Re: Why Clinton.

The math problem is still there, electoral vote count. If the GOP nominates Walker, Cruz, Ryan, or any of that group, it's an automatic win for any Dem nominee IMO. The Progressives know this, and are trying as hard as possible to get their own left [more]

Re: Why The GOP Has a Lock On The House

Interesting? More like old news. The article chalks up the House disparity to two factors: gerrymandering (surprise!) and sharp dislike for Obama among rural conservatives (shock and awe!). If we drew Congressional district boundaries to (roughly) [more]

Re: Dream a little smaller...

I second 1pg's vote (figurative, at this point) for Warren over Hillary Clinton. And I understand the objections that she's not a realistic choice. I'm just afraid that the "realistic" choice would mean business as usual and a continued [more]

Re: Warren Smacks Down McConnell, Cantor

Warren is a hypocrite and full of "stuff"

College isn't too expensive because student loans rates are too high. It's too expensive because of overpaid facility and the fact that schools hoard [more]

Re: Poll: E. Warren (a poll for Progressives)

We need to get rid of "Citizens United" and its ever-increasing toxic run-off. The fiction that big money doesn't corrupt our political process defies the very common sense that many conservatives ardently insist they stand for. We don't [more]

Re: Poll: E. Warren (a poll for Progressives)

I was in the (admittedly small) plurality: Clinton, but reluctantly. I'm not going to help sabotage the future by voting for an even "stronger" corporatist from the other side of the aisle. And sitting out just cedes victory to the cynics [more]

Re: Is it just me ...

As always, genetics does play a role. And growing up under the thumb of one of the coldest, most arrogant public figures in contemporary American history probably didn't promote much civility.

Re: GOP is Heading for a World of Hurt on Bergdahl

I wish I could be optimistic about the subject line in the OP. But I'm not. As other current threads on this board reveal, we are a crisis culture; we do not, in a deep irony, change what is most deeply broken until it is nearly beyond repair . . . [more]
