    Yes, I changed it because Trump was kind enough to coalesce the caucus for the Democrats.  Also, Biden didn't take the bait on Bernie's staff.  Can the progressives also show restraint?  We'll see what happens at the next debate.
    Fair enough. I actually just have an affinity for the word "dumbass" and enjoyed the phrase "the circular firing squad of dumbasses." Especially when it's referring to some of the most powerful people in the world. But I've loved "dumbass" since I was like 12 years old. "Idiot," "moron," and  "stupid" sound mean-spirited. But dumbass? You can't be that insulted by it. 

    Once I was curious if dumbass was one words or two. So I typed it into google and clicked the top urban dictionary definition, and then laughed hysterically....https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=dumbass

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard says Trump is "inciting Racism" | The View




    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Calls Harris' Exchange with Biden "Underhanded" | The View

    I think this has potential for some debate night fireworks. I’m glad to see Biden have at least one ally on stage with him. 
    Side note: I’m not looking forward to DeBlasio running his fat mouth.

    I'm a big fan of anything that starts with 'dil'.  dil-weed, dil-hole, dil-do.  You get the picture.  I remember it was probably 2004 when we first discovered Urban Dictionary at work.  This was when I was in a huge corp environment.  We literally got nothing done for about 3 weeks.  We played ping pong and got lost in Urban Dictionary.  We were introduced to such genius words like the Cincinnati bowtie, Cajun Hot Stick, Glass bottom boat, etc. It was fantastic!  Alas, eventually the site was blocked.

    Moderates gonna hammer Sanders and Warren on the 30th? That actually has potential to be a very interesting debate even though night two seems to have the most hype surrounding it.

    I think it would be that I was hardened.  But I have been paying attention.

    He has released a number of policies.  This allows him to have some better talking points during the debates.

    I don't blame Biden for defending himself here.  He's tried very hard not to attack Democrats.  Frustrating as hell.

    The one thing Fox News gets credit for is their polls. 

    The one thing Trump attacks is their polls

    Ouch.  Unfortunately, no one else has shown themselves as being qualified to this point.

    Lol, just how I’m feeling right now. I could change my mind in the next 30 secs. I do feel this would give the Dem ticket some much needed enthusiasm. Pence and Trump ain’t no spring chickens.

    Biden could never select Bernie.  He's too much of a wild card and not a team player.  He would be rogue in the admin, I think.  Warren would be a better VP, I think.

    Hmmm, I just think the Pocahontas thing is going to turn a lot of uneducated/blue collar voters off. I’m probably wrong and I hate to keep harping on that, but I just don’t see it working. Biden/Harris seems more plausible.
