A Biden-Warren Ticket

I’m playing pundit here, with all the risks that implies, but I think Joe Biden will win enough delegates to have a majority going into the convention, and that he will be the nominee. For one thing, the governor of Michigan. Gretchen Whitmer, has just endorsed him ahead of next week’s primary. Her endorsement, while…

super-Tuesday moves clarity forward as Biden now leads in delegates

Weird night as Jill Biden tackled a protester on stage in California and voters waited over 5 hours to vote in Texas. Had Trump not gotten caught shaking down Ukraine, he might have won the 2020 election like 2016. Because of the GOP’s Biden(s) vitriol, the Arms for Dirt scandal and its subsequent impeachment may have actually helped build the…

the limits of punditry have Warren ahead of Biden and Sanders

Revisionism has no race, class, gender, even as economic justice reigns. Last week, the Root joined the chorus with its “Every Democratic Candidates’ ‘Black Agenda’ Ranked” study. They enlisted “policy experts, legal scholars, and political pundits, all of whom were black,” none of whom were revealed, to create a policy framework and grade the candidates accordingly using a one-to-ten…

A Sanders-Warren Ticket

Taegan Goddard’s Political Wire has an interesting piece up this morning (paywall): Bernie’s Most Likely Running Mate should be Elizabeth Warren. The argument goes basically like this: Bernie will probably arrive at the convention with a plurality of delegates, but not a majority. Warren has made it clear she intends to continue to compete right…

I Want Warren – But I May Vote For Bernie [Update w/ Thanks]

Submitted for your thoughts… I’ve been a Warren supporter for a while now. (I also donated to Amy after NH.) She has smarts, she is feisty, she impresses the hell out of me on several levels. And while I’m not as progressive as she is, she presents her plans in ways that make sense. Plus,…

Drive the scorpion media crazy – vote for Warren

I am sure many of you know the fable to the scorpion and the frog. The scorpion needs to get across a stream. The scorpion approaches a frog and says, “If you will take me across the river on your back I will do you a favor later. This is not difficult for the frog…

I think Elizabeth Warren broke punditry

So Elizabeth Warren came out with the most comprehensive plan for paying for Medicare for All in History. The most important question in the 2020 election!! I mean we have impeachment, sure, but this is going to determine our future right?  The pundits are going to be all over this right? It is 60 pages…

Warren selfies now available at your local airport

Well, if you’re lucky enough to share a gate with her, anyway. I can’t imagine this can go on forever — what with Secret Service protection being what it is — but boy is it charming for the moment. It’s also an effective strategy for showing she’s not only a tireless advocate for the common people, but approachable…

Two Polls Show Republican Sen. Tom Tillis in Trouble in NC Senate Race

Democratic candidate Cal Cunningham has a two point edge in the 2020 Senate race in North Carolina over Republican incumbent Tom Tillis who has a high unfavorable rate. thehill.com/… The poll, conducted by the left-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP) and commissioned by the Democratic outside group End Citizens United, shows Cunningham leading Tillis 45 percent…

Trump can't stop obsessing over Elizabeth Warren's crowd sizes

Master projectionist Donald Trump isn’t buying estimates of Elizabeth Warren’s crowd sizes. According to the Warren campaign, she drew a massive 20,000 supporters to a rally in New York on Monday, but Trump believes that number is more inflated than the turgid muskmelon atop his shoulders. Politico: “Certainly, if I went to Manhattan, if I…
