The state of nevada has a lot of demographic features tht would make it friendly to dlc politics. Large defense industry. Economically conseravtive, socially liberal gambling industry. Strong, conservative zionist organizations. Large upper middle class suburbs. I am not going to take bets on whether the audience was planted but their will be other debates, and this war is important to people so I don't think their decisions will be as shallow as in the past.
Bill O'Lielly would go after Hillary on her choice of white vs colored Christmas lights. This women is upset about the homeless and the working poor. There are many people in that category that don't like Hillary dlc politics.
I don't know if anyone has done a true class analysis of the electorate, but I suspect the more informed a working class women is about Hillary and support of war, and of regressive dlc economic policies, that harm the poor, the less likely she is to support her.
Would someone explain to me why we want them to achieve this goal given the fact that they 1)aren't going to stop the war 2have taken impeachment off the table, and 3)will probably just use the money to condemn moveon and other truly progressive organizations some more.
If you really want to elect progressives contribute to actblue. Hoyer, Pelosi, Rham and the DCSS, can go take a leap.
No, he is just going to throw the war in Iraq and the new war in Iran at her some more, which is a completely legitimate issue, that she is currently on the wrong side of. Women voters are particularly negative about more conflict, so if he gets his message out there it will work against her.
I honestly don't what's holding them up after that knockout of a speech. Honestly could the netroots ask for more than what Edwards just gave, and why are Chris Bowers, and Stoller, both staunch critics of the antilabor stances of the DLC, more interested in proving Clinton electable, than in finding and alternative to her corporatism.
I was very optimistic about openleft until it turned into horse race site. That is what we criticise the mainstream pundits over.
