Excerpts from the article:

Senator Kamala Harris greets supporters along the rope line after a campaign rally. She hugs admirers, poses for selfies and warmly thanks person after person for attending.

Watching on her TV, Renata Espinoza stares and shakes her head.

"Is it the real you?" Espinoza asks of the candidate on screen. "Or is it not? We never saw that," she said. "It upsets me because I see her doing that now, and I wish she would have done that back then."

The "back then" is 2004, when Espinoza, her husband Isaac and Harris were all part of San Francisco's extended law and order family - Isaac Espinoza as a police officer and Harris as the city's newly elected district attorney.

It was when Renata Espinoza became a widow and when the prosecutors' mantra of standing "for the people" suddenly became for her, and her murdered husband.

^^ Oh. I assume the reason wannabe political leaders don’t want to publicly release their tax returns is because they've been dodgy. But when it comes to wannabe Democrat leaders who go on and on about their concern for the poor people, it's actually because they are millionaire's.

That's a fundamental misunderstanding of the situation. Some people who have comfortable lives, and even the sort of minimal security of a million or two to ensure they will still be comfortable if they need a lot of medical intervention, would like other people to have the same opportunity to also have a secure retirement or even provide well for their families.

There's nothing wrong with that.

What we decry is the exceedingly wealthy who do not share, who instead see life in a distorted way, as if it was a game of Risk -- winner take all, where eventually one player has everything while every other person on earth has nothing.

The problem is not that there are millionaires. It's that some of them -- some of them -- buy influence with the government to skew the playing field in their favor.

Honest millionaires like Warren Buffett will say things like, "There's class warfare, all right, but it's my class, the rich class, that's making war, and we're winning." They will say that it would be more fair for them to pay higher taxes.

Excerpts from the article:

A relatively unknown millennial mayor is cutting through a crowded field of 18 Democrats vying for their party’s presidential nomination and the chance to take on FM45 in 2020.

Boasting an impressive resume – Harvard grad, Rhodes scholar, Afghanistan war veteran, multilingual McKinsey consultant, concert pianist, author of a New York Times bestseller – Pete Buttigieg has generated much enthusiasm among several top Democrats.

In just one month, Buttigieg, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Ind., has transformed from being a long-shot to his party’s breakout star.

If elected, he would be the youngest and first openly gay occupant of the Oval Office, as well as the first candidate ever to leap from city hall to the White House.

We're actually more in agreement than you want to know. I have had conversations with friends where I have postulated the superiority of the parliamentary system. In many of those countries you have eight or more parties, and then they have to form coalitions to form a government. It forces conversation and compromise.

"Former vice-president Joe Biden formally joined the crowded Democratic presidential contest on Thursday, betting that his working-class appeal and ties to Barack Obama's presidency will help him overcome questions about his place in today's increasingly liberal Democratic Party."

"privately, Trump allies have warned that Biden might be the biggest re-election threat given the former vice president's potential appeal among the white working class in the Midwest, the region that gave Trump a path to the presidency."

"His first White House bid in 1988 ended after a plagiarism scandal."

"altogether different message from the other candidates, who have argued that Democrats must offer something more than an anti-Trump message to win in 2020. After all, Trump's unfitness for office was Hillary Clinton's central argument in 2016 and she lost."

""The man in the White House is not the cause of what is broken, he is just the latest and most extreme symptom of what has gone wrong in America," Warren said when launching her campaign. "A product of a rigged system that props up the rich and powerful and kicks dirt on everyone else.""

" ...Sanders said: "If we spend all our time attacking Trump, you know what, Democrats are going to lose"

"Biden is making a bet - a big bet - that Sanders and Warren are wrong. He believes Democrats are so repulsed by Trump's behaviour that they will pick the person most likely to defeat him, not the one who most excites them.

He's not offering a political revolution but a return to normalcy: essentially the third term of the Obama-Biden era."

^^ "According to Politico, the President just six months ago was talking privately with aides about the threat posed by the former vice president, saying: “How are we gonna beat Biden?”

When reassured Mr Biden would never defeat his rivals within the Democratic party, Mr Trump pushed back: “But what if he does?""

"The source of his fear, Politico speculates, is that the two have so much in common. Both Mr Trump and Mr Biden are 70-something white men who take an unscripted, speak-off-the-cuff approach to politics.

Both tend to target and have a proven ability to win over less-educated blue-collar voters."

Having "actual policy ideas & plans" never made anyone the front runner. Has this person recently arrived from another planet? Why isn't Warren the front runner? Well, maybe it's because she hasn't been a national political figure very long. Really, she has not been in politics very long. Some might be turned off by the fact she's been a Republican most of her life. Some might find her remedies to the country's economic issues too radical. Some might find her speaking style annoyingly strident. The Democratic party is comfortable nominating a woman to be their candidate in a presidential race. They just did it. Warren has an equal opportunity to show Democrats they should do it once more. Please spare us all the "woe is us"nonsense.

Granted, it is early, and her most formidable opponents are better funded. And of course, this is just one poll of many more to come, but she’s off to a pretty good start. She’s my favorite to win the Democratic nomination.

She doesn’t have nearly the political and personal baggage that Harris and Biden have. Her relative inexperience in national politics compared to Sanders may actually be more of an advantage than disadvantage - Trump was elected with zero political experience, and Obama had only been a US Senator for a short while before he was elected. That said, I will fully support whoever gets the Democratic primary win.

