4. Not sure I'm center left...

 

But I think our candidate has to be.

Sure Iíd love dream healthcare and free for all school and hot lunch for every kid. So does Joe probably. But getting there is so incremental. Itís like knowing an algorithm for getting there. Sometimes itís lengthy.

We nominated a centrist candidate that people didn't like. She lost. If we are going to ignore why people didn't like her, then we will likely lose again.

You know all the "Dems just needed to get out and vote in those swing states" arguments? There are reasons they didn't. We need to figure them out. I am positing that the lack of enthusiasm for a centrist was part of it.

24. If your argument is that we were cheated and hacked,

 

what is your candidate doing to avoid this? Because it's likely going to happen again.

26. I'm no advisor. I don't pretend to know everything about Biden

 

What I know is Biden is the most qualified both nationally and globally. Heís well liked everywhere. Iím not blind to what I think are smeary half truths about Biden

Booker Harris Warren Sanders were all on the Franken Railroad. Although many of the other Senators have since expressed disappoint in their rash act of no due process, the above have failed to do so in even the remotest way. Actually they have doubled down on it. So for me that is more damning than Bidenís hugs, or something he should have made his grown son do or Not do, or something else that Republicans are trying to make important.

Is your argument that we didnít win the vote and we werenít hacked or cheated?

Also Joe Biden is not an office holder at this time so what is he have supposed to do about it?

Obviously you donít like Biden. So I feel no further need for us to discuss this further.
Besides I have to go out

12. Centrist supports centrist. Shocking.

 

Based on the response when progressives endorse Sanders or Warren, I guess that is the response we are supposed to have.

But, hey, good for Joe. I don't think he will win the nomination, but best of luck.

19. I don't think Warren can possibly win the Midwest

 

But hey good for Warren.

Opinions everyone has one. Takes a special person to go on a pro other candidate post to buzz kill for another candidate.

21. Have you not read this forum?

 

Because it's not all positive posts. But, sure, we'll pretend the "buzz kill for another candidate" responses are limited.

Clinton didn't win the Midwest, so...

Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, and other large midwestern states can and do go Dem. Others never will. Ohio is likely lost completely.

16. Strange saga with her Senate seat.

 

But the long and short of it is...if she didnít flame out in 1998, there never would have been an opening for a little known state senator named Barack Obama in 2004.
