• No, PP doesn't have to explain anything to you or Lis.  Neither do I.  But we have. Over and over and over again.  You've decided Bernie is your guy and should be everybody's guy.  I've decided Hillary Clinton is my choice, but the last thing I'm going to do is badger anyone who doesn't agree...

    • "endorsements from the greybears may actually be counterproductive.  They feed into Bernie's argument to voters that Hillary is captive to the establishment which is older and much richer than you" - this is sounding more and more like Spartakus Youth League. I've been to Cambodia where wearing...

    • 1) Don't recall any URLs you provided. If a healthy economy masked NAFTA's dire effects, it's also possible that Bush's shitty economy and worse stewardship and refusal to do any job stimulus masked the positive effects of NAFTA - it's hard to imagine the 2001 recovery lasting 3 years under...

    • LisB - PP provided a comprehensive response here.  http://dagblog.com/reader-blogs/managing-expectations-20357

    • This is a good point LisB.  The endorsements from the greybears may actually be counterproductive.  They feed into Bernie's argument to voters that Hillary is captive to the establishment which is older and much richer than you.  This claim is likely to resonate with his supporters who skew...

    • PP - it's very possible as many economists have argued for the negative effects of NAFTA 1) to have been masked for several years by a very healthy economy and 2) to have worsened over time.  You complain that I ignore your graph.  I don't ignore it.  I have pointed to a number of economic...

    • Charles Blow nails it, I think, as usual:

      Tucked among all this Bernie-splaining by some supporters, it appears to me, is a not-so-subtle, not-so-innocuous savior syndrome and paternalistic patronage that I find so grossly offensive that it boggles the mind that such language...
    • Vermont's only nuclear power plant 'Vermont Yankee' has closed, off grid, reactor shut down, and is being dismantled. It was built in 1973. On a river. It leaked heavy water,...

    • Good to know he's pragmatic in how to get things done. Maybe can get Keystone passed finally.

    • That's awful - I present easy evidence in a graph, and you just ignore it and say "we'll just have to disagree". Finished with you - for this and 100 previous - you're not serious.

    • Yeah, I'm still waiting too.

    • Do you really think that the millenials will care wtf the elder statesmen of either party think?

    • The Bundy's are now peacefully occupying a federal facility!

      On federal land!

      Under God and Rush Limbaugh, in America!

      With others like them, united they stand!

      In a place where they can exercise their incarcerate able rights under the Constitution !

    • We'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

    • It would be very tough for him to cause me to think much less of Bernie at this time or to think much better of Clinton.  But I can imagine it.  If Lewis related how he had spoken to Bernie about the importance of the Brady Bill to protect the black community and Bernie had scoffed at him, that...

    • The dot.com bust would have been a 1-year correction, but Bush refused to assist.

      Tell me where all the sucking sound is from Mexico - looks like again its an issue of the horrid Bush years, not a structural Clinton problem. isn't it funny that manufacturing jobs *grew* for 3 years after...

    • Not quite - Hillary has over double the endorsements she had in 2008 - more than anyone except George W Bush in 2000. There was a feeling of racism in 2008, that the pledged superdelegates were denying not just popular vote but a breakthrough candidacy, that influenced superdelegates crossing...

    • It might not hurt if we all try an experiment, right now, which is this:  Forget about the Clintons' past.  Forget about Bernie's past.

      Try to see the candidates as they are today, just as they are today and nothing else.

      Hillary is running alone, as herself.  So forget Bill's...

    • A lot of supposition in that comment.
