Hillary has quite a bizarre definition of "progressive".  Frown

How much money has she taking from Super-Pacs and Wall Street?

Hillary Clinton is going to really regret saying these 4 words about Goldman Sachs


Sanders, Clinton are poised to fight it out on the national stage


So was this the reason for Clinton's rush to proclaim victory in Iowa?

Errors found in Iowa Democratic caucus results


Are endorsements that significant because if it were me I would be a bit resentful if someone tried to tell me how to vote.

Why doesn'y Hillary just admit she is the establishment candidate

Hillary is such a liar it's no wonder she is having so many problems

Can New Hampshire's political class save Clinton?

She's locked up the support of the state's establishment. But it might not be enough -- and her campaign wants you to know that.

or on her exhortations that she’s no establishment candidate — but the former secretary of state, senator and first lady has nearly the entire roster of the state’s high-profile Democratic leaders on her side, from the governor on down.



That is one heck of a lot of moola in anyone's game.

Goldman Sachs Paid The Clintons $2.2 MILLION For Speeches...Just Tip of Iceberg.



If there is any substance of wrongdoing to this it won't look very good for Hillary and her establishment machine. After all didn't she already win most if not all of the coin tosses. By the way is there a way to toss a coin so you make the odds in your favour?

Iowans claim instances when Sanders was shorted delegates

Keane Schwarz is certain he knows the outcome of the vote in his precinct: He was the lone caucusgoer in Woodbury County No. 43.

But the Iowa Democratic Party's final results state that Hillary Clinton won one county delegate and Bernie Sanders received zero.

"I voted for Bernie," Schwarz, 36, of Oto, told The Des Moines Register. “It was really suspicious … I’m actually pretty irate about it.”


As suspected recount narrows the Democratic contest results in Iowa, and although Clinton is still ahead, her lead now is so miniscule makes it for all intent and purposes a tie.

NH will probably be a lot closer than the polls suggest just like Iowa as Clinton won NH in 2008. 

Hillary Clinton's problem: Too much prose.

She's unlikely to win Tuesday's New Hampshire primary, but that needn't stop her from winning the nomination. (Second-place finishers in New Hampshire include Bill Clinton in 1992 and Barack Obama in 2008; Hillary Clinton was present both times.)

She's still the Democrats' national front-runner, still likely to win the nomination by grinding it out. But it won't be as easy as it once looked; it won't be much fun. And if she faces a deficit of enthusiasm among voters in the fall, she'll have only herself to blame.


I wonder how many other Americans feel the same way.

How Clinton plans to stop Sanders' momentum

The Clinton campaign is even looking to pick off delegates in the Vermont senator's home state.


Firday's Quinnipiac poll wasn't an outlier after all so I suppose this is the real reason for Bill Clinton's vicious outburst against Bernie

Exclusive: Presidential hopefuls Sanders, Clinton in dead heat - Reuters/Ipsos poll

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has erased Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's wide lead for the Democratic presidential nomination since the start of year, putting the two in a dead heat nationally, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

Clinton leads Sanders 48 percent to 45 percent among Democratic voters, according to the poll of 512 Americans, conducted Feb. 2-5 following the Iowa caucus. The poll has a credibility interval of 5 percentage points.

Democrats had been supporting Clinton by more than a 2-to-1 margin at the beginning of the year. Sanders has narrowed that lead considerably over the past several weeks.

Clinton beat Sanders narrowly in the Iowa caucuses, the nation's first nomination contest ahead of the November election, but is expected to lose to him in New Hampshire.


Good question!

Why Won't Clinton Release Transcripts of Paid Speeches? Chris Cillizza, Wash Post



Bernie Sanders: America's Mainstream Candidate

The main reason for voters' relative unfamiliarity with him was the intense and intentional mainstream media blackout of Bernie Sanders throughout the Fall, dubbed the "Bernie blackout." It wasn't until the Sanders campaign called out major networks like NBC, CBS and ABC in early January on their biased coverage (a whopping 23 to 1 ratio of Trump to Bernie despite their similar polling numbers) that they've begrudgingly begun to adjust their focus. When he was covered nationally, it was usually with open derision and disdain from establishment and corporate-owned punditry. They would talk themselves in circles over his "unelectability," or his "lack of experience," and especially his "radical views" that are far "too idealistic." All that nonsense was exposed as hollow words on the night of the Iowa Caucus.

Escaping defeat by the narrowest of margins, even requiring odd-defying coin flip wins in six precincts, the Clinton campaign was put on notice. Even in a state like Iowa, where she has been cultivating a loyal Clinton base for over two decades, even with 1/4 voters still in the dark about Sanders' stances on the issues, she was unable to pronounce a convincing, or entirely confirmed, victory ... and the Sanders campaign is just warming up. In a recent CNN poll of democratic primary voters in New Hampshire, Bernie Sanders has extended his lead to 31 points over Clinton, an 8-point boost in the past few days.

The mainstream media may still be in denial, but mainstream America is waking up. Sanders' calls to end a corrupt campaign finance system, to make the wealthy and corporations pay their fair share of taxes, and to put 13 million people to work rebuilding our nation's crumbling infrastructure are just a small part of his agenda that is resonating with americans of all party affiliation. His advocacy for tuition-free public colleges and universities is hitting home not only with students, but with parents and grandparents. Bernie's Medicare-For-All single-payer health plan is resonating as well; with the enormous benefit for over 95% of tax payers, where a family with a household income of $50,000 per year would enjoy a net savings of over $5,000 per year. There is very little, in fact, on Bernie Sanders' agenda that is is not widely supported by the majority of Americans according to polling of the issues.