Well that was my real point; see earlier posts I made about pundits who claim "Hillary never talked policy, only about Trump" as if her policies mattered to her critics.

So you are right, male, female -- detailed policy proposals -- at least this early before the first debate even, are not going to get news coverage, and are not going to sway critics from the opposite side.

One of the keys to Trump's 2016 victory was his populist positions. He tapped into a collective undercurrent of resentment by those who felt left behind by the "elites". Now, at least a few of those voters who yearned for a President who will look after the middle class have come to realize that Mr. Shits-in-a-golden-toilet never really had their best interests in mind after all. Who will be the leader in this new post-Trump populist movement? The top choices that come to mind are Bernie and Elizabeth Warren.

Here's why I like Warren: Authenticity. She has spent the majority of her career looking after the interest of those in our country who don't have the kind of resources that the wealthy and well-connected do. It will be easy for her to convince everyday Americans that she is on our side, because she has been doing this long before she became a national political figure. If there is any doubt, look at the books she's written or co-authored over the years:

Warren just needs to bring in more money to get her message out there.

Yes, that's me - I'm a proud Democratic hack! I like that label so much, from now going forward, you can call me "hacko69".

I wasn't always like this, but now that I've seen what the GOP is capable of, fuck 'em. I'm not saying the Democratic party is perfect - far from it. But the Democratic party isn't the sewer of fealty and stupidity like the GOP has become. When I see simpering fools like Lindsay Graham, Matt Gaetz, and Pence sing the praises of shit-brain Trump, I get embarrassed for our entire country. It is a sign of great weakness among our politicians, to see them lying prostrate at the feet of the orange shit-stain. Remember this meeting ( )? One of the most bizarre spectacles of complete and utter weakness that I have ever seen in my life.

As far as I'm concerned, voters who supports Trump are, to use the words of MAGAts, "betas" and "". They don't want a President. They want a "daddy" who will take charge and tell them what to do. Trump has tapped in to a weird zeitgeist among the GOP - the need to find an assertive leader to unquestioningly obey. But even weirder, there is a subset of them who deep down worship Trump, but outwardly proclaim "I didn't vote for him" or "I don't support him". Yet, they never criticize anything Trump says or does, and they attack anyone who has something bad to say about their "daddy", which betrays their true loyalties. Does that sound familiar to you?

At the current time, many commentators feel that Biden poses the biggest thread to Trump if Biden has learned from past elections. This includes Chris Christie. Of course, there is a long, long, long time before the election and in politics, a long, long, long time is more like eons considering how fast public opinion can change. The educated commentators actually talk about real threats. The fake talking heads make bad claims like Hewitt.

Excerpts from the article:

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke came to the defense of fellow 2020 rival Pete Buttigieg after anti-gay protesters heckled Buttigieg at an event in Texas on Friday.

"Texans don't stand for this kind of homophobia and hatred. Mayor Pete, we are grateful you came to Texas and hope to see you and Chasten back again soon," O'Rourke, a former Texas congressman, wrote on Twitter.

"a three-judge panel from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio argues that the map was intentionally drawn "to disadvantage Democratic voters and entrench Republican representatives in power." The court argues the map violates voters' constitutional right to choose their representatives and exceeds the state's powers 

...we declare Ohio's 2012 map an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander, enjoin its use in the 2020 election, and order the enactment of a constitutionally viable replacement," 

"The ruling against Ohio comes just over one week after a federal court in Michigan struck down that map as unconstitutional. The judges said Republicans drew the map to unfairly disadvantage Democrats and that the state must redraw its district lines"

For a 2-party system like what the States have, "first-past-the-post" or "most votes wins", is a much better option than "proportional representation" or America's current system (i.e. electoral college).

You would remove issues like gerrymandering.

“hard to imagine two more different candidates: Sanders, an avowed socialist and only sometimes-Democrat, and Biden, the head of the Democratic establishment following Obama's second term. And yet according to a new Morning Consult poll, Biden is the second choice of Sanders voters - and Sanders is the second choice of Biden voters.

What's that about?

Part of it is name recognition - more voters have heard of Sanders and Biden than any of the other candidates. But the major driver of the ideology-free nominee preferences is the Democratic watchword of 2020: electability. For most Democrats, it's at the top of their wishlist for the coming election, trumping every other consideration.

Perhaps that shouldn't come as a shock. The 2016 election was a scarring experience for the party, which believed it had a lock on the showdown between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The lingering trauma of that nasty Election Night surprise feels more pressing than ever as the election draws nearer and the party gets a second chance to edge out Trump.

[…]

“Democrats are not only banking on electability, but on a specific theory of the case: that the best route to victory runs though the Rust Belt, the white male voters in working-class jobs in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan who provided the 70,000 votes that tipped the electoral college toward Donald Trump. Many Democrats believe that Sanders, with his economics-first message, and Biden, with his white blue-collar cred, are the best hope for attracting those voters.

That's a gamble, because the victories of 2017 and 2018 rested on a very different theory: that energising black, Latino, and women voters would give the Democrats the boost they needed. But so far, Democrats seem to be heading into 2020 with far more caution, too worried about Donald Trump to continue down the path they forged in the past few years.”

The fact that Clinton lost the Electoral College vote is no reason to abolish it. Again, we are a republic, not a democracy, and the Electoral College is where all the states vote for our national leader on an equal footing. A presidential candidate who can't grasp that essential point isn't getting my vote.
