Last Night As I Listened To The Post Debate Commentary....

on MSNBC - the talking heads were critical of Romney for injecting himself into the fray and making an issue out of Trump's tax reports being made public.

Someone made the comment that maybe Romney might be the consensus candidate at a brokered Repug convention when someone else said - No - Romney was a loser and Parties don't put losers up again.

If that be the case - Hillary was a loser as well. Obama took her down in the race where she was again supposedly the 'presumptive nominee'. How is is that Hillary gets a second chance at the brass ring when she blew it the first time?

She had proven herself the last time out as being a loser. Why is the party taking a chance on her again?

There is too much as stake in 2016. Even more now with Scalia's passing. I'm worried that this will work against the Dem Party. I just don't get it.

2. in modern history

Johnson, Nixon, Reagan and Bush were all elected after earlier, failed campaigns.

Your premise is false.

3. Well, Johnson replaced JFK, so I suppose that shouldn't count. But my point stands.

But you sound like Trump calling people "losers".

6. Democracy?

 

"How is is that Hillary gets a second chance at the brass ring when she blew it the first time?"

I also don't think she blew it the first time. She went up against what will go down as one of the greatest campaigns in history.

Hasn't Sanders lost more elections than Clinton has been in? Didn't he then return to run for those same seats again? Do you think Sanders deserved those "brass rings" considering how many times he blew it?

This kind of removes all doubt as to who the talking heads are talking to.

7. Next Wednesday will tell the real story for

 

the Rethugs. The notion of a Brokered Convention will surface with banter about Bush or Romney. The Money People are nervous and plain and simple do not want Trump or Cruz.

8. Because our party has moved waaaaaay to the right of where it began.

I don't know what she's doing in this race. If she gave two shits about America she'd shake Bernie's hand, thank him, and step back and watch how it's supposed to be done.

It's supposed to be for the people; not for the corporations. Anyone who has a problem with that doesn't belong in the Democratic party.

9. Why?

I think the difference is Hillary lost the primary to PBO, she didn't lose a general election contest.

10. There is a difference between a general election

and a primary.
