Will it be Trump versus Clinton?

Here in New York with Presidential Elections less than a year away (just 10 months) and the primaries about to get fast and furious, it seems like many of our friends and family consider political outsider Donald Trump to be a sure/done deal to head the Republican ticket. It's not that everyone is happy about it, but his campaign has a certain tsunami type feel to it.

They also take for granted that the Clinton Machine will get Hillary in without any real problems.  IMHO a lot will ride on their VP choices.

Does anyone have an idea who they will be?

Will Trump go for a wily politician to counter his outsider status, sort of like JFK did in his choice of Johnson who after the Kennedy assassination was the one who managed the impossible of passing the Kennedy-credited legislation?

And will Clinton go for someone younger, ok everyone is younger, to counteract her over the hill image?

Will this be the first election in decades in which the "Jewish vote" is irrelevant? That was why I wrote Israel Suddenly Unpopular with Presidential Wannabes.

What do you think?

I dislike Trump only slightly less than I abhor Hillary. I do so hope that somehow Ted Cruz can catch up at the last minute. **sigh**. However, I believe you are right: It WILL be Trump vs. Clinton and SHE will be the next hyena in the White House. May Hashem have mercy on us all!

The first thought that comes to mind on the 2016 elections are the busy hands rearranging the deck chairs as the Titanic is sinking, going down to the bottom of the ocean.

The Donald and Hillary are the orchestra playing sweet and sour melodies, out of key to the extremely distracted and soon to go down with the ship voters.

Perhaps ironically, Donald Trump has Jewish grandchildren and Hillary Clinton has half-Jewish grandchildren. The difference is that Donald Trump's Jewish grandchildren are really Jewish, but Hillary's are not.
