Here we are today with only around 3% of delegates decided (yes logicians, that does mean there are 97% of delegates yet to be awarded), and the candidates that are really winning this primary are Chicken Little and The Hulk.
Finally! After a two month break from debates, the top ten candidates for president in the Democratic Party gather in Houston to debate. And all of them on the same stage on the same...
We will likely see the largest and most diverse field of Democrats running for the presidential nomination. Here is our Way Too Early List of which Democrats may be more or less likely to win the 2020 nomination and why.
The next Democratic primary for president in 2020 will not be a Back to the Future experience, Hillary will not be running against Bernie. Whoever the candidate turns out to be, he or she will be the only hope for America to end the destructive rampage of the Trump regime.
DNC, don't chase after Trump voters. Instead, use the Field of Dreams approach, "If you build it, they will come."
Elizabeth Warren is everything Hillary needed to be but couldn't be to win this election. She is authentic, inspirational, a woman of the people, sympathetic, has an enthusiastic following in the Dem base and is a powerful and energizing speaker. She is a fighter for the regular American worker who feels left behind or neglected by their government/society, the very voters Trump used to win election because they felt they had nowhere else to go.
Today the DNC convention begins and from the advance word, we're in store for less schizophrenia and more rational speeches about reality (one of the top banned substances at the RNC).
Superdelegates were added to Democratic primaries after non-establishment candidates George McGovern and Jimmy Carter beat out establishment candidates in 1972 and 1976. It was and is a ploy to allow Democrat elites to overrule Dem voters.
The race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders has become quite combative, making tonight's debate between them quite timely. As usual, PlanetPOV will be hosting a simultaneous live chat open to all members...the best way on The Planet to watch a debate!
This could be the night Marco Rubio is knocked out of the GOP Primary, Kasich may win his first (and possibly only) primary and Donald Trump could become the only Republican with a mathematically viable path towards winning the GOP nom. Post your thoughts, observations and predictions on the night's results!

How to Solve the Manchin and Sinema Blockade of the Biden Agenda

Many brave Democrats lost their seats in 2010 for voting for the ACA but in doing so, they saved and helped millions of Americans, past, present and future. What they did was noble and profound, they changed history for the better. Clearly, Manchin and Sinema are not cut from the same cloth but perhaps they can be leveraged to do the right thing and become reluctant heroes in the end despite themselves.
