28. She called him out on the debate, I can go do the research which was equivalent to Bidens jab

 

with a chuckle. She called him out yesterday about releasing health records, today about yelling and not doing. Once again, Warren is doing the heavy lifting while people demand (not you) that she does more, as the others do not pull their weight. I think it is working for Warren. But, we ought to be calling out the other three about going after Sanders, equally.

And, of course, I cheer this call out.

Brutal.

Bernies volatility is his biggest problem.

Even personally, his BP must be thru the roof.

10. Actually his blood pressure is like a 20 yo's

 

He recently released most of his medical records and his BP is like an active runner's. I was seriously surprised to learn that.

4. I hope Warren is able to get traction after the last debate. One thing, it is looking more and more

 

like no candidate will have sufficient delegates going into the Convention to secure the nomination on the first ballot, which will set off the process of a brokered Convention.

That usually is not a good thing for a political party, and increases the potential for a very divided Convention

If we do have a brokered Convention, which candidate would emerge from that as our nominee?

19. I think Warren might stand a chance at the VP slot in a brokered convention...

 

She appeals to the left wing of the party while being pragmatic. A VP nod will be a great attempt at bringing a fractured party together.

21. Very true, and the reason why I like her.

 

In some ways -- her wit, intelligence, humor, personal relating to voters -- she reminds me of a modern JFK. He, too, was "radical" enough to want universal health coverage.

She has principles, but is not rigidly ideological. She knows how to work with people. She knows when and how to stand her ground, and when and how to bend to achieve goals.

7. One candidate yells.

 

The other DOES!

Did Bernie create a federal agency literally from scratch?

Did he ever even have a full-time job before he was finally elected Mayor of Burlington at age 40?

Is he a widely recognized and respected expert on financial matters?

Warren is the REAL DEAL. Bernie just is not.

There's the BIG difference.

9. I hope this strategy pays off.

 

I have my doubts. Going aggressive gave Kamala Harris a short-lived bounce, but it wasn't enough.

18. At this point she has nothing to lose

 

She is way down in the polls and if she does not do something drastic, her campaign could be over in less than 2 weeks.

23. With her, you get something much better

 

than Sanders. You get a real Democrat instead of a pseudo-Dem. You get someone who can get things done instead of just talking about what's wrong.

You get principles instead of opportunism.

You get someone who can successfully work within the system for change instead of someone who wants to blow the system up.

15. Sometimes that's exactly what's necessary to get things moving.

 

I've yelled at people and apologized later. Sometimes that's what's needed to break up a logjam and get shit done.

16. There it is. "Get things done"

 

This is where BS fails; his record in Congress suggests that he doesn't work that well with others to get things done, while Warren's record says that she can.
