Thank you so much for this, stillone!

"How about a warm welcome for our recent under-the-bus inductees?

It's quite a distinguished crowd.
Paul Krugman, nobel laureate, liberal economist, been right about economic issues more than anyone else over the last decade. His sin was giving an honest, kool-aid free assessment of Bernie's healthcare plan. Can't have that! Re-education camp for you!

Bill de Blasio, NYC mayor, one of the leading progressive politicians in America. His crime was going to Iowa to campaign for Hillary. Under the bus you go!

Rachel Maddow, liberal MSNBC anchor, one of the smartest voices in the media. A little too smart for the Bernie crowd, it turns out. For pointing out the obvious fact that the GOP is employing the same strategy Claire McCaskill used with Todd Akin -- trying to help Bernie win the primary -- she's been sentence to an indefinite period of under-the-bus detention.

Planned Parenthood WTF, you may ask? Yes, PP had the temerity to endorse the candidate that supports and represents their cause more strongly than anyone who has ever run for president. That's no good at all. So Bernie dismisses them as "establishment." The good news is, they'll be under the bus along with the rest of us.

On edit, how could I forget? NARAL and HRC. Bernie fans seem to really dislike progressive organizations. Particularly progressive organizations which endorse progressive candidates.

And an honorable mention goes to...
Martin O'Malley Not exactly thrown under the bus, but close. Bernie fans have apparently decided that Martin really wants his supporters to caucus for Bernie rather than for him in the upcoming Iowa caucus. Yes, really.

Pretty soon we're going to need a few more buses..".

Thank you for that, Hekate.. Hillary actually listens to People and it really does shines through.

It's all Hillary's Fault!

Ouch! from your link...

“Then-Senator Obama ran for President to tackle longstanding challenges that our country had debated for decades but was unable to resolve. A ‘politics as the art of the possible’ candidate,” Ben LaBolt, a national spokesman for Obama's 2012 campaign, said in an e-mail. “Senator Sanders has been in Congress for decades but hasn't tackled any major longstanding challenges—he's been too busy shouting his point of view across the aisle with few results.”

Good on you, Coolest! Hawaii has Caucuses March 26th

Hillary got the toughest question of the night, and she handled it like a pro.

When a Sanders-leaning voter at CNN’s Democratic town hall asked Clinton about charges that she is dishonest and double-dealing, Clinton launched into a short review of her long, committed political career.

“They throw all this stuff at me and I’m still standing,” Clinton said. “I’ve been on the front lines of change and progress since I was your age. I have been fighting to give kids and women and the people who are left out and left behind the chance to make the most of their own lives.” Clinton went on to reflect on her time rallying for expanded healthcare coverage as First Lady: “I’ve taken on the status quo again and again. I’ve had millions of dollars spent against me... The drug companies, the insurance companies spent millions against me.”

Clinton closed by adding that “if it were easy, hey, there wouldn’t be any contest. But it’s not easy... You have to have somebody who is a proven, proven fighter. Somebody who has taken them on and won.”

Here she was at her best because she wasn’t making any effort to present herself as especially millennial-friendly or fresh. She was presenting herself exactly as she is: a politician who’s spent a lot of time in the trenches, whose station and experience in the halls of power you either take or leave.

Paul Krugman on President Obama:

“He’s doing more to advance the progressive agenda than anyone since L.B.J.”

I feel for all those who had their heads buried and missed all this.

OMG! I love that man.. Mr President, Sir!

“ one thing everybody understands is that this job right here, you don’t have the luxury of just focusing on one thing,” a relaxed and reflective Obama told me in his most expansive discussion of the 2016 race to date.....

When I asked Obama if Clinton is facing “unfair scrutiny” this time around, his answer was a clipped “yes” – and he even admitted a tinge of regret that his own campaign had been so hard on her eight years ago.

But when I asked him if Sanders reminded him of himself in 2008, he quickly shot me down: “I don’t think that's true.”

Hell No, it's not true!

Thank you so much, sufrommich!

Marvelous! thank you, rivers!
