Oh for f**k's sake people. Let's wait for an actual horserace poll before proclaiming Hillary's inevitability again.

I don't think it will change the dynamics of the race much, if at all.

Not too shabby.

The problem with Santander isn't that he's conservative. You shouldn't be making assumptions about people's motivations when you (by your own admission) have no idea what you're talking about.

didn't you just make the assumption earlier in this thread that Santamander was a coward for not engaging with whatever this thread is supposed to be?

Well, there's no other plausible explanation.

one of whom fought bravely notwithstanding overt government discrimination against his ethnicity

you can't possibly be serious

I think he's talking about Inouye on that one.

God I hope so.

One thing to keep in mind is that the Tories or interests that support them more or less control the British press. Being "as good as the Tories" will never be good enough for a Labour leader, they have to be beyond any reproach or else they will be demolished.

Do we count the Italian Democrats as social Democrats?

Despite the fact that they are the surprising child of the DCs and PCI yes.
Interesting how Renzi has used Obama and Clinton as a model. Can socdems really use ordoliberals as a model for success?

These distinctions are (sadly) increasingly meaningless in the modern political context.

If you're a Fortune 100 CEO, you're a very smart, hard-working, highly successful person. That, of course, doesn't mean that millions of other people aren't also all of those qualities, but if I were running for president, I would want the support of all 100 of them. You (should) always want the smart, successful people on your side.

Well, you would put that turkey in this thread, wouldn't you?

I wouldn't actually have noticed the post if not for the discussion about it in this thread's opposite Tongue

It seems rather odd to me that "CEOs are smart, powerful people, and you should want them to be your allies" is even a controversial statement; there's no moral judgment of any sort being made and it struck me as simply being a true observation.

The founding principle of left-wing politics, as I understand it, is that powerful people ought to be, if not the enemy (whatever Schmitt said, I don't believe that politics should be about designing enemies), at least the adversary. Powerful people can become allies if and only if they acknowledge the fundamental injustice of their social position (in modern terms, if they "check their privilege") and embrace an agenda aimed at undermining it.

I like when well-off internet liberals who know literally nothing about living in any sort of life of struggle make the assumption that people in rural areas aren't voting Democrat because some other people on the internet said something mean about them.

Newsflash: They know exactly who they're voting for and why they're doing it - and people saying mean stuff about them on the internet is not why.

Of course, I expect them to continue ignoring people who actually associate and interact with them simply because "i read a book about them lol Smiley"

I know it's become a cliché to point it out but, still, thanks for posting this directly in the thread it belongs to.

Obama pls drone
Decent person pls primary

He's term-limited in 2018. Hopefully we can have Chiang instead of Newsom.

Agreed. Chiang would be a great Governor.

Endorsed. #NeverNewsom

If there's a primary I'll try to convince as many people at UCLA to support Chiang.

Bernie is a FF, and Hillary should consider herself lucky she had him as an opponent.
92  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Jerry Brown vetoes state reimbursement of San Bernardino attack first responders on: September 25, 2016, 04:44:45 pm
Oh for f**k's sake, Brown is getting ridiculous now.

So Democratic hatred of rural voters has now extended to areas that voted for Obama twice? Great.

Seeing as Santander hasn't taken up the challenge, we must conclude that he's a coward and a poltroon.

Yeah, this isn't a good time to be a left-winger.

Has it ever been? Tongue

1945-1973 seems like it was a pretty sweet time, all in all.

Leahy, of course.

I thought it was going to be about the longest-serving Senators in history (ie Byrd, Thurmond, Kennedy, etc). That would have been more interesting.
