Is Pete still taking corporate donations to oppose Universal Healthcare?
As opposed to the Republicans, who elect the candidate that can tell the biggest lies with a straight face!
Electability should be the ability to convince a winning ratio of voters to vote for you. Unfortunately we have to contend with racism, sexism, ageism, etc, AND a party that is willing to tell the baldest of bald faced lies to win. Also there is voter apathy. So electability also means your ability to overcome our worst qualities while inspiring our best.
Ms Harris is out of the race.
I took down my Harris lawn sign yesterday. Only 14 or 15 signs to go.
Kamala Harris: America’s best shot at a “Good Roads President.”
The woman was so white bread and milquetoast in her postions she was probably more electable than Joe Biden.
“Captains of Industry”: No mistaking J.D. Rockefeller’s hatchet face or Andrew Carnegie’s square hairy countenance. J.P. Morgan I had to look up, but I’m pretty sure. Another well-done round of caricatures throughout!
Whatever else you " know" about Bernie Sanders, you must always keep in mind that Sanders IS NOT A DEMOCRAT! (And Trump is not a republican, either!)
And keep in mind, also, that while the December Democratic Debate is now lily, white – the actual Democratic Race IS NOT!
A very accurate portrayal or the field, IMHO.
Is Sen. Booker still in the race? How about Andrew Yang?
The real question is, are any of them electable?
I still expect Warren to be the nominee but she has demonstrated what a healthy dose of facts can do to a candidate. She was riding high until the voters discovered the cost of her promises. Apparently some of her supporters like her ideas only until they learn what they have to give up to get the promise.
Can the Dems field a candidate capable of beating Trump on their own merits? Set aside the fact that Trump is his own worst enemy at times. Assume he doesn’t make any earth shattering blunders between now and then. Which of the Dems on the stage can beat him heads up?
Keep in mind a very alarming (to Dems) set of recent polls. 3 major services place Trump’s approval rating with black voters at about 33%. Literally double the number that voted for him in 2016. Independent support for Impeachment has dropped to about 42%, down from over 50%.
The Dems have a very hard road ahead.
Republican Torries support the madness of King George Trump.
If Kamala Harris be for diversity, then put her on the Supreme Court, preferably to replace Uncle Clarence Thomas.
“An all-white debate stage”.
As if Bernie Sanders wasn’t Jewish.
