The Democrats are down to three?

Looking at my Democrat forum it looks the Democrats are down to three candidates.

Joe Biden.
Bernie Sanders.
Elizabeth Warren.

The VP must be a person of color other that white.

The cool thing is that all three of them can beat Trump.

Except Buttigieg is still leading in the polling in Iowa and New Hampshire and Bloomberg is actually polling well. Progressives (likely the people posting on your "Democrat forum") don't like him and others see him as a Johnny-come-lately, but he's positioned with Biden and Buttigieg but without their weaknesses. And he's a businessman, moderate Republicans. :-k

And watch for Warren's numbers to perk up and Biden's to drop as she attacks him on the personal bankruptcy law. Forget busing or his gaffes, that one's his Achilles heel.

This new international clusterbumble by Trump should help Biden given his foreign policy experience.

Except even Gabbard and Yang would know better than to take an action like that without thinking about consequences.

Williamson would have held a drum circle at the embassy.

It is confusing...the way it's written a "normal" person would read it as Jan. 5 to Aug. 20

So Senator Dianne Feinstein and a few other Democrats are pushing Nancy Pelosi to release the articles of impeachment to the Senate for trial. This will pull Senator Sanders, Senator Warren and Senator Klobuchar off the campaign trail for weeks.

I wonder who Senator Dianne Feinstein has endorsed? :giggle: Correct Joe Biden.

So you really think McConnell will let the "trial" go on for weeks? Funny

Kind of funny. A real trial might hurt the Senator/candidates (but there's always TV) but the sham trial that McConnell is proposing would actually help them.

Pelosi/Dems want a real trial with real witnesses

McConnell/Republicans want no trial with no witnesses

Trump wants a fake trial with fake witnesses

And a vast number Americans don't really care

They just want cheap stuff and security in exchange for minimal personal sacrifice

This is the country we have become

Sanders hit Binden with new TV ads today.
Sanders campaign worker gets caught on hidden camera talking about burning down towns if Sanders doesn't win.
Warren running out of money.
Klobuchar and Buttigieg still on stage.
Hunter Binden news still won't go away.
And like a U-boat sitting off the coast Bloomberg is an unknown.

IMO Warren needs to move more to the right. She need to be seen between Sanders and Binden after tonight. :2cents:

Then you won't notice when he replaces Trump.

Okay, that was funny.

My new dream ticket, Biden/Warren...hits every Democratic voter group they need and moderates too

*One* campaign worker caught on camera by Myles "Mr. Credibility" O'Keefe. Yawn.

Total non-story except in Bizarro Trumpworld. But you're right. It won't go away. Putin will see to it that Republicans' Facebook feeds are filled with clickbait links about it.

I agree. She's reminding me of Romney's performance in the primaries in 2012 where he catered to the far right but couldn't ditch what he'd said when he tried to move toward the center for the general election. Warren would have to move away from some of her farthest-left ideas to appeal to the mass audience and she doesn't seem like the kind of person who would do that. I think she's a great advocate for the common citizens but most of her ideas would be too easy for Trump's people to turn "scary."
