Thinking down ticket -

assuming Hillary wins the nomination - her path to the GE will definitely have to deal with all the Sanders supporters voting downticket. And, if she wants a strong house, she'll have to support them (blue states where they can win where sanders was yuge) BUT

can they take her super pac money? the bundled money? Or will she keep her promises with all the super delegates that will also need VERY BIG $ support to counter act the disenfranchised Bernie supporters who may hold their nose for Hillary but still want their revolution?

And what about DWS? Should she resign? Should Obama replace her with Tulsi Gabbard before November?

This is all too fascinating.

1. Tulsi Gabbard? That opportunist is hardly on Obama's radar

She made a calculated risk by trying to blow up the DNC with her high profile resignation and snuggling up to Sanders who she thought was going to win.

She was wrong. And she's a blue dog anyway so no, that's not going to happen.

3. DWS should go, yes. Sherrod Brown, Nina Turner, maybe, even though she . . .

was strong for Sanders.

Hey that might be just the thing. She was all in for Bernie and installing her might win over some Sanders supporters.

4. Nina Turner VP would knock the republicans out of the park

and may even turn the south blue. But would she? After all the heart/soul strong talk? I doubt it. And I so hope she wouldn't. Next gen.

So, Hillary has to find a Sanders surrogate that will sell out. edit - good luck, as the whole movement is based on integrity.

This is the problem.

I'd start looking for a new name for the democratic party and let the existing find a new name too.

Could be splinter time - AFTER NOVEMBER !!! Please?
