I missed part of it to take a call. Did Marianne Williamson make the white audience members apologize to black audience members for being white?

Tim Ryan - enlarge Medicare to age 50. (I don't like that...it'll screw up Medicare, which is already struggling. It relies on people paying into it for decades.)
Except for some immigrants who put in the minimum or close to it.

So having goals is great, having plans for those goals is great and voters want to hear it, but in reality, a party's plans for one-party goals can't be passed when two parties control Congress. So....a wish list. It tells voters the candidate's thoughts, and what each candidate would want to do, if it could be done in the real world. And what the candidate would strive for.
What is too far left about destroying private equity firms from burying companies in debt and then shortchanging investors who buy into the deal anyways because investment firms buy faulty loans as a self industry?

The truth is the reason politics is so stringent is because of how Americans are taught to view politics. All policy must promote corporate growth and job investment.

That is where the Obama/Clinton democrat comes from, social policies that promote corporate investment like the ACA.

To change that we need someone he undoes our political dynamics or else this "it can't be done' mentality will be controlled by corporations who push this country further away from average workers and towards the hands of financial managers.

No, but she was the best.

She talked about making DC worry about social well being and not just increasing GDP and economic growth.

The left for decades has been trapped explaining why tax and spend increases private business activity. Now they can move beyond tax and spend to structural reform on how capital is managed and by who.

The only reason I think he's doing so well in the polls is his name - it's one of only a few that people recognize.

My guess (today - it could change next month) is that the nominee will be Kamala.
Name recognition and appeal to more moderates and Independents who are not likely going to go waaay left of Obama.

I recall the Biden vs Ryan debate in 2012. Biden was so goofy he threw Ryan way off his game.

He's most likely gonna be out of the race if he doesn't do well tonight.
His heavy makeup made him look like a corpse. Reparations- wth?!

She certainly has asked whites in audience members to apologize to black audience members in the past.

Delaney and Ryan with a nod to Klobuchar were very solid but don’t have “ it”.

Mayor Pete has a future in politics. Maybe a Senator or Governor.

Beto needs to go home.

Hope Maryanne remains in the mix, just because.
