About Me

A child of the 60\\\'s, a lifelong Democrat and a sense that our elected officials , especially the President, set the tone of civility in our great country. I worked on JFK\\\'s campaign and on Barack Obama\\\'s (twice). High School Class of 1963 I was moved by MLK\\\'s march on Washington, and to see that go full circle and have Mr. Obama for President is quite gratifying. When I see remnants of the John Birch society still quite active in the Tea Party it strengthens my beliefs and support of the Democratic Party.

Nancy Pelosi: Hillary Clinton Would Be More Prepared For White House Than Obama, Bush-Is she Right?


WASHINGTON -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday that if Hillary Clinton ran for president in 2106, she would be more prepared for the White House than all recent presidents -- including Clinton's husband and President Barack Obama.

I am an old white male

and I support everything you said---look Hillary can tick just about anyone off----we could spend hours picking her apart ----but to what end ----to really get this country into the new millennium we need a woman President----ok --we proved that a black man can be President and the country will not fall apart----to the contrary he is a sterling example of a man----often the only adult in the room----and Hillary can bring all of this full circle----I can not think of anyone better than her to put the right wingers in their place------and I can't wait to watch----after her the doors for change will be truly open------no one will be able to sa anything about a woman in the Oval Office----and we all know she is truly capable

I am sometimes curious about the genesis of comments on this blog

“Old wine in old bottles,” says Sen. Mike Lee (R., Utah) to National Review Online, commenting on President Obama’s jobs speech.

And I do believe that you are a Democrat and certainly a good supporter of Elizabeth Warren, but when I hear continued criticism of any of our candidates I wonder if we might have a few Tea Party infiltrators.

I think Elizabeth Warren is a gem on the political horizon. But it is way too early, and extremely risky, to put her on the national stage when she has little name recognition(save for us on this blog) in the key states in which she would need votes. Would it not be a total tragedy to see her marginalized because of a defeat and someone like Rubio or Cruz to get in because she launched too early. There are not too many that have survived to run for President again after an earlier defeat. So I say let's build a machine for Elizabeth Warren, Wendy Davis, and others on Emily's list that can win the country back to the Democratic side with a lot more progressives than we ever thought possible.

With the current Republican House we all as Democrats, should realize that our back porch is on fire. We need to put it out before we start building a new addition. Hillary is not my favorite and never has been (my entire family voted for Obama twice) and my nephew worked on the early Obama campaign in New Jersey.
I simply don't think , this time, that there is anyone out there That can beat her----especially in the general election-------she strikes fear in the hearts of all Republicans. ---

and more than likely they were being coached and groomed by a woman

men don't always like to admit that a woman gave them so much-----but it is obvious-----a good marriage is teamwork---great women--yes!!!!----Eleanor Roosevelt---Rosalyn Carter---Jacquie Kennedy---Barbara Bush--Hillary OMG yes-----the country was falling apart about the Monica thing ---and she says ---Bubba ---put it back in your pants and get Presidential---oh she is so smart--------some foolish people thought she should divorce Bubba--and Hillary says-- ride coach instead of Air Force One NAH!---not HRC---

this is not a flawed assumption ---but rather one supported by the polls

even Nate Silver speaks of it in interviews -----bottom line --Hillary can get more Republican women to vote for her than any other candidate-------Laura Bush said some of the Republican candidates in the last election scared her-------GENDER is the theme of this next election----especially after all of the ultrasound bills , the rape genies, the Rush Limbaugh "slut" comments----defunding of Planned Parenthood, ---believe it or not WOMEN are watching this and the vote will be overwhelming from their response to the "war on women"

thank you juajen

I am a big supporter of Elizabeth Warren----a lot of people on this site unknowingly want to make her damaged goods in the next Presidential election------that would be tragic----let's save her as a continuous weapon in the Senate for now---I would hate to see her leave the Senate with so much undone------she is our rising star and fresh face in politics

Thank you Jim---I am OLD White and screaming liberal at age 67

and have always voted Democratic----I think the one thing about Democratic men is that they seem to be on the right side of history a lot more often than Republicans ----you don't see any of this social diatribe coming from the Democratic Party-----on this blog you don't see the idiotic threats that are so frequent of the Tea party sites ----yeah we have had our whackos ---but the long and short of it is that we are loyal to the team----and we don't have party leaders that preach divisiveness----we are pretty much "big tent" ---we will vote for Hilllary

I am with you on this Beacool and i hope SKP gets on board too---ur invited

But not just EW ----I think Wendy Davis is a heroine-----she took on those good ol boys in Texas and deserves a seat at the National table-------I think there are some great Latinos coming up in Arizona that will just turn the tide (from Red to Blue) in that state

I have not seen any polls ---that show Elizabeth Warren to be a contender ----I am quick to admit that she is a national player though-------but this is a time to galvanize our party----Hillary yielded to Obama for the election and thereafter and it puts her on this stage today-------and I can't wait to see what happens to Rush Limbaugh when she gets in----come on SKP ---we can't let guys like Trent Lott sully Hillary and not give her a day in the sunshine-----

Could you accept a Bush/Cheney administration?

Cheney's daughter is running for the Senate in Wyoming-----she might upset a long time Republican there ----they have no conscience-----so that is Sen Cheney in 2014--------then Jeb Bush runs for president and makes Sen Cheney his running mate----I can understand your dislike for Clinton----but we desperately need to grow the Democratic presence in our elected officials---then ---we foment change

The Why--Hillary in 2016

The team that she will assemble in 2016 is just about unbeatable. First of all, heading it up is her husband Bill who really showed how likable and powerful he was at the 2012 Democratic Convention. There was no headliner at the Republican convention that came close to him. The Clinton's are seasoned politicians and know exactly how to run a campaign. There was a lot of talk about surrogates in the last election, how each of them hit an integral segment of the voting populace and the assembly for 2016 is awesome. Barack and Michele Obama owe the Clinton's a lot. They, and their entire team, will be on hand to support them. They have made great inroads to the Latino vote and most immigrants, not to mention their GOTV efforts in the black community. They alone are an extremely powerful entity that will be backing the Clinton's.

The women vote coming from the entire country will be overwhelmingly for Hillary. In this election Republican women will vote for Hillary more than they have ever voted for a Democratic candidate. First of all, it is an empowering act to make sure that a woman is finally elected President in this country. Second of all the Republican “war on women” is very real to Republican women and the extreme right scares them. Any reader here knows what I am talking about. And Hillary is white, Republican women found it hard to vote for a black man, but Hillary doesn’t have that in her profile.

Her posture as a world figure trumps all of the other candidates that the Republicans can muster. She has made a lot of friends around the world that are long and strong.

Finally, she is smarter than all of them put together. I am such a supporter of her that I don’t want to talk about her ruthless side----she will win this one!

When we look at the horrible mess and message that is coming from the Republican side we need a landslide vote for her, and Congress. With the current Republican House and filibustering Senate we need to get our country back on a good track.
