126  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Sanders hadn't run, would Hillary have done better in the GE? on: November 12, 2016, 03:02:48 am
I would doubt it. Of anything, she would have possibly done worse.
Sanders drew interest into the race, and much of that was funneled to Clinton's campaign.

Her endorsement would be a liability.

Nothing he states in this video is objectively incorrect, perhaps watch the video prior to posting.

The point is that the Left must grow and organize in order to sufficiently provide fierce resistance to the future Trump Administration's abhorrent policies as well as press demands whenever possible. This must be seen as an opportunity. Trump indeed puts an "ugly face" to ugly policies, and, in theory, subsequently generating a genuine opposition could prevent much of it from going into effect. The Democrats, now at a crossroads, should rise to this occasion and seek to embrace the progressive wing and commit to a hard-reset of the DNC.

For the guy saying she was worse than Mondale, um, she did better than Mondale. She did better than Dukakis, Kerry, and Gore. Even Trump she got more votes!

I was referring to her strength as a candidate and her campaign in general - worst since Mondale. This was set up to be one of the easiest wins in election history, yet she and the DNC in all of their wisdom were unable to do it. In terms of pure vote percentage, by the way, Kerry and Gore did better.

Worst Democratic candidate since Walter Mondale. Lost the election and deserved said loss.

Overrated establishment.

Hate to break it to you but Bernie is part of the establishment too.

incumbent ≠ establishment
133  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How will Democrats shed the elitist image in time for 2020? on: November 10, 2016, 10:48:51 pm
Here's one short guideline to start with that the Democrats should (likely never will) adapt to.

Dems should immediately fire everyone at the DNC and shed all ties to the establishment wing.
Appoint a Tulsi Gabbard, Bernie Sanders or Keith Ellison to head the DNC.
Stop taking money from the f-ing banks and major corps - else Dems will not be trusted.
Embrace and actively fight alongside the working class, for industrial unions, etc.
Most critically, they need to actively resist every policy put forward by Trump. No compromise.
134  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Please stop overreacting on: November 10, 2016, 10:35:45 pm
If the DNC conducts a hard-reset and embraces, rather than shuns, the progressive wing, the Democrats will make gains in 2018. That is the silver lining. That and, should incumbents quit bowing their heads, the Senate filibuster.
135  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Would Hillary have won if she'd embraced TPP and the benefits of free trade? on: November 10, 2016, 10:18:15 pm
This was the most blatantly pro-protectionist election in decades.
136  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: 2020 Democratic primaries (DEMOCRATS ONLY) on: November 10, 2016, 07:51:36 pm
Sanders deserves it after this election, though he may prove to be more of a Goldwater-like figure than a Reagan-like one. Warren would win and do so rather easily, Harris perhaps - nobody else on that list has a chance in hell to win, least of all Cory "Hillary Clinton" Booker.
137  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Duterte + Brexit + Donald Trump on: November 09, 2016, 11:40:53 pm
The Global Rise of the Faux-Populist Right. It's happening.
138  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Opinion of Clinton appealing to nevertrumpers, suburban, educated whites? on: November 09, 2016, 11:38:03 pm
She normalized Republicans when she implied there are some worthy of being called "sensible."

Of anything, this served to benefit GOP wins at the local and state level, and perhaps in Congress.
139  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Massive anti-Trump protests going on in NYC and Chicago on: November 09, 2016, 11:12:11 pm
When Trump begins implementing policies, he will be met with deep resistance.

Are you suggesting violent resistance? Because I hate to tell you this, but my side has the guns and provides most of the troops for the military, so......

uh, no? Resistance as in a political front/movement. I'm not talking about violence.
140  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: 2020 Democratic Primary: Wide Open(NON-REPUBLICAN VOTERS ONLY) on: November 09, 2016, 11:08:37 pm
Warren could do it. Brown perhaps. Harris maybe.
Nobody from the Obama/Clinton echelon will win 2020. No Castro, no Booker, definitely no Cuomo.
141  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Predict President Trump's approval rating one year from now on: November 09, 2016, 11:00:11 pm
44% Approval barring economic/policy disaster or backlash.
142  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Do you feel bad for Hillary Clinton? on: November 09, 2016, 10:58:21 pm
lol no
143  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Massive anti-Trump protests going on in NYC and Chicago on: November 09, 2016, 10:51:29 pm
Brilliant. The status quo is shattered, unity ain't around the corner.
Willing to bet this is a preview of what is to come.
When Trump begins implementing policies, he will be met with deep resistance.
144  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Did Johnson cost Hillary the election? on: November 09, 2016, 09:27:27 pm
If anything, Trump probably would have won by more if Johnson was not there.

!!THIS!!
145  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Did Colin Kaepernick cost Hillary the election? on: November 09, 2016, 09:26:37 pm
No (not an idiot)
146  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sanders would have won on: November 09, 2016, 09:25:14 pm
Yes. By a yuge margin.
147  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: When did you realize that it was almost certain that Trump would win? on: November 09, 2016, 08:27:06 pm
When Virginia and Minnesota looked competitive.
148  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How do you feel right now ? on: November 09, 2016, 08:25:36 pm
Absolutely horrified.

Time for us to look ridiculous in four years!
I say either Trump Part Deux or Pence/Cotton.
