RE: THE DEMS PLAN A COMEBACK

I really like Bernie Sanders and believed early on that Wasserman-Shultz and the DNC was stacking the deck against him in terms of winning the Democratic nomination. They seemed to resent Bernie's run and his ability to pack stadiums because they felt Hillary Clinton was somehow entitled to the nomination or something. Rubbed me wrong.

The hacked DNC emails confirmed that the DNC was partial to Clinton. It really pissed off the hard-core Bernie supporters and got Wasserman-Schultz sacked (finally).

Now, her interim replacement as DNC Chair, Donna Brazile (top left), has written a book. In it, she claims that she was shocked to find that Clinton was essentially running the DNC. She says the DNC was $24 million in debt nearing the end of Obama's term. Clinton made a deal to raise serious funds and, in turn, the Clinton campaign would have full control of DNC spending and operations. Story: http://www.newsweek.com/clinton-robbed-s...ile-699421

I believe Brazile. I don't think the arrangement between Clinton and the DNC was illegal, but it was definitely wrong, in my opinion.

Brazile said she told Bernie what she found and he responded stoically. I imagine he wasn't surprised.

Anyway, this is definitely a set-back for the Dems short-term, and good ammunition for Trump and the Republicans on the road to the 2018 midterms. I hope the Dems can address it honestly and try to get their own split party together by then, but not sure they can/will.

Democrats are a freakin' mess. I don't see anyone in a leadership role at all.

RE: THE DEMS PLAN A COMEBACK

They're separate issues. No one's above the law -- not the President, not Republicans, not Democratic leaders or former candidates.

The Dems can't get Trump in or out of trouble in terms of the Russia investigation. Whether any collusion is uncovered and whether the president is implicated should be based on the facts and evidence discovered. If there's no evidence of collusion with a foreign government and no evidence of other illegality, great. If there is evidence, anyone who broke the law should be held accountable.

As for the agreement between the DNC and Clinton, she raised the money which (according to Brazile) she then ultimately controlled. Even though it's shitty and was unfair to the other Democratic candidates in my opinion, I don't see how it could be deemed illegal. Even so, it hurts the image of the party and will be used over and over by the President and Republicans against Democratic congressional and gubernatorial candidates.

I imagine a lot of Democrats wish Hillary Clinton would just ride off into the sunset at this point.

hah

Little Hillary is cute, but little Betty Rubble is even cuter.

Kinda weird that they both have blackheads before they even eat pounds of Halloween candy. Or maybe those are whiskers -- still weird.

115 Fuckin' Betty, always trying to position herself as Snow White, even if it means donning blackheads and/or whiskers. What a poser!

At the very least, Trump owes the DNC a big thank you. I think Bernie could have beat Trump and I suspect a lot of voters who voted for Trump did so because they didn't want to cast a vote for Hil.

RE: THE DEMS PLAN A COMEBACK

It's an important election night which both the Democrats and Republicans believe could be a sign of things to come in the 2018 Congressional elections.

The DNC is not as united as it should be and the nature and timing of the recent revelations by Donna Brazile have only lowered Democratic voters' approval ratings for the party.

And, Republicans aren't sure if Trump's low general population approval ratings will hurt Republican candidates, especially since Trump's pick in the Alabama Republican Senate primaries was beaten by Bannon's pick (and Bannon's choice is batshit, in my opinion).
