10. Did you mean the corporate and Wall Street benefactors of Clinton?

 


Well, the candidate from Wall Street hasn't won the nomination yet and if you really want to beat Trump you had better wish she doesn't.

You know that some Democratic Party "centrists" have already indicated they can work well with a President Trump. I'm sure there are some " centrist" and "moderate" non-liberal Democratic Party office holders who would rather see Trump elected President than Bernie Sanders.

You don't feel that way, do you?

Sanders has been lost in the media. Of course he polls better.
Its a moot point now.

14. There is no reason for a shill to disguise as a Hillary supporter anymore. She won.

 

If a shill wants to stir the pot, it would only make sense that they would pose as a disgruntled Sanders supporter.

18. And I would have voted for her...clothespin and all.

 

But Bernie's rather undramatic entry into the race, everything about it seemed to be not only with integrity but sheer conviction. Such a difference between what was on my "clothespin", that I immediately listened, watched, looked up, etc. because it was hard to believe that such an un-establishment candidate could enter, when it was clear other Democrats, i.e. Biden and O'Malley, served as sheer window dressing.

And, had he been a "Lifetime Democrat", he would not have been able to buck the Clinton Machine. He's a real innovator...an Independent Liberal caucusing with Democratic Progressives (whatever that means) so he could vote and act his conscience without DNC-type pressure. His allegiance was to Vermont voters. Period. Mostly the Senate Dems/Progressives were glad to have him. And I think the Clinton Campaign "did not mind" because he was such a dark horse...a mere foil ... to her decided coronation.

The change to Democrat...everyone knows why. No need to waste time. He quickly came to represent the part of the Party who had left in disgust, whose clothespins were wearing out, or were not interested...including the young. It was an idea whose time had come, and he stumbled into being the Leader.

Regardless of what happens in the election...HRC will likely win, absent further legal difficulties and health issues. The Republicans likely are Ready for Hillary, too.

What is exciting is to remember that no Revolution was ever won in the first battle. That's the Battle that Defines the Program. After that, the really hard work begins. And that is what I am looking forward to now. Because an HRC Presidency, if it happens, will just be Bill's second term...impeachment...the Republicans are nigh drooling. Especially since they nominated such an ignoramus.

I'm looking toward a future that Bernie defines. I hope to heck he stays with it. I doubt he'll garner much if any establishment support. Candidates are arising based on his principles and those are the ones that are the most important. I will be doing everything I can to ferret out, support and campaign for candidates that pass the Bernie Test. Top down...now down up.

9. There are no 3pt plays in politics. You either get the EV votes or you don't

a .6% margin or a 60% margin are the same thing in the GE

13. So if .6% equals 60% does 10 equal 100? Just need to refresh my math skillls.

 

Teach me basic math.

Thank you.

21. Ermmm.. I guess (ratios are different of course)

but the 100% margin of victory is also just a tad unlikely. Did you have a different understanding of how The EC works? Officially (yes I know its debateable unofficially) GWB won Florida in 2000 by a tiny sliver - just a few hundred votes. Less than 0.01%! He got the EVs just as effectively as he did WY's, with a margin of victory 4000 times greater. A W is a W, simple as that.

25. They wish...not going to happen. The genie is out of the bottle.

 

The Republicans will do the Impeachment thing, but we'll be working with Bernie supporters standing for office at down ticket races. Regardless of another of the memes here, there is A Lot of Difference between the two current candidates.

One of the largest...MONEY...how it's gained, how it's spent, and who is giving it. It's a Class War...The Haves vs. the Have Nots. Can't even call it Left or Right, Conservative or Liberal, least of all Republican or Democrat.

And it's at exactly the right time in history. We are at the "Let them eat cake" mark about now.

28. See the problem here, he is not the nominee he didn't get enough votes or delegates

among Democrats. Another thing he hasn't been hit by the Republicans for decades your poll is pure bullshit.

33. Maybe I should have been more clear. Debbie refers to the DNC Chair

 

Debbie Wasserman Shultz...an ardent Hillary personal friend, scheduler of crap debate times, refuses to work with Bernie because he's not "Democratic Branded", which means they can't control him, via his Independent former status.

Bias? Naw. Just plain old Politics as Usual and Ms. Clinton and Wasserman-Shultz are the best players to date.

Any other questions?

35. I did not yea or nay...nor do I call people right or wrong. Trump won, as well.

 

as well...lecture their folks. Fair and square used to mean something. Stuffing ballot boxes used to be frowned upon. Exit polls used to be fairly consistent, based on candidate and party. I'm old, I'll admit.

And I'm sorry, you don't have the right to demand an answer from me or anyone. That's typical Hubris.

I'm not trying to make you wrong...relax. I don't think the totals are accurate. Hard as it may be for some needing a right or wrong answer...sometimes there is a "wait and see".

It's a long way from nominee to President in this cycle. That's the best you're going to get...sorry.

36. So the only answer you have is they stuffed the ballot box and no

proof that's like the birther people. Bernie Sanders ran a great campaign but he lost so I think it is time he get on board and unify the party. Question is he a Democrat now or was it just out of convenience to run for president.
