  1. Today
  2. WESLEY CLARK TO PRIMARY PRESIDENT, OTHERS CONSIDER BIDS the Washington Post, January 4th, 2004 Ret. Gen. Wesley Clark has announced today that in light of recent "foreign affairs blunders," as he called them, on the part of the Gore Administration, he will challenge the President for re-nomination. Several other Democrats, such as Gov. Howard Dean and Sens. John Edwards and Bob Graham, are also considering challenging the President in his own party's primaries. This is a bad sign for Gore, as it shows that not only is America conflicted over his Presidency, but so is his own Democratic party. On the Republican side, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich maintains a wide lead over his only challengers, Gov. George W. Bush and Sen. Lincoln Chafee.
  3. Two questions: 1) I know Melenchon wants a constitution convention, but what are his proposals for said convention? Give parliament more power? 2) You didn't mention Part I Socialist, so I'm curious what they are doing. Are they trying to court FI voters or is the party still unpopular?
  4. Additional note: It creates a blank text file that is named like a save game in the save game folder, but it is empty.
  5. This error occurred with no save game editing or other tampering in a custom scenario that added Michael Bloomberg to the Republican primaries (though it has saved just fine before)
  6. Oct 15th, 2016 Another week, but it's more of the same. Trump has lost a little ground, but he's made up for it in big ways in the earlier states. Cruz has gained enough to become to primary challenger to Trump in national polling, but to really cement his place he needs to gain more support in the early primary states where Trump leads by large margins. Kasich and Bloomberg appear to be getting some support, but the establishment by and large supports the supposed "rising star" of the Republican party, Florida Senator Marco Rubio. Cruz and Trump are tying in different polls for who will win the Texas primary in March, which is a good sign for Cruz who until now was expected to lose by a large margin. John Kasich, while not growing his support in Ohio, is second to a stumbling Trump. For the Democrats, there was an upset on the debate stage just as there was 8 years prior. Hillary Clinton came under fire from both of her primary opponents for her close ties to the banking industry, and while she recovered well it definitely made it's mark on primary voters. Jim Webb was declared the victor of the debate by polling, though the debate was incredibly close between him and Sanders. Nationally, Clinton has lost some ground to a rising Sanders on the left, and to a rising Webb from the right. While Clinton may have stumbled in the debate, she's anything but lost ground in the primary states. Likely voters are 10% more likely to support her today than they were a week ago, which some claim is due to the ad flurry put out by the Clinton campaign in the first four primary states. Clinton also gained massive ground in New Hampshire and Nevada, but lost some in South Carolina to a rising Webb. Sanders continues to grow more popular among the party elite, and John Kerry came out and publicly endorsed him yesterday. Pundits are predicting this will be the first in many establishment politicians who endorse Sanders because they can't stomach the lack of integrity of Clinton. General election polls are still showing gains for the Democrats, and some are even predicting that traditionally Republican states such as Arizona, Missouri, and Montana will be in play for the Democrats.
