'White liberals have the luxury of nominating a socialist

because getting a Republican Attorney general won't impact their lives the way it will minorities."

That was the concensus of my AA inlaws (large get to gathering weekend). They point to how Holder cleared out the Ferguson PD, voter suppression lawsuits against states like Texas, spotlighting unequal disciplining of minority kids in schools and a number of other things that they fear would come to screaching halts if the next Attorney General is a Republican.

While a completely anecdotal story it was pretty good focus group of definite Democratic primary voters and it wouldn't surprise me one bit if that sentiment isn't part of Bernie's inability to make inroads with traditional Democratic constituencies.

Sanders is giving a hell of a speech on CNN right now.

Im still for Clinton. But this is good stuff.

Any of the Democratic candidates could beat any of the pukes.

Their best shot would be Bush or Kashich vs Sanders. Our best shot is HRC vs Trump. But regardless, I see Dem victory.
