1. Paper ballots in a closed primary, who'd a thunk?

There was only 1 recent poll (May 6/9 - after the news of the registration boost) by Fox that had Clinton up by 15, but according to Maddow last night, they put poll through 2 matrixes, and still came up with the same results. Makes you scratch your head.

4. Ii can no longer listen to Maddow. She used to a favorite.

 

MSNBC used to be my port in the media storm. No longer. I just hate it that basketball is almost over. Nothing worth watching.

14. huh?

Because they canned Schultz? He was a top rated show at the time. Just like Olberman and Donahue were when they got canned.

18. No, I meant why Maddow and Matthews are still there. They converted.

 

Firing Donahue was a MSM crime. Forgot about him

Olberman. Got under everyone's skin from time to time. Made you think. A real journalist.

Ed Schultz...Mr. Nice Guy Union Supporter.

They lost their political edge...to keep the financial edge.

Oh well.

7. uh huh - and that means - California - maybe Clinton will approach with some modesty?

And agree, the pollsters are not helping anyone learn about issues or policies. Trump land race for the survivor!

11. Congratulations. Sincerely, I'm glad Bernie supporters can see a good result of their movement.

 

I know that in 2008, those late wins really helped to ease the pain people felt about Hillary's overall loss. Knowing that many people were touched made a big difference in being able to ultimately let go.

22. yes, it helped keep their dreams alive. I don't think acceptance this time around is going to be the

same. It will be moving on, and not forgotten - as happened in 2008 - but I don't think the next electoral candidate for the Sanders movement will be trying to hang onto Clinton's coat tails, like Clinton is hanging onto Obama's. No disrespect for Obama intended. Just that the path forward looks considerably different in a structural way - not necessarily in basic tenants. However, that could be incredibly different and exciting if Clinton listens and acts on the inevitable progressive trend of the Democratic party. I'm very excited for 2018 and 2020.
