    I'm liking Sen Sanders myself, too.

    I don't know enough about Sen Webb's platform, but he does have a great life story, and seems somewhat of a self-made 'renaissance man'.

    One of his earlier books, 'Fields of Fire' is an awesome 'Nam era novel based upon his wartime experiences and is very well written (along with being a runaway national best seller).

    A potential POTUS who wants to literally wrangle the middleman. What could go wrong?

    Why do you hate the constitution?

    Gotta admit, great comeback from Hillary's Press Secretary...

    Clinton Campaign Response
    While the GOP may want to spin a good yarn on this, let's not get tied up in knots. We wanted to accomodate the press, allow her [to] greet voters, and allow the press to be right there... and that's what we did.

And he did meet with them privately, early-on, as has been often discussed.

    Now, the cynics see a wholesale sellout to the insurance industry behind those closed doors, and the cynic-in-me is wary as well. But, I do remember seeing Secy Clinton in an interview just after the ACA passed into law, when questioned about the lack of single-payer, she stated:

    "First we've got to get everyone in"

    And, perhaps she (& Mr. Obama) are right. Getting national healthcare off the gro

    und, even if through the mess that is the ACA, may be the politically required pre-cursor to an eventual single-payer system (or a workable hybrid - a unique American system).

    It is very possible - and Secy Clinton's earlier failure may be a testament to such.

    Perhaps.



    "First we've got to get everyone on board" is what didn't happen.

    And, based on health economists observations here, it was a complete sell out to the insurance industry right down to "you cannot keep you plan". A bad scheme sold on a lie......

    That is not advancing to the objective, but moving backwards. The insurance industry fought it here too, as hid health cos. But you will never have a sustainable and affording system with for profit medicine. I has never worked in education, it doesn't work here.

    BY the way, "single payer" is an American invention to identify it against the idiocy of four and five payers. Across the world it is called either Universal Health Care, or simply health care. What you have no is a health industry and the government forces averaged rates

    Correct. The headline is a lie. No one was "corralled"

    What really happen is that they used a rope to keep the press in front of her so they wouldn't stop her from proceeding. If anyone in the press didn't like it, they were free to move to sidewalk and watch her pass them by

    This did nothing for her image here in NH. The press is annoyed and disgusted. The people of the state are disgusted. She wasn't the only candidate here this weekend marching in parades, and she was actually in one of the smallest parades. The rest of them didn't do this. This pig can't be perfumed.

    Bernie is digging this, I'm sure. He wouldn't do this.
