    Get ready for the “responsible” gun owner drive by in the dark of night. Not at all that I’m advocating for that, just that I expect it to happen.

    Ha ha, aren't you clever by parlaying the racist comment for Desantis into this thread.  It's comforting to know that one can be a racist AND a comedian.  The world's wonders will never cease.

    Someone should study trolls, to discover what gaping voids in their worthless lives they're trying to fill by aggravating strangers on the internet. What a hobby.

    I believe in the old people management adage of "calling out the behavior".  Don't ignore it to pretend it isn't an issue.  People should be called out for the things they do.  Feeding them, to me, means engaging in the argument to give it credibility.

    Good on you, I suppose, but with specific posters I don't see the point in even "calling out". They know their posts are bafflegab bullshit and are just playing with people, which is different than people who seem to genuinely hold opinions that I disagree with. There's a small number of posters on here that I don't even read any more, ever.

    Any doubt Harris Booker run against Trump?

    Having lost 1,000 seats and every branch of government except the deep state appointments, grandstanding is all the Dems can do. Its free advertising.

    Did someone mention desperation?

    GOP
    -Cory Booker spoke for 75% of his 30-minute questioning period
    -Booker interrupted Judge Kavanaugh 23 times in 30 minutes
    -Kamala Harris interrupted him 27 times in 30 minutes
     
    Looks like their 2020 campaigns have already begun.

    It can be true and also racist and sexist.

    should I make my predictions on the responses from the Hill-bot email list'ers?
    For now Ill quote the democratic leader Pelosi:

    “I don’t know that a person can tape a person without the person’s consent and then release it to the press,” Pelosi told reporters today. “In terms of candidates and campaigns I don’t see anything inappropriate in what Mr. Hoyer was engaged in — a conversation about the realities of life in the race as to who can make the general election.

    Here is the Democrats strategy to WINNING (worked so well over the past 10 years or so!)
    We're openly and admitting to rigging the "democratic primaries" (against progressives) because that's the best chance for "us" to "win". wait what?
    The proof and the reason why democratic voters should "trust their process"? 1000 SEATS AND HILLIARY CLINTON!
    Now I see why Hilliary email list is worth so much money! I should try to buy some or all of that list, I too have a few things to sell them
    In determining candidates, if I had to choose between a self-serving select few and the largely uneducated and/or ignorant population - I don't know which is less bad. Why do you feel the population is the lesser of two evils?
    Aren't you ignoring the point that the Democratic party leadership is shutting out progressive voices? Or do you think it is just coincidental that the progressives are rarely if ever backed (I posted a few examples, see Ironstache vs Myers, the guardian did an entire piece).
    I don't feel the population is the lesser of two evils, what make you assume that?

    If you want a "system" whereby the primary candidates are chosen by a select few, for example a board, then describe how it would work and we can discuss it. I'm addressing the current system in place, whereby candidates run in a primary and the winner as determined by the voters runs against the "opposing" party(s) in the general.

    If voters are too uneducated and ignorant for a thriving democracy, then have the Democratic party become a public company, that way shareholders have their say and the board of directors can choose the primary candidate (on behalf of their shareholders).
    This will do away with the charade of holding "democratic" primary elections and better yet save money on the primary elections while raising capital (publicly traded) for the party.
    I don't think I'm ignoring anything. With the current government structure in the US government, within the context of the federal republic, the democratic-ness of the system is defined by how much gatekeeping is done by the parties. As the gatekeeping functions of the parties are reduced (and please don't make it sound like ignoring progressive voices to assure a singular voice is an exclusively DNC affair), the democratic impact is heightened, and vice-versa. 

    The "Board of Directors" model you're referring to effectively is the DNC with its superdelegates (arguably your biggest problem with the system), so I'm not sure why you think that'd be preferable. 

    On the other side of the coin, the absence of the "Board of Directors" model is closer to the GOP with their lack of superdelegates. 

    Model A produced Hillary Clinton as a candidate. Model B produced Donald Trump as a candidate. 

    I'm not sure how anyone would read your lines and your disproportionate criticism of the DNC and its members, when compared to your hard-to-find GOP criticism, and disagree with my conclusion that you feel that the population is the lesser of two evils. 

