I get the politics of it and why he ended his presidential campaign

but I'm so disappointed. Pete was the only candidate I was inspired to vote for. None of the others do that for me. Unless something happens I will lay back see who gets the nomination and vote. I think we missed a moment here and I hope something does happen to get me enthused again. Blue no matter who. Good nite.

As an old fart I find it sad

with all the discussion about the health of our elder candidates why is it also said that Buttigieg is too young. What is the correct age ?

Went into a newly remodeled Burger King the other day

and playing on the big flag screen was Newsmax tv. Is this a BK policy of just a franchise choice ?

The GOP Senate has escaped any and all responsibility for allowing

Trump to remain in power. Since trump is committing impeachable offenses it seems weekly like judge and jury tampering in the Stone case to more quid pro quo in the Julian Assange pardon/prosecute. I suggest the same Democratic members who worked on the impeachment assemble and present to the GOP senators and the MEDIA 1 or 2 offenses a week and ask them if they would vote to remove now ? Then rinse and repeat every week. It's important to get as many on the record what it would take to remove the criminal. The Democratic Party has to keep hammering away at the damage the republicans are doing. Instead of bashing our own candidates keep the pressure on trump and the complete lawlessness that is happening. If voters keep seeing the shit he is doing then possibly we won't have to worry about who can beat trump. They all could.

Trump is running for re-election also,

why aren't the liberal press asking him about his healthcare plan, about his deficit solutions, his plan for the homeless, his forgien policy plans, his plan for income inequality solution and on and on. The fair media will surely press him and his administration for details and fact check the positions they put forth. Saying "we'll see what happens" and "we're doing a lot of things" or "a lot of people are saying our plan is the best and biggest" should not be accepted. People need to hear both sides positions and plans if they have one. Show him for the fraud he is and we could have a chance.

I don't get all the negative posts about Bernie.

This is the Democratic primaries and like it or not this is the way it's done. Isn't letting voters decide what we have been asking for ? I certainly would like my chosen candidate to win but unless someone shows me something is amiss here then we have to let it play out. It's still early and whomever becomes the nominee will have to work within the party to put forth their agenda. If we continue to work to get out the vote then we will beat Trump. If we continue to look defeated and disappointed with our candidates how do we expect voters to be enthused.

Alright, enough is enough.

After the total and complete fascist behavior JUST THIS WEEK by the trump administration the Democratic leadership members of the Democratic Party have to demand the Republican Senate defend their decision not to remove the criminal president from office. Go to the press with the list of things Ms. Maddow just read on her show and demand they ask each and every one how they defend their vote. Run ads naming senators showing this fall to fascism and their excuse for their vote. This has got to stop. The press is not save for a select few interested at all. The Republican Senate is all that is standing in the way of removing this cancer and that has to be made clear every time a member of the Democratic Party has the chance. I know I'm rambling but he can be impeached again and you Republican senators if there are any who are not compromised can have another chance to save your country if you dare.

I wonder if along with declaring our preferred candidates

can we also include a Blue no matter who box to check ?

Sadly it seems it someone was to come to DU for the 1st time

they would think from reading the posts there are no Democratic candidates worth voting for. Let's talk about the qualities of your preferred candidate not the faults of the others. Leave that to republicans and the "fair" media. Vote blue no matter who.
