The show finds Emily Dickinson (Hailee Steinfeld) in the 1850s as she struggles to follow her dreams of becoming a poet at a time when female writers were frowned upon. Her father Edward (Toby Huss) sours at the idea of people in Massachusetts finding out she's a writer, afraid of the shame she'll bring to their family.

Only two people support her ambitious desires: George Gould (Samuel Farnsworth), a local literary magazine editor who also wants to marry Emily, and Sue Gilbert (Ella Hunt), her best friend turned secret lover. read more

They were so disappointed that they elected him a second time... and if you think he wouldn't win this time were he able to run.... then I have some swamp lan... er, real estate down here in FL you should look at.

Progressive policy is not radical change; by definition it is "happening or developing gradually or in stages; proceeding step by step.".

Most voters want progressive change, not radical change; they want better health care, but not starting with taking away their employer-based benefits, economic fairness, but not burning down the bank that holds their mortgage.

People are willing to be led in a progressive direction, unless of course they are threatened with particularly disruptive radical change.

Trump duped rwingers, which was easy enough, and some moderates who thought he was "anti-establishment" when in reality he was and is as establishment as most international business owners are; totally self-concerned.

As long as the far left, where my ideals are, keeps confusing their own views on tactics of how to get to real change with those acceptable to most voters, they will continue to take two steps back for each step forward they make.

Most voters, as every poll shows, agree with the major policy goals of liberals and progressives. What they don't agree with is radical change they don't understand or when haven't been shown realistic numbers and plans to reach those goals.

Bernie did no one any favor last time with half-baked, GOP-esque "magical growth" fuzzy math rather than solid economic plans that achieve realistic results, along with realistic tactics to turn them into legislation.

Maybe this time he or Warren will have real plans... or even Biden who would actually eventually get the the same goals just using slower, more acceptable tactics.

I hope Bernie or Warren *or both are successful, but cutting off one's nose *see: Obama, to spite one's face, *see liberal goals, is just more puritanical myopia.
