Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton wins backing of S.C. LGBT rights group


COLUMBIA
South Carolina’s most prominent LGBT advocacy group has endorsed Hillary Clinton in the S.C. Democratic presidential primary.

“Hillary Clinton has a decades-long record of fighting for equality and has demonstrated her belief that our country is at its best when we are inclusive and open,” said Jeff Ayers, S.C. Equality Coalition executive director.

“She knows our fight for equal rights is far from finished, which is why we need her leadership as we continue to make progress,”Ayers said, citing Clinton’s work fighting AIDS and promoting protections for the lesbian-gay-bisexual-and-transgender community as reasons she won the group’s backing.

Malissa Burnette, who chairs S.C. Equality’s board of directors, said the decision to endorse Clinton was unanimous. “It is refreshing and rare to find a candidate who is unequivocal and fearless in her support of equality for all.”

This, on supporting Hillary: This Progressive Doesn’t Need Your Lectures

Connie Schultz writes...

Have I mentioned lately how much I’m enjoying the lectures from self-avowed liberals who insist my respect for Hillary Clinton is proof that I am not a “real progressive”?

I haven’t had this much fun since I had my sinuses packed with 40 miles of gauze after polyp surgery.

It’s not just men — my sisters, you disappoint me — but it’s particularly entertaining when the reprimands come from young white men who were still braying for their blankies when I started getting paid to give my opinion. They popped out special, I guess.

I became a columnist in the fall of 2002. Immediately, I found myself on the receiving end of right-wing vitriol so vile it made “The Sopranos” cuddly by comparison. My first death threats came within weeks, after I wrote that the Confederate flag should be retired. After I supported stronger gun control measures, an NRA zealot posted on a gun blog what he thought was my home address and identified me as “unarmed.” I was a single mother at the time. I bought new locks and kept writing.

Clinton Gains Support From 170 African American Women Leaders

...All of these black women will rally African American voters around Clinton's candidacy in the upcoming South Carolina primary on Feb. 27 and March primary states.

The women will serve as surrogates for Clinton, a Democrat, and according to the campaign, they will host debate watch parties, neighborhood meetings, and women-only phone banks.........

Some of the black women leaders who endorsed Clinton include, actress Angela Bassett; Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner, who was killed by police in New York; actress Vivica Fox; Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in Florida; Alexis Herman, former Secretary of Labor; Alice Huffman, an NAACP board member; Shonda Rhimes, Executive Producer of the hit television show "Scandal"; actress Holly Robinson-Peete; and Democrats Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington D.C.; Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas; Rep. Maxine Waters of California; and Rep. Donna Edwards of Maryland.
.........
For his part, Sanders still insists that he can attract a sizable portion of the black vote, but it's a daunting challenge for Sanders considering Clinton has longstanding relationships in the black community, dating back to when her husband, Bill Clinton, was in the White House.

"Hillary knows the reality of women earning less than men, confronting barriers to advancing in the workforce, and politicians interfering with a woman's right to make her own health care decisions is even starker for African American women,"........

Hillary has a new anger translater

These are snips from "An All-Caps Explosion of Feelings Regarding the Liberal Backlash Against Hillary Clinton"

So good. I think the author is the one on the right?


......So since Hillary cannot yell, since by the virtue of being sane and not a white man she is forced to be the biggest adult in the room, just like Obama has had to for eight goddamn years, I will yell for her.

FIRST AND FUCKING FOREMOST, COOL, YOU LIKE BERNIE'S WISHES AND DREAMS APPROACH TO POLITICS. "FREE COLLEGE FOR EVERYONE AND A GODDAMN PONY." YES, THAT SOUNDS FUCKING WONDERFUL BUT DO YOU THINK HILLARY COULD EVEN SAY THOSE WORDS WITHOUT FOX NEWS LITERALLY BURYING HER ALIVE IN TAMPONS AND CRUCIFIXES?
....

YOU DON'T LIKE THAT SHE PLAYS THE GAME? THAT SHE HAS TIES TO THE ESTABLISHMENT? FOR ONE THING, THAT'S HOW SHIT FUCKING GETS DONE. FOR THE OTHER THING, THE BIGGEST THING, A WOMAN DOESN'T GET THE FUCKING OPTION *NOT* TO PLAY THE GAME. NOT NOW. NOT YET. WE ALL WISH THINGS WERE DIFFERENT BUT THEY DON'T BECOME DIFFERENT WHILE WE'RE ATTACKING THE FUCKING PERSON WHO CAN MAKE THAT POSSIBLE.
...

IT IS ABSOLUTELY GUT WRENCHING THAT THIS BADASS, IMPORTANT WOMAN HAS BEEN DIMINSHED AND WRITTEN OFF AND HATED HER WHOLE CAREER, HER WHOLE EXISTENCE AS A PUBLIC FIGURE. YOU LIKE BERNIE BECAUSE HE DOESN'T PLAY THE GAME, BUT FOR HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON, FOR A WOMAN, SHE HAS HAD NO OTHER CHOICE.
BUT THOSE WHO COME AFTER HER MIGHT.

