Donors show unity for Hillary Clinton, and No Hunger for Biden

Politico, which has been at the forefront of peddling a Biden-run, has finally pointed out the truth

EDGARTOWN, Mass. – As Joe Biden considers a possible run for president, the donors he’d need to be viable appear to be ruling him out.
Not all 400 people who gathered at a waterfront estate here on Sunday have been die-hard supporters of Hillary Clinton. In fact, many of them recall a rough summer eight years ago when Martha’s Vineyard’s liberal elite split their loyalties between Clinton and Barack Obama. But on Sunday, they were reveling in party unity and had little appetite for Biden to complicate the field, despite their affection for him.
“I like Joe, but I’m hoping he doesn’t” run, said Kathryn Allen, who campaigned for Obama in the 2008 primary. “I really believe that there is no one more qualified at this point,” than Clinton.
....
Even Democrats who preferred Obama in 2008 said they were giddy about the possibility of electing the first woman president. They were also especially proud of the limited Democratic field in contrast to the chaotic, 17-way Republican brawl.

I am very happy to see this. Maybe the media will stop trying to tear down the Clintons, stop trying to sow division and disunity in the party, and let what's right happen. No election is won without donors. We cannot allow the Kochs to elect our next president.

1. K & R

Unfortunately the corporate media fueled by their masters won't stop all the negatives on HRC.

2. I hope Americans know better than to be swayed by Fox and NYT, who

 

only show dishonour to the Clintons. They did win twice despite an evil media. Luckily, I think MSNBC is a lot more friendly to them than it used to be. I also hope Obama, who the media likes, takes a stand against their hatred of the Clintons. Obama, if he cares about his legacy, ought to join in, and also take a stand against the email witch hunt.

7. I too am excited about electing the first woman president!

Kathryn Allen is correct. There is no one more qualified at this point than Clinton.

9. President Obama and Veep Biden are close friends.. and I do love Joe. I think he's been a great

Vice President.. and I've seen a lot of what he's done.. not through the eyes of the US corpmedia. But, I hope he doesn't run, either.

snip from your link//

Though the event was closed to the public and press, Clinton was careful to take note of the Black Lives Matter movement, which has disrupted the events of her Democratic rivals Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.

The movement has sought to highlight the race-based disadvantages blacks face in American society, and Clinton called it a “really important statement,” adding, “We can’t act like it’s happening somewhere else.”

Thank you, ericson

10. She's really taken a lead on this

 

hence why she'll be a great nominee and prez, esp. if she can keep black turnout close to what Obama was able to do. I hope Colin Powell endorses her too, and she'll be golden.

12. The Clintons are our only hope to defeat Koch Party:

 

these Koch guys are from a pedigree of Birchers, hence why they're tea party. They would squash Sanders like an ant under a boot. We cannot let ourselves get divided over manufactured media garbage, and thus be united. The Clintons have the money, network, and combined with former Obama guys, we can ruin the Kochs' attempt to take the White House and save this country! These asshats wanted to eliminate the minimum wage, social security, you name it. One of the Kochs, ironically for Reagan worshippers, ran on the 1980 Libertarian VP slot! These people are true evil.

19. That would change only in degree. The old DLC took that Koch money too

and DLC is all about the Clintons first and foremost.

Granted now that the seed of their poison has taken root in our party they can use their resources to flog the regressives hard with full confidence that Pete Peterson will keep us in towing distance on about everything outside of essentially recognizing all people as human which is obviously fundamental yet so much so that alone it isn't even an opportunity for survival and for sure very little help beyond living just as rights aren't rights but rather bestowed blessings of special dispensation.

The real white privilege of getting to pretend a world of meritocracy, democracy, and the fruits of hard work by stealing access to opportunity from others that looked different and many never knew a one of on an actual personal level so easy to pretend a few Pharaohs weren't really calling the shots and what the serfs thought was anything much more than marketing input aka the real "American Dream".

Now because it is our time and it is we who hold the threads to weave the fabric of tomorrow to make the dream the stuff of the waking world for ourselves and our children so they in their turn can even see the path to the next step and maybe so they or their children or their children's children can live at all. The current ruling set has long since lost their minds and only all of us can put them in any form of check enough to get the controls unlocked from the heart of the sun.

20. In 2016, today, there is no doubt

 

who the Kochs are for and against. With regard to the DLC 20 years ago, Kochs gave to both parties back then, as Trump has a point about big money. But the Kochs always have given a lot more to the GOP to fuel bad policies, and maybe gave some simply for influence. You can see this on Opensecrets, for election cycles going back decades. Don't try to equate the DLC with Koch the way today's crop of GOP is. It's intellectually dishonest. Its what I'd expect from someone trying to then make this into a race issue, as you have.

Or the minimum wage, or marriage equality.

Wealthy donors for that stuff: Koch Bros. and the GOP.

22. Its obvious he won't; no exploratory committee, no office space, no poll movement,

 

it was the press stirring the pot.
