I can only even remain sane if I convince myself that Joe Biden will not be the candidate. I wouldn't join the Democratic Party to vote for Bernie in 2016 but I may join to vote against Biden. Florida primaries are closed.

I'm pretty sure you could count on Biden to screw that up. He's running against the leftist wave and will choose someone as obscure and useless as himself.


We're supposed to be the smart ones who know that having a #2 who is somewhat different than yourself is the key to avoiding winding up knee deep in "Eau de Numéro Deux".

If Obama was so smart why'd he choose this dolt as his VP?

Biden was a little bit more Blue Dog than he was, not to mention "white".

I didn't mean to sound like we think we're Einsteins, but at least a little bit smarter than they are.

The toll was greatest on the poor and the middle class, who still haven’t recovered their losses, even though Wall Street has fully recovered (and then some). Nor have reforms been enacted that will help the middle class and the poor the next time Wall Street implodes."

From Occupy

Not one of these white collar criminals were charged. That was an Obama administration decision.

Well allright.

I didn't want to be to predictable but it looks like no one else is going to post it up but wadda bout them numbers on the big board?

"Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has a huge lead over other Democratic presidential candidates in the number of individual donors they have each accumulated so far. This is the first time since the primary race began in earnest that we can estimate how many individual donors each candidate has attracted — a key indicator of how much they are catching on with voters.

Mr. Sanders is relying heavily on small donors to power his campaign, and he entered the 2020 race with a huge network of online donors who supported his 2016 presidential bid. The map above shows the breadth of Mr. Sanders’s roster of donors across the United States. "

NYT 2020 Campaign Contribution Map

Does the game board say anything about electability and experience like we heard so much of in 2016? Would this qualify? No?, still the primary?

We'll see. At least the two that skew the closest are taking the top slots.

I will be very happy if Bernie is the candidate.
I'm one of those donors.

The problem was, and remains, that what they did was not "criminal" - though it should have been.

There's something wrong with the map. Warren is second in number of contributors but doesn't appear on the map? Methinks that there is a skew afoot.