The pieces don't do it justice. lol I tried to really break it up so the caps weren't too annoying. Read it all if you can.

Sanders rally chant: 'She's a liar!' until they cut them off



DES MOINES, Iowa — The room at Bernie Sanders' rally here turned ice cold when Hillary Clinton's speech took over the televisions here.

The crowd booed loudly at first, then cheered when the sound cut out. The sound soon returned and Clinton was drowned out by further boos when she said "I'm a progressive who gets things done."

It escalated from there: Chants of "She's a liar!" took over the room before the campaign just entirely shut off the stream, cutting away from MSNBC entirely.

Author Anne Rice Switches from Bernie to Hillary

Anne Rice ‏@AnneRiceAuthor 8h8 hours ago
Anne here. All eyes are on Iowa. This is one fascinating election all right. I'm behind Hillary Clinton all the way.

Anne here answering the question -- why do I support Hillary now over Bernie? ---- I love Bernie and I love Hillary. I'll vote for whoever is nominated! But I believe Hillary can stop Trump, and I'm not sure Bernie can. I believe Hillary will be the more pragmatic and effective president. I've been watching and listening and this is my conclusion. Hillary I hope will be the nominee. --- . Trump has practically secured the Republican nomination which I never dreamed possible; and I do believe Hillary is the candidate to win against him. ---- And I've come to see that Hillary is the most qualified person ever to run for president, and I've come to the conclusion that Bernie's great heart and idealism may not do as well in the reality of the White House as Hillary's great experience and strength. ---- Hillary's problem as I see it is that she is not a sympathetic or charismatic candidate. She does not communicate warmth and passion the way that Bernie does, or Trump does or Bill Clinton continues to do. But that is a small matter. What matters is her commitment, her experience, her knowledge, her principles, her strength under continuous attack, and her effectiveness at getting things done. She was a great Secretary of State. She was a fine Senator. She was a great First Lady and she tried with all her might and main to bring us some kind of workable health care for all Americans years ago. I love her and support her. I hope Bernie will wind up as VP or in the Cabinet. He will have huge popular support for his brilliant ideas. I hope this answers the question fully as to why I appeared to change my mind. As I said, I have always loved both candidates.

Hillary up by 3 pts in final Iowa poll

Greg Dworkin ‏@DemFromCT 1m1 minute ago
“Most of the ways you look at it, she’s stronger than the three-point race would suggest,” said pollster J. Ann Selzer.

This is supposed to be the gold standard of Iowa caucus polls

80% said it's time for a woman president. She is stronger with women than Sanders is with youth voters

Jennifer Jacobs ‏@JenniferJJacobs 6m6 minutes ago
Clinton's support is more solid than Sanders', and her advantage with women overrides his advantage with youth voters, Iowa Poll shows.

Here's the write up from Bloomberg-

Only one in three likely Democratic voters in the survey are first-time caucus-goers, who break decidedly toward Sanders. That compares with 60 percent in the final pre-caucus survey of 2008, when a wave of young voters and new participants helped Barack Obama overpower Clinton in Iowa.

In addition, the survey finds Clinton’s support is deeper and sturdier than Sanders’ across many areas, with 53 percent saying they'd be very enthusiastic with her as the party's nominee. Most tellingly, 83 percent of her voters say their minds are made up to support Clinton.

“Most of the ways you look at it, she’s stronger than the three-point race would suggest,” said pollster J. Ann Selzer.

Roxanne Caldwell Fee, 74, a retired teacher from Knoxville, said she was “very proud” that America elected an African-American man as president in 2008, "but now I want to have a woman in there." Four in five surveyed say it's time for a woman president.

Hillary Clinton calls for Democratic debate to be held in Flint, Michigan

Hillary Clinton calls for Democratic debate to be held in Flint, Michigan

edit to add Politico's write-up -It's easier to read

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — Hillary Clinton's campaign is calling for an additional Democratic debate to be held in Flint, Michigan, the site of an ongoing water contamination crisis that her campaign has focused on in recent weeks.
“We’ve agreed to an additional debate in N.H. and are currently in discussions to agree to additional debates — we think one of them should be in Flint," said campaign chairman John Podesta in a statement on Saturday afternoon, referring to the ongoing negotiations over scheduling new debates. The Sanders and Clinton camps agreed in principle to schedule new ones earlier on Saturday.
Story Continued Below
"The water crisis in Flint is unconscionable. It’s been going on for years, as the people of Flint repeatedly asked for help and were ignored by state government. As Hillary has said, this would not have happened in a wealthy community. It was only when the crisis was finally brought to national attention that real steps were taken to begin to address the immediate issues like access to clean water and health monitoring, and longer term health and infrastructure challenges," said Podesta.
