Perriello was one of the few Democrats that went down actually fighting in 2010 and never hid his support for President Obama. For that reason alone he has my support.

He probably wouldn't have won Michigan or Pennsylvania, but he would've won Titanium R Wisconsin by at least 10%, since Trump's landslide 0.8% win is the new Republican floor in Wisconsin, and that floor is rising faster than college tuition.

I can't tell if this is sarcasm or no

Harris has no major legislative experience. She got nothing done. She is a 1 time Senator. On what basis will she run? Being AG of CA? She is soft on TPP!

Another CA elite with identity politics? Good luck trying that in WI.

She hasn't even been sworn in yet...

8  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: Ellison endorsed by many Democrats, Tom Perez to declare run on: December 25, 2016, 02:14:03 pm
I'm starting to lose the large amount of respect I have for Perez. If the Democrats want to keep clinging to TPP and their establishment party machines then they can forget about winning back the presidency in 2020.

Democrats aren't "clinging to TPP". Perez is still Obama's Secretary of Labor, and as such had to promote Obama's policies. That doesn't mean he supports TPP himself. It's the same people that can't seem to grasp this simple truth that also fail to understand that the DNC isn't some King of the Democrats that lays out policy on national tv.

Watch this, and if you still support Perez after watching it, you're no progressive:

What a pathetic, stupid, little man.

He serves at the pleasure of the President. And the President supports TPP. Get over it

Toby Cosgrove is the absolute best person possible for the VA. He turned down the position once before though, so I doubt he'd accept now.

After looking into him, I have to say I agree.

Perez vs. Ellison is a very hard choice for me. I like them both.

I guess it will come down to who I think has the best strategy for the party. I don't care about political leanings, that's not the DNC's role, and if Ellison tries to make it about that I would probably support Perez.

I have to disagree on your vision of the DNC's "role". I think Ellison is the only one in the race for the chairmanship that actually has a vision for a policy agenda, and I think it's better that the Democrats envision the DNC chair as less of a fundraising, behind-the-scenes role than a "face-of-the-party" role. Nothing against Perez, I think he's a great Secretary who's got a decent career ahead of him, but I frankly don't see a new vision for the party that the Democrats desperately need, and I'd much rather he run for Maryland Governor in 2018 or 2022 than he waste his time as DNC Chair.

But... that's literally what the DNC Chair's job is. Congressional Democrats are supposed to focus on policy.

NO It is not. That is what Debbie was - A terrific fundraiser. And Clinton outraised & outspend Trump too.

And what did it do - Jack sh**. This kind of experiment has been tried & has failed big. It is time to move on from this archaic thinking!

It's not archaic thinking, it's the literal job description. The job of the DNC Chair is to focus on fundraising and building the party apparatus. It's mechanics, not "vision".

16  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Should political experience be required to run for President? on: December 12, 2016, 03:45:21 pm
No. Besides the age and nationality requirement, there should be no other limit. The people should be able to elect anyone they want. The Trumpster, for sure, is a bad example, but we had other presidents without political experience like Eisenhower whose presidency wasnít bad. On the other hand, political experience alone doesnít prevent bad policies or problematic characters. Also: what counts as experience? Congress, Cabinet and Governors only? And how many years? Consecutive years? These questions are not to answer in a consensus.

Quote
Retired Marine General John Kelly has emerged as the top contender to lead President-elect Donald Trumpís Department of Homeland Security, according to three sources close to the transition.


Whew. Much better than Kobach.

I see Pence's fingerprints over some of these picks...

Much better only in that Kobach is literally the worst possible choice for any high office regarding Hispanics. Kelly is still an old-timey right-winger.

The possibilities I can think of are Tulsi Gabbard, Nina Turner, and Kshama Sawant.
Quite ironic that I couldn't think of any white males despite the claim of Bernie supporters being all white males.
Nina Turner needs to crawl back under the rock in Ohio she came from.

20  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Corker's replacement if he becomes Secretary of State on: November 27, 2016, 06:22:52 pm
Bill Frist, Randy McNally, and Beth Harwell are the three most likely nominees.
Bill Frist? Would he consider running again if Haslam appoints him? Would Haslam himself run?
I could see Frist as a "placeholder" till an election for the seat happens.
Would Frist want to be a Senator again?
If he does, that means one more vote to keep Obamacare.

Yes, it was good...though Johnny Depp as Grindlewald was a little awkward.
It was as fantastic, and Johnny Depp was at worst fine, they just need to slightly de-age his character.

Populism and identity politics are both HP . Fiscal and economic conservatives are FF

Where are those fiscal and economic conservatives? I can only think of a couple off the top of my head. Most conservatives in power at the moment are all about gutting services, increasing defense spending, and gutting the only reliable source of government revenue (taxation) in favor of corporations and big businesses. That is practically the opposite of fiscal conservatism or any fiscally responsible position for that matter.

John Kasich, Marco Rubio,Rand Paul

25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Keith Ellison, Howard Dean offered as possible DNC chairs on: November 16, 2016, 07:03:40 pm
Ellison has the endorsement of  the state chairmen in Wisconsin, Hawaii, Nebraska, and his home state of Minnesota. Also Elizabeth Warren recently formally endorsed Ellison.

This actually matters, as state chairman vote and were suppose to be heavily behind Dean

I think the state chairmen said they planned to vote as a bloc, and Dean has the support of far more of the state parties.
