The MSM is propping up Cory Booker despite his weak performances just as they attack Biden at every turn. That tells me the power brokers still want Booker even if he's pretty much torpedoed himself at every turn. Tulsi Gabbard is an interesting case, though. I will not back down from my assertion that the puppet masters will not allow a woman to be POTUS. They're the most misogynistic people on the planet. But they may want her as a VP if it helps their chosen POTUS balance out the ticket and be more sellable. Booker is another Obama, a sham candidate who they created and fabricated and helped every step of the way. A gay POTUS and woman VP, that would sell. Booker and Harris wouldn't sell that well since both are black. And that leaves Warren out, they'll never let her get the nomination.
But looking into Gabbard's past I see the same tell tale signs of "help" that we've seen with Obama, Booker, and others. Meteoric rises to fame and achievement everything seems arranged to help them succeed. So there's no doubt they're owned and controlled. Watch the next generation of puppets being groomed and readied for stardom. One is David Hogg the little brownshirt Nazi from Florida. He's gotten into that diploma mill Harvard as have some other young activists.
Harvard and Yale, nothing more than clown colleges now.

Itís going to cost some their best shot.

I also acknowledge a moderate canít beat Trump.

Trump won by tapping into fear and anger. Itís going to take a revolution of anger to beat Trump.
That much of that agenda is DOA and/ or subject to moderation in Congress does not matter as much as beating Trump.

I am speaking from a strategic standpoint, not my own position which trends moderate.
>>>> It'll take fear anger and stupidity to beat Trump. Or so the progressives think.

What happened far away before she was born makes her anti-Muslim? Should she maybe go back where she came from and fix this mess?

Matched by Bidenís seemingly reference to Booker as the next president.

Reading reviews of the debate.

One of the biggest criticisms of the CNN hosts - -they kept interrupting the candidates...keeping to the time limit

Biggest criticism of the first rounds of debate before.....the hosts didn't interrupt the candidates or keep the candidates to the time limit.

Proof positive -- folks just want to complain.

I am so late to this party!

So much to read, I have only skimmed. But my quick 2 cents is this: it goes without saying that everyone debating hates Tr***. I don't want only hate talk. I don't even want some hate talk. I want what is positive moving forward. The ones who did not dwell on hate are the ones jumping ahead for me.

I want a woman sssoooo badly. I think the US needs a woman- are we not the only country in the first world who has never had a woman?

I am a very educated and professional white woman from an oil and gas family. I am married to a black man from a very educated family, all going to HBCU schools, and living on the "black" side of town. I asked him who would be more repressed in today's world him or me. Even he said that I would be the more discriminated against.

Sad state of affairs in which we find ourselves.

Some families scrimped and saved so that their kids could attend school without debt. Some kids qualified for academic scholarships. Some took the community college route for 2 years before transferring to and commuting to an in-state university to make the most out of their financial resources.

Some chose in demand majors that allowed them to have a choice of careers, upon graduation. Some are more willing than others to relocate to places with better opportunities than their local community.

And some squandered college refunds on stuff that had nothing to do with education.

In 2015, Trump campaigned on government programs to help low income students and debt. As time went on, Trump became more vague and talked about getting government out of the student loan business. It did not square with how lenders are not likely to lend without a government guarantee.
