Not sure why no one has brought this up about Bernie.

Does Bernie Sanders even know how to play Golf????

He certainly won't fit in, just as They have been saying. Doesn't get along with anyone. Isn't a team player.

But what about Golf? How will he be spending his weekends?

Why hasn't this come up on the DU?

I'm looking for Joe Biden's Web site.

Googled, got a parody as top hit...then a facebook page.

I'm hoping the DU Biden supporters can direct me.

Wondering what his stand is on Medicare for All. Or Medicare for America.

New Yorker Magazine reporter Jane Mayer writes about Biden's Anita Hill thing.

Jane Mayer, together with Jill Abramson, authored the book "Strange Justice" in 1994 about the hearings. This New Yorker Magazine webpage article gives a description of the events and Biden's role in the case.

Sorry to read this about Biden's first day on the campaign trail.

"Mr. Biden spent his first evening as a presidential candidate at the Philadelphia-area home of David L. Cohen, a top executive at Comcast and a former political operative who is one of the Democratic Party’s leading fund-raisers.

Several prominent Pennsylvania politicians were listed as the event’s hosts, who also included Daniel J. Hilferty, the chief executive of the major health insurer Independence Health Group, the parent of Independence Blue Cross.

“It’s gauche to talk about money, so I’m not going to talk about money,” Mr. Cohen said at the fund-raiser, according to a recording of his remarks. “But all I’m going to say is that once again this group has produced an event that is off the charts, beyond anyone’s expectations.”"

Says a lot about where this 2020 race is heading.

As my old friend Kurt used to say: "So it goes."


Say what you want: Sanders has been working hard since 2015 to get his ideas out front.

His name recognition has increased steadily and his favorability polling has remained high for 4 years now. No other candidate has spent as much effort get his issues front and center and the results show as his issues are the ones the party is talking about. Medicare, Living wage, "Free" college, make the rich pay their share. More than half of the 20 or so candidates for the Democratic nomination were not on the national radar a year ago and many are still working on name recognition much less issues. Some are still formulating positions on the issues people are talking about.

Hopefully the early start to the campaigning will give them time to get their names and positions out there so we have the best chance to pick the best candidate to go up against Trump.

Here's some polling from last Sept, 2018.

I'd like to be a fly on the wall when Biden goes to ask Obama for an endorsement.

Would Obama do it for the primaries? Or say he's waiting till after the convention?

Are we all done talking about Bernie's taxes already?!!?

The build up was huuuuugggeee. Then nothing. WTF?
