    Re: O'Malley jumps into presidential race, offers progressive alternative to Clinton

    For the more conspiracy orientated:
    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has replaced fellow populist Elizabeth Warren, a senator from Massachusetts, as the leading contender to Clinton among Iowa Democrats, the poll finds. Sixteen percent of likely Democratic caucusgoers say Sanders would be their first choice for president. That's up from 5% in the January poll.
    Iowa Poll shows big Clinton lead, but also some worries

    Now we know why O'Malley really announced, to split the Sanders vote!

    Seriously though, it's probably the fact Warren was taken off the list finally, so guessing a good number of likely Warren voters switched to Sanders.

    Surprised by the favorability rating of Clinton and Obama though in that poll, would expected lower among democrats, and Sanders a bit higher (though lack of knowledge may attribute to that right now). To tie back to O'Malley looks like he'd have a chance, very early though but could pick up, up to 82%. Very unlikely to happen of course but hopeful is hopeful!

It is a sacred trust to be earned from the people of the United States, and exercised on behalf of the people of the United States."

    Wow....Attacking Big banks and ignoring the real " criminals " ? That's so original coming from a Democrat.

    The hard truth of our shared reality is this: Unemployment in many American cities and in many small towns across the United States is higher now than it was eight years ago. Conditions of extreme and growing poverty create conditions for extreme violence. We have work to do.

    Lol.....I bet his plan is going to have something to do with " stimulus to increase aggregate demand" and THIS

    " He said he thinks the country should broaden its view of which workers qualify for overtime pay and make it easier for workers to unionize and bargain for better wages.

    He pointed to paid leave and affordable childcare as key to improving the economy, and said he believes it is an economic imperative to create a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. "

    As Governor, he increased sales taxes, income taxes on high-income earners and created new taxes on services. He also raised the gas tax for the first time in more than two decades and increased the corporate tax rate. Don't let this guy anywhere near the White House.
    I wonder if he's planning to turn down Wall Street money?
