Re: Minimizing Sanders

They don't just support your policies because you have the same party affiliation as they do.

Of course not. I wrote that line of thinking only as a counter-point to the implication that Sanders wouldn't be able to get anything [more]

Re: Minimizing Sanders

And it has always been a huge mistake to just caucus with the Democrats, rather than join them (as virtually other progressives do). It limited his influence in Congress (where 99% of members are part of a political party), it limited his ability [more]

Re: Minimizing Sanders

But the President isn't the brake - he's the engine. And being the engine requires things that Sanders has never shown any interest in, aptitude for, or experience with.

Re: Minimizing Sanders

You have to work in a team, build coalitions, get people who share your views into elected office, collaborate with those who don't necessarily agree with you, identify areas of middle ground and make judgments about what aspects of your policy [more]

Re: Minimizing Sanders

His choice to remain independent did little more than create obstacles for him being able to actually advance his priorities, and limit his ability to help other people advance his priorities. A progressive Congresscritter or Senator from a safe [more]

Re: Minimizing Sanders

He's removed himself from the Democratic party to be an independent - which to my mind, is almost disqualifying alone because of the utter lack of political instincts it shows. Even as an independent, he's shown no prior interest in coming out of [more]

Kenya, two weeks in March, and the weather was perfect. As mentioned, we went through Roberts Safaris.

Re: Should Meet the Press do this?

Sadly Chuck Todd, and just about every "TV Journalist" are idjits and incapable of actually presenting news without spin of some sort.

Re: It's All Going To Plan

Sanders's message isn't "raise taxes and expand government,"

Sure it is.

Health care, environmental regulation, and education are pet issues of his that involve more government rather than less government. [more]

Re: It's All Going To Plan

A side note. The Clintons were "dead" broke," according to them when they left the White House. Now, 15 year later, their net worth is in excess of $100 million. Ask yourself how they "earned" that money and then think a [more]
