For John, BLUF: Just more grist for the mill. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Politico we have Reporter Steven Shepard, on New Years Day, giving us a look at the near future—"Insiders give their top predictions for 2016".
Get ready for a Ted Cruz-Nikki Haley ticket. And a GOP establishment freak-out in January.and these are just a couple of the predictions, with this the lede:
These are just a handful of 2016 predictions from members of The POLITICO Caucus — a collection of the top activists, strategists and operatives in the first four states that will cast ballots next year.It is going to be a fun ride.
And, by the way, I like the idea of a Ted Cruz-Nikki Haley ticket. Put a minority on the ticket. Heck, put two minorities and a woman on the ticket. But, I am still being opened minded. Here in Lowell we have until 1 March to make up our minds, although we have only until 6 February to rearrange our Party Affiliation for the 1 March Primary. If you are a registered Democrat you can't walk in and pull a Republican ballot on 1 March. But, if you are Unenrolled, you can go either way, or some other option, like Libertarian or Green or…. But, you have only a month to switch party colors.
If you wish to see Mr Donald Trump, live, Monday, at the Tsongas arena, click here for tickets.
