Clinton apparently lost 15% of her base, compared to 2008...

Bernie wins Oregon! MSNBC calls it! no link yet. nt

How embarrassing for HRC- to be so evenly tied, this late in the game, so close in Kentucky

the election there could go either way, until the results are certified. Wow.

I see some here are pretending that Democratic delegates weren't

removed nor had their registrations changed between April and this past weekend. Yet it clearly appears to have happened. I won't mention names, but they are pretending it didn't happen, just like when they disenfranchised so many in NY.

From belief to resentment in Indiana

HUNTINGTON, Ind. —Chris Setser worked a 12-hour graveyard shift while his children slept, cleaned the house while they were at school and then went outside to wait for the bus bringing them home. He stood on the porch as he often did and surveyed the life he had built. The lawn was trimmed. The stairs were swept. The weekly family schedule was printed on a chalkboard. A sign near the door read, “A Stable Home Is A Happy Home,” and now a school bus came rolling down a street lined by wide sidewalks and American flags toward a five-bedroom house on the corner lot.

“Right on time,” Setser called out to the driver, waving to his children as they came off the bus.

It had been two months since Setser and 800 others in Huntington were told their manufacturing jobs would soon be outsourced to Mexico, but so far nothing about his routine had changed. He was still making $17 an hour on the third-shift line at United Technologies. The first layoffs wouldn’t take place for a year, maybe more. “We’ll be fine because we’ve always been fine,” Setser had said again and again, to his fiancee, his four children, and most of all to himself, but he was beginning to wonder if the loss of something more foundational in Huntington was underway.

Into the house came 10-year-old Johnathan, who had heard a rumor at school that factory workers would also be moving to Mexico. “No way, bud,” Setser told him. “We’re staying right here.”

What Happened at the Nevada “Democratic” State Convention?

What Happened at the Nevada “Democratic” State Convention?

Greetings, my friends! As many of you have probably heard, “tensions were high” at the state convention in Nevada yesterday. Now, because CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of the usual “news” outlets seem to have forgotten to mention it, I’ve decided (as usual) to step in to inform you all and clean up the mess of misinformation.

You see, all of this happened because there has been a bit of a misunderstanding between the “Democratic” Party and ourselves — they’ve been laboring under the impression that we — you know, the people — are supposed to subserviently accept what the democratic party officials have decreed but — meanwhile — we (having been misled by the word “democratic” being in their name) thought that we would get to have a say in choosing our nominee for president. As you can guess, this embarrassing miscommunication has led to a lot of confusion — but worry not! I believe that we can clear all of that up in this article by taking a look at a few numbers. First up, let’s talk about…

1,693 and 1,662

Those were the numbers of both Clinton and Sanders delegates that were at the state “democratic” convention in Nevada on Saturday — well, actually, those are the numbers of delegates that were allowed to participate in the convention on Saturday — and, as you can see:

1,693 – 1,662 = 31

Clinton had 31 more delegates inside of the convention — which wasn’t very good news for the Sanders supporters yesterday. But wait! There’s another number that you should probably know about and that is…

I'm with her

husband:

For those who are desperately begging for Sanders to get out

of the race, I have often stated here that we should not disenfranchise voters (more than we already have this primary). I have often stated here that we should count every vote first, and allow all voices to be head in a vibrant, healthy democracy. I have often stated we should not abandon the 50-state strategy we used to embrace.

So please stop calling for Bernie to suspend his campaign. Hillary doesn't approve of that nonsense! Hillary supports counting EVERY vote!
