Hate to discourage participation on this board as it's been getting dismal at times...
but, this was mentioned a few weeks back
and you of all people I thought would have noticed a post with a sexy mash tun with wood sides

I had a dream of beato putting a half-pipe in the rose garden

and Hickenlooper might put one of these in the lincoln bedroom

and Bill Weld is going to try to take trump out in the primaries...bold, but up hill with 80% approval by republicans

yesterday bill weld made it official.  there is a difference between saying you're going to do something, and actually throwing your hat in the ring.  besides, the sexiness of that MT ensured that few people made it past the image and down to your BW statement/conjecture.

However, state law allows a political party to request that voters sign a pledge or statement of party affiliation before casting primary ballots.

"request", not "force".

I stand corrected...I thought it was official on feb 15th...but it was official that an exploratory committee would be started....4/15 it was officially announced he was running

SC is already trying to make it so there will be no GOP primary
GOP is a fall in line kind of team and they are not going to put up with internal insurgency
Even if he appeals to GOP voters, the internal org is going to try to make it as difficult as possible

yeah the curves on that bad boy and the shining stainless steel do distract...almost pornographic in it's presentation

I hate focusing on fundraising


Who cares?

Hillary raised way more than Trump


Howard Dean outraised everyone as did Bernie Sanders


It’s just a game political consultants and political media people play to profit and the joke is on you

I agree...was more of a dig on Jules than anything substantive

Its not Julian For The Now, its Julian For The Future. Wait and see his bank account in 2 years.

I agree he has the best name recognition in the race.

in this country, money is speech.  "vote with your dollars". 

fundraising is used as a proxy for polling.

I am glad I donated a fair amount to Hillary during the presidential campaign and canvassed for her but the reality is my $ went to some political consultant’s bank account and I could have done a better job advising her..

I can sleep at night knowing I tried my hardest to help Hillary win

They WANT to convince you donating to campaigns matters so you donate...but it’s a racket

money isn't every thing...both Hil and Jeb can tell you from direct experience
but it's pretty much one of the most important things, without it....you are Julian for the Future

also when people donate, they put skin in the game and they they are also motivated to get others involved to get return on their investment.  I gotta imagine it motivated you a little more than before you gave

I truly wish we could take money out of politics, this citizens united and super pac crap is really a much bigger problem than grifting  money from some schmuck from Arlington that donated less than one comma for an election

but then again, what the F do I know...I post about politics on a regional music board

Oh yeah, agreed...any article by these chuds that give Dems "advice" should be balled up and thrown into the toilet.  But I don't see much here about wanting Bernie to win...just that he's an actual contender.
