So far, I cant really exactly peg where I see either of them on the ideological spectrum.
Just for the sake of argument, lets put Sanders/Warren on the most progressive end as a 10 and put Delaney/Ryan on the least progressive end as a 1.
Where would you put Harris and Mayor Pete?
I think 🤔 maybe they are both around a 7.
But, I want to hear from those that know more about these two than I do.
Someone needs to make a Russian turtle 🐢 mascot uniform for Moscow Mitch.
It could have the 🇷🇺 Russian flag and the words Moscow Mitch on it.
Hire a college student to wear it and an accompanying burly security guard to show up and follow Mitch around.
It would drive him crazy.
Have at it, Dems!
Biden: you know, thats actually pretty good because when I become President, Americans will finally be able to sleep well again.
You never hear anything about that anymore.
Joe calling out Mark Meadows and other Repubs regarding Cummings.
Excluding actual voter count manipulation by Russians or others, Trump cant win a fair election this time. Hes just too toxic to too many people.
He cant win.
But, we can lose it.
The only thing that makes us lose is if our nominee is painted as a bad person or nearly as bad as Trump is and some people in a few key states stay home or go with the Devil they know.
Thats why I am taking a very different view of our primaries this time.
Usually, I want our nominee to take all incoming heat to be totally vetted and battle tested for the general election.
But, not this time. I actually want our candidates to take a little gentler approach. They cant be as battered as Hillary was in 2016 and we have to have a rousing fully throated unified convention in Milwaukee next July.
I want our nominee to be someone that 55-60% of the country will be proud and happy to vote for.
A landslide at the Prez level would humiliate Trump and also mean taking the Senate.
So, yes, bring up a candidates voting record to make contrasts and comparisons on the issues.
But, please candidates, make no personal attacks and be careful with your tone when criticizing a fellow Dem. This election may decide the future of our democracy.
Always keep that uppermost in your minds.

It has obviously now been established who and what Trump is. We know what his re-election would mean to this country and the world.
So instead of continuing to analyze his behavior, why dont we analyze our own.
Id love to ask every politician, media member, and civilian what they are going to do about Trump.
For me, it will mean letting go of a few more dollars, volunteering a few more hours, writing more letters to the editors, etc. I cant wait until we have a nominee who will have my full fledged support no matter who she or he may be. Trumps behavior has made this bed wetting liberal even MORE determined to get him out of office.
What about you?
Rightfully or wrongfully, those 3 cities were blamed for not turning out to vote in 2016 and tipping their states and the electoral college to Trump.
Will it happen again?
Will people stay home or not register ?
Political activists in these cities need to get to work NOW.
Capatilize on Trumps racist statements to fire up people of color and left leaning whites.
Get them registered and pledged to voting in 2020 no matter who our nominee is.
And other purple states need to do the same.
Large turnouts in Charlotte & Raleigh/Durham might flip NCarolina.
Miami/Orlando/Tampa Bay could flip Florida.
In fact All major metropolitan areas across the nation, Trump has called you out by way of his racist rant against Baltimore.
The question now is - what are we going to do about it?
