Just the slightest poke by Bernie and O'Malley and Hillary was unable to handle herself. She was defensive and unconvincing. She also made what I believe to be a major gaffe, tying her support of Wall Street to 9/11. Maybe there's something in the water in NY that makes everyone tie 9/11 to all their thoughts and actions.
Her performance last night did nothing to change my view that she is unelectable. In fact, it proved that she would be a disaster for the progressive cause.
Just shoot me.

The emails also provide crucial context for understanding CAPs controversial decision to host an event next week for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. That event, billed by CAP as A Conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, will feature CAP President Neera Tanden and Netanyahu together in a Q&A session as they explore ways to strengthen the partnership between Israel and the United States. That a group whose core mission is loyalty to the White House and the Democratic Party would roll out the red carpet for a hostile Obama nemesis is bizarre, for reasons the Huffington Post laid out when it reported on the controversy provoked by CAPs invitation.
The emails, provided to The Intercept by a source authorized to receive them, are particularly illuminating about the actions of Tanden (right), a stalwart Clinton loyalist as well as a former Obama White House official. They show Tanden and key aides engaging in extensive efforts of accommodation in response to AIPACs and Lewis vehement complaints that CAP is allowing its writers to be anti-Israel. Other emails show Tanden arguing that Libyans should be forced to turn over large portions of their oil revenues to repay the U.S. for the costs incurred in bombing Libya, on the grounds that Americans will support future wars only if they see that the countries attacked by the U.S. pay for the invasions.

Sometimes a person dies and the news of it makes me breathe a sigh of relief that a devil incarnate has exited the building.
I bring you news of the death of Ahmed Chalabi!
Ahmed Chalabi, Chief Peddler of False Iraq WMD Intelligence, Dies at 71
Iraqi politician Ahmed Chalabi, who played a key role in pushing for the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, has died at the age of 71. Chalabi was the former head of the Iraqi National Congress, a CIA-funded Iraqi exile group that helped drum up pre-war claims that Saddam Hussein was developing weapons of mass destruction and had links to al-Qaeda. Chalabi provided bogus intelligence to the Bush administration, U.S. lawmakers and journalists.
Democracy Now! closely covered the rise and fall of Chalabi over the past 15 years.
