I hope she hangs in there but she's got some history that rankles people.
Gotta take the chunky with the smooth, tho, and I think her positions on the things that are important to me are good. She's met with Assad and that got her in trouble. Her dad's a little nuts and she's had to distance herself from him.

Our caucus is ranked-choice and she's my 2nd. Probably should be my first but I let myself play the prognostication game and I went with Bernie just to try to keep him in the hunt.
 
Well she qualifies with all the rest!

I don't mind listening to her talk about things.
Unlike Warren and Clinton.

I like her and an interesting side note that doesn't really mean anything, but she is the only really pretty Presidential candidate that I have ever seen other than Benjamin Harrison of course.

"Here's the thing," Warren said in a speech to a convention of the California Democratic Party nine months ago. "When a candidate tells you about all the things that aren't possible, about how political calculations come first . . . they're telling you something very important—they are telling you that they will not fight for you."

Yeah, that's one of those semantic "nuances" (which may sometimes be used unconsciously), like the difference between "confident" and "aggressive" for the same behaviors but by different genders.

If Bloomberg gets any traction (which I think he will on super tuesday), The democrats may find themselves enamored with citizens united.

I didn't find any clips or quotes of Rattner (misspelled in Tweet above) having said those exact words but I did find this which seems to express a related sentiment:

Probably paraphrased. Rattner not only supports Bloomberg, but also apparently manages his money, and is a bit of a swamp creature too.

His voters (and fans) are more in tune with the (milder version of the) GOP, like Bloomberg himself.

Also, it wouldn't be so much about voters, but about delegates. Party mechanics/machinations.

Hypothetically speaking......

Suppose Bernie Sanders wins the nomination and succeeds in becoming president.  Would he focus on a small handful of policy goals, let the others go and tone down his rhetoric?

————————————-

I would like to see Andrew Yang become president of the USA.  But if that is my preference, I can guarantee you all, it will not happen.
