With Antonin Scalia's death, God rest his soul, this is no longer fun and games.

This nomination race just turned extremely serious. the Republicans in the Senate will never let President Obama name Scalia's successor. The two oldest Justices still on the Court are progressives. Both have had health issues in the past and no one knows how long they will last. A Democrat must win the general election. The direction of the Supreme Court for the next twenty years hangs in the balance.

We can no longer count on improbable dreams coming true. We can no longer wish for on a socialist Revolution. We must win the Presidential election.

Don't miss the debate tonight!

CNN is reporting that Hillary will be changing her tactics with with regard to Bernie Sanders and that she will be "sharpening the contrasts" between the two candidates. I translate that into the fact that she is going to finally go negative on Sanders.

Among other things Hillary is reportedly going criticize Sanders for all of the negative comments he has made against President Obama. (In my view it is about time she comes out swinging on this issue. I am tired of it myself and the black populations in the upcoming primaries need to know Sanders has been overly critical of the first black President.) Surely she is going to point out that almost all of the black leaders are backing her.

It has long been said that Hillary is at her best when she assumes the position of the underdog and despite the fact that the upcoming primaries look good for her, I'm sure that Sanders taking "victory laps" after New Hampshire has put her in a feisty mood.

Go get em Hillary!!! Bernie thinks the "kitchen sink" is coming his way - he hasn't a clue what a fired up Hillary can bring.

Bernie campaign sent a new spokesperson to be interviewed on CNN this morning

I was still a bit sleepy so I didn't get her name, but she is a black woman. I watch CNN a lot and I am pretty sure this was her first appearance for the Sanders campaign. Before now it was always a white guy speaking for the for Bernie's organization. With a crucial primary coming up in SC, I found the sudden change of the campaign spokesperson a little.....well, obvious and may even a little condescending, but certainly interesting.

Congressional Black Caucus endores Hillary

(I hope this is not a duplicate post)

I just saw an interview on CNN with Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York who announced, or at least reinforced the endorsement of Hillary Clinton by the Congressional Black Caucus. He gave one of the most eloquent narratives in support and in defense of Hillary's continually work on behalf of the black community throughout her lifetime. They need to put him on a commercial.

When he was challenged with the statement that Bill Clinton was President when the legislation which resulted in many young black men going to jail, Hakeem countered with a devastating rebuttal saying that Bernie Sanders voted for that legislation in the House. (I didn't know that.)

This is perfect while Sanders is turning over every stone trying to find some black leaders to endorse him going into South Carolina and the other Southern primaries.

Enough is enough! This alerting and hiding game has gone for far too long!

I was just finished reading a post by stevenleser in which he provided a link to an article. I typed out a brief message in reply, but when I tried to post my reply I got a message - "you can not reply to this post because it has been hidden by jury decision' or something along those lines. I can attest that there was nothing harmful to anyone on this board or to DU - the article simply criticized Bernie Sanders - who I consider fair game. (The jury decision was 6-1.) Heck, there have been lies and mud raking articles about Hillary published on GD-P and someone can't publish an article suggesting that Sanders has been disingenuous here in the Hillary Group? That ridiculous! And we shouldn't take this laying down!

Right now someone is currently exchanging PM's with his/her buddies giggling about how they hid another Clinton supporter in his own group.

Something needs to be done! Now!
We have petitioned individually only to be told that fixes are coming, but we must wait until after the primaries. Well heck, the need for the fixes will not be needed then for at least another four years, maybe eight if Hillary wins the nomination. We need a fix to this abomination NOW!

There is strength in numbers - some of you folks have been around DU a lot longer than I have - what can we do together?
