I'm a little bit surprised people who are so sophisticated about politics don't realize how much the corporate controlled MSM is sculpting the presidential race.
Let's look at these things shall we.
Who is mentioned the most on TV? Hillary
Who's mentioned 2nd most? Obama
Who's mentioned next most? Al Gore (Oscars, inconvenient truth, etc...)
Both Al Gore and Hillary have virtually 100% name recognition.
In polls where Al Gore drops out why does Hillary than get most of his support?

The diary below was originally posted in my blog, the Intrepid Liberal Journal on Saturday, September 23rd when the interview took place.
Thom Hartmann is a dynamic voice for the aggrieved middle class. After one commercial break on a recent broadcast, the national radio host proudly declared,
"Welcome back to the Thom Hartman show where our talking points come from Jefferson and Madison, not some right wing think tank."
He then asks, "Will the next election be hacked?" as he promotes Bobby Kennedy, Jr.'s article in Rolling Stone magazine that examines fraudulent vote counting to the benefit of Republican candidates.
Talkers Magazine noted,
"There's a buzz growing around nationally syndicated talk show host Thom Hartmann, whose nationally syndicated daily program is drawing high marks by those who are on the lookout for talk radio's `Great Liberal Hope.'"

John Edwards and Bernie Sanders are about the only politicians discussing it, but what could be the hottest issue in this election is the death of the middle class caused by the "flat-earthers." So-called "conservatives" and "flat world" globalists have bankrupted our nation's middle class for their own bag of silver, and in the process are selling off America. Through a combination of the "Fast Track" authority pushed for by Reagan and GHW Bush, sweetheart trade deals involving "most favored nation status" for dictatorships like China, and Clinton pushing us into NAFTA and the WTO (via GATT), we've abandoned the principles of tariff-based trade that built American industry and kept us strong for over 200 years.

There's a battle waging today in America that will decide the future of the Middle Class.
On one side are those like Thomas Jefferson who believe that a free people can govern themselves and have the right to organize their government to create a strong middle class - which will, in turn, keep the government democratic. On the other side are those like Thomas Hobbes who believe that only a small elite can and should govern and that the people should be willing to pay the price of poverty in exchange for security.
