The numbers are even worse then we thought too.

Obama has 0% chance of being re-elected.

Wow. He's actually being upfront about this.

Considering the strongly AIPAC-friendly portion of Congress has already said they will not support the temporary deal and will be passing more severe sanctions against Iran for coming to this agreement with Western nations to surrender all highly-enriched materials to the west for conversion into non-weaponizable materials I think even a 50% chance of the final deal passing is too sunny.

There are groups in all involved countries who have an interest in ensuring no deal go through (regardless of how beneficial the terms might end up being for their nation), and all it takes is one of these groups having enough sway in their particular country to scuttle a deal.

Meh. This season didn't get good until the last three episodes.

Yea, but if you cut that 50% in half and then double it, you have potatoe% chance and you damn well know it.

What I learned from Homeland this season is that Dana probably hopes for Virginia to expand Medicaid coverage, now that she's dropped out of school and is working as a hotel maid.

Oops, sorry, I should have warned about spoilers- now there's no suspense for people who haven't watched this season yet.

/the Iran angle does seem strange in the story, given what the White House is doing positively

El Dudereno: Meh. This season didn't get good until the last three episodes.


but those last 3 episodes wouldn't be as good without the build-up from the previous 7

Once they dropped the teenage drama, it got better. Just really slow until then.
