The rumor mill grinds on

    1. It’s distressing, to say the least. I don’t want it to come down to a fight at the convention. I want to go marching in there with an obvious, strong leading candidate, someone who represents the entire party.

      1. Sometimes I think the 2 Parties have agreed to take turns running the country.
        Rumors of brokered convention started up a few weeks ago. (So you vote doesn’t really count….they do the choosing…)
        I don’t think Bernie’s followers are not going to go down easy this time.

  1. I have the same dilemma and I’m afraid my first choice (Mayor Pete) hasn’t a chance.  Even worse, I’m afraid the eventual nominee will be the one who promises the most free  things.  Like healthcare, lower drug prices (with no explanation of how), higher minimum pay – (Hey, they can always print more money), etc., etc.

    I’d like simple steps. 
    Prosecution of those who fail gun purchase background checks.
    A path to citizenship for immigrants.
    Easier (quicker) asylum verification without separating parents and children indefinitely.
    Allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices and pay for legitimate foreign made drugs.

    Pogo had it right.

    1. You and I know there’s no such thing as free stuff. But those with their hands out don’t care as long as they aren’t the ones paying.

      I like Mayor Pete too. I wish he were a little older, but it’s obvious that he’s well educated, well spoken, thoughtful, and concerned about his country. Whether this year or sometime in the future, I hope we continue to see him in government.

      I like your simple steps. Stepwise change has always seemed to me the most logical way to proceed.

  2. Personally, I’ve always like Hillary. But I don’t think for one second that she wants back into that rat race. No way does she want to listen to “Lock Her Up!” for another entire campaign season. She has her grandbaby and I’m sure she’s hoping for more in the near future. No. She has about as much interest in jumping back into this as I do jumping off the Eiffel Tower without a parachute.

    1. I do think it’s just an unsubstantiated rumor, but I don’t doubt for a second her political ambitions. Decades ago she didn’t want to be known as someone who just stayed home baking cookies, and I don’t think that’s changed.

... and that's my two cents
