    Warren is one of the few who has a clue, out of that bunch. Beto seems ok, I'd vote for him.

    But this is the Democratic Party, their leaders are corrupt and their base is spineless, so they'll probably wind up with some compromise, corporate-insider, on the basis of what they consider "electable." That's how we ended up with the Clintons. And that's why I picked Biden : he's their sort of guy.

    "Warren is like Sanders" is the 2020 version of "Hillary is electable."

    It's total bullshit, yet it's widely repeated, and the people who say it just assume that everyone else should agree.

    The one I think the Republicans should be most afraid of is Biden. The Dems will fuck it up an run Warren though.

    This would have been a better poll if you asked people who they WANT to be the democratic nominee.

    At least that would have been an accurate representation of who people on TMB support. But as it stands now people are just bloviating and throwing darts predicting who will actually become the nominee.

    You don't have to "care", and I don't "care" if you care. The evidence speaks for itself. I'm 1-0 in predicting what an awful candidate someone is. The real thing is that I was right, Hillary was a terrible candidate to run. Fuck with me, son.

    No. And that's because she brought almost nothing to the table from a progressive standpoint in order to get young people and progressives excited to get out and vote for her. The same cannot be said for Warren.

    If Trump wins again give me Gavin Newsom in 2024. Too soon for him to run in 2020; but I would vote for him

    i heard a comment on an old c-span rerun recently, dated from the late 80's, from Christopher Hitchens (who was a British democratic socialist)

    "It is widely known that the people who run the Democratic Party would rather lose the general election, than have 'their guy' lose the primaries."

    i think he nailed it, and 30 years later it's just as accurate.

    I don't know that this was the singular cause, though.

    I think he was suggesting that the root cause of this anti-democratic behavior went very deep, and had quite a bit to do with pro-establishment influence from the media (specifically wapo and nyt), and a belief among the party leadership that the party's voters couldn't be trusted (intellectually speaking) to make these kinds of decisions.

    Oh, it definitely made sense in response to your claim that you definitively know when someone is a bad candidate because Hillary lost that one time.

    It made no sense in response to my post.

    Hope that helps you.
