Trump is hoping for Bernie, Biden, Buttigieg or Warren. Each has weaknesses (age, inexperience or liberal agenda ripe for exploitation in a mainstream election.  Klobuchar has none of those weaknesses;  the incumbent needs to be presented a challenger who is not easily dismissed. Her work in has led to the passage of an impressive number of bills, even as the partisan divide has deepened. In 2018 she won reelection with dozens of conservative-leaning counties that had gone for Trump 2 years earlier, when Hillary Clinton barely beat him in Minnesota. Klobuchar, a former prosecutor, has never lost an election.

[Founded in 1863, the paper was best known for conservative political opinions of its late publisher, William Loeb, and his wife, Elizabeth Scripps 'Nackey' Loeb. Famously, the paper helped to derail the candidacy in 1972 of U.S. Senator Edmund Muskie of Maine,]

What load of garbage. Klobuchar has no charisma, no crowds, no strong organization. The DNC may think it can do the job, but they failed with Hillary and they will fail with any centrist. I am becoming convinced that this will become a battle between Bloomberg and Sanders. Warren, Biden, Klobuchar and Buttigieg are going to quickly fade away.


The one thing I love is that with two Jews leading the race, it will make white Supremacists heads explode.

Not challenging your prognosis, but one key distinction to point out is the squirrely New Hampshire Union Leader is completely removed from the DNC, and if you look into their long weird history, this Klobuchar endorsement is nothing new, albeit very surprising in any case.

Really, Rob. Neither of them goes around sporting yarmulkes. What my first comment about Klobuchar that raised a flag was how difficult she was to work for, and her grating voice. Hot temper, apparently.

What a team though, Bernie and Bloomberg! I can hear them now, having one of those crazy Jewish yelling arguments ala SNL!

What the DNC has to do is stop pushing Biden, like he's the answer to anything. I think Tulsi is so decorative, who wouldn't want to contemplate her visage for eight years, after fatso under the pee-colored rug with the old lady's labia under his chin?

I want to see the CABINET, as I keep saying, that host of should-be pros so absent from the present. Then quite a few of the other candidates would fill in nicely. A team. That's what we need.

The DNC will keep at it, long after it should have been obvious how destructive and self destructive their actions are.


Some of the more principled ones, and I am really speaking of a former US Senator from New Mexico who was a superdelegate, all believe that they are right, that they have the high moral road, and that Sanders is outside of THEIR loop. They are now changing their tune, and I have high hopes, but there is absolutely no room for error when it comes to these matters.


This is my recent Quicklink and I would tear into it as an article but I don't have much more to add than is in the original article which appeared in The Medium. You really must read the whole thing, soon; it is quite alarming.


The DNC is Getting Ready For a Contested Convention, and So Should Bernie's Base.

That article killed some brain cells. I had no fear, but I should not have tread there. Tanks a knot, Mr. Fox.

1. I am not sure what you mean in this comment.


2. I hope you read and comment on my really important one today, which is what Shaun King had to say after his extensive and exhaustive research. I think it is a brilliant article, personally, and we should get it all over the South, especially starting with South Carolina and the other states making up Super Tuesday. Please share that article:
