Here is one thing of which you can be SURE

The Clinton campaign, which eyes these hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic supporters with great envy, has a complete and accurate copy of Bernie entire database. The breach served two purposes: 1) An obvious trap for another campaign, and 2) to leave a back door open for the Clinton campaign. That is the sign of a truly Rovian campaign; when one act of skulduggery meets multiple objectives.

Bernie "using" the Democrat label. Many think he's just an imposter a la Trump. However, there's a new team/s in town and the rigid two parties are starting to crack.

I'm going to guess (also hope) this does not end well for The Establishment...who had the tools at their behest.

and that means it's probably happened just as you infer. Stupidity is the hallmark of her campaign, and tone-deafness is its most obvious failing.

Bernie's campaign to circumvent the DNC's info altogether by building a database of their own, state by state? Even if the DNC would again allow access, I don't really trust them anyway.

Yes, I know that this would be time consuming, but Bernie has no shortage of volunteers who want to help. And that help would include tech savvy millennials. The info can be obtained by Secretary of State voter registration bases in each state, and are usually available to candidates for little or no cost, I think. It would just be a matter of sorting out the info and creating Bernie's own files.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but it is my understanding that the DNC's database is registered Dems only. If this is indeed the case, wouldn't it be helpful to also have unenrolled/independent (and/or) green party voters on the lists too? We know for a fact that Bernie is polling very well with independents, so wouldn't it be a good idea to focus GOTV efforts on them as well?

Additionally, the above-mentioned demographic(s) are likely to not be as phone call weary, as registered Dems. Especially in early primary states where they get calls all of the time for polling as well as GOTV efforts from all 3 campaigns.

What do you guys think? Is this too overly ambitious, given the short window of time that we have before Iowa, NH and South Carolina? Do you think it could be done?

Maybe this is a dumb and/or pie-in-the-sky idea, but I'm just kind of brainstorming (fwiw) here...

to federal court to make the DNC to allow them access to their own info. I cant believe what the
Clinton people are trying to pull here. Just amazing. Hillary's people will wish they never tried to pull this kind of crap.

Win it in the trenches presenting your ideas to the voters not by following Karl Rove's footsteps...

Why is the DNC only going after Bernie since the fire wall issue all could see. Also they keep saying that Bernie is not a Democrat. I'm angry.
