I think there have been enough debates.

At this point, if people are still undecided, I don't think another debate is going to make a difference.

Clinton is already looking ahead to the GE campaign against Trump...

As Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump aim to clinch their parties’ nominations, the former secretary of state is poised to start the general-election campaign with a far more sophisticated operation in key swing states than businessman.

If super-delegates from Washington should support Sanders, should Warren (MA) support Clinton?

Just trying to understand the argument here.

thanks!

Long ago, lots of state politicians made a lot of promises on pensions/health care to govt workers

without funding them adequately. Figured the future will take care of itself and by the time that happens, it's somebody else's mess to clean up and I'll be long gone.

What do you think of such an approach?

Personally I think such an approach is cynical and irresponsible and the politicians are just pandering to the voters by pretending they can give benefits without asking for cuts elsewhere or new taxes.

Now, is this something that Bernie is doing? Why is he so generous about his platform and pretending that somebody else will pay for it? His pot of gold is of course the high frequency tax which is supposed to bring in $300b a year and won't hurt anyone who doesn't deserve it (which means 99%) and only hurts the 1%, which is kinda impossible if you think about it.

Should Clinton pivot to the middle for the GE? She's never going to attract the BernieOrBust'ers.

Instead of wasting her time and energy reaching out to the BernieOrBust supporters, maybe she should write them off and go after the moderates? Those who are grounded in reality and maths, and understand that getting somebody to pay for your free college and health care is NEVER EVER going to happen?

Does she have a path to victory under this scenario?

I predict that Clinton won't need California to clinch the nomination

Once she goes into the Acela corridor she will pick up enough delegates to reach the magic number.

You can't have economic justice without redistribution. Free trade has helped hundreds of millions

of people around the world.

It has provided jobs where previously the best jobs were in rural subsistence farming.

To say nothing of the benefits of providing internet and cell phone services to undeveloped countries.
