    Democrats, you have one real job...and you are screwing it up

    The most important job Democrats have -- in the view of this ex-Republican -- is to offer up someone who independents and NeverTrumpers can vote for instead of Trump.

    Thus far, you are ****ing this up.

    Example: the latest cluster **** is the "New Green Deal". Some of the early D contenders have "signed on". Kamala. Cory.

    So they are out for this NeverTrumper. Kamala took herself out for me when she said she would eliminate all private health insurance, including that provided by employers.

    As much as I've hated Nancy P. in the past, she gained some respect for saying the "New Green Deal" was a "dream deal". IOW, not realistic. She is at least pragmatic.

    I will never vote for Trump. I would never normally vote for a Democrat either. But I considered it it as opposition to Trump.

    Be careful of letting this pendulum swing too far. You are dangerously close to snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory.

    Nah. They're actually not screwing it up. Based on the last mid terms, people put the dems in the house for a reason. They're simply not coming dangerously close to what you're suggesting.
    Well, he see this one particularly hot chick and not does she bag he slackjawed, but he lets a "Whoa" slip out

    You are comparing some districts vs the electoral college. Not a good wager.

    You're actually taking for granted that things that have been merely suggested by one individual will become policy of a candidate and a party. Not a good wager.

    Kamala has said she signs on with the New Green Deal. I will not vote for her because of it.

    Cory Booker has said he signs on with the New Green Deal. I will not vote for him because of it.

    If I were a member of the Democratic herd, I wouldn't be all that concerned.

    The five or six who have thrown their hat in the ring so far have no chance of getting the nomination. They are nothing but cannon fodder. The Party Elites will decide when to trot out the nominee...and who it is...when they are ready, and it won't be anytime soon. Perhaps in the summer. It'll be clear who that is because the media will be all for the person.

    In the meantime, the cannon fodder will spout off with their nonsense and that'll keep the Party plebes occupied. The Party Elites won't let them get too far out of hand.

    So just be patient, Airyaman. You'll know who to vote for in due time. The media will tell you.

    I voted for Gary Johnson in 2012 and no one in 2016 (all candidates were horse ****).

    What media outlets told me to vote that way?
