Nooooclear POWER

Look, I think we can all agree that Sanders should keep fighting to the bitter end, splitting and enervating the party base, distracting and emptying its war chest for the upcoming fight, and snatching defeat from the jaws of victory not just for Sanders but for the party as a whole.


#3

Well, she won by a landslide in California. On the other hand, my daughter, a first time voter who did everything correctly to register, wasn’t on any list at the polling place and was handed a provisional ballot. Kind of makes me wonder.


#4

Were they ever big backers of his?

What I’m saying is, is this a new opinion of him from them? I was not under the impression that they broke from party establishment.


#5

Superdelegates are an unconstitutional, corrupt system for deciding an election. That’s why my only plan for victory is to convince them to vote against the wishes of the voters and give me the election.


#6

Huh? I believe Moveon is a treasured endorsement of his.


#7

We’re not necessarily discussing different things. You mention a poll of moveon members, I’m discussing the leaders of the organization, those making this statement

One was a direct ask of their members, the more recent is the director speaking as the members.


#8

Moveon seemed to really be all-in for Bernie during the campaign. When they announced the results of the poll, it was pretty clear that it had gone in the direction they had hoped. I’m not sure what evidence you have that the Moveon leaders weren’t really behind Bernie.


#9

I was curious if the leadership had made any statements beyond the poll.


#10

Indict. Ignite my delight. Grinning with spite. Champion, hair white.
The FBI is a repub. When Hilary is closer, her chances he’ll flub.
You think we are losing you think we live a fantasy.
But if you want hail the orange one, then vote Hilary.

In the statement, Sheyman applauded Sanders for revolutionizing “politics as we know it” with his grassroots campaign and insisted that “the policies Bernie has advanced should be included in the Democratic platform.”

Well that’s just the problem now, isn’t it. His policies are so antithetical to what Clinton is all about that they’re much, much more likely to simply be ignored.


#12

Surrealist poetry thread is that way.


#13

Except for most of them that is, which are almost exactly the same. Of course there were a couple of big differences in a few areas, but for the most part they’re on the same page.


#14

I’ve moved on.

To the Greens.


#15

Clinton should offer Bernie the VP slot, that solves all the agony all they way around. If he refuses, then call it a day and “MoveOn”.


#16

I’m impressed by how so many TPM commentors are privy to Bernie’s innermost thoughts and motivations… uncanny


#17

I’m tempted to respond with a simple eye-roll gif, but I’ll say a bit more instead: (their) actions speak louder than (their) words. I’ll add just one illustrative example/contrast: can you honestly imagine Clinton appointing Cornel West to anything?


#18

I don’t see the harm in staying in an waiting for the FBI to weigh in on if any laws were broken in regard to her email server.

If the FBI recommend that she be indicted, then it’s appropriate to contest this race at the convention.


#19

Did MoveOn execs poll the 340,665 members who back Sanders before conveying their beliefs that he should drop out? If not, it’s Congressional Black Caucus all over again.


#20

MoveOn was founded to oppose the call for Bill Clinton’s impeachment over the Monica Lewinsky scandal. They are, and always have been, shills for the Clintons.
