Clinton, Obama, Sanders all scorch Trumps bigoted ass.

Way to go Team Dems. Our party and our candidate is what stands between this country and fucking Mussolini, or at best Berlusconi. The Left and the Center Left are about to kick the Far Right's ass. The Center Right no longer exists.

Why can the general election no be discussed in GD.

I posted a thread showing HRC 7 points ahead of Trump in Kansas. It was locked because it mentioned Clinton. I appealed it and the tribunal thingy wouldn' t unlock it. A bit odd not being able to discuss rhe election, no? Wil we not ever discuss the election in GD? What is thw deal?

Guns were once the one issue I was closer to Repubs on. Not anymore.

My opinion hasnt changed. They have simply become so extreme that I just dont agree with them. Universal background checks is a no brainer. Having said that I cant support tying gun ownership to a mysterious terror list that nobody can or will explain.

Bernie' s California numbers will be higher because of the AP announcement.

People who like him more but think HRC will be a stronger nominee will now vote for him without the fear that he will actually get the nomination.

So win or lose his numbers will be higher than if there were still really a contest.

God. I knew the anti Party trolls had been stinking this place up. The RW sources that are being all

are stunning. I bet some people have really been lulled into thinking they will be able to continue with that. They have really put a big spotlight on themselves.

Should come in handy in about 9 days.

Bernie Sanders is taking a big risk: If he doesnít drop out soon, he could become a villain

The notion that Bernie and his surrogates continue to behave as if the superdelegates are still in play is the beginning of the end of Bernieís reputation, even with some of his supporters, including online journalists who are disavowing their support.

There was a time when we could look to Bernie as the conscience of the left. Today, however, his moral high ground position is rapidly evaporating. Among other reasons, Bernie and his people have been deliberately swindling the public about delegate math and the alleged fluidity of superdelegates for weeks now and, in the past several days, the deception has grown thicker than ever. (Bernie told the National Press Club, for example, that a majority of pledged delegates is 2,383, even though itís actually 2,026.) The Bernie campaign is telling us that somehow the superdelegates, who have affirmed their support to networks and publications of record, will, for the first time ever, inexplicably abandon the winner of a majority of pledged delegates and the winner of the popular vote for a relatively untested democratic-socialist becauseÖ why? California? May polling for the November election? Rally attendance?

This is like cajoling a homeowner to sell a house to a buyer who doesnít have the money, but who just really, really, really wants it, and all their friends say they deserve to own it. Indeed, suggesting that supers donít count because they havenít officially voted at the convention is like announcing that you havenít eaten lunch until youíve fully digested it. Itís like hearing from contrarian wonks who wait for the electoral college to hold its ceremonial votes in December before acknowledging the obvious winner of the November election.

Can't wait to see Bernie campaigning for HRC.

We clearly have the awesome party.

What an awesome time to be a Democrat. I am just beside myself with joy.

Now let's take the fight to that fascist wannabe tin horn dictator.

Now that we have a (presumptive) nominee and are behind her now.

Good race. Seriously. The Sanders people worked hard. Now let's kick Trump's ass.

Edited to say: Holy shit this is exciting.
