Sanders' plan to save the planet — and journalism — and his new Trump-beating credentials give him some ammunition. Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders faces two major roadblocks in his bid for the nomination: The perception that he can’t beat Donald Trump in a general election; and fellow senator Elizabeth Warren’s quest for his share of the party’s progressive left. But this week, Sanders appeared to make significant strides in overcoming both challenges.

While the demise of Biden is heartening, I am stunned that he is even close to Sanders and Warren...notice how Gabbard is being blacklisted?

Gabbard has the best chance of beating Trump of any of them, in spite of the constant "one-trick pony" smearing of her.

I'd like a Sanders/Gabbard ticket (either configuration!)

And I trust you meant to mention Marianne Williamson.


P.S. If not, why not? Please do answer.

You are right! I'd be very happy with any two out of that group of three for Pres and VP. And whoever is left can have some other major position.

Actually Tulsi would be great as Secty of Defense.

And Marianne would be great as Secty of Peace (we need a Dept of Peace, of course.)

And Eliz Warren can be Secty of the Treasury

And Stacey Abrams can be US Atty General

who am I leaving out?

Secty of Commerce? Andrew Yang or Tom Steyer?

Secty of Education - Alyssa Pressley?

I guess Bernie's gotta be pres

;-)

I think the demise of Biden is more thorough in actual fact than it appears in many of the polls...


and yes, the blacklisting of Gabbard is the best indication of her ability to do the job!

I believe Biden was put up there not with the intention of his winning, but to give time for Kamala Harris to gain traction. Kamala has been the "darling" of the DNC all along and I believe Tulsi knew this, hence the 2nd debate's exposure of a dangerous pantsuit.

Bernie is the only one who can and will crush trump because he is the 'real deal' with the 30+ year track record of being pro-worker. He is the only true anti-trump candidate. The rest are Republicrats from one degree or another.

If Bernie is not the nominee, we will be re-trumped.

Have you seriously listened to Tulsi?

As in how many actual videos of her talking, even a rounded figure.

Ditto for Marianne, the brightest bulb in the shed by any conceivable objective standards.

P.S. I do hate it when comments are not answered. If they aren't, why the hell post them? You know I am a great fan of yours, which makes my question all the more relevant, at least for me.

Daniel, you might not wanna get too stressed about that, many times people don't even know that you've questioned them! Sadly, OEN does not have a mechanism that alerts someone to the fact that they have a comment to address.

Hey Daniel,

Sorry, I don't know which comment I didn't answer.

Tulsi is a non-starter with me because she wants to keep the for-profit health insurance parasites as part of the health care 'solution.' They are the problem so they can't be a part of the solution. Private insurance might work elsewhere, but not here, because they are parasites and here they OWN the politicians and won't be regulates as they should be. I used to work for a so-called non-profit health insurance parasite. They are evil.

From her website:

"If you look at other countries in the world who have universal health care, every one of them has some form of a role for private insurance."

Tulsi is new entity, Bernie isn't. That's my point. You know what you're going to get with Bernie. I don't really trust any others. Although I have heard Marianne and do like her, and Tulsi.

But I would sleep well if Tulsi or Marianne became POTUS, but I've been a Bernie guy for years.

Biden will guarantee we are re-trumped.
