Klobuchar surge in New Hampshire could reshuffle Democratic White House race

Bernie and the myth of the magic of turnout.

No, radical policies won’t drive election-winning turnout


Despite what Sanders says, Democrats still have to persuade voters in the middle.

 

No myth is stronger in progressive circles than the magical, wonderworking powers of voter turnout. It’s become a sort of pixie dust that you sprinkle over your strenuously progressive positions to ward off any suggestion that they might turn off voters.

She's been my top choice all along. She performs beautifully in the senate so has credible experience. She has strong African American support in her state. She wins bigly in precincts in her state th

Laughable given what you defend in the current incumbent.

Shes not running for ofgice in mexico. If thats the worse thing she does shes miles ahead.

Yah comparing apples and kangaroos. You are are huge denier if you think she should NOT know who the President of Mexico is. I was embarrassed for her watching her. This thread has ZERO to do with Trump and there is a Kansas City Kansas and Missouri.

Not being able to recall the name of someone is a lot different than not knowing who they are. I am sure that when  she needed to know his name she could ask an aid. 

 

She should have just replied that guy who speaks Spanish. Yeah, I know him.

For your consideration, obviously Amy is in the lane that feels Bernie is too far left to beat 45. Amy's lane is crowded. Bernie's isn't. 

 

An interesting quote from a leading voice that putting up someone from the far left is a gift to 45, and also not to get overly bogged down on small differences over policies -- JAMES CARVILLE.

If you don't win, you have nothing.
I think that Trumpism is the most odious and dangerous thing this country has faced since the fall of communism. The only thing between the United States and the Abyss is the democratic party.

-- beating 45 and making sure he actually leaves office if he loses. Whether that be with Klobuchar, Bloomberg, or fill in the blank, any other outcome would be tragic. 

 

Are you making the argument that if 45 is beaten he will refuse to leave office?  That he will somehow refuse to accept the election results and continue as President?

Yes that is a real risk. Anyone that has watched his behavior and speech would realize that by now. If he leaves office he's subject to indictment and prison. 

 

In essence you are suggesting that he would be staging a political coup, disregarding the US Constitution, and declaring himself the leader of the country with no end in sight.  Would the US Marshals and FBI allow this to happen and follow his directives?  In Thailand, yes this could very well happen.  Trump taking a play out of the Thailand political playbook?

There is a good chance he will try.  I don't think he has surrounded himself with enough people who put loyalty to Trump over loyalty to the US Constitution and rule of law, but he is trying.  If he's given four more years he may succeed.
