2. I'm happy to see Lawrence host, but geebus that seems late for a town hall (less for me in MT zone)

 

I'll plan to watch, though. Kamala is very inspiring.

3. preaching to the choir is great and all

 

But she'd have a much greater impact if she had the courage to go into the Fox's den as well. And have eyes on her and her platform that would otherwise never hear her own words in her own context.

6. No...

 

and it's got nothing to do with courage. It's about not legitimizing a hate network.

She's not chasing after the racist Trump-voter demographic.

8. Cutting ones nose off to spite Fox News' face is counter productive

 

It has a lot to do with courage, both to face the aggressive questioning by Fox news hosts, and to face the backlash she'd get from some of the leadership in her own party, which is obviously frowning at the idea following up on their rejection of Fox debate hosting.

No, its not to change any minds of the hopelessly deplorable. But you don't think there are any "never Trumpers" left, or Independents, or new voters out there that may for once in their life actually hear a well spoken candidate like Harris get her full message out without it being edited and taken out of context. That that is a useless endeavour? Did you forget that Hillary only needed 80,000 votes in the Rust Belt? These States went Democratic during Obama's term, and have a more recent history as Democratic states. That means enough can be persuaded to switch back.

You may not have Fox News on all day, but many just put it on knowing how it is "the most watched" news network with the shiniest graphics and hottest news bimbos. And are not hard core racist sexist Trump lovers. Its just that they have been conditioned to think all other stations are "fake news" and only watch Fox. So if they hear truth coming from that network, it can only be a good thing.

Legitimizing it would be to stay away, proving to many Fox zombies that they are afraid to come on and face the "real truth".

13. Anyone who wants to hear

 

Can do so by turning the channel to the town halls, and to the debates once they start. It's really pretty easy to do. If they are the crowd that "only" watch fox, and won't believe anything they hear from other sources, well they are not going to listen to the "truth" anyway.

Now I think all our candidates should be reaching out to the 46% who just didn't bother to vote in 2016, for one reason or another. I think many of them can be reached and our candidates can get the message to them, and there would be more of them who would "listen" than there would be if they went on fox.

17. I guess Elizabeth Warren is a coward too, then.

 

Or is that only reserved for "well spoken" candidates like Kamala Harris?

9. I like listening to her speak. She's direct and sincere... but thoughtful and respectful.

 

I like listening to her speak. She's direct and sincere... but thoughtful and respectful.

She's the kind of person who I think would do a good job as POTUS because she has the demeanor (other candidates are VERY lacking in that area.)

I like that she doesn't talk with her arms. It's very distracting (and completely unnecessary) for ANYONE to bounce their entire arms to the beat of every syllable they utter. I'm a voter, I'm here to listen... I'm NOT an orchestra who needs a conductor.

I like her sense of style too. Very sensible, understated. She knows how to dress her age and act her age, she knows what type of clothes and makeup and hairstyle is flattering to her face and figure.

She's someone who looks like she would take seriously EVERY and ALL aspects of the role of POTUS. I'd be very proud to have her representing our nation on the world stage. She would also be strong enough and smart enough to be able to effectively deal with our adversaries WITHOUT feeling the need to resort to boisterous threats and juvenile gesticulations.

She actually LISTENS to others, and she THINKS before she speaks. She's well-read and thoroughly experienced with the topics and issues that matter most to the American voters.

Biden would be very fortunate to have Harris serving with him as Vice President... if that's how it all turns out.
