I'm sick of threats of voters not voting

If this guy or that guy dosent get the nomination thier voters won't show up, ect. Ok. Don't show up. If your so up the ass of a candidate that you won't support another- your in more of a cult than a campaign. If you want to take your chips and go home, so be it. I'll be fine. I have a good job, fantastic health care in a house in Costa Rica. Stay at home but please don't post spend the next 4 years bitching and moaning about injustices, court rulings and some hard knocks life. I almost think campaigns on both sides are already setting up a narrative that they were screwed or robbed if they lose. So, in essence, if your candidate loses you can take some comfort in knowing that they were actually the victors but in America, the election is always rigged if your guy loses. Both parties have factions that have become tribal and to be honest- a bit self righteous and paranoid.

My worry with Bernie is less older Cuban Americans but

more the over 65 demographic nationally. This age group votes in force and are, by far, to be most hostile toward a hint of socialism. Sanders finished 5th in Nevada with the most dependable voter demographic nationally. Young people will come out but how many? I'm around teens all day and they seem a bit oblivious. Are the young adults nationally as political as the ones at the rallies, ect? What say you?

Candadates will have to slow Sanders

momentum in next debate or the race will be over. Problem is that debating policy won't work. They will now be forced to make the argument he is unelectable. They probably cant unless they really get nasty. If they try to debate policy they should depart immediately to thier homes after debate because game over.

Who is Bari Weiss?

Nate Silver posted a tweet where she says Trump will run away with the Jewish vote if Bernie is nominee.

My apologies to Bernie Sanders and his supporters

I've been tough on Bernie and in some cases, lashed out. I'm a life long Democrat and progressive. I've worked campaigns for 25 years. I supported Sanders in 2016 and probably line up with him politically more than anyone. My campaign hat worries he will be a tough sell electorally- not because of his ideas but more so his history. I'm ready to defeat Trump. I think there are better candidates electorally but maybe a movement is better than a candidate. Trump was. Im sorry if I come across as attempting to damage Sanders. I wasn't. I'm just a passionate Democrat that wants to beat Trump. I'm on board with whomever- from Bloomberg to Sanders. Let's be honest- If you are someone who cares, any one is miles better than Trump. We can sort out policy differences later. None of our candidates will have Stephen Miller ad thier advisor. That's a start. Keep fighting. If it's the Bern, I'm in

Wow. Lawrence O'Donnell

"Not one sentence of President Sanders legislation can pass without the votes of every Democratic senator who he's decided to taunt as "the Democratic establishment." Currently 14 senators support Medicare For All. Does he plan to insult the rest into voting for it?"

Trump chimes in. We need a nickname for Trump

"Looks like Crazy Bernie is doing well in the Great State of Nevada. Biden & the rest look weak, & no way Mini Mike can restart his campaign after the worst debate performance in the history of Presidential Debates. Congratulations Bernie, & donít let them take it away from you!"

Sanders running 5th with over 65 voters in NV

and 2nd with voters over 45. Biden winning with demographic that actually votes. Telling

The party isn't a place for moderates anymore

it's lurching toward the very far left. Same thing happened with GOP as it went far right. The party of Clinton and Obama is a shell of itself as we have let a Democratic Socialist take over. We will pay a heavy price in November. I'll be ok. Some won't. After 25 years of working campaigns for DNC I'll be in Costa Rica full time in about 4-5 years. My conversations with actual operatives in the trenches and former campaign manager friends of mine are the same. Sanders can't win nationally. Moderates do and did in 18 and 19. Sanders endorsed candidates were defeated. Sanders only plays well in small areas of country. My guess on a good election night is Trump wins the EC easily, we lose 10-14 House seats and our Senate candidates all refuse to be seen with Sanders. Nightmare sceniro for moderates. You might even see a 3rd party candidate emerge. In fact, bet on it

More Bernie gems for GE

Just consider, to begin with, one issue from Sandersí political career, highlighted by the historian Ronald Radosh When Iranian Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and his minions seized dozens of American hostages in 1979 and held 52 of them for 444 days, Americans across the spectrum were united in outrage and in seeking their safe return. Sanders, at the time, was a backer of an obscure Marxist-Leninist political party that pledged support for the Iranian theocracy and defended the hostage-taking. In line with Iranian propaganda, the party alleged that the captured diplomats and other U.S. Embassy workers were likely CIA agents.

This at the very moment when those Americans were being abused and tortured for precisely that charge.
