If there's anyone left who doesn't yet think McAuliffe is a trainwreck as a political operative -- not to mention a human being -- this interview should convince you.

35. Hey
I just wanted to tell you how important it is to me that you post this program each week on DU. I had to give up HBO, as I didn't see the extra money as worth it, and the price went up too, which pissed me off. So, keep up the good work, and post as much of it as you can, or you are allowed.

In a just world, this would be on open, free television. But you hardly ever see the good stuff available to everyone. Sadly, most of the good things are buried.

I watched The American Drug War on Showtime the other day, and thought, what a great thing if we could all be able to see this show. But sadly, only a small portion will be allowed to see it, due to media restrictions, and manipulation. It has been a hidden truth, and they want to keep it hidden.

Likewise, Maher comes closer to the real American problems, also going against the grain of decades of media propaganda.

36. If you go to YouTube and do a search ...
You can usually find a lot of clips from Real Time with Bill Maher.

Someone has posted the whole of the March 7th edition in little chunks.

Part 1 is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4-vGaDAXHs

31. They sure were compared to what targeted support could have accomplished.
He wasted so much effort and money on unwinnable races - and his handling of this primary race has endangered our chances in the GE.
I think he may have ulterior motives.

9. Are you? TM was the greatest DNC chair in modern history.
Without him and the Clintons, the party would have died..... and Howard Dean is trying his best to erode all of the gains TM accomplished..... sad.

19. the party would have died?
losing the house,senate,and the majority of the governors during clinton`s presidency is a fine accomplishment is`t it. the party has been dead since 1968 and now because dean figured out there were 50+1 states we may have a chance to have a solid party and government.

ya that terry is a genius

27. um... Terry Mcauliffe presided over two of the worst defeats in Dem history...
He was the DNC chair in what might have been the darkest days Dems ever had, a succession of defeats and chaos and spinless rolling over that brought us what we have today. The only thing Terry Mcauliffe, who I actually like, was ever good at was raising money, and Howard Dean has proven better at than too. And just exactly how would the party have died? By all of a sudden discovering how to win? The Clintons, who I love in many ways, ushered in a major era of losing for the Democratic party. Sure Bill could win for himself, but the Dems got rolled on everything else. About the only thing Howard Dean is eroding is all those gains Dems made in learning how to lose to Republicans.

Honestly, you might have to go back and unlearn everything you think you know when you start bragging about a DNC chair who lost everything in sight, and ripping on another DNC chair who has done nothing but win and build an unprecendented grassroots movement. That's one of the most bizarre trains of thought I have ever heard. It's flat goofy. Seriously, what part of losing in every mid-term election since '94 then two straight presidential elections, makes the Clintons and Terry Mcauliffe better than say, Howard Dean who built the strategy and movement in what was probably the greatest electoral victory in Democratic Party history?

10. No, sadly he's deadly serious.
Personally, I think he's from that universe where Spock has a beard. Maybe McAuliffe is competent over there.

15. Lol. You actually found a nerd that knows the spock reference.
I remember what a banner day it was around here when Dean became the chair. McAullife was, imo, a terrible DNC chair. The only victory he had under his belt was Clinton 1, and he and the likes of Carville took the Democratic party in the milquetoast, timid, corporate direction. I'm actually stunned that anyone here would find McAullife a friend to the democratic party. :shrug:

3. I don't know him as a human being
But I'm called he was pressed about the crap his campaign is pulling.

And he was CLEARLY dodging that last answer - trying to make it all about the Superdelegates because he knows, most likely, Obama will win the pledged delegates, the most states and the popular vote by the end.

17. I never have bought that post 9/11 world crap from Bush. I'm sure not buying it from Terry.
If 9/11 changed this Country. The terrorist have won. Besides we have a Constitutional duty to perserve unto our posterity. It says nothing about until 9/11 or until people crash planes into buildings. We still have a constitution that provides for our government. THAT HASN'T CHANGED!

13. If THAT guy was the DNC chair, no wonder the Democrats kept snatching "defeat
from the jaws of victory" the past years/decade. Class A idiot. "Toughen up Bill", what in the world? Not answering a SINGLE question in a straight way!

20. Terry's good at
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 07:12 AM by The Wizard
Blowing CEOs for corporate donations. He won with Bill Clinton like Carville did; everything else was a failure. To eschew the base of the party for corporate dollars is a 1990s strategy and doesn't work now. Who will sit through a political TV ad with a remote control in hand?
The Clinton's have wrecked the Democratic Party with their Machiavellian triangulation policy.
Obama has tapped into the new dynamic and the Clintons are playing by the old rules.
If the Democrats didn't lose Congress in 94, Bill wouldn't have been impeached. That the Republicans maintained a congressional majority until 06 is the reason the DLC has to be marginalized.
Obama has far more individual donors, and these donors all now have a stake in the game; thus, they represent boots on the ground, something McAuliffe can't produce.
Howard Dean has provided the leadership for we the people to take our government back, at least to some degree, while the Clinton campaign represents the status quo.
The real battle is between the corporate elites and the working class.
Terry McAuliffe is a dinosaur. With the economy on the brink of disaster, and living standards dropping for most Americans, catering to greedy corporations is a loser.
Which ever candidate talks about alternative energy as a national security issue will win.

24. With Camp Managers like these
Trying to make Hillary's case of being ready on day one, with not a single reference to experience she so claims to have, sounds like babaling.

These guys would get totally destroyed by their own miscalculations... Because there is a lot of garbage coming out of the Clinton campaign... The American People have seen enough garbage... We're in desparate need of something new... Something good... Something we'd feel good about bringing into our home... We normally throw the garbage out and leave it by the side of the road...

If the Clintons think they can win by bringing this filthy garbage into our homes, they are seriously mistaken...

25. Am I the only one who
thinks someone pulled the plug on that interview? I was watching it live with my wife last night and thats the first thing I said to her right after it happened. It seems to me they didn't like the way it was going. Maybe no one told them of the questions before hand? What say you DUers?

26. I do
I thought this too, because of the reactions of Maher and his techs.

They were shocked they saw that screen, it seemed to be a disconnection they're weren't used to. That was no simple technical difficulty. Then when Maher asked his crew if Terry was even on audio, the crew was pretty confident that Terry wasn't coming back.

Colin Powell had an interview that was cut short by a pissed off Bush aide, maybe somebody was taking notes.

28. I think it was the anwser
Terry gave as to the experience Bill Clinton had in 1992, when not being able to site any experience, Terry went on to say "Hillary Clinton has much more experience than Bill"... That's a bit of a shock... So much for the argument of Barack not having experience; And what specifics of Hillary experience has been sited so far....

Terry F'd up and the campaign pulled the plug on the interview...

All he was prepared for was the "Bullshit side of the answer".

The HRC Campaign has been dishing out the "Bullshit side of the answers" for the past several weeks.

From the Maher crowd, it's clear the support of Barack Obama seemed close to 90%...

33. precisely...
which is why McAuliffe & Rahm Emanuel hate Howard Dean with such a passion. Dean's 50 state strategy is responsible for our majority in the House, and is the model being used by Obama very successfully.

I don't want TM's sleazy ass anywhere near the seat of power in this party.
