We have now 3 candidates contesting the legality of this election

Trump just opened the door to a redo/audit. Here's Jennifer Granholm agreeing with me

To best understand the GOP-Trump situation/history

this is an entertaining visual aid

Is there some veiled threat in bringing up this story?

Because, nobody looking good in it. But I guess you guys are past the need to look good.
Anyway, I bookmarked and my thanks to the many great contributors - a great history lesson for me. Comparing times, this reinforces to me the feeling that the D party was never more united, in better shape as this election year. The way the entryism attempt was repelled solidified this for me. UK Labour missed the diversity of our D party, that's why it was hollowed out/betrayed by Corbyn with disastrous results for the country.
hew concept for me too - so here it is
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entryism

Charisma is a subjective thing, To you, media she is not, To her voters

at least the ones who really know her, she is. Bill Clinton talked about the 1%ers in his '92 campaign. They both talked about the need for the younger generation to do better than their parents for decades. And DID STUFF to make it so. I did personally experience Peace and Prosperity - not just a slogan. The world did exist before Bernie, and will continue to do so after him. Many of the Clinton voters in NYC were in Zuccotti Park (I do personally know quite a few). Now we took it to a higher level. The ones who are still trying to sleep there are the ones who never voted. Pretty much a metaphor for the primaries.

My vagina just demanded to vote again after reading this

So, I am not angry about the refusal to accept this historical moment or constant bullying of Hillary supporters - on line.in person, by phone. I feel so relieved to be mansplained! I am not angry about stuff like that http://www.truthdig.com/eartotheground/item/worlds_largest_fart-in_planned_for_hillary_clintons_acceptance_speech_in_ph (good luck with it - it will be outdoors)

OWS wanted to recruit Warren. Sanders was Plan B

I was part of it when it was legit, I watched it disintegrate at the end - I am watching the same process again. Of course the economic injustice is a crucial issue that traditionally Ds address - and remedy. Peace and prosperity. Taking us out of crisis. And please don't blow up banks - my savings are in there!

Hillary's campaign statement re: AP announcement

Here;s a piece of information to cheer you up:

Sanders campaign is leaving New York tonight. Clinton reserved time square for a primary party. Writing is on the wall for NY. (I am going to Times Square tonight!)

Krugman explains the reason for the pre-mortem article - more smearing

http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2016/04/04/shadows-of-smears-past/?smid=tw-nytimeskrugman&smtyp=cur&_r=0
So now, in a last desperate attempt to beat the arithmetic, the Sanders campaign is turning the implicit character attack explicit, and doing so on the weakest possible ground. Clinton, who has said that coal is on its way out, is a tool of the fossil-fuel industry because some people who work in that industry gave her money? Wow.

also
Sanders himself got to play the issue-oriented purist, in effect taking a free ride on other peoples’ character defamation. There was plenty of nastiness from Sanders supporters, but the candidate himself seemed to stay above the fray.


The so called pre-mortem which is really more spin is here

I like this on the speeches
But Mr. Sanders, hunched over a U-shaped conference table, rejected it as a personal attack on Mrs. Clinton’s income — the sort of character assault he has long opposed. She has the right to make money, he offered.

It's the equivalent of this

Adjusting the goals for NY

Remember how they were telling us they'll win it, and turn it around? Primary 2.0? According to this story http://www.politico.com/story/2016/03/bernie-and-hillary-prep-for-new-york-clash-221321 thet are now striving for a "credibility threshhold"
Sanders’ allies said the goal for the primary is to eat into Clinton’s delegate take by winning at least 40 percent of the vote -- a percentage they cite as a “credibility threshold.”

I guess those very expensive pollsters finally came in with their reports
