• Should Biden decide to run - and I don't think he will - it would turn the primary on its head. I agree with ocean-kat that he wouldn't attract true Bernie supporters, but I don't see that leading to a Sanders nomination. On the contrary, Biden in the race would split the Hillary vote and...

    • It is curious that the DNC has still not announced a schedule for their debates. This morning Debbie Wasserman Schultz said once again that they're still ironing out "details" when pressed by Chuck Todd on if the first would be this month or next. What are they waiting on?

    • Bernie draws a crowd.

    • Here is another one for your enjoyment.  I think this one is really good and note worthy.

    • I notice this article has almost disappeared from the NYT website. Too powerful?

      Even though it was listed #1 in the US section 'most emailed'. Some have noticed it.

      It is at the very bottom of the NYT 'US' section as of Sunday evening August 2. It apparently was on the front...

    • Biden is a good veep and a good senator. He's good in a supporting role.  I just don't see him as presidential timber. Just my opinion. My comment was just one example.  I could write a blog explaining why but who knows if he'll even run or be in contention if he does. Both Hillary and Bernie...

    • Originally, you claimed Sanders supported the wars in Syria and Iraq.  You have, without quite acknowledging it, apparently pulled back on your claim that Sanders supports military intervention in Syria.  You still contend he supports military troops in Iraq.  Your evidence: you saw it on TV...

    • Harry Reid isn't exactly negotiator par excellence, is he?  . Joe the pragmatist knows how to get things done  He's been an effective Veep and an asset for Obama.  ...

    • Well, this is more of the "thousand points of light" stuff handed out in other pamphlets.To wit: The brutality of our system is balanced out by another element.


      I have seen and have benefited from what he is talking about. There is another kind of connection happening.

      To...

    • One of the founders of BlackLivesMattter was on Melissa Harris-Perry's show yesterday. The focus was on police brutality. There may be some who find the message divisive. The groups do reject the hashtag that AllLivesMatter because they feel it reflects a truth, white lives already matter and...

    • Once again, I'm talking about Sanders stance on the current war, not Obama's war mongering in 2013. He wants to cut military spending, but that doesn't change the fact that he supports the war with ISIS.

    • Oh.       Good one, moat!!

       

       

    • Thanks. It is a statistic. Apparently it includes 1 year olds as well as guys with closets full of guns. We are just ahead of Serbia. I don't know if the NRA or Dr. Lewinsky offer their advice or services there.

    • I was riffing on your work-shift haiku and wondering how to survive complete saturation.

    • Okay, I just woke from a short nap, so I may be easily confused at the moment, but I don't understand this one, moat.  Sorry, give me some time and I'm sure I'll figure it out.  LOL 

       

       

    • More guns per person, almost 1 gun per 1 person, than any nation in the world.

      Good blog, but I take issue with this statement. It skews the reality. Much of what I've read claims the...

    • I don't think Biden is at all like LBJ. LBJ was a hard and aggressive negotiator. Biden gets things done by being a push over. According to articles I've read Reid was totally pissed when Obama sent Biden in to negotiate when the Bush tax cuts expired. It fucked up his negotiations and he...

    • They start their campaigns way too early, but since politics is all about money now I suppose they have to.  I'm not getting too excited about any of it yet.  It will peak and then, unless something exciting happens, it'll all go downhill from here.  We make our decisions based on a multitude of...

    • Bernie Sanders on Syrian military intervention on 9/10/13: 

      I believe that the American people share the president’s concerns about chemical weapons in Syria and the brutal Assad dictatorship. But, in overwhelming numbers, Vermonters are telling me they want those issues...

    • Biden is a lot like LBJ when it comes to getting things done.  It would be nice to see him run.  The question is he going to.?  So far he has shown very littles interest in it for good reason.