These and other recent polling results show a stark disconnect between what corporate media is saying and what the people are saying. Is it any wonder why that is the case? It shouldn't be. Always remember whose money they represent and who they are beholden to. Bernie is running a grassroots, people-funded campaign and is therefore only beholden to us. The polls are telling the underlying truth: the more people hear Bernie, the more people like Bernie. His message is spreading like a wildfire, and the people are beginning to Feel The Bern!


Dems, stop lying to yourselves about Hillary: Sure, she “gets s*** done” — atrocious s***, that is

The argument that Clinton can navigate the nightmare of D.C. better than Bernie is simply wrong



In 1963 Bernie Sanders Marched With MLK Jr on Washington DC's "I Have A Dream Speech".

In 1964, Hillary Clinton Campaigned for Sen Goldwater who Promised to Racially Re-Segregate the Nation & Overturn the Civil Rights Act.




Is it really going that bad for the Clintons?

Clinton weighs staff shake-up after New Hampshire

'The Clintons are not happy, and have been letting all of us know that,' one Democrat says.


Michael Moore, the well known Democratic Flint resident film maker, according to Ben Jealous, is a big supporter of Sanders. Jealous is presently on CNN, and he just unloaded on Clinton, and ended up by saying the Clinton's support in the Afro-American communities will now begin to diminish.

Many of CNN's employee commentators appear to let their biases show in their support for Clinton.


In other words what is the point of electing another Margaret Thatcher, eh! 

Bernie Sanders' Female Supporters Want To Break The Gender Barrier... Just Not Now

Many are deeply torn about not being with Hillary Clinton this election.

At Sanders' rallies here in New Hampshire, you meet plenty of women just like Heffernan. They are emotionally invested in electing a woman president. They know that the glass ceiling needs to be cracked. But they aren't convinced Clinton is the one to do it.


Clinton Defends Albright and Steinem Apologizes as Sexism Claims Dominate Democratic Race

The feminist writer Gloria Steinem apologized on Sunday for remarks about young women who support Bernie Sanders, not long after Hillary Clinton defended Madeleine Albright over her comment that 'There is a special place in hell' for women who do not support Clinton..."

I think, if there was such a place, reservations are already made for both of these monsters.


Very disappointing numbers for Hillary as Sanders lead is now increasing in NH.  

The last CNN/WMUR NH poll shows Bernie with a 26% lead over Hillary.

No wonder the Clintons are considering a shakeup in their organization.

Perhaps Bill Clinton's outrageous remarks are doing damge to Hillary's campaign.

Candidate / Feb 7 / Feb 8 / Change

Sanders - 58% / 61% / Up 3%

Clinton - 35% / 35% / Unchanged

Axelrod subtweets Bill and Hillary Clinton after shake-up report

David Axelrod took to Twitter on Monday to criticize Hillary Clinton's political strategy in New Hampshire, following news that her campaign is considering shaking up its staffing after an expected loss there.

"When the exact same problems crop up in separate campaigns, with different staff, at what point do the principals say, 'Hey, maybe it's US?'," the former top aide to President Barack Obama tweeted.


No surprise here. No wonder Hillary is balking at releasing here speeches. Frown

GOP spin.

Hillary Clinton’s political machine has been busted — thanks to Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren

A political revolution within the Democratic Party has undermined Hillary Clinton's powerful political machine


The big question for the Democratic voters in the balance of the primaries now is who can best run against Trump. Hillary's policies are a lot closer to Trumps, which may not be enough of a contrast for the voters. I would vote for the revolution guy to help make everyone in America "Feel the Bern".


The Clintons will of course put up a huge fight. Already they are moving. For example no TV coverage of Clinton's concession speech will be allowed.


59% vs 41%, 18% spread for Bernie

Hillary after all is said and done tonite will still be favoured to win the Democratic nomination. Frown


TV is allowed after all,  Clinton on CNN live now


Thanks for that lagatta. Laughing


So what else is new? As if this is some kind of surprise.


We’ve been focusing so much on the ideological divide on the Democratic side that you may forget about what looks to be a developing class divide. Sanders has won every income group, except for voters from families with a total yearly income of $200,000 or more. If you look at voters’ educational attainment, he’s doing worst among voters with a post-graduate degree — beating Clinton by just 3 percentage points. The wealthiest Democrats were also Clinton’s best group in Iowa.



So its the Revolutionaries (lots and lots and lots of people) vs Wall Street (lots and lots and lots of money). 


Well the Revolutionaries won a big one tonite.  Laughing


If the Democratic establishment game the system against Sanders there probably will be a GOP President in November. 

Sanders’s speech emphasized the power of the people and the idea that when turnout is high, progressives win. He’s also made a point to talk about the need for eventual party unity and has moved on to attacking Republicans. But as this was going on, I got this tweet:

Rum Doodle‏@rumdoodle

@julia_azari Rep party might not be able to stop candidates they don't like, but Dem superdelegate system is sabotaging Sanders just fine.

Now, New Hampshire and Iowa determine fewer than 100 delegates combined. It’s very early to talk about what the Democratic primary electorate wants. But Sanders and his supporters may walk a fine line here: If Clinton wins in a way that liberal activists see as illegitimate, that could be a real mess.



Nate Silver of 538 had an article previously to the effect that Sanders had to win big in NH.

Is 20% or + big enough?  Laughing



Maybe Bill Clinton should take a rest, eh!

It’s Clinton Déjà Vu — New Hampshire Brings Snow and Rumors of Campaign Implosion

This, of course, is when the Clintons are at their best and most dangerous. Their well-honed survival instinct kicks in. The challenger gets cocky. Next thing we know, there the Clintons are again, up on another New Hampshire pedestal, claiming victory. In other words, here we are in the midst of another Supposed Looming Implosion in New Hampshire, and as of noon on Primary Day, I am ruling nothing out.

And of course Joe Biden, who is tanned and tested, is ruling nothing out either.
