Bummer, I feel like he would have done better in 2016, but maybe not. Surprised he didn't do better IMO.

Super Liberal policies are NOT going to get a democrat to the table.

The Democrats just havent realized this yet.

"Politico reported she was rewarded with $600,000 a year to do what ended up being occasional fluffy feature stories."

He never had a chance. He's the one who blocked legislation that would have allowed the government to negotiate with the pharmaceutical industry over drug pricing for Medicare recipients. When the discussion in this primary season is largely over M4A you're going to have a tough time trying to argue that your prior, yet recent, positions are are what will bring us toward that goal.

There is nothing a Dem could do to get your vote, so your opinion is useless

I thought Elizabeth Warren was a woman of color. After all she's 1/1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Cherokee Indian and she submitted an Indian-food recipe in some cookbook.

I was reacted with "huhh?" when some people described him as the next Obama. Booker was a terrible speaker who came across like a creepy high school principal who likes to dress up on weekends.

Wonder what happened to T-bone.

You dont know what my opinion of Dems is. You know my opinion of Liberals, but not Dems.

I'm looking for a Dixicrat, a true moderate. Do they even exist anymore? That is the type of person who can beat Trump..Not Cory Booker.

Amazing.....all the young "rockstars," Beto the Meto, Heels Up Harris, and Spartacus have exited stage left. In the end, it'll be between two ancient rich white liberal men, and one rich white liberal woman. Oh the irony.

A totally ridiculous comment. A Dixiecrat is a moderate???? Hilarious!!! In truth, a Dixiecrat is a Republican today.

Who then will run against the richer, whiter Trump. Your comments about Democrats seem rather foolish considering who your candidate is.

You're absolutely right. They are making the same mistake that they did in 2016. What the Democrat elite needs (but will not find) is more one-issue, hyper-spastic, blockheaded numbskulls in their base who would vote for their party's version of Donald J. Trump.

Unfortunately, a majority of the barnacle-brained inbreds in this great country of ours seem to gravitate toward the current Republican party, so the Dems are left with trying to find someone who can out-stupid the current stupid in the White House.

Rest assured Gracie, I know you'll do your part for the Republican side and pull the lever for your preferred narcissist, liar and pervert. Your intellectual capacity (at least how it is reflected on this website) has been pretty much a given since 2010.

Dixiecrat-- It was an obvious freudian slip on Boaz' part.

For example, Strom Thurmond switched parties because he felt the inside of a Republican KKK hood felt softer to his rather sensitive, racist skin.

#15 Out-stupid? Your side is doing a hell of a job doing that to each other. CNN Breaking news now, link posted n backpage, reporting Sanders told Warren in 2018 that a woman could never win a presidential election. Carry on and by all means keep on keeping on doing your best to get Trump elected.

According to the majority of left-leaning posters here, Trump is neither rich nor white. That rather invalidates your point.

Yeah, duuuh! I just said that.

"Your side is doing a hell of a job doing that to each other"

My side? I don't take sides, hotcakes. I leave that for you and the other supporters of that infected piece of maggot ---- in the White House. And when I mean piece of maggot ----, I'm not even referring to his actual policies. He could be the local roto-rooter employee and I would still think he is not cut out for the job-- because, in order to CLEAN ---- UP, you can't be a pile of it yourself.

Anyway, you have fun crowing over your steaming pile of fascista. I don't hold my breath waiting for a Democrat that will be able to overcome the massive landfill of idiocy that you and your cult leader are a part of. Stupid has definitely taken hold in America for the long haul. It was kinds predicted back when that dunderhead Sarah Palin managed to find her way as VP candidate. I kinda felt that STUPID was quickly overrunning the GOP and America in general-- like an infectious disease.

I'm pretty good at picking horse at the track, but this was a case where I hoped that my prognostication abilities were dead wrong. You hold tight to that winning ticket of yours, sweetie.

Gabbard's domestic policy platform in her campaign for the 2020 Democratic nomination is economically and socially progressive and has been described as "similar to Bernie Sanders ... in many respects".[6] She supports Medicare for All[7] and strengthening the reproductive rights framework of Roe v Wade by codifying it into federal law.[8] She voted and lobbied against LGBT rights in Hawaii prior to her first tour of duty, but in 2012 Gabbard she apologized for her "anti-gay advocacy".

My vision of a Dixicrat is now where near Bernie Sanders.

A moderate isn't going to win a damn thing.

You need pro-labor and antiwar to win. That's exactly how Bernie and Trump won the rust belt.

"and antiwar to win""

Unfortunately this won't happen, because American men by and large have---------- syndrome.

I am a dual national-- the other being Swiss, and as I get older, I identify more and more with its neutrality, smart financial sense and and no-nonsense non-interventionism. My ancestors forged a free, stable country between big stupid empires such as France, Spain, Italy and Germany by the way of occasional force, fierce loyalty, determination of the will and mercenary actions-- but we only go so far as we need and we NEVER go beyond bounds.

I must admit, in Switzerland I feel empowered-- but only by being limited and knowing my own boundaries. I carry and use guns, climb mountains and yodel until my ears throb, but when I feel like it, I go wherever the hell I want on my Swiss passport-- which carries a type of respect in the world that goes far beyond that of my fairly unused American one.

Yes, I'm bragging. America only dreams of being Switzerland, but it could be more swiss-like if it just stepped back and made shrewd decisions based on logic and self-limitation. But not while it is meddling around in other countries and electing ------- as chief executive.

You won't find too many politicians who openly support segregation, like Dixiecrats do.

The world is watching the American elections closely. If we vote Trump in again, the world is going to disregard the whole of the US and wipe us out.

The world govts have given us an opportunity to rid of Trump and if he wins in Nov., it's going to be taken as a reluctance to take out the trash.

America vs the world? Riiight.

Southeastern Michigan is. They gave the primary to Bernie and the general to Trump.

Trump won, brought NAFTA 2.0 and escalated in the middle east.

He's out of ammo in the Rust Belt.
