Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton won Washington State's primaries Tuesday. It looks all but certain the two will face-off in November. But Bernie Sanders has vowed to stay in the race until the convention.

Soon after Tuesday's Indiana primaries, both Ted Cruz and John Kasich suspended their campaigns, leaving Donald Trump the apparent GOP nominee. And even though Bernie Sanders pulled out a narrow win over Hillary Clinton, it is all but certain she will be the Democratic nominee. So at this point it looks as if the candidates who will run in the general election are two people who, according to recent polls, most Americans just do not like all that much. And members of both parties are left asking, "Now what?"

We're in the middle of a full week without a primary, but that doesn't mean there has been a lull in the race to the White House. The candidates and their campaigns are keeping things interesting, if not all that presidential.

After months of campaigning, we are finally just days away from the first vote on the path to the presidency, the Iowa caucuses. Followed just a week later by the New Hampshire primary.

With less than two months left before the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primaries, the Republican presidential candidates met Tuesday night for their last debate of 2015. And the Democrats will hold their last debate of the year this Saturday.

The attacks in Paris last Friday placed national security and the continued threat from the Islamic State and other terrorist groups at the forefront of political discussions this week.

Political outsiders Donald Trump and Ben Carson continue to lead the Republican field of candidates by wide margins, Hillary is polling far ahead of Bernie Sanders, though his numbers actually went up after the first Democratic debate. And now neither has to worry about Vice President Joe Biden jumping into the race.

With two debates under their belts, the remaining Republican presidential contenders continue the fight, though The Donald and Dr. Ben Carson are still leading the polls. 

With the presidential election still almost fifteen months away, many of us are already getting tired of hearing from and about the candidates, and the potential candidates, for president. But with, at last count, 22 declared candidates, the rising popularity of Bernie Sanders, Hillary’'s emails and the Trump, Trump, Trump of The Donald, for those who follow politics for a living, it is truly a wonderful time to be alive.
