Both parties rolling the dice in Nevada

Las Vegas (CNN) - Republicans and Democrats are holding conferences in Las Vegas this week and seven of the leading GOP contenders are participating in a CNN debate here Tuesday - evidence, activists in both parties say, that the state could play a pivotal role not only in the race for the Republican presidential nomination but also in the general election.

"Where Nevada goes so goes the presidency," Republican political consultant Robert Uithoven said noting the state's history of correctly choosing the eventual winner of the White House in general elections.

    Both parties rolling the dice. They must be playing craps. The name of that game would sum up their job performance and complete disregard for the middle class, hard working Americans; you know, the ones that actually get things done and make the hard choices. Don't tell me one side or the other is trying to fix things. They're both "owned" by those that have the money to influence them, not those that actually voted for our elected officials in the first place.
