Obama Says The Democratic Nominee Will Be Clear Next Week

Huffington Post:

ELKHART, Ind (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Wednesday he expected the winner of the Democratic presidential nominating race would be clear next week after Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders compete in races in California and New Jersey.

“I think that there has been a healthy debate in the Democratic Party, and it’s almost over,” Obama said during a town hall-style event broadcast by PBS.

People will “probably have a pretty good sense next week,” of who the nominee will be, Obama said.




I wonder who it could be.....

37. This is unnecessary bashing. Most Bernie Sanders supporters and/or Progressives don't HATE Obama.

And we are not monolithic. I may not like that he supported Universal Health Insurance instead of Universal, single-payer Health Care, like Bill before him and now Hillary, but I don't hate him. I could give an entire laundry list of reasons why I don't agree with many of his policies and some of the actions he has taken, but it's not important for purposes of this post. But I don't hate him. No politician is worthy of any emotional investment like that from me (Do YOU invest time/emotion in hating a politician?!).

91. That is not true

Many of us love the president and wish we could give him a third term. I conducted a poll on here a while ago that showed that a lot of people in both camps (probably more in the Hillary camp though) would rather have another 4 years of Obama than have their candidate become president. (I'm honestly not sure if I fall in that camp - if Obama could run again I'd be really torn between him and Bernie)

90. No, but I am a little disappointed in him - not for the reason you might think

I am a little disappointed that he is treating next Tuesday as the finish line, because it feels like an F-U to the voters of DC, for him to wait so long to endorse, long after Hillary mathematically had it all but locked down, but then decide DC voters are not important enough to wait for. I know he is itching to get out there and help bring the party back together, but I don't see why he can't wait another week to avoid trivializing a primary held by voters who already get such a raw deal in terms of representation.

In 2008, the DC primary was in mid-February, the same night as Maryland and Virginia.

I thought the 2008 schedule was better in a lot of ways.

95. It was way too front loaded and SuperDuper Tuesday had something like 24 states in it and nearly 1/2

 

the total of pledged delegates. I had no issue with the compressed schedule or even SuperDuper Tuesday ... but if they were going to do that, don't start the voting until like March or April.

to tell why someone was banned. I think it is a convenient way to even the odds here just like letting a disproportionate number of Clinton supporters in MIRT and the Host Forum. I am sure there is a rationalization that Sanders supporters deserve to be kept under control on a site that supports Clinton.

80. You can believe what you like

But people who are blocked from serving on juries need to be honest with themselves about their juror comments and/or voting to leave truly hideable posts. This goes for supporters of both candidates.
Since you believe that there is a site-wide conspiracy against Sanders supporters, I don't know why you'd want to stay here.

Hey there, Hillary Brah.

We female Bernie Bros have been too sensitive about the Hillary Brah's cute name for all of us Bernie supporters. I've realized the error of my ways and vow to never again send a "this is sexist" jury alert on any more Hillary Brahs' posts containing the term Bernie Bros. Yes indeed a sensible jury approved of your Hillary Brah's decidedly (by a 7-0 jury!) charming term of endearment. We female Bernie Bros stand in abject apology before you Hillary Brahs and firmly declare we shall do no wrong again. All hail the Hillary Brahs!

Carry on Brahs!

edit-correct spelling of slang word for bro. "Brah is the slang term for "bro" which is slang for brother..a slang inside a slang. 8) THIS ORIGINATED IN THE STATE OF HAWAII!..." {Not "Bra"! Darn--it fit so perfect for with Clinton's "woman card" campaign, too} I learn something interesting every day still. LOL

the way us female Bernie Bros have been carrying on about you Hillary Brahs' use of that term for us. I am mortified that I ever sent jury alerts on the Brahs' use of what I, also, thought was a sexist term for us females.

In light of these continuing jury decisions (7-0) to not hide those type of Hillary Brah posts, I am reforming my ways! I am apologizing to all the female Hillary Brahs in this thread (you even served on this jury! Now I feel even worse...) who were clearly offended by the thought that us female Bernie Supporters would ever believe your delightful "Bros" term for all of us was anything other than charming.

I see the error of my ways, Hillary Brahs, and affirm the right of all you Brahs to use the term Bernie Bros to refer to all of us Bernie supporters. I lie prostrate in supplication and declare I shall sin no more against Hillary Brahs!

Not at all. If you think a gender-neutral term should be coined for women who call other women c***s, shout down and send death threats to convention delegates and party officials, and are de facto Trump enablers, please offer one. I'll be happy to use it.

My guess is that you prefer not to be associated with those practices.

You can see examples online, on the news, in blogs.

The fact is, Bernie supporters who do these things are overwhelmingly white males. Most Sanders voters are neither party nor sympathetic to the misogynist, homophobic and frequently racist assholes.

Ah! And there we have it! A gender-neutral designation.

83. It was the Bros themselves that coined it,

so perhaps your attention is misdirected. It was only after the media picked up the term in association with their bad behavior that the Bros decided that they themselves were mythical and the term sexist.

The faux outrage is rather amusing, though. Do proceed.

I have learned the ways of faux from the master Hillary Brahs!



edit-correct spelling of slang word for bro. "Brah is the slang term for "bro" which is slang for brother..a slang inside a slang 8) THIS ORIGINATED IN THE STATE OF HAWAII!..." {Not Bra! Darn--it fit so perfect for with Clinton's "woman card" campaign, too} I learn something interesting every day still. LOL

hillary supporters will not win us over with statements such as these and the other rovian and brockian memes meant to malign progressives. note: even after hillary has pretty much declared herself the "nominee", the ugliness from her supporters toward bernie sanders continues.

That's true.

But they wrote the headline "will be clear next week".

Maybe, but that's less true, because we have shades of meaning here. There are a lot of things that could happen between now and the convention.

42. Yep. March 15th. Arguably March 1st.

But Obama stayed out of it, as that's what presidents do. Soon, though, he'll make it clear that he fully supports the presumed nominee. Talk will turn to who Clinton will choose as a running mate.

I've been here forever and don't pick up

99. Really? I recall Obama facing the exact same rules that Bernie is now.

I remember closed primaries and superdelegates and everything else Bernie supporters complain about being around in 2008. I remember Hillary having a huge superdelegate lead from the very start, and I remember them always being included in media outlets' delegate count, and usually without any specific notation about the difference between pledged delegates and supers.

What obstacle did Bernie Sanders face in 2016 that Barack Obama did not face in 2008? Because I'm not seeing it.
