Do Democrats have anyone that could make a go at the seat, sans one of the Landrieus?

Meddling in primaries is how the GOP ended up with FDR. It can backfire.

It's also a pretty underhanded and shameful thing to do if you ask me. I wonder how Huff Post would feel about the GOP elevating Bernie Sanders to the Dem nomination so they could beat him.
Democrats aren't dumb enough to give the nod to Bernie though just because he's the most liberal, as you can see from his inability to break past around 30% in the polls outside of his backyard in New Hampshire.

This man is way late to the Party. As of now, it appears the nominee will either be Trump, Kasich, Rubio, or Cruz (in that order). In August, I would have said it would be Walker, Bush, Kasich, or Trump (in that order). Of course Trump could be the nominee.

Barack Obama Campaign Kick-Off Speech
"May I introduce to you, the next President of the United States of America, my husband, Senator Barack Obama!"

"Thank you! Thank you all so much. But let me begin by saying thanks to all you who've traveled, from far and wide, to brave the cold today.

We all made this journey for a reason. It's very humbling, but in my heart I know you didn't come here just for me, you came here because you believe in what this country can be. In the face of war, you believe there can be peace. In the face of despair, you believe there can be hope. In the face of a politics that's shut you out, that's told you to settle, that's divided us for too long, you believe we can be one people, reaching for what's possible, building that more perfect union."

"Now yes, I do recognize there is a certain presumptuousness -- a certain audacity -- to this announcement. I know I haven't spent a lot of time learning the ways of Washington. But I've been there long enough to know that the ways of Washington must change.

The genius of our founders is that they designed a system of government that can be changed. And we should take heart, because we've changed this country before. In the face of tyranny, a band of patriots brought an Empire to its knees. In the face of secession, we unified a nation and set the captives free. In the face of Depression, we put people back to work and lifted millions out of poverty. We welcomed immigrants to our shores, we opened railroads to the west, we landed a man on the moon, and we heard a King's call to let justice roll down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.

Each and every time, a new generation has risen up and done what's needed to be done. Today we are called once more -- and it is time for our generation to answer that call."
"That is why this campaign can't only be about me. It must be about us -- it must be about what we can do together. This campaign must be the occasion, the vehicle, of your hopes, and your dreams. It will take your time, your energy, and your advice -- to push us forward when we're doing right, and to let us know when we're not. This campaign has to be about reclaiming the meaning of citizenship, restoring our sense of common purpose, and realizing that few obstacles can withstand the power of millions of voices calling for change."

"That is our purpose here today.

That's why I'm in this race.

Not just to hold an office, but to gather with you to transform a nation.

I want to win that next battle -- for justice and opportunity.

I want to win that next battle -- for better schools, and better jobs, and health care for all."

"I want us to take up the unfinished business of perfecting our union, and building a better America.
And if you will join me in this improbable quest, if you feel destiny calling, and see as I see, a future of endless possibility stretching before us; if you sense, as I sense, that the time is now to shake off our slumber, and slough off our fear, and make good on the debt we owe past and future generations, then I'm ready to take up the cause, and march with you, and work with you. Together, starting today, let us finish the work that needs to be done, and usher in a new birth of freedom on this Earth.

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the United States of America.

Yeah and I'm pretty sure most red avatars don't have much of a problem with Scott anyway. Yeah he's ultra conservative but he seems to avoid doing or saying crazy things.

I feel like Justin Amash would be a good pick for Cruz. He doesn't subscribe to conventional political wisdom so I think doubling down in his conservative cred and youth would be the route his campaign takes.

11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: DEMOCRAT PRIMARY VOTERS ONLY: post-debate nomination poll on: November 15, 2015, 02:26:19 am
I've found Bernie Sanders to be an actual fighter for the people and has had good, consistent values, no matter what office he ran for, from Mayor to Senator to President. His support of universal health care and debt free college really speak to me, and I find that he has been not only a more effective Senator than Hillary Clinton, but he would be a more effective President.


Just in numbers, I believe the # of amendments passed by Sanders compared to Clinton was 200something to 90something. Of course that's not even including how substantive they are, but I'm just trying to find my source of that information.
Well considering the fact that he's been in Congress for double the amount of time as Clinton, it kinda makes sense for him to have double the amount of amendments.

If they're really panicking this hard then their best bet is to coalesce around Rubio as the Establishment candidate.

The funny thing is, it'll probably backfire as a move like that would give Carson, Trump, Cruz and the rest of the field a candidate to all train their fire on.

So it's really a lose-lose situation for Establishment Republicans.

So much for Rubios big momentum...

This as high as Rubio has been with Morning Consult. Rubio had been quite flat at 6% since the summer in this poll. This is a tick up.

