Has the Democratic party has found their version of John Kasich? As an old white guy he has a tough row to hoe this year... Diversity and anger will get all the attention from the MSM.

A smart guy, and a "real" self made billionaire. Unlike the "orange blubber baby".

goob - Do you have a problem with diversity in the Democratic Party as opposed to a mostly homogeneous GOP?

I'm looking forward to hearing from Steyer. I generally like different, and being outside of Washington still has appeal to me - even though in some people's view the current President's lack of political experience might be a negative for any other "outsiders". Even though it is not where my positions lie, I'm not automatically against far left views, it depends on the implementation and execution really. So at this point, I am anticipating his entrance into the debates more than hearing more from any of the other existing candidates.

I did donate Delaney $20.20 last go around to help him out a little, hope he makes it into the next round.

Back to the question of where Harris would be in the polls, an NBC/WSJ poll I saw today had her 3rd with Biden and Harris ahead of her and I think she was in 5th in terms of 2nd qrt fund raising.

I wouldn't put too much stock in the polls.

Biggest mistake they can make?...Nominating another "older" hard liner in Joe Biden. Obama won with youth and change, everything Biden is not.

I predict right now that Kamala Harris will be the nominee and that she will talk HC into being her V.P.


Big V, I agree that this is laughable, but in a different way.
If Kamala Harris gets by with voters knowing she is a descendant of Hamilton Brown, who owned a Jamaican sugar plantation. and quite a few slaves.

An account of the treatment of his slaves is recorded in a pamphlet named "Three Months In Jamaica"

My guess is that this will not escape the President come debate day

I'd also like to say that I believe none of the candidates would choose Clinton as a Vice Presidential running mate.

My feeling is that they would probably like to serve out their term.

Kamala Harris as accused by Rep. Tulsi Gabbard:

In February, California Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered new DNA testing in the 1983 murder case of Kevin Cooper. Cooper came within hours of execution in 2004 after being charged with the murders of an adult couple and two children. Harris opposed the testing when she was the state’s attorney general.

She has since said she supports DNA testing and encouraged Newsom to approve Cooper’s clemency request. She did not offer specifics on why she did not approve the testing during her tenure.

In response to a request for comment, Harris’s campaign pointed to a past statement where the senator called a New York Times columnist last year, telling him, “I feel awful about this.”

Another claim against Harris — this time, by former vice president Joe Biden — that a federal judge freed 1,000 inmates after it discovered that a San Francisco crime lab had misused evidence, and that then-District Attorney Harris had failed to reveal that the evidence had possibly been tainted.

The Washington Post recalled earlier this year: “It was revealed in March 2010 that Harris and her staff had not informed defense lawyers that evidence from the police-run crime lab might have been tainted. A judge ruled in May 2010 that Harris had failed to inform defendants as required by law. Harris said … she took responsibility and made ‘no excuses’ for the failure.”

Harris is now running on a platform that includes criminal justice reform and she says she opposes the death penalty.

I'm on a few of the email lists, only open a couple occasionally. I do find it interesting the angles the candidates take in their messages. Bernie is always playing the underdog card, and surprisingly he seems to be taking the "we are behind, other candidates are out fund raising us" - I just thought he might try and come across as "we are succeeding, more and more people are backing our message".

On the other hand, some of the dark horse candidates come out and broadcast their support (or atleast that is what they are saying).

Tulsi says that she has just "blown past" the 130,000 unique donor requirement for the September debate.

I only watched the first hour of the first debate last week. Busy.
