Would legendary 21st century philosopher and emeritus professor at Princeton University Dr. Cornel West be a good presidential candidate in 2020 as a Green Party candidate? He could appeal to some disaffected liberals in the Democratic Party, could he? He would be 67 years old in 2020.

How seriously would he be taken in a Democratic Primary and a General Election against #45? He's been popping up more and more on Colbert's show and the other night made a comment about how he's getting antsy and needs a job.

Discuss with maps and pretty colors

La La Land definitely shouldn't have beaten Moana for Best Original Song. They denied Lin Manuel-Miranda of his EGOT 😢
9  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: President Trump's First Address to Congress **live commentary thread** on: March 01, 2017, 08:08:36 am
And of course the media is running with a "New, Presidential Trump!" narrative because he stuck to a TelePrompTer. Like seriously? We're still holding him to such a low standard? It's like putting a dog on stage and applauding because he didn't crap himself.
10  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Your feelings on Perez as DNC Chair, Ellison as Deputy Chair? on: February 25, 2017, 04:34:27 pm
Democrat - Burn'em all!

Wait. Wait. You would rather have a Neoliberal Fascist as America's President who isn't willing to change than a somewhat moderate but who is willing to change ?

For s sake Perez isn't a moderate. Stop feeding their alternative reality narrative.
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: PEREZ 213.5 / ELLISON 200, going to second ballot on: February 25, 2017, 02:27:29 pm
Wtf is up with all the hate for Perez? DNC Chair isn't a policy figure. And even if it was, he's just as progressive as Ellison.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: A New Day: 2004 And On on: February 22, 2017, 03:17:07 am
Should I continue this? Looking back my writing was... iffy. I could probably do a good deal better now.
13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: Ray Buckley drops out, endorses Ellison on: February 21, 2017, 01:00:29 pm

Thank goodness. Lewis was one of the major players in the Clinton wing during the primaries, so his endorsement of Ellison should help a lot

I doubt it moves many Clinton people. They'll probably just see it as Lewis endorsing the black candidate.

15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Official Trump 1.0 Approval Ratings Thread on: February 19, 2017, 03:05:55 pm
I think that Iowa poll will show something like -7 for Trump. A lot of voters there didn't really like Trump, but rather just hated Clinton.

Not bad.

Apparently Obama was even more unpopular in November at -9 (43/52).

I love Claire McCaskill, but she needs to retire and let Kander save this seat for the Democrats.
17  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump Cabinet confirmation hearings **live commentary thread** on: February 16, 2017, 01:04:12 pm
It's Alexander Acosta for Labor.

Bradd Jaffy ‏@BraddJaffy  5m5 minutes ago
NBC News confirms President Trump will announce Alexander Acosta as his pick for Labor Secretary


This is Trump's first Latino pick.

Much better choice than Puzder. Looking at his Wikipedia page, he made a big push of combating white collar crime during the 00's as the U.S. Attorney for Southern District of Florida. Also emphasized health-care fraud prosecutions. Finally he was the main prosecutor against Jack Abramoff.

Yeah by all accounts he seems like the best Trump Cabinet appointee yet (aside from maybe the VA and DoD).
18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: Perez campaign claims to have 180 of 224 votes to win on: February 14, 2017, 09:57:34 pm
Since this is basically a (dumb) 2016 primary proxi-war, can someone please explain to me how tf theDNC supposedly rigged the primary for Clinton?

Still holding out hope that Clooney challenges her. He can self-fund (though he probably wouldn't have to) and has nothing to lose.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: If you were to tell yourself 5 years ago who you supported last year... on: February 12, 2017, 01:34:26 am
I started supporting Hillary immediately after the election in 2012 was called for Obama so I wouldn't be surprised at all
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump Cabinet confirmation hearings **live commentary thread** on: February 10, 2017, 02:12:55 am
Gross 51-47

Who tf didn't vote aside from Sessions
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: Keith Ellison, Pete Buttigieg, Tom Perez big names in race on: February 07, 2017, 05:43:05 pm

Why exactly should I care about the opinion of a disgraced AG turned who has now entered the private sector, as a lawyer to defend the fraudulent banks that he refused to prosecute?

Haven't you answered your own question? The Holder endorsement is extremely damning. Not that we needed more signs of whom Perez is looking to represent.

You dark red avatars are some insufferable mfs
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Democrats' Ronald Reagan on: February 01, 2017, 01:58:49 am
There already was one: Barack Obama.

If anything I remember him being called the Ronald Reagan of the left when he ran in 2008. How true those commentators were.


24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: MDSEN 2018- Who Runs? on: January 30, 2017, 12:59:57 pm
The Dems really need to get these geriatrics to retire, this is why their bench is so pitiful. Instead of Feinstein in CA we could have John Chiang or Xavier Becerra in MD Heather Mizeur, Donna Edwards, Marilyn Mosby.

Maybe he'll get the Republicans to stop running the country into the ground like he got those white kids to stop running in his lobby.
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: WV-Sen: Jenkins running on: January 30, 2017, 07:34:28 am
I think Trump saves Manchin's ass in this race. He might not endorse him, but he'll speak very growling of Manchin to the press which'll go a long way inn WV.
