    It was quite a speech if you're a democrat. He definitely riles up his base like no other dem. I don't think he'd get re-elected though. Too much baggage.

    Maybe it's a marketing scheme. They take your name and email addy, then tell you that you have high BF. Next they'll probably spam you with fatburning pills.
