I saw that earlier today. It seems unexpected. He was only 68.

Maybe it's wishful thinking, but I seem to be seeing more and more examples of people fighting back against both Right- and Left-Wing fundamentalism. Here's a great little comment from President Obama:



I also came across this essay on CNN, which is not only a very good essay but includes some encouraging statistics.

^I really miss Obama.

I saw that video on Democratic Underground and it was getting most positive reviews there- though still there were some who were "disappointed" in him. But we are, as a culture, becoming increasingly judgemental and uncompromising. The recent incident with California's Katie Hill being a good example of it as it's debatable if she actually did anything wrong legally.

As far as I understand it, it was something that happened before she was elected and was related to new rules. The worst she would have gotten was a slap on the wrist. Either she's overreacting or there's more that she's afraid will come out.

^Or she just wasn't up for the fight. That sounds bad but there are moments in life where you do have to ask yourself "is this really worth it?".

Yeah, that's possible. I don't think some of these newbies are really up for the political life.

I imagine that it comes as a surprise (though it shouldn't) that so many would suddenly be out to destroy you.

Really good news that Kentucky, a deeply red state, elected a Democrat governor. Here in Virginia, we're getting bluer and bluer. I sense a refreshing change in the air.

Things change. Believe it or not California used to be a red state.

I think you're right, back when I lived in California as a kid in the 1960s when some guy named Ronald Reagan was the Governator.

It was a real squeaker, though. Less than half a percentage point.

A commentary from Rahm Emanuel pretty much nails it.

Indeed, everything he says is true. And this is also why Sleepy Joe has the best chance of winning.

^Which is amazing as the pundits on MSNBC have been predicting his campaign's imminent collapse for months now. :lol:

CNN has been emphasizing how Warren is close to displacing him in the top spot, too. But I really hope that he gets it, and I'm pretty confident that he will at this point.

Of course, the sad flip side to that is that he'll probably die in office. :(

Bernie Sanders is older and frankly Warren's not exactly a spring chicken. :oldman:

So that means the selection of running mate is crucial. One of us should volunteer.

There's no way Bernie is going to be president, but yeah, I keep forgetting how old Warren is. Basically, whoever wins the next election, there is a decent chance that we will see the first death of a president in office since 1963. Considering the toll the job takes on its occupants (except for the ever-oblivious Donald), I'd say that it's a near certainty when it comes to Biden.
