    I wonder how many would've worked in the private sector if their dads left them 400 million dollars and a real estate empire?

    The majority lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are former lawyers who become politicians. Lawyers are not productive workers (they don't produce value) or innovators. Why do you seem to hold them in high 'private sector' esteem?

    The title of the thread should be amended to Democratic 2020 Suicide Watch after today's event.

    Bloomberg took shots at this stuff recently...
    Bloomberg Takes a Swipe at Beto’s White-Privilege “Apology Tour”

    But he realizes the primary would eat him alive in the current climate.

    To be clear, there's some fucked up things about Anita Hill's treatment. Imagining that it is part of "white man's culture" as some identifying streak is divisive and suggests that Anita Hill, in a class/power differential against noted white man Clarence Thomas, would have received a more fair hearing with some non-white faces holding the hearing. Anita Hill would have only received a completely fair hearing if she had been at Thomas' level sociopolitically, and that wasn't gonna happen in 1991 no matter the race of those involved.

    both are too far Left, they'll invigorate the Right's base. I picked Booker, even though his recent comments on attacking the NRA might move some voters, but probably not in any battleground states.

    I would have picked Delaney, because he's running a very early and personal campaign, but I don't think he gets over the Catholic Hurdle.

    Once the race picks up, Kirsten Gillibrand will move to the front. Fairly centrist, she's a Hillary Clinton - without all the baggage.

    Good point about the Hill/Thomas hearings.. I can't believe Bloomberg along with the Starbucks guy have been making so much sense lately. I can't remember if Bloomberg said Beto or Biden basically apologized for being White. How can you even get up in the morning hating your skin color so much you have to say sorry fam. Crazy times we live in...

    Bernie is too old and Tulsi is not left enough to win the nomination. Booker is gay and Delaney is a weird looking bald guy. Gillibrand is the biggest fucking fake I've ever seen. She was basically a Conservative Democrat as a House Rep in upstate New York who even had an A rating by the NRA if I remember correctly and now she's basically a walking/talking Planned Parenthood/BLM/La Raza/LGBTQ123ABC billboard...

    Exactly the point on Gillibrand - checks off enough boxes for the Progressive identity polictics, and won't rile up the MAGA voters.

    Some debate question to ask democrat candidates

    Have you ever falsely identified your race on any official document?

    Should babies who survive abortions be allowed to live, or do you consider it a mother’s choice whether her child is killed or not, even after birth?

    Should congressional sexual-harassment payments be made public?

    Should military veterans get preference over immigrants, legal or illegal, in the public housing system?

    Was U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders treated fairly by the Democratic Party during the 2016 primary campaign?

    Should vaccines be mandatory?

    Two of you up on stage are known plagiarists — Joe Biden and Warren. Have any of the rest of you ever plagiarized anything?

    Should a politician who appears in blackface, or in full Ku Klux Klan regalia, resign from office, even if it means he will be replaced by a Republican?

    How did Venezuela go from the richest country in South America to the poorest in 30 years? Could the catastrophe possibly be related to the embrace of socialism by that nation’s last two dictators?

    Many Democrats have said that all women should be believed when they report sexual harassment or assault by men. Juanita Broaddrick has accused Bill Clinton of raping her — should she be believed?

    Please raise your hand if as president you would order the removal of existing walls on the southern border.

    In order to fight climate change, will you pledge to never again fly on a private jet during this campaign?
    What crimes should be deportable offenses for an illegal immigrant? Drunk driving? Rape? Murder? Kidnapping? Animal abuse? Drug trafficking? Fraud?

    Shit just got #MeToo real:

    Elizabeth Warren Says She Believes Lucy Flores' Account Of Joe Biden's Unwanted Kiss

    So Pocahontas turns on Creepy Uncle Joe for gettin #MeToo'd.
    So exciting. Gonna be even more exciting that Repugs 2016 bloodbath.

    But Joe should be okay, right? I mean ..... he has 30 more #MeToo's to go before he matches the current occupant of the White House's number, so now that i think about it - maybe he better get a'groping if he wants to actually win...

    Joe Biden remains the best chance for the Dems to win.

    In the midst of the #MeToo movement, I don't see Joe as standing a chance.
    I can't see the Bilderbergs green-lighting him to represent the democrats.

    I don't know most of these characters, but I'm sure they all suck.
    This is a throwaway election.
