I don't think it makes sense for Bernie and Pete to be on a ticket together, unless it's part of a compromise in a brokered convention, but I'm not sure that makes sense.

As of right now, I'm guessing Abrams will be the VP pick.

That woman is an embarrassment. My cousin lives just outside of Atlanta. He told me that a lot of blacks there see her as a sore loser.

I'm going to say this as carefully as possible, and I don't mean it the way it may sound, but I don't think diversity in a ticket is as important as it once was.

We had a large part of the population who continually made up things to be upset with Obama about because of you know what, and there was just as large of a portion of voters who would have never voted for Hillary simply because she was a woman.  2016 was supposed to be this grand election in which a woman finally beat the final boss of sexism to break the glass ceiling, but we all collectively failed to make that happen.  There just wasn't enough excitement for her specifically, and the push for the Orange Fuhrer contained far more radical excitement.

Obama didn't win twice because of the historic nature of his background, he won because he was able to build a brand and get both his base and a lot of undecided people excited.  Both Bernie and Pete have that kind of momentum with their bases, and Pete certainly contains that historic and diverse factor too for his own reasons.

If getting a good candidate in office to oust Tweeto Cheeto is the goal here, I really don't think token gestures should be a motivating factor.  It's just a distraction, and if it's put on a pedestal, it's going to turn off a lot of voters.  It's got to be about issues that people care about and candidates that people want to get behind, which is why I think Bernie / Pete really is the way to go.

LOL early voting for the primary just started in Texas. I plan to vote today after school. I took a look at the democrat ballot. Corey Booker and some others who have dropped out are still on our ballot and there is one strange guy Roque "Rocky" De La Fuente listed for democrat for president. Wikipedia says he's a republican. Roque "Rocky" De La Fuente Guerra is an American businessman and perennial candidate. De La Fuente was the nominee of both the Reform Party and his self-created American Delta Party for President of the United States in the 2016 election. Elections are dumb.

 

There is also a lady running for local sheriff as a democrat who has a ton of indictments against her but she and her husband keep plugging along. Maybe when she's in the county jail and she wins she can run our sheriff's department from a cell.

Watched the debate for the hell of it. Bloomberg and Klobuchar got flustered. Can't believe it took so hour and a half for someone to call Bernie a commie.

I didn't watch it but it was mostly just bash bash bash. I am pretty sure in my mind now we're looking at a Warren Bernie ticket. It won't matter for me who comes out of this because I'm voting Democrat no matter what.

 

I love that Yang is now a media talking head.

Soo....according to Biden on guns:

 

"150 million people have been killed since 2007..."  He was talking about Americans.

 

Okay. 

 

The rest. Its been decades since i've witnessed a Democratic field this weak, many with highly questonable beliefs and/or backgrounds regarding racial issues (specifically black Americans), and pushing doomed-to-fail ideas, even if one managed to get into the White House. 

 

Carry on.
