Actually kind of... I'm a school bus driver in Ann Arbor now. Fun job, get nights and weekends off and paid holidays. I always wanted a CDL so I finally bothered to go try and get one and they did free (unpaid) training. This is the first year Durham School Services has run the Ann Arbor bus department via a lease. Prior to 2009-10 the district ran it directly and then from 09-10 to 14-15 the Washtenaw Intermediate School District ran it. So while I am employed by a private employer it is in the service of a government entity using 100% government owned facilities and equipment and most of the old personnel. Unlike Ann Arbor the combined Ypsi - Willow Run district "Ypsilanti Community Schools" actually sold rather than leased their bus department and all the buses to Durham outright this past Summer after the WISD pulled out.

So far Durham is a nice company... They are based in Illinois but ultimately British owned...

I stand by my prediction that Kasich will be the next major candidate to drop out.

Polling soon to look something like this:

Trump 33
Carson 15
Rubio 15
Cruz 12
------------
Bush, Huckabee, Fiorina, Christie, Paul - single digits
Kasich - next major candidate to drop out, and it wouldn't shock me if Bush came after that.
I posted this prediction a little over 3 weeks ago. Now the 3 latest polls (Gravis Marketing, Washington Post, Fox News)

Trump 37, 32, 28
Carson 15, 22, 18
Rubio 14, 11, 14
Cruz 12, 8, 14
Everyone else < 9

Averages:
Trump 32
Carson 18
Rubio 13
Cruz 11

I'd say I got that one pretty damn close!

So my next prediction for another 3 weeks out:

Trump 34
Cruz 20
Rubio 18
Carson 9
All others < 9

If Trump gets the nomination, I could seriously see him picking Cruz as his running mate.

Clinton has it in the bag. Sanders is just stunting.

Iowa is one of those places where oddball candidates can win (think Huckabee and Santorum) and have no chance anywhere else because of their caucus system...
