The DNC 'allowing' someone to run for president?

I'm sorry, what country is this again? Zimbabwe? Chad?

Reading comprehension 101: I said "to run as a DEMOCRAT".

I do hope it can be civil. I mean Sander supporters need to realize that he won't win the nomination and change our focus/energy to what if Bernie doesn't run Independent what the 8 year plan is. How in 8 year's can we change Congress and elect a young Democratic thinker like Bernie into Office.

Like I said before, "Clinton should ignore Sanders and let the chips fall where they may"!

Spinning wheels. An appropriate description of the Obama administration.

Bernie was the voice nerfed change. Hillary will keep the status quo and having a Democrat in Charge will help. As well as having a Democratic Congress filled with Democrats/Leaning Independent Democrats allow Sanders to build a PAC. Goal will be change Congress with a far left Majority and Leader of the House. Also a strong Liberal Supreme Court.

Look at it as Obama is the cannon ball, Bernie is the gunpowder, Hillary is the cannon to put the ball and powder in, and after 8 year's of Hillary the spark of change will ignite.
I can only chuckle.

Are you going to accept higher taxes to pay for our messes in Syria and Libya?

I just hope the videos of Bernie supporters disrespecting Sen Boxer are shown all over California where she is respected for being a very progressive leader. For 33 years she fought for liberal causes and probably would have been re-elected. Shame of them.
DWS is not pleased with Sanders' response:



And on CNN, noted leftist Van Jones says DWS's response was not appropriate and his phone was blowing up.

Then KY SOS, noted Clinton supporter, calls it unofficially for Hillary on CNN, and Sanders' supporters go nuts on Twitter.

Democrats are getting to be so much fun.

Comprehension.

Adding the democrat part doesn't change the response. You've lost your democracy when only approved people can realistically run for president or other office.
