    MSNBC: It's Sad How Clinton Is Dealing With This Election

    This was from December 19-never saw it here and it’s very telling in its substance not just in covering Clinton’s reaction to her loss specifically but the larger context of problems within the Democratic Party and their lack of introspection.

    1. It is interesting

    to see the pundits who worked so hard to help her reflect on this.  I am not really surprised Hillary still clings to Comey’s guilt, somehow I think he sleeps better at night now… even if Hillary hates his guts.

    3. Who is going to be the new DNC Chair? This really really matters.

    The “much needed introspection” that is going to be so very vital to save the Democrats from themselves in coming months and years is only going to happen if the new DNC chair is someone who is somewhat removed from the corrupt Clinton/Wasserman/Brazile crowd.  There are a YUUGE number of newly awakened Democrats — thanks to Bernie’s campaign — who can and will salvage this disaster, but that’s only going to happen if the head of the DNC fish is not already rotten.

    “The Voting Process

    On February 12, 2005, the members of the Democratic National Committee will elect a new Chairman by majority vote.  If upon the first three ballots, there is no majority, the candidate with the fewest number of votes will be dropped from the ballot, and a new vote held.  This will be repeated until there is a majority choice for Chair.

    Who are the DNC Members?

    There are 441 votes in the Democratic National Committee, split among 446 members.  The goal of the membership makeup of the DNC is to have a representative sample of the members of the Democratic Party from the grassroots, local, state, and Federal level, as well as its various constituents such as labor, women, and minority groups.  There are 200 state party members elected by state committees, conventions, and straight votes, depending on the state.  Every state party chair has a vote, as well as the highest ranking member of the state party who is of the opposite sex as the state party chair.  There are also 75 at large members chosen by appointment, as well as reprentatives from party organs like the House and Senate Conferences, Mayors, AGs, etc.  According to the Charter, there is mandated gender balance within the Democratic National Committee, and among representatives from states and party organs.”

    The above info was lifted from a Kos article at the link below.  The article provides additional details of exactly who will be entitled to vote in the election of the new DNC Chairperson, and how the voting process works.  I’m personally hopeful that person will be Keith Ellison.   I hope we at JPR can begin to give this Feb. 12th election the attention it deserves, in support of the progressive New Deal Dem wing of the Democratic Party.

    11. Not sure what direction they are going to take from here.

    But, they had better be ready for some backlash if they lay down to Trump and let him have everything he wants.

    12. I've said it before, and it still holds true

    Hillary Clinton could not be more full of herself if she used her own arse as a sleeping bag.

    If you surround yourself with people who worship or are paid enough to worship you; you begin to believe them.
