Wolf Blitzer was yelling about HC's not getting an interview arranged was on TV. That makes it current news. If you see HC's name in the OP title, just skip it.

The OP isn't discussing the emails, it's asking about the aftermath.

I don't know who I want. And we need to do something about it.

I DO want more DU polls, for instance: (none with HC's name, these polls are needed only if the worst happens and she drops out)

A poll for Dem. Governors or past Governors
2. Poll all Democratic Senators or past Senators
3. Poll all House Democrats or past House members
4. Poll all Dems - who are or were in the movie business (Remember Reagan)
5. Poll all other notable celebrities - authors, singers, etc., Dems. of coure
6. Poll all Dems in the TV - hosts, frequent guests, shows, etc.

And allow 3 names for each group, till it gets narrowed down. Glad I'm not arguing with an HC supporter. Some are nice, and it makes me nervous when they are.
