She should be part of Bernie's Cabinet! This woman is so brilliant and so refined in her analyses. If in the tumult and hostility of today's political scene you sometimes get down and wonder what has happened to the rationality of the American people, tune in to Krystal on YouTube and BE REJUVENATED BY THE TRUTH.

Even though this video was from the night before South Carolina, it is so prescient, I ask you to watch it anyway, to understand how Biden's victory in one state will be SPUN by the networks, the mainstream media, and the Old Guard at the Democratic National Committee, and yet means so little in the context of Super Tuesday and the first vote at the Democratic Convention.

Who is she? Wikipedia:

Krystal Marie Ball (born November 24, 1981) is an American political pundit and journalist who co-hosts Rising with the Hill's Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti, produced by The Hill. She has appeared on Fox News, CNN, CNBC and Real Time with Bill Maher. She was previously a contributor under contract for MSNBC and a regular contributor to the HuffPost.

Ball was the Democratic Party nominee for Congress in Virginia's 1st congressional district in the 2010 election, losing to Republican incumbent Rob Wittman. She co-hosted the MSNBC show The Cycle from June 2012 to July 2015. In May 2017, she created the People's House Project, a political action committee working on behalf of Democratic causes.

Ball has appeared on Fox News, CNN, and CNBC, and was a contributor under contract for MSNBC. She was a regular contributor to the HuffPost. From June 25, 2012 to July 31, 2015, Ball co-hosted the MSNBC show, The Cycle, with Toure', Steve Kornacki, and S. E. Cupp. Interviewed by Jill Filipovic she explained how she launched into a new career as a political commentator on television. One of her most discussed monologues on the show was a 2014 critique of Hillary Clinton which urged her not to run for President.

Ball's first book Reversing the Apocalypse: Hijacking the Democratic Party to Save the World was published in 2017, in which she argued that the Democratic Party needed to return to its New Deal roots by emulating Franklin D. Roosevelt and advocating a more economically interventionist agenda than it has done in recent decades.

In 2018, Ball started hosting a webcast called Rising on The Hill. She originally co-hosted the webcast with Buck Sexton, but Sexton was later replaced by Saagar Enjeti. Ball's second book, co-authored with Enjeti, is The Populist's Guide to 2020: A New Right and New Left Are Rising, released on February 8, 2020.

Ball is married to Jonathan Dariyanani, and they have three children. She was a Senior Fellow of the New Leaders Council. Interviewing Jamie Kilstein about masculinity in crisis she described herself as a feminist.

Krystal might be an excellent VP candidate, in more ways than one!

Imagine that, Democrats should return to their FDR roots, especially after the Depression of 2008, which continues to send after shocks through our nation and politics.

But Uncle Joe, speaking in South Carolina last night, said the people he represents don't want too much from government, implying the pushy FDR-loving crowd is living in a dream world.

Where have all the FDR Democrats gone? To Wall Street? Banks? Or other cushy positions that let them tell regular folk to remain realistic and moderate.

I really like the way you put it in your overview! But not too despair: SUPER TUESDAY is almost here. Then we get a big and accurate picture of what America really wants.