He's at 7%
15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: 7th-grader says Texas teacher FORCED students to deny God is real or fail on: November 07, 2015, 08:45:47 pm
NEWS: A middle school student in Katy, Texas, claimed a teacher "asked the class to deny God exists," as covered in a 28 October 2015 Fox News segment on the controversy involving Katy Independent School District in Texas:

'Is God real' If you say yes to that question, you fail the test ... that is exactly what happened [in Katy, where students were instructed] to label God as fact, assertion, or opinion.

On 27 October 2015, Houston-area television station KHOU reported a West Memorial Junior High School teacher issued an assignment that involved classifying a number of statements as factual claims, commonplace assertions, or opinions. The statement "There is a God" was among the items students were instructed to correctly categorize under one of those three options, and one student claimed she was forced by the teacher to acknowledge that the existence of God was not a fact (i.e., to disclaim that God is "real"):



And the problem is?

Public schools are supposed to remain neutral on religious issues.
Which is what they did.

Literally telling a student "Deny god or you FAIL my class" is the exact opposite of neutrality.
Oh Wulfric. Wulfric Wulfric Wulfric, my dear boy. Try reading, it's quite a rewarding skill. Why, you could even give it a shot by trying it out on this very article.

Bernie just flip-flopped
His campaign is really getting sad and desperate.

Yeah he sees he's falling in the polls so he's changing his position on the emails thing in order to try and bring her numbers down. Bernie's brand of politics isn't cut out for a national campaign so he's becoming a #basicpolitician.

I said when this race started that it was a mistake for KY Dems to fall in line behind him. He's a bad candidate.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Whose supporters do you like more? on: November 03, 2015, 05:48:20 pm
The Hillary campaign has been waging war against Bernie supporters.

If this is a war, you guys are losing pretty bad.  Or, as someone else once put it:

"This is not a war any more than there's a war between men and maggots"

Well, yes we are being demonized quite a bit for daring to oppose Hillary. I've never seen a candidate's supporters demonized so much. The Hillary campaign plan seems to be to demonize us for several months and then expect us to vote for her in the general.

You've said demonized 3 times in this post and yet you've never explained how Hillary's campaign "demonized" Sanders supporters.

Articles saying that Bernie's supporters are his biggest problem. People claiming they'd vote for Bernie if it wasn't for his supporters. A bunch of bullsh**t like that.
Hillary's campaign doesn't write articles and if you think they've got some kind of deal going on with the he media, then you guys are more delusional than I thought. Sanders supporters, at least that I've seen on the Internet, are obnoxious, holier-than-thou assholes who can't believe anyone would ever question Bermie Sanders. I love the guy, but his supporters are annoying AF.

Cruz had just as much, if not more of a debate bounce as Rubio and yet the media is only reporting about his momentum?

Carson because he's more controllable
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Rubio's Response to His Attendence Record on: October 28, 2015, 11:25:11 pm
His answer to why he shouldn't resign his senate seat was that Obama, Kerry, and McCain didn't resign their's and the Sentinel endorsed them? No one thought to shut that down? Jeb called himself one of Rubio's constituents when he began asking him the question and could easily have won the exchange by saying that

"John McCain didn't represent us, and neither did Barack Obama and John Kerry. We don't care what they did in their states. Your job is to vote for our interests and your only concern is boosting your own ego by abandoning the job you were elected to do."
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What Kind of Person is Hillary? on: October 28, 2015, 12:22:25 am
Hillary is an opportunistic liar, the epitome of corporate greed and corruption. I am a socialist, and I refuse to let anymore corporatist, "moderate" Democrats into office. I would rather have a Republican President that would force the Democrats in Congress stand up for Democratic principles, than a Democratic leader who sells out to the elite and takes the Democratic Party with her. I voted for Romney in 2012, and still believe that if he had won, Democrats in Congress would have actually stood up for their principles, but because Obama is in office, and is himself a corporatist, they just follow the leader. A lot of my critique is based on her policies, but I do not think she is a good person who is running out of some genuine desire to fix this country. I think she is after power, and while I might be criticizing her from a different angle than Fox News and most Republicans, I think their concerns are valid. If Hillary is the nominee, I will not be voting for her. There are plenty of conservative Democrats I would consider voting for if I thought they were good people, but I don't see Hillary as being such.
And this gents is why I pray to God that Senator Sanders get steamrolled in the primaries. So BernBots who think as idiotically as this guy leave the party.

Why is Carson in the same position as Trump? Aside from that one CBS poll released this morning, he hasn't led in any national polls.

She's just angry because Clinton hasn't gone on their show. They've been pretty open that that's why they've been so critical of her.
