reince priebus, the RNC chairman on twitter and all he tweets about is hillary Clinton and one so called scandals or the other, I tweeted him back one day saying "for republicans and their chairman, the fear of hillary is the beginning of wisdom "....republicans on twitter tire into me, i'm still getting hate tweets till today.

The other baggage Hillary will carry are the mysterious deaths of Vince Foster, Ron Brown, and others who were all coincidentally killed by a gunshot to the head. Those dead folks were, in some way, connected to the Clinton scandals right from a Little Rock to D.C.
all what you just outlined here are Washington dc talking points that nobody apart from political junkies know. To the average America, hillary is an experienced politician and states woman they have known for over 20 years, stop using political talking points to measure political success, fails everytime. Failed the republicans after impeaching bill thinking the American people were behind then, ended up loosing massively at the mid terms, the pundits said hillary will never win her senatorial campaign in new York because all the so called scandals including white water, what happened in 2000?

So, in other words, Scott Walker will be the likely nominee. If Kentucky amends it's law to allow individuals to run for more than one office, I see Rand Paul clinching the nomination.
Scott walker is the likely nominee, he is the only candidate so far with the ability to bring the establishment wing and tea party wing together, rand Paul will never get support from the hawkish neo conservative wing of the party for his liberatanism and even evangelicals distrust him for his views on gay marriage, etc.. Scott walker holds all the cards at this point, plus he is a Washington outsider still he will be beaten by a hillary Clinton.

Bill Clinton is damaged goods and cowboy. All he managed to do was create an economic bubble and sell the people a dream with his charming deceit. Don't forget he created the housing bubble of the 90s that crashed during the recession and most people haven't forgiven him for that.

Then you have the disaster in Somalia etc.. A large percentage of US electorates with never forgive playboy Bill Clinton. Maybe Hilary might get most of the black votes cos most among the black population can relate to the Clinton family and they are mostly democrats.
forgive what? Bill Clinton is the most popular and respected living former u.s president, respected by Democrats and republicans alike, in 2012, he got people to the poll for obama through his rousing campaigns and electric speech at the DNC. Republicans for years have tried to somehow trace the disastrous bush economy to Clinton, heck they even tried tracing 9/11 to him but the American people are not buying it one bit, and the polls says it all, face it, the only problem the Clinton will face will be in a primaries where voters have moved further to the left and are distrustful of the Clinton and their centrist DLC kind of leadership, an obama type left wing candidate like elizabeth warren might embarrass them, but save that. In a general election, they will trounce anyone republicans bring forward, that's why the republican party is scared and digging up whatever dirt they can on her.

There's no bigger 419 than that grin

But I'm concerned that these campaigns are getting more expensive every cycle. Imagine Clinton would raise over $1bn for a job that pays a 'paltry' $400,000 annually
indeed! The money is politics is concerning but that shows how high stakes things are now, real presidential candidates are not fighting for power for the fun of it but to leave their mark on America and drive it in their ideological direction, and more than ever with citizens united, there is an endless stream of billionaires to fund them both directly and overtly through superpacks.

Shut ya gob, big head lol.

Apart from Rand Paul, on paper, is there anyone better than him? Anyway, I wrote the script for both DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODLicans - two sides to the same coin, and it is Jeb Bush's presidency to lose. No one can stop the Bush dynasty. Not even Hilary Clinton the noisemaker lol.

Don't lose a limb in Guam...heard US just tested the 3min man ICBM in Cali. The shooting in the nearest future is going to be epic. Be ready cos Jeb Bush loves a good shooting match.
job bush will not make it through the primaries no matter how much money the establishment showers on him, one, the country is still reeling from his brothers disastrous presidency, the party hates his centrist and sometimes left leaning views on immigration, common core,etc, there is a reason his brother has'nt been invited to any party convention since he left office, the bush name us now damaged good.

And your comparison with the Clinton is laughable! The 90's under bill Clinton was the most prosperous period in u.s history, despite Monica lewisky, bill Clinton left office with an over 60% approval, all they need to do is to cast the election as a return to the good old 90's or a return to a presidency that ended with two failed wars and the biggest economic meltdown since the great depression. You don't need a prophet to tell you who'll win.

Ted cruz is a joke and will be a good source of commit relief in the 2016 primaries, he us going no where and he knows it, he just just setting up himself to be picked as running mate by the eventual nominee who will need the crazy evangelical and tea part vote, finally cruz has a very confusing and conflicting ancestry plus he was born in Canada, I hate he will also he asked to produce his birth certificate and also be subjected to all the ridicule matted out against obama about his ancestry but I guess not, cruz is white!!

Did I hear you say people like Lee Meaba is the one controlling Andoni LGA? For clarity sake, Lee Meaba doesn't hail from Andoni but from the Ogoni axis of Rivers state. Please do not equate Tele Ikuru as a lighter weight with no capacity to pull strings in his LGA. Holding such assumption will amount to committing a political blunder. Tele definitely has his own supporters who will defect with him to the PDP. Don't also forget that by virtue of his position he was automatically the leader of APC in Andoni LGA.
if you don't even know where lee meaba is from, there is no need continuing this discussion.

because the man has been loyal all thus while considering the fact that it was an act of benevolence for ameachi to pick a political lightweight like him to be his deputy, if is stupid for ameachi to be shocked, he should have expected it....no matter how dull a person is, a struggle for survival and relevance is still prevalent in them and that is what Mr. Ikuru just did.

I think it just shows massive desperation on the part of PDP that they are celebrating with so much vigour the defection of the most inconsequential politician in rivers state. I even doubt if 70% of rivers people know who the deputy governor is. Can anyone tell me actually when he brings go the gable except trying to save his own skin in the event of a wike government.

I think it just shows major desperation for good news by PDP for them to celebrate with such vigour at the defection of the most inconsequential politician in the history of rivers state, tele ikuru. The man knows he has no future in APC and knowing wike will probably win, he is just looking to remain relevant in rivers state. Simple!!

Education / indian parents Scale School Building To Help Kids Cheat exams(pics). by Symphony007: 8:33pm On Mar 20, 2015

PATNA, India — About 600 high school students in eastern India have been expelled for cheating on pressure-packed 10th grade examinations this week, education authorities said Friday.

The incident has received widespread attention after Indian television footage showed parents and friends of students scaling the outer walls of school buildings to pass cheat sheets to students inside taking exams.

More than 1.4 million 10th graders are taking the tests at more than 1,200 high schools across the state. They face tremendous pressure because they must pass the exams to continue their education.

Teachers and state education department officials supervising the examination caught hundreds of students who had smuggled in text books or scraps of paper for cheating.

“It’s virtually impossible to conduct fair examinations without the cooperation of parents,” said P.K. Shahi, Bihar’s education minister. He said it was not possible to monitor the 6 million parents and others who accompany the students to the examination centers.

State authorities posted police at all schools where examinations were being held, “but we can’t use force to drive away the parents,” he said.

Nearly two dozen parents were detained after they were caught helping their children, but were released after several hours.

On Friday, the high court in the state capital, Patna, ordered the Bihar police chief to ensure that examinations are conducted in a fair manner.

State education authorities have canceled examinations held at four centers after they received reports of large-scale cheating.

Bihar School Examination Board Secretary Sriniwas Tiwari said students caught cheating could be barred from taking the exam for up to three years, ordered to pay a fine or even sent to jail.

Cheating seems to be particularly widespread in Bihar, although there have been no reports of anyone being sent to jail for the offense.
