Jimmy Carter was simply too good a human being to be President. And he had just awful luck along with some very suspicious activity that sunk any chance of a 2nd term due to Iran being utterly unwilling to release hostages right up till the moment he was done. Almost as if there was a back door deal in place there. Not like we ended up giving them s bunch of weapons later on or something...oh wait.

But yeah, Carter was and is a great human being.

You are assuming that the Republicans will suddenly and unexpectedly become utterly sane right after the elections, aren't you?

Because if they don't, if at the next elections they present even nuttier candidates (something which seems likely considering their current track record), then it is not clear to me why Bernie would be in danger of losing such an election. If in 2020 the voters have to decide between Bernie Sanders and Cliven Bundy, would they really go for the latter?

Um, to be a minority, wouldn't they have to be a unique small group with a history of discrimination? When I think Jews, that's not exactly what comes to mind. Has another group ever had it quite so easy historically than than the Jewish people?

Why?
I don't think the discrimination has ever been an official requirement. The nobility in Great Britain is a minority of the population, but they've not particularly been discriminated against anywhere in the last couple of millennia.
And being a small group isn't needed either, apparently. After all, it is a well known fact that women are a minority too, even though there are quite a lot of them.
