Democratic U.S. Presidential Candidates ala ROLF!

Although the party and the cable channels would like the world to think there's only one person running for the nomination to be the Democratic candidate for president in this year's election, there are actually three major contenders. We at NUELOW Games have been as guilty as everyone else at only shining the spotlight on Hillary Clinton (with a celebration of her birthday, and featuring her as a playable character in two different Battle Scenarios), but we here-by make amends by providing ROLF! statistics for Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley--the two campaigners that few people know about. (Why do few people know about them? Because the Democratic National Committee had sponsored few debates and they've always scheduled them in such a way to make sure that virtually no one is going to watch them.)

We hope you enjoy this public service in the interest of avoiding the Coronation of Hillary that she and the party are seeking. (You can also use these statistics to play through a match-up of the candidates and make your own predictions about who might win in the general election. The ROLF! stats for two of the Republican hopefuls can be found here.)
