I think it adds very little to Bernie but it helps AOC position herself to inherit the Bernie bloc support once he indubitably loses

But it probably does help stem the bleeding to the Bernie campaign and gets him a good headline so in that sense itís helpful

Ro Khanna and Patrick Leahy have endorsed him.
Ok yes, the other senator from his state.  Leahy has been in congress for almost as long as I've been alive (and I'm old as dirt), but a legit endorsement, I think I already knew about
Ro, had never heard of him before, but makes a good squad member at first glance
Still pretty weak dem party support in general and IMO is going to be a big liability for his campaign
So I do think it's less the media is trying to cancel him, the DNC definitely is

until now, the high profile of the Squad is good and I agree they are the next generation of the Democratic party with out a doubt
I do think he has to appeal to item C in your list, in the end, as that is his kind of voter.  Unfortunately, it's less about policy and substance when it comes to a lot of voters


I agree with your assessment of Mayor Pete, but we need people like that in the Dem party...just not for the top job
He's going to be a player for years to come and this is just good marketing for a long career as a democrat on the national stage
He should probably go for Governor

Some fun facts about Pete Sessions...ya know the one that Rudy's Fraud Guarantee Goon Squad was funneling money to get him to get Yovanovitch fired

Peter Sessions (R) served in the U.S. House of Representatives for 11 terms in TX 32nd District
He was defeated for re-election by Democrat Colin Allred in 2018 #bluewave

How's this for some bad timing
10/3/19, Sessions announced that he is running for Texas's 17th district in the 2020 election (note not same one that he served 11 terms)
10/9/19 Les and Igor arrested at Dulles and details of their financial ties come to the national spotlight

I'm really surprised that the Sessions hasn't announced he is no longer running yet...any takers on when that will happen


This by far is the best fun fact

In March 2016, Sessions introduced a House resolution to "recognize magic as a rare and valuable art form and national treasure."


This guy really needs some Magic now!

wow...in all the insane news this week  Tulsi went full on bonkers and forgot what team she was on

Tulsi Gabbard @TulsiGabbard
Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton
. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a ...
... concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know ó it was always you, through your proxies and ...
... powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.
Itís now clear that this primary is between you and me. Donít cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.

I am no Tusli fan, but HRC's comments about her are INSANE. It's basically Qanon for liberals.

EDIT: I'll be charitable and say "HRC's comments that seemed to be directed at Tusli". I guess she could've meant Marianne...

Not going to argue that

But Tg kind of made a fool of herself before, during and now after the debate
Her true colors are shining through

It was always appealing that she was a hot Hindi surfer from HI, who served a tour ....but the more she spoke the less I liked her

It was a bright spot to me how she went after Kamala on her awful record but otherwise Tulsi's bad news. And its pretty fitting that she immediately ran to Tucker to air her grievances lol.

But shouldn't everyone be furious at Clinton for sowing discord among Dems and giving Trump ammo for the general? What about party unity? What about Vote Blue No Matter Who?  ;D

Not sure if serious, but this might be a real concern if Tulsi was polling at anything higher than 1%. Itís a vanity campaign.

If she debated in a bikini, her support would double.
