Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, February 24, 2020

Donald Trump has told reporters Vermont senator Bernie Sanders is the 2020 rival he fears the most during his tour of India. "I actually think he would be tougher than most of the other candidates because he is like me," Trump said while en route to the Taj Mahal in Agra, India. The president added, "I have a much bigger base" than Sanders.

Trump again asserted that the Democratic Party would do all it could to prevent Sanders from becoming the nominee, and predicted the Democratic primaries would end in a brokered convention. "It could go to the convention. It really could," Trump said. "They are going to take it away from Crazy Bernie. They are not going to let him win."

In August and September of 2016 Hillary was floating names for her cabinet too.

Hillary Clinton promised Monday that if she wins the race for the White House, half of her Cabinet will be composed of women.

During MSNBCs town hall with Clinton Monday night, host Rachel Maddow asked the former secretary of state how her Cabinet might look, citing Canada's new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who picked an equal number of women and men for his Cabinet following his election in November.

"[Trudeau] promised when he took office that he would have a cabinet that was 50 percent women, and then he did it. He made good on his promise," Maddow said. "Would you make that same pledge?"

"I am going to have a Cabinet that looks like America, and 50 percent of America is women," Clinton replied.

Polls are interesting snapshots.

My sense of a Sanders-Trump race is that the nuking the GOPiggies will inflict on Sanders and the down-ticket blast furnace that will be turned on Dems in general (because Sanders is at the top of the ticket) will be horrific. Like Seoul, if the Norks ever decide to set their artillery firing.

Avigdore gets it, even though leftcoastlawyer (in popst #1) doesn't. See also Tom Sawyer whitewashing the fence.

That's a myopic argument. Even if we had full employment in America, the life of an employed American could be made much better by first world healthcare, family leave and child benefit programs. People like Sanders recognize this and lay bare the flaws in the American system and work to correct it. But you can pretend that just because everyone has a job at McDonald's that this means nothing could be better.

Bernie will tax wage earners to death. Prepare for lineups at the food pantry.

Never believe a word that comes out of your political opponents mouth during a campaign.