    In my opinion, all roads lead to destruction.

    If the Dems take the House, and according to polls they are up by more than the gerrymander margin of five points needed to win, this will be interesting because...

    The Rs never had to deal with an aggressive  majority, since Nixon at least

    Obama not investigating torture and WMD lies may have been the biggest reason R's were able to recover so quickly with the voters.

    It's time to put that entire republican list on trial


    "President Trump’s tax returns


    Trump family businesses — and whether they comply with the Constitution's emoluments clause, including the Chinese trademark grant to the Trump Organization


    Trump's dealings with Russia, including the president's preparation for his meeting with Vladimir Putin


    The payment to Stephanie Clifford — a.k.a. Stormy Daniels


    James Comey's firing


    Trump's firing of U.S. attorneys


    Trump's proposed transgender ban for the military


    Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's business dealings


    White House staff's personal email use


    Cabinet secretary travel, office expenses, and other misused perks


    Discussion of classified information at Mar-a-Lago


    Jared Kushner's ethics law compliance


    Dismissal of members of the EPA board of scientific counselors


    The travel ban


    Family separation policy


    Hurricane response in Puerto Rico


    Election security and hacking attempts


    White House security clearances




    The spreadsheet includes requests for administration officials to be grilled by committee staff, requests for hearings to obtain sworn testimony, efforts to seize communications about controversial policies and personnel decisions, and subpoena threats.


    These demands would turn the Trump White House into a 24/7 legal defense operation.


    The bottom line: Thanks to their control of Congress, Republicans have blocked most of the Democrats’ investigative requests. But if the House flips, the GOP loses its power to stymie. Lawyers close to the White House tell me the Trump administration is nowhere near prepared for the investigatory onslaught that awaits them, and they consider it among the greatest threats to his presidency."

    just reading CNN's democratic "power rankings" and they list Elizabeth Warren as #1 (this week) as the leader in facing Trump in 2020. I think that would be a mistake. the average public will see her as just another Hillary. They need someone who seems dynamic and passionate, not just old and angry. 

    Not sure about Booker (his grandstanding seemed a bit disingenuous given what we know). But I like Kamala Harris. Could be too soon for her though. 

    But "Pocahontas" vs "The Orange Blob" might be interesting to watch.

    Yeah from my point of view (which tends to lean right if center overall but left if center socially)....I haven’t seen what I want from the Democratic Party. I’m concerned (like Jimmy Carter stated recently) that the Dems are running too far left.  

    Lots of time for someone to emerge. And it doesn’t matter much to me for this election as I will have to vote against trump anyhow. But I’m hoping to have a candidate that is a little closer to my viewpoints then I currently see.

    Agree to a point, for the material things.  The Democrats have to prove they can govern, first and foremost.  Turning the house into a daily trial might lead to re-election.  Ask William Jefferson and Newt about that.  Now I'm not saying that Clinton's offense is the same as Trump's, but it will turn the moderates off.  The main objective is to win the WH, not impeach the President.  The chances of getting 2/3 in the Senate is low.

    Obama and Bill Clinton were center left.  So were Kerry and Gore.  The only example we have on the hard left goes back to 72 and that didn't go over so well.

    Also in Senate and Congress. Moderates and center left.

    If a president like Obama was called a socialist by the right wing propaganda machine the dems might as well run real progressives.

    Edit.

    1972 reminds me of 2016. Felonies committed by Rs to make the dem look like a dangerous radical.

    Funny how crimes work.

    I think at the House level in particular, and the Senate a bit more broadly, candidates can run to reflect the views of their local constituencies.  Once you get national, you should have to move to center (right or left).  Trump was the anomaly there, but of course he lost the popular and only won the key swings by a small number of voters.  I think the conventional wisdom still holds, but I'm also biased to that theory since I'm a moderate. 

    Regarding 72, remember that neither Agnew or Nixon were under siege by scandal at the time of the election.  McGovern effectively consolidated the left wing vote to win the nomination.  But I'm not sure he was every really in the race.  He was also hurt badly by the revelation that his VP nomination underwent shock therapy.  Eagleton ended having to resign the candidacy.  I think there was still quite the anti-hippy hangover in the US
