Hillary running again would demonstrate such a complete lack of self-awareness and public opinion to completely disqualify her for Presidency.

Believe it or not, it is actually possible for the public to be wrong.

I find it interesting that the NDP might be optimistic enough to think Canadians will elect a brown guy Prime Minister.

Are we not supposed to say that? I have no faith in our people whatsoever.

Obviously Hillary.

We're allowed to say this again?

About time.

Not sure. My apartment always smells like burnt toast, so it's hard to distinguish.

Well, that's because she's a woman and a lot of voters (particularly working class voters) don't look at female politicians the same way they look at male ones.

But we're not allowed to say this.

For your consideration.

Still not sure what is so threatening about admitting that some sexism exists, but of course all these responses are to be expected. Roll Eyes

I don't doubt that a President Hillary Clinton would have gotten something better passed in 2009 with the same Congress, but what can you do? She's a feminazi shill, and always will be!

Roll Eyes

F-ckers. The salt will never run out.

That culturally conservative white working-class voters actually find meaning in arguments about "the millionaires and billionaires." Or, in other words, that populism-without-scapegoating-the-Other can actually resonate.
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who will be the Jeb Bush of the Democrats? on: March 01, 2017, 12:04:51 pm
Hillary Clinton won a majority of Democratic primary voters in two elections, so actually did have a hefty, enthusiastic coalition in her party. She won the nomination. She won the national popular vote by 3 million. She has become an inspirational feminist icon to a sizeable group of voters (none of whom are represented here, evidently Roll Eyes). She is no Jeb Bush.

Progressive Cosmopolitan

Internationalist in outlook, Progressive Cosmopolitans embrace multiculturalism and are politically engaged. They are very motivated by social issues such as climate action and the treatment of asylum seekers. While likely to be thought of as 'left-wing', they differ from Activist Egalitarians by being less strongly concerned with the redistribution of wealth. They relish change and don't seek a return to the Australia of years gone by.

wow what a question lol then lets be fair if media weren't so bias trump would win in landslide.

Hate to break it to you, but it's reality that's biased—against objectively incorrect choices.

Toodles!

Perhaps. Lord knows she deserves it.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will Ohio flip if Coal Ind/ Manufacturing doesn't improve under Trump? on: February 25, 2017, 02:44:34 pm
I don't think so.  I don't think it's trending R because of jobs.  I think it's culturally a Republican state.

There was some article from a tech company exec who went to middle America and interviewed people anonymously on why they voted for Trump and found that it was surprisingly not because of job related reasons.  Even those who said building the wall was a huge factor commonly said it was not for economic reasons but to "preserve U.S. culture." 

That said, Ohio wasn't a blowout, so it possibly could help at the margins, but I don't see it flipping over this issue alone.
^This is what I fear if this is a racism/"whitelash" issue then we are screwed because the dems can't/shouldn't relate to that

Racism/whitelash? From a large chunk of voters who voted for Obama twice?

1. Stop looking at anecdotal stuff
2. Everything I've seen in Ohio is economy, folks who feel like the economy may have improved under Obama but it didn't get better in their town
3. It was a blow out in Ohio, largest margin of victory since 1988

Believe it or not, it could actually be easier for a somewhat racist white guy to vote for a black president than to vote for a candidate who encourages them to ask deep, introspective, and uncomfortable questions of themselves.

Welp, this thread is certainly a beautiful demonstration of gender's role in politics. Smiley

Bernie Sanders. The Democrats need to nominate a true progressive, not someone of his ilk. I'll vote Green in protest because I can be a special little snowflake too.

He has discovered what brand of politics is currently cool and is now playing the game masterfully.

Polnut would have stayed had things turned out differently. But you can hardly blame him for leaving; it's almost insufferable now. Mainstream politics has embraced factlessness, so the senseless moron brigade is out in force, feeling redeemed, legitimized, and proud. The disgusting and deliberate political incorrectness (Roll Eyes) is just the rotten icing on the cake.

And, on the other sides, smug elitist pricks like yourself who don't even pretend to give a crap about anyone outside the Bubble.

Indeed. When it's so obvious that my side is right and their side is wrong, not to mention that their wrongness will have considerably more negative repercussions for [already-vulnerable] people than my rightness, it's hard to have much respect. Smiley

She seems to be fighting the good fight on identity issues, at the very least. The fact that she is so bullied only makes me even more eager to support her. FF.
