Will Hillary Clinton's endorsement make a difference?

She has stayed out of it so far. But will her endorsement of a candidate make a difference to undecideds or supporters of other candidates?

Happy 420!

House Dems need to start investigations now

There should be several tracks to them:

1. Financial committees should investigate Trump's taxes and financial ties to Russia.

2. Intelligence committees need to look into the hacking of the 16 election and the Trump campaign's contacts with Russians

3. The Judiciary committee has to Trump's attempts at obstruction of justice

And while the House Dems do this, our candidates need to talk to the people about jobs, healthcare, income inequality, etc.

I firmly believe that if Dems play it smart and expose Trump while campaigning on issues that people most care about, it will lead to total victory in 20.

Bill Maher needs to shut up about Dems going on FAUX

They are a propaganda outfit and Dems shouldn’t legitimize them.

Pete Buttigieg & Beto O'Rourke: I just don't get it

I'm sorry to say that I've seen several interviews with both these candidates and I just don't get their appeal. That is not to say that both would be a vast improvement over the current President. They would.

But I just don't see how they rise above any of the several excellent candidates already running. I've watched interviews with Harris. Warren, Booker, Sanders, Klobuchar and others. They all seem so much more substantive on issues and policy. I'm not seeing this with Buttigieg & O'Rourke. Maybe I've seen some bad interviews for both. But their main argument seems to be 'vote for me because I'm a good guy'.

Thus, it is a mystery to me why they have generated so much excitement. There seems to be a whiff of cult of personality around them rather than genuine support based on their positions on important issues. What I've seen is a lot of style from both but little substance.

President Obama had a lot of style but there was substance behind that. I'm just not seeing that with either Buttigieg or O'Rourke. Again, maybe I have just seen bad interviews with them. If there are better ones, I'd love to see them. But at this point, I think we have far better candidates with much more substance than either of these two. This is not to put them down, both would make a much better President than Trump. And I would gladly vote for either if they were the nominee of the Democratic party.

It's possible to believe several things about the Biden controversy

1 - It is possible to believe the women that they felt their personal space was invaded.
2 - It is also possible to believe that Biden never meant any harm to any of these women. He's just a touchy kind of guy.
3 - Considering 1 & 2 it is also possible to believe that it in no way disqualifies Biden from running for the nomination.

It is possible to believe all these things at the same time. It is called nuance.

Rep. Schiff Blasts GOP Call for Resignation With Exhaustive List of Trump-Russia Ties

Rep. Schiff Blasts GOP Call for Resignation With Exhaustive List of Trump-Russia Ties

by Aidan McLaughlin | Mar 28th, 2019, 9:50 am

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, fired back at Republicans on the committee who signed a letter Thursday calling on him to resign.

Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) led the charge against Schiff, saying in a televised hearing Thursday morning that Republicans “have no faith” in the chairman’s “ability to discharge” his duties, and urged his resignation.

Schiff responded by comparing his colleagues’s criticisms to President Donald Trump’s “attacks.” He then embarked on a lengthy speech listing all of the ties between President Donald Trump, his campaign, and Russian interference in the 2016 election, including the Trump Tower meeting, Paul Manafort’s ties to oligarchs, Roger Stone’s ties to Wikileaks, and Jared Kushner’s attempts to establish a backchannel with Russians.

We need to forget the Mueller report

It was never going to be the silver bullet that some were hoping for.

Instead we need to focus on winning the 2020 election and the issues that people really care about: Healthcare, a living wage, jobs, etc.

The Democrats have a wealth of great candidates most of whom would make a great President. That's what we need to start working on and forget about investigations.
