  1. I wonder what's behind this decision assuming this is true. Has he been told that he's too unpopular or is it the fact that the Secretary of State is a Democrat so he knows he can't scam the recount?
  2. People are always talking about how the Dems should reach out to but let's be clear about something: outreach takes money. A lot of the same people who want to know why we aren't reaching out to one group or another will then turn around and demand that candidates and the DNC don't take corporate or PAC money. We can't have it both ways.
  3. Saudi Arabia has poured a lot of money into companies like Uber and food delivery services like Doordash and Grubhub because they help keep America dependent on oil.
  4. I've seen other people say that. Personally, I like candidates to be "over prepared" but I also know that a lot of voters are all about "authenticity". Whatever that means in this post truth hellscape. It's a play on Beyonce's Beyhive.
  5. I'm a black woman but I'm only speaking for myself on this one. I think the world of Harris but I just don't feel like this is her moment for all kinds of reasons. Personally, it bothers me that she ran for POTUS two years into her term as senator. People getting elected then immediately running for the next It's a pet peeve of mine. But I also know that's not an issue for the average voter. I just feel like there's something off about her campaign. Not her as a candidate but the campaign. I wish I could explain it but I can't Except to say that...the KHIVE does her more harm than good. The "time for an upgrade" tweet is a good example.
  6. Sherrod Brown has been making the talk show rounds with the release of his book and he's been getting asked about M4A. He's not really a supporter of it. I like his ideas. Protect and shore up the ACA Add a public option Let people sign up for Medicare at the age of 50 or 55 Let the government negotiate drug prices the way it already does for the VA. All of that will get us closer to Universal Health Care way faster than tearing everything up and trying to implement M4A.
  7. I don't think people in the party would vote for Trump. But the moderates and independents we need in the EC states definitely would. Except if she tries to tack to the center her base will revolt. This is why I say she will lose. She's not a coalition candidate. She's the exact opposite. If we run her then not only will we lose the White House she'll destroy us downballot.
  8. It might. If he pursues this until the end, it will end up being decided by members of the General Assembly which is made up entirely of Republicans. Let's be honest, they are going to try like hell steal this election and it could work. https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/06/politics/what-is-a-recanvass/index.html
  9. I'm really curious what was going on today. Was the screamer with the seizure a plant? Was he there to remind Stone what he faces if he talks too much? Was Stone sick because he was hungover or dopesick? Or perhaps was he just terrified? Or was he just faking the whole thing for sympathy like his buddies Manafort and Assange? I know I sound like a crackpot but it's really hard to know what's real or not with this circus.
  10. That's the problem with national polls. The coasts are over represented. I focus only on state polls.
  11. There's no dynamic candidate to be found because the Democratic electorate is really fractured right now. There are people who found Beto dynamic. Others who found Kirsten Gillibrand dynamic. What we need is someone who can build a coalition across constituencies.
  12. I like Beto a lot but I'm glad to see him go. As for Harris, this is just not her moment. She'll run again probably in 2024 after serving four years as the AG in the Biden Administration.
  13. I thought it was sarcasm but apparently it's not. It's scary how many of these people have been flying under the radar.
  14. Once again: trust nothing that the NY Times has to say about Democrats.
  15. He really was. I stopped going to church years ago for all kinds of reasons but I have to say that I really needed this service today. All the current...stuff has been wreaking havoc with my depression and anxiety and it was exactly what I needed to hear. Not the religion so much but just to be reminded of what it's like to be part of a loving community. The concept of helping the vulnerable and caring for the least of us. The wonderful lessons of strength and love that Cummings showed to his family and community. The celebration of a life well lived. I needed this so much right now.
