Yes, but it's a reason why I am a hard core centrist. Purists on both sides are crazed. I am beholden to no one. I speak the truth. I offend both sides and I am so proud.

Sure. He lost in a humiliating fashion last year, but hey, if Rick Santorum can come back from a landslide loss and become a viable Presidential candidate, then so can Feingold. That being said, I don't see another run for elected office in his future.

Of all these, Warren is the best, though she is more anti-gun than I would like. Hopefully Bernie runs.

On Friday, she has been awarded the Grand Decoration of Honour in Gold with Sash for Services to the Republic of Austria - which is also not a bad thing to add to your CV.

Only on Atlas do they say Elizabeth Warren is not far left.

Elizabeth Warren is a centre-left liberal by any objective measure.

As a free-market conservative and one who values high IQ and technical expertise, Zuckerberg appeals to me. But I am also staunchly anti-illegal immigration, anti-radical Islam, and anti-political correctness and SJW.

In my opinion:

Democratic: Ron Wyden/Elizabeth Warren. It obviously unites the various branches of the Democratic Party while attracting swing voters.
Republican: Paul Ryan/Nikki Haley. This is assuming Ryan resigns the Speakership in October of 2017 and resigns his House seat. Haley's newfound ties to Trump would keep his supporters willing to vote for the ticket.

-Neither of these are the best tickets. Both Ryan and Haley are horrible general election candidates. Wyden/Warren is OK, but a tad too far-left. And it's important to have an energetic Black guy at the top of the Dem ticket to keep Black youth turnout at 2012 levels.

Neither Wyden nor Warren are anywhere near "far-left".

One of the better posters during this catastrophe, especially with his criticism of the Bernie movement that is sinking the Democratic Party down the drain.

I was under the impression that Obama presided over humiliating midterm losses and horrific defeats in the state legislatures. Frankly if Bernie wants to destroy the Democratic Party then he arrived a little too late to the, er, party.

Anyway, Lief is a FF for being interesting and high energy, which is more than can be said for most Dem establishment-supporting types.

Yeah, I love how neoliberal Democrats whose control over the party has led to its complete obliteration and the rise of a quasi-fascist narcissistic buffoon are adamant that letting anyone else take the reins would spell its doom. Roll Eyes
Let it go.

Seriously? Antonio (!) is the one who needs to "let it go" here?

The idea that Bernie Sanders would have beaten Donald Trump is the same as the idea that Ted Cruz and so many other far-right nuts peddle that Dole, McCain, and Romney all lost because they were too "moderate."

That's an oversimplification of the political spectrum (to say the least), but yes, had someone like, say, Palin,  been nominated in 2012, they'd likely have won against Obama, IMO. They really blew an election they should have won by nominating Romney.

Stop glorifying the candidacy of someone probably incapable of actually doing the job.

...what the hell does this even mean? So not being a technocratic wonk like Clinton = being unfit for office? That's ridiculous.

So i guess all the liberals who said Trump was going to destroy democracy decided to self fulfill their prophecy?

The GOP already destroyed democracy in America years ago via voter suppression laws. If the 2016 election was conducted fairly, you'd have a point, but, alas, that's simply not the case. America is functionally an illiberal democracy at this point and it's election results - particularly in very close elections like this one - should always be taken with (at least) a grain of salt.
