I do think that Inslee had an impact on the current dialogue about climate change and that we should be grateful for

Honestly it's all about how the messaging is on climate change....I think there is an effort to make these statements that "we'll make more jobs and money" when in fact the best approach if for everyone to sacrifice a little (or maybe even a lot) ...and Americans are really not that good at that, we pride ourselves on our gluttony

Maybe he'll become the Head of the EPA or a good cabinet position(yes we gotta win first)
The candidates had much nicer things to say about him compared to Swalwell exit

he stood out from all the other old white dudes...to me at least

Agreed, both about his impact and the messaging.  I think we had some candidates that already recognized climate as the issue of our time, but not enough really treated it as an existential threat.  I'm glad his voice and focus on it kind of made it hard to not shift the focus a bit, though it still seems like an add-on to some of these folks.  messaging-wise, though, it's hard...I think it's a really easy thing to convey exactly how climate crisis can impact anyone (i mean, without hyperbole it affects every aspect of our lives) and I think the folks that treat it accordingly do a good job of pointing that out.  But you need a media willing to treat it as a serious thing, and they flat out refuse. Not that I think Inslee would've won, but I think given the proper attention, he would've gone further.

His impact with the average American was zero

Twitterverse or politicalheads are not America

The guy was barely registering in the polls and we want to say he had impact? Maybe negative impact

I didn't say the voter...I meant on the platforms of the candidates and what was being discussed
correct...99% of the US didn't even know he was running

I know I'm biased (and obviously he's the best), but he's had a serious week: killer criminal justice reform, Workplace Democracy plan and now this.

Today I announce my $88 quintillion climate change plan


About as credible and relevant....Bernie will never be president but he can damn well make sure, again, Trump is

Democrats with a chance to win the nomination would be wise to hold off announcing grandiose spending plans lest Trump use it against them in the general

The only one I tear down is Bernie because he is not a Democrat and with the help of bozos like you got Trump elected

Saying someone is barely registering is not tearing them down...just fact

Saying someone helped elect Trump and isnít even a Democrat is tearing them down

I 100% agree on this...
The only one I tear down is Bernie because he is not a Democrat
and this...
I think this is going to be Bernie's problem...he's got very few friends and allies in the Democratic party as he's made a career distancing himself from them
Unless he pulls a Trump and changes the whole Democratic establishment...he's never going to get their support

Hickenlooper says he's running for Senate

also
Per AP, Inslee will announce he's seeking a 3rd term as governor.
