Does this platform committee thing seem fishy to you?

The committee crafted a lengthy platform and then on the final day in front of cameras, the Bernie folks come out with amendments on major issues that were already settled in the platform. Smells like a publicity stunt. There is no way that trade, healthcare, Israel/Palestine, and the minimum wage weren't discussed/hashed out before the final day.

The Platform Committee.

So this has flared up. My views is that the winning campaign should and will dictate the major tenets of the party's platform. When you win an election by 57% and those major tenets were major themes of the election, your positions are the ones voted for by a majority of democratic voters. Anyone looking for concessions should search elsewhere and find common ground.

The First Female Nominee should not have to share...

the same stage with the a man who doesn't concede and endorse her before the convention.

I'm seeing a lot of "suggestions" that Bernie's complacency to the threat that Trump poses should be accommodated. Hell no.

Hillary won and if Bernie won't acknowledge that before the convention, he can speak in the parking lot to his protestors. The last night of the convention is not about him or his "revolution".

Historic Campaigns....

Does anyone feel like that word has been thrown around a lot lately? What do I know though? We've never had an elderly white man gather a specific constituency and then go on to lose the nomination by double digits. Nope. Never happened. In 2008, John McCain also ran a historic general election campaign...

Jeff Weaver is about to come on WADR.

I wonder what he is going to say now.

Edit:
Eh, just previewing the speech that Bernie is going to give tonight. How far the mighty have fallen. He couldn't get arrested by the media now. Weaver has been defanged and it's glorious to see.

They are not currently lobbying super-delegates. He's trying to state that the Clinton campaign official joining the DNC is something that will make DWS useless at the DNC.

Sanders backed candidate Lucy Flores is facing a defeat at the hands of Hillary SD Ruben Kihuen!

AP, Decision desk, and Jon Ralston have called it.

#BREAKING AP has called Ruben Kihuen as the winner of the NV Democratic primary for U.S. Representative, District 4


If Sanders did one thing this election, he proved that the people could overcome the influence of money on their elections. He sure spent a lot trying.

Never one to miss an opportunity...

Is anyone watching the disgrace that is Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC?

Lord, she flat out accused her of setting up the email servers to avoid journalist and FOIA in a long rant that started with mentioning Hillary's mother.

For those saying that people won't go out to vote since the race has already been decided.

What do you think the other side has been doing since March. 15th?

(But seriously, if you are in a state that votes tomorrow, go vote.)



Exit poll: In tight CA race, absentee voters favor Hillary

http://capitolweekly.net/exit-poll-tight-race-absentee-voters-favor-hillary/

With just 48 hours until polls close in California, the crucial Democratic presidential contest between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders appears to be tightening. On the Republican side, the unopposed presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump is trying to show that he can consolidate the Republican electorate behind his candidacy.

Both make for interesting contests, albeit for completely different reasons.

The results of the online exit poll show Hillary leading in absentee votes by 12 points.

As a core part of the Capitol Weekly Absentee Voter Exit Poll, we sought to develop a tool that would allow us to survey enough of the early electorate to track support at the statewide level for each candidate and obtain similar results from each of California’s 53 congressional districts. We seek to give our readers a sense of which districts are solid for a candidate and where the battlegrounds lie, based solely on absentee voters who have returned ballots.


It could/will be close so vote! vote! vote!

It's Close in California: Clinton 49%, Sanders 47% NBC/WSJ/Marist

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/first-read/it-s-close-california-clinton-49-sanders-47-n584141

Hillary Clinton is clinging to a narrow two-point lead over Bernie Sanders in California ahead of the state's June 7 primary, according to results from a brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll.

Clinton gets support from 49 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in the state, while Sanders gets 47 percent, which is within the survey's margin of error.




The poll have Bernie winning Latinos so I'm a bit skeptical. Whatever the outcome though, there is no Bernie landslide in the cards (there never was). Hillary also leads in early voting.
