Famb, the point is that something so silly should not effect your vote.

Like this women wanted to fight for universal healthcare, real gun control, tons of anti poverty measures, and criminal justice reform. Tons of things you want and you want for your community, but you would potentially disregard all that over a lil 10 second corny dance.

After Obama everyone is a corny old white person, nothing they do to connect with a young minority audience in a cool way will land 100%. Somehow dudes let Trump's hotline bling slide though.

Hill may have done better if she just talked about her policy proposals rather than trying to be hip.

And ANYBODY who thinks Hillary should run again needs to be slapped on sight. She lost to a black guy who's name rhymes with Osama and a reality TV star suffering from dementia, clearly this just ain't for her laugh.gif

Dawg

I think Ta'Nehisi Coates, who is not a big Clinton fan at all, had two of the best insights into people's reaction to Hillary.

-First he said that the messenger mattered more to some people than the message. That Hillary took up many causes of the left, but people dismissed her and looked pass her progressive platform because it was Hillary Clinton speaking.

In other words, the lady that said Super Predators can't really be trusted to fight for criminal justice reform, the woman whose husband passed NAFTA can't really be for helping the Rust Belt, the New York politician would not really regulate Wall St, and the person who championed means testing so much isn't really out to help the poor.

-Second, the media punished her whenever she told the truth, especially when she told big truths. No one in the mainstream media tried to look into the truthfulness of the "deplorables" comment. They just talked about how much she should not have said it. It being true or not didn't matter. Also when she straight up told Coal Country their jobs are not coming back and she would look to help them in other ways, the media presented it as a gaffe and never brought on an economist or energy wonk to explain where that comment was coming from. Even with single payer, she was honest that Bernie was selling a political pipe dream, yet progressives media on the left got mad at her

It is kinda weird. You distrust someone because you think they are never honest, but you flip out when they keep it #100. It incentivizes them to not be fully sincere in the future.

There are a lot of criticism to give the Clintons and Hillary, but folk need to come to terms that much of it is irrational. Based in emotion and suspicion, rather than hard fact.

Find it then. I've never considered voting for Trump. If I said that I was voting for Trump, which I'm sure I didn't, I was prob just messing around.

Hillary could say she's balanced the budget, cleared the debt and everyone gets a 10k tax credit and would still lose. She'll forever have to deal with unnecessary character assassination augmented by her ties and gender.
post #79392 of 79405
Dems need to run Kamala Harris in 2020.
post #79393 of 79405
Martin O'Malley definitely gonna run again. Like it is a lock, he already has hired consultants to do polling

See what I mean about fickle liberals. Trump dancing to Hotline Bling probably had some of his voters biting their bottom lip...."Buss it open Papi Naranja"

-Hillary got so much flak for the hot sauce comment, but ole girl actually been collecting sauces for decades. But after the Abuela stuff I can see why people would think it was just pandering. laugh.gif
Yeah, after further research I felt more endeared to her. She just comes off as a robot sometimes, so I always had the sideeye.laugh.gif

Don't get me wrong though, I was never going to vote the other way, even though I was a Bernie fan initially.

She had to go up against straight lies. The Goldman Sachs stuff and "Drain the swamp", look at the White House now. Idiots bought into all that.

Again,

Sad to say but it needs to be a white male for a better chance. America showed it's colors and regressed decades out of fear of no longer feeling Superior, now we deal so we can at least progress policy wise.

John Bel Edwards or the Mayor of Boston should run.
post #79398 of 79405
I'm far from a fan of this new era of celebrity politicians...but am I crazy to think Zuckerbergbwould be a good response.

At the least, it will rally the hell out of the base.

I'll say this again, if Jason Kander had won his Senate race, he would be a front runner for 2020.

A young, white, articulate, war veteran, from the Midwest, and running on the 2016 Dem platform would be a dream candidate for the Dems.
post #79401 of 79405
Mark Wahlberg gonna run in 2020. Dwayne Johnson will be his VP.

Would that lieutenant governor from Cali ever consider running?

Politics is it's own beast, I believe you need experience to understand it. Folks were talking that business **** with Trump and look how he's flailing. Zuckerberg, Cuban would have the same issues. Being smart and running a business isn't a qualifier. Start small if you're really serious about it.
