Nice perspective.. May we get the best deal possible for all concerned..

"Yes, it is secret from you and me. As Ruth Marcus correctly explained, “This is not secrecy for secrecy’s sake; it’s secrecy for the sake of negotiating advantage. Exposing U.S. bargaining positions or the offers of foreign counterparts to public view before the agreement is completed would undermine the outcome.” But TPP is not secret to Warren. She has read it."

Senator Ron Wyden is happy..

"In Washington state, for example, exports of everything from apples to airplanes have soared 40 percent over four years to total nearly $91 billion in 2014, according to The Seattle Times. About two in five jobs there are now tied to trade.

Small wonder that U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, a liberal Democrat from neighboring Oregon, has strongly supported fast-track authority."

"But then we have Warren stating with a straight face that handing negotiating authority to Obama would “give Republicans the very tool they need to dismantle Dodd-Frank.”

Huh? Obama swatted down the remark as wild, hypothetical speculation, noting he engaged in a “massive” fight with Wall Street to get the reforms passed. “And then I sign a provision that would unravel it?” he told political writer Matt Bai.

"Warren's amendment split Democrats, with Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asking senators to vote "no" and suggesting ahead of the vote that Warren was trying to combat a problem that didn't exist.

"We have never lost an investment dispute case and never paid a dime in penalties. Here's our record: 17 cases, 17 victories," Wyden said.

Wow.. Edwards and Kucinich.. I do remember those Edwards' supporters were brutal in their

support. Whoa!

And, look at how many votes they got between them! Big Numbers.. 3x as much as then Senators Clinton and Obama.

Yeah, good ol Edwards and Kucinich.. Mahalo, Starry Messenger

I'm sorry you got a hide for pointing the lack of diversity since it's true. they are so sensitive

.. some of those Bernie supporters. But, they don't mind heaping hate on President Obama and Hillary Clinton.

And, they can accuse African Americans support for Hillary as "Voting Against their self interest..".. like they're Low information voters. BTW, that didn't get a Hide but should have.

I can provide a link if necessary.

It's not truth.. it's ignorant cheap pot shots. You have no idea all the progress the Obama Admin

has Accomplished.. all you do is smear in the name of Bernie.

Some of Sen Sanders supporters on DU do him a huge disservice(not all.. there are those who actually appreciate President Obama). Whomever wins the Dem Nom will not win the GE without the Obama Coalition. They will want the President campaigning with them and for them. They won't be running from his Accomplishments while in Office. They know what's been happening. Too bad some his supporters are so clueless.

"Obama’s Retirement Plan: Help Black Kids" For one important thing..

After he leaves the White House, friends say the president will return to his passion: helping African Americans through his My Brother's Keeper Alliance.

What is in Barack Obama’s heart? Underneath that cool exterior, it can be hard to tell. When he leaves office in 2017, he will be a fit 55-year-old with decades of productive life likely ahead of him. How will he use them?

I went to the Bronx on Monday with a hunch that Obama was about to tell us; and I wasn’t disappointed.

At the risk of emphasizing his status as a lame duck, Obama announced the establishment of My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, a nonprofit outgrowth of the My Brother’s Keeper program in the White House that the president announced more than a year ago, with little fanfare from a jaded press and public.

Even highly informed people have never heard of “MBK,” but here was Obama, a la Joe Biden without the profanity, ad libbing that this was “a big deal.”


MOre..
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/05/05/how-obama-will-spend-the-rest-of-his-life.html

Course a lot of us have heard of MBK because we've been paying attention to what the President has actually done during his time in Office!

I'm really glad too, Rex! Mahalo!

I tell ya one thing, Hoyt.. Whomever wins the Nom is not going to Win the GE without the Obama

Coalition.

So they can use whatever letters of the alphabet they want in their little hate filled "Trojan Horse" and "Fucking pos used car salesman" club. The Nominee is going to want to have the President campaigning with them and for them. They won't be running from his Accomplishments while in Office.

"According to the latest CNN/ORC poll, the Obama resurgence is being fueled by the growing economy. Fifty-two percent of respondents called the U.S. economy very or somewhat good while 48% said the economy was very or somewhat poor. The President’s approval rating has increased with 18-29-year-olds (57%), women (51%), Democrats (88%), and liberal Democrats (97%).

snip//

Many supporters of the President will view his increasing approval numbers as Obama finally getting credit for the economic turnaround after pulling the country back from the brink of a potential depression when he took office, but these numbers could foreshadow a Democratic strong point in 2016. If the economy keeps growing, Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, will be able to run on maintaining and expanding the Obama economy.

And, your post isn't a "diversion".. it's a fact.. they can't handle.

This was my reply last Tues to Maggie's OP.. thanks for making it an OP in Hillary's group, she..

"Clinton is banking on the Obama coalition to win"..

she is smart.. there's a lot of votes out here that went for the President. No one is going to win running from his accomplishments.. even though some on the internet like to paint him as the "Trojan Horse".. that's just more horseshit from the usuals who can't see the forest.

In real life President Obama's approval ratings are quite high.. Dem candidates would be silly to disregard this..
