    I'm just starting to sort through this stuff but it doesn't look to me like the organization wanted to use Bernie's religion. That was just an idea tossed out there by a staffer. Seeing as how it never happened that tells me that he got overruled. A lot of this freak out is about bad brainstorming.
     
    Frankly I'm glad to see there were some people who didn't want to treat him with kid gloves. This guy joined the party just so he could exploit its resources then spent his campaign railing against it and its key constituencies. Poor people don't vote, black people were in the tank for Clinton (which...umm yeah), the south was a waste of time. My biggest annoyance with this news is that it just makes the Berniacs go back to hashtagging all over the internet again.

    There are a lot of wildcards in this election so I think it's important not to take anything for granted. You've got Republicans who say they won't vote for Trump so the question is will they vote for Clinton, third party or stay home? On the other side you've got the bitter Berniacs who won't vote for Clinton. The same question goes for them, will they vote for Trump (I think that's a solid no) but they could stay home or vote third party. In both scenarios, it's down ballot candidates who get caught in the crossfire. Even if the Berniacs won't vote for Clinton, they could help flip Congress if they can see past their spite.
    Of course Trump could be a turnout machine for Latinos, Muslims, women, and LGBT but he's certainly a turnout machine for the white grievance crowd. At the end of the day the question will be which of these groups can or will cancel out the others.

    Ted Cruz has no convictions. This is just him clawing at the spotlight. It's no different than his filibuster. The man has no concern for anything other than power. He's just positioning himself to consolidate power from the ashes.

    It's even more frightening when you consider that Trump has hinted that even if he wins, he might quit. Pence is essentially running for president now.

    I think polling has become less and less accurate in this post landline age. Phone polls oversample the elderly and rural.

    That's actually the thing that I most admire about Hillary and is the reason I'm voting for her. No one on the face of the earth knows better what the GOP is capable of and how far they will sink. I love Obama but he wasted a lot of time and energy trying to reason with people who hated him from day one and were perfectly happy to watch the world burn if it meant they could injure him in the tiniest way. Clinton knows the score. She knows who the enemy is and she knows where a lot of bodies are buried. That's who I want in the White House.

    I don't know why these folks think hearings are a good idea. She kicked their ass during the Benghazi hearings.

    Unfortunately the proponents of austerity will never admit that their policies are a failure.

    Just to clarify, some of us came from slaves. Immigration implies choice which a lot of our ancestors never had.

    It's kind of hysterical to me that a country that colonized every piece of land it encountered for hundreds of years decided that it didn't like answering to people in Brussels.

    Damn. I remember when CNN was a real news network.

    Ah, now we've reached the part of the program where Donnie looks for other people to blame for his failures. It took longer than I thought.

    I'm glad to hear it. I tend to stay away from political Twitter for my own sanity.

    The fact that so few people are calling him out on his absence shows how irrelevant he's become.
