Identity politics is alive and well. Actually, it always has been. It's just that different identities (women/black) are finally being offered up as winners, and everyone's all hot and bothered over that.
Usually, our choice is, which old white guy am I going to project my hopes onto. This season, it's altogether different.
Jerome uses the worst kind of demagoguery and self-serving logic. He's a charlotann. But the lies he tells make you feel good, so enjoy them for these two weeks. Think of it as a nice cruise before you get sent back to the salt mines.
it does make for a mixed bag. The answer is, this is what it takes to take down a former presidential family and the party machine.
The real way to resolve this is simple: Obama has to win a state he wasn't supposed to. Since PA is over, that brings us to Indiana. If he wins IN and NC, I think it'll start to gel in people's minds. Until then, it's gonna be a long fight!
confidence mean, not performing mental gymnastics to concoct a phony popular vote lead. And not denigrating the legitimacy of the nominating process by cherry picking metrics that support your candidate.
So yah, I kinda wonder, after Hillary's decisive victory last night, why are so many of her supporters tainting it with that crap? It's a sign of weakness.
Your diary, on the other hand, is one of confidence. Cheers to you and congrats on your PA win.
ok, I guess I took your "pledged delegates are a farce" argument as trying to change the rules midstream. Silly me!
Ok, I'll play it your way: If Hillary can convince the SDs to go her way, then she wins. Fair enough. The only caveat I offer is, if the Dem Nominee isn't perceived to be legitimate by the rank and file, then the party will implode and we'll lose spectacularly. If she lucks out, she may be in a position to do this, which would be devastating.
So let's hope you aren't rooting for that, cuz one way or another, I want a legitimate nominee. One we all agree won fair and square.
