    How stupid was this pick?

    She has no charisma and not very good looking.

    People demand charisma and good looks. It also helps to be loud and obnoxious and insulting. I think if Ted wanted to pick a woman he would have been better off picking Ann Coulter.

    Who will Donald pick for his losing mate?

    I have to say, I thought Ted was smarter than this. He was obviously trying to pander to the "woman vote".

    Fiorina won a Republican primary in California. Cruz may be trying to get the "woman vote" but more importantly for him, he is desperate to gain delegates from California which he would need to force a brokered convention.

    Yea, we will see how well that works for him.

    All I know is that his poll numbers began to tank when she came on board the sinking ship.

    Women simply don't do well in politics. Hillary lost to Obama and look what they did to Sarah Palin.

    Hillary being a woman is the only thing that gives me pause when debating whether Trump has a chance. If Trump picks a woman VP, then he will lose for sure.

    Tell that to Angela Merkel or Margaret Thatcher. Or Clinton in November.

    Good! They each need the nomination to get to the general.

    The notion that all women will vote for a woman, is offensive to women's intelligence, as is the notion that blacks will all vote for a black.

    I suspect you are wrong, although there is no way of proving it.

    95% of blacks voted Obama.

    There, I was off by a whopping 4%. Do you know what that means Norm? That means Whodey lied!!

    You're off by quite a bit more - 95% of black voters voted Obama. By comparison, 90% of black voters voted for Kerry - although the turnout was higher for Obama.

    Ted Cruz has suspended his campaign (before the California primary).
