      Well. This is interesting. Surfing the web for info on potential candidates and ran across this chart.

      It’s interactive so you can play around with it and prognosticate to yer hearts’ content. Not sure how I feel about this but it occured to me that we could fill ’em out, post them and see if the interweb hamsters pick it up! Have some fun with it!   :mail:

      Seems like the brackets are designed to eliminate the better candidates (i.e. Elizabeth Warren vs Jeff Merkley right out of the gate) Meanwhile, the right side of the bracket has at least 6 celebrity billionaires running.

      And what planet does this person live on where Borey Crooker, Scamala Harris, Richard Blumenthal, and Mini-Me Gillibrand are considered progressives??

      Or for that matter, how are a bunch of career politicians considered “outsiders”??

      Most realistic thing about this concept though, is with a debate schedule beginning in June, it’s completely possible that you would have enough officially declared candidates by Mid March to actually make brackets.

      Lol! Yes, I wondered about the same things too. I think they threw in a number of strange people simply because they needed enough numbers to make the brackets work.

      No way their ‘classifications’ fit mine as to categorizing candidates. My main concern with the overall volume of potential candidates is that the Progressives shoot themselves in the foot when we have several running against one corporate Democrat. It dilutes the vote and the C-Dem wins. I don’t know if it’s ego or selfishness (I’m better than x,y,z so I’ll stay in the race) whatever the reasoning behind that costs everyone the seat. We saw it here in NM–three authentic Progressives rand against one pretender (Deb Haaland, Native American and Superdelegate Hillbot) and so we now have Haaland for our representative.

      Thank for your reply—I would love to pick your brain on how to address this problem.
