A timely article out today by Taibbi. A dive into the schism taking place in the Democratic party and it's base represented by the Tulsi Gabbard/Kamala Harris fight.
Similar to the Sanders/Clinton schism without the baggage.
A nice treat to see Matt Taibbi and Katie Halper working together.
I read it in bed this morning, great article and they both make excellent points. The difference is, if Gabbard wins the nomination I will be in the booth pulling the G lever.
You've already made it plain that you will only support whoever fits your exact expectations. Any deviation from those is grounds for your withdrawal.
I cannot afford that luxury. Neither can you but there is no way I will ever convince you of that.
