Deval Patrick is impressive

A very impressive guy with a very impressive life story. He came up the hard way. I'm willing to give him a look. No one has the right to my vote simply because they are already in the race. This move, as has been sourced numerous times over the last 24 hours, has the Obama circles fingerprints all over it. He would not have entered without the blessing of Obama, himself- a best friend. It will be difficult given the late entry but not impossible. I support Biden but Deval could easilybe my 2nd choice. Let's cast our votes and get behind whoever the nominee is.

Educate me please

How long are hearings expected to last before a vote? Any guesstimate?

RBG

Any info on RBG. Apparently she has taken ill and off bench today.

Deval is welcome

I find it so frustrating that some folks on here get irate when another accomplished Democrat talks about a late entry into the race. There is time and contrary to popular opinion- you don't have to be a Washington insider to be qualified. There are many of us that would love to see some youth and someone from outside DC. I support Biden but we have talent outside the 6-10 on the stage at the moment. Worse yet, some immediately take the knives out on these men and tear them down. These individuals are on our side. What the hell are you doing? Don't support them but welcome them and wish them luck. I can tell you right now there is worry on the ground that this race is going to be tougher than it should given our top candidates at moment. So chill out and see Deval has to say. He's one of us.

Holder and Bloomberg

Relax. If these two men decide to jump in- so be it. Any one has a right to run If they so choose. These two men are our allies that have spent the last few years working tirelessly for progressive causes. I welcome them both. Bill Clinton was a very late entry, as well. I could make the argument that we have 4-6 that should stop out but this is a primary and everyone deserves to jump in or drop out as they feel included. Just remember, there is no reason to disparage thier desire to beat Trump and they are only assets to our party..

An early VP selection for candidates

Could we see a candidate pick a VP running mate before the primary is over? The arguments at this point with people I know is this. Biden won't excite the base to turnout and Warren and Sanders are not electable in the GE. Both probably have some validity. Do you think a solid VP pick would help Biden with the base or maybe Warren appear more electable in the GE? An example would be Biden picking Abrams or Warren maybe choosing Castro ( just examples folks). If we don't motivate and get huge GOTV with African Americans or Latinos- we don't stand a chance. So, would an early pick be beneficial to these candidates to shore up thier GE weaknesses and focus on the Trump billion dollar campaign machine * FYI.. Abrams said yesterday, in front of 700 Iowa voters, that she would happily run on a ticket if asked.

Steve Schale - Florida guru

If your a political junkie and curious about Florida politics, follow Steve Schale. He is engaged on Twitter and has a blog where he breaks down Florida races like nobody else. He's a numbers guy much like Jon Ralston in Nevada. Steve was Obama's Florida point man in 08 and 12. Steve is big on Joe Biden in Florida and says Trump internals show him trailing significantly there versus Biden. Whoever you are rooting for, he's got all the Florida data and will update throughout the next 12 months....Whoever our nominee is, I hope they work Florida hard. We take Florida, game over early.

VA elections

If there is a blue wave on Tuesday in VA, the GOP will have to be panicked. I look forward to hopefully good results

2020 map

When I look at the 2020 map, it still looks challenging. I think any of our candidates will win the popular vote. That is a given. If the Democrats win back PA and MI it still leaves us short. I think Florida, Wisconsin, Arizona are at play. Ohio maybe but I still think NC and GA are longshots realistically. So- who is better positioned to compete in AZ, FL WI and maybe OH? My money is Biden due to his ability to peel of some working class, white males. I think Florida is very winnable with a diverse ticket. Just a simple observation. The map is ugly my friends. South Florida can make it an early night for our team if we GOTV. 2016 was a low turnout.

Need help

Can someone give me a brief idea of what happens next with impeachment? What has to happen to send it to Senate?
