About Me

Lifetime Democrat and I have voted in every election for 40 years.

Progressives Don't Run the Democratic Party

In a recent poll 55% of Democrats listed themselves as either conservative or centrist Democrats, while 43% listed themselves as liberal/progressive Democrats.

I believe a centrist Democrat, like Hillary, has an advantage because she will work within the system. Bernie and progressives want to blow it up and start over. Just check out posts by Bernie supporters. When they are not attacking Republicans they are attacking Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

This primary polling reflects the above numbers. Among Democrats she is crushing Bernie among center and center right Democrats. In fact the only demographic among Democrats Bernie wins is the young and more liberal Democrats.

The big guy agrees with me.

“I think one of the best decisions I ever made as president was to ask Hillary Clinton to serve as our nation’s secretary of state,” the president said.

Magic Johnson Endorses Hillary

Turns out all the Bernie in 2016 and Obama in 2008 comparisons are bogus.

Every day I read another Bernie fan talk of how badly Obama was doing in polling against Clinton in 2008. Then I read a post on Daily Kos and it showed something that Bernie and his fans don't want to talk about.


At the same point in the 2008 campaign here is where the numbers stood. From the DK front page post.

Barack Obama’s deficits ranged from -10 to -30 in that outlier-looking ABC poll. The average among this lot was Clinton 44, Obama 25, or a 19-point deficit.

Despite his national deficits, Obama was already making his move in Iowa, in a race he would end up winning by eight points over both John Edwards and Clinton (who ended up just behind Edwards in third).

Oops. The Bernie folks don't want to mention Edwards.

Obama had made his move in Iowa and it took away people feeling Hillary was inevitable. It also made black voters realize Obama could win. Then Edwards went away and it was over.

None of those things are relevant to this election. Sanders already has the "anybody but Clinton" crowd. Instead of Edwards polling between 10-15 points, there is MOM at 2 points. Black voters are showing no signs of moving to Bernie and most importantly Bernie Sanders is not Barack Obama.

Leading to the following conclusion

Stupid F***ing Media

The won't ask Trump why he is a bigoted piece of shit but they will ask Hillary about Paula Jones.

Then again her answer was priceless.



I worry about us Clinton supporters.

I have been reading the pro "he who will not be named" topics I am starting to think we must be delusional?

How else do you explain our believing Hillary can win the nomination with a near 40 point lead among Democrats?
