^This,^ and etc.
Of course they are. They can’t get fully behind Warren, because even she’s too liberal for them; but she’s their best shot at preventing further defections to Bernie. And this helps keep Klobuchar alive, since she might prove their best remaining option if Biden implodes and assuming Bernie doesn’t take the nomination on the first round.

snot replied to the topic Bernie Sanders: "I don't tolerate bullshit terribly well" Bernie's NYT's interview(clips on twitter) in the forum General Discussion 14 hours ago
That is a weird clip. Could they sit any farther from him? And I’m glad their staff includes people of color, but it almost appears staged to make PoC’s look distant, disaffected, skeptical of him. Do we know who are the other people in the scene? The takeaway impression is of profound unease, even though they’re letting him have his say and…[Read more]
snot replied to the topic Guardian: 'Believe women' is being cheapened to score political points. That will backfire in the forum General Discussion 1 day ago
“Believe women” should mean, take women’s claims seriously enough to investigate them seriously and to accord their words equal initial credibility with those of the men they accuse.
It should not mean, don’t investigate at all and disregard all contrary evidence.

It’s not plausible to me that all these candidates are still in the race because (1) as we were told at first, they all think beating Trump will be a cakewalk, or (2) because they need to stay in the race in order to be considered for VP, or (3) just to push some particular issue, although that may be part of their motivation. Remember, in 2016,…[Read more]
