    Dem senator: ‘Why are people still talking about Hillary vs Bernie?’

    Dem senator: ‘Why are people still talking about Hillary vs Bernie?’
    Mark Hensch
    The Hill

    Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) on Wednesday questioned why the Democratic party is still litigating the 2016 presidential primary between Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

    Sanders said Tuesday that he does not consider himself a Democrat, even as he joins Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez in a national unity tour.“No, I’m an Independent,” he said when asked by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews whether he now identifies as a Democrat.

    More recently, Sanders has drawn fire from Democrats for saying he isn’t sure that high-profile Democratic Georgia special election candidate Jon Ossoff is as a “progressive.” But Sanders remains popular, ranking as the most popular active politician in a recent poll.

    1. Because the 'democratic' party has refused……

    to accept their share of the blame for creating the current administration,  and they have given every sign that they will continue on this path of destruction.

    2. Brazen crime keeps people talking

    Tune in next month for CSI – DNC.

    Policy:  The mistaken notion that bossy people have that they can influence other people's behavior through majority rule.

    3. The Bankster Hag that refuses to go away.

    I remember a line from a popular War movie. The Captain sends a messenger across no mans’ land who promptly gets cut down by a German Machine Gun. A private asks the Captain as to why the Germans keep shooting the obviously dead messenger. The reply was: ” As long as he has a breath in his lungs, he carries the message.”

    As long as Bernie carries the message, they keep shooting.

    5. When you lose to Donald Trump, you'd better talk about your poor choice.

    The Democrats need to face the facts. Their neo-liberal, corporate sock puppet shtick isn’t selling anymore. They picked the worst possible candidate to run against Trump and ignored every one of the major warning signs denoting that fact. They were lemmings following Her Majesty over the cliff, blinded by their hubris.

    Sanders would have handily beaten Trump, with Obama-like numbers.

    DemExit! Don't give the Democrats a dime. Don't identify as a Democrat. Drop Democratic identification below 20%. Only then will they support true progressive policy. Until then, corporate money rules.

      12. Bernie would have made Louisiana a swing state.

      Bernie would have flipped West-Virginia.

       

      Bernie would have outdone Obama by a mile.

       

      Which is probably why the DNC didn’t want the first Jewish president to follow the first African-American one.

      "Someone hacks the DNC allowing all of America to see how the DNC operates as one of the most corrupt political machines in national history. Ergo, Hillary Clinton should be installed as President by judicial fiat.

    6. this guy is an idiot

    and demonstraites the problem with the corporate dems

    …and you think you’re going to stop this simply by ‘pulling a lever’, in a booth, behind a curtain, every 2 years? - Know yourself. And if you need help with that, call the FBI. -  There is only ONE solution to this mess:  New Party !

      10. He wasn't when he was my state legislator.

      Then again, around that time, there was a DINO from Ewa Beach on O’ahu whose reserve unit got called up to Iraq. Her name, of course, was Tulsi Gabbard. Go figure.

    7. The goal of the old DLC and Third Way is to transform the traditional FDR

    Democratic Party into the supply side/neo liberal party of Reagan. It isn’t necessary to win elections to accomplish this. The main thing is to keep the influence of actual liberals to a minimum.

There would be no place to hide."  Frank Church "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." - Frederic Bastiat, 1848

    8. Another clueless dem

    Because it’s why Hillary lost and why the Dems will keep on losing.

    9. I don't know, Brian. Why don't you ask your own constituents?

    Who voted overwhelmingly for Bernie.

    11. Because *she* represents the worst in the Democratic Party

    and because Bernie represents the best the Democratic Party SHOULD include.

    13. He should ask Tulsi

    I imagine that she would be able to explain it to him. He could attend one of her events and ask.
