Can someone explain to me, I have read that the DNC emails are supposed to show they favored Hillary over Bernie, but I haven't been able to find anywhere what they actually DID to give the nomination to Hillary. Were there actual illegal/immoral actions by them (I know they're supposed to be neutral, but still doesn't add up to me)
Avatar    Fri. 7/29/16 9:17am Doug Schulkind:

You might do well to follow Robert Reich's advice: get Trump out of the way, immediately start building up a new party (I won't say third, that implies too few parties...) that is basically the Democratic Socialists that Bernie didn't have in place to run with.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/29/16 9:23am listener james from westwood:

@Webmaster Henry: A couple of speakers urged downballot voting. That's where such a push for a new party has to start, where it can make systemic changes needed to sustain non R and D candidates.
@Doug: That would be delicious. Would love to see Reid rusticated. Lotsa open space in Nevada for him. The Laxalts could recommend a nice ranch somewhere.

THAT would give him clout; probably more than if he was president with a hostile congress.

@ndbob
If Bernie doesn't have the skills to be Majority Leader, he sure as shoot doesn't have the skills to be in the oval office. Politically, I am more closely aligned to Bernie than any presidential candidate in my lifetime. But I feared that his presidency would have been a disaster that would have damaged and set back progressivism for generations.

But this is all moot. There is only one sane, rational choice. In my opinion.

@ausmax I'm not going to get into that @Doug - I agree about Bernie as president - decent man - with many ideas I support - but not a leader
Avatar    Fri. 7/29/16 9:42am Doug Schulkind:

Bernie has already done a remarkable thing for the Democrats and for our country. Hillary was forced to tack left and address income inequality in a way she never would have otherwise. Now her presidency will be beholden to the left. This in turn stretches the center back to the center from where it had drifted rightward for years. For this, Bernie is a hero. Occupy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/29/16 9:47am doctorjazz:

Absolutely, Hillary is so left of Bill now, it's really interesting. Of course, that is what folks disliked about her in the first place, her positions do shift. But, man, I don't think the politicians locked into their ideology move anything forward, that's been the gridlock of the past, oh, maybe 20 years, starting with Newt.

You aren't seriously making any sort of judgment about "our times" based on a comments board.

"Left" and "Right" are just stories we tell ourselves. They are fictions. Meanwhile, we live in a real world with real consequences resulting from our choices. To see Hillary as anything other than an alternative to President Trump is, in my opinion, foolish.

Bernie was my mayor and Bernie was my candidate.

i don't dismiss what people put on the comments board, doug. i think the folks are quite serious about what they are posting here. Pasolini's point is simply about human behaviour and political behaviour, and there are manifestations of that. i personally think it's foolish to expect of Hillary anything better than President Trump if you live anywhere else in the world, especially in Palestine, Eastern Europe, Russia, China, etc, where she will unquestionably be a disaster

I sit here and silent sob in my office as I listen to Ms. Hamer speak. Although this is 42 years ago I feel there is still some pertinence what she is saying maybe not at the scale that she exposes here but it still exists. I look at the "times" as they are and have been for the last 60 + years and continue to have to come to conclusion that I really don't want to come to. That we as a species as whole (not as individuals) have failed. We take on a conceited stance that we hold abilities and mindsets that our actions have proven time and time again we do not. I live with a constant want to have the utmost faith in my species but I have seen nothing to make me believe we almost have no hope but to live in this consistent negative loop. Believe me this is not a feeling of cynicism and flavor of the month pessimism. I want to be wrong I don't want us to fail but I come to find it very hard to find any positive in us on a larger level of whole and most of my happiness with the human race comes from the direct action I have with people but I really don't see on the scale of taking all of our actions as an overall species and comparing them good v bad that we have much to be proud of to put in our history books in the present and recent past.

@Jeff Golick I honestly believe that a post revolution world is going to not look much different than it does now at least in the western world. The changes will come in how the day to day activities in politics and "order keeping" will change. Any true uprising again in the "western developed world" will be quashed pretty quickly and use as an example for creating a protective Totalitarianism bringing more of the actions being done covertly now out to the fore under the guise of protection and safety.

This here.

Final "political" thought: at the risk of seeming overly naive or simplistic. one thing I think is sorely needed and in ever-dwindling supply is empathy. In a "conversation" focused on "winners" and "losers," us/them conflicts, etc., it becomes impossible to imagine POVs other than one's own. We're distracted, tired, joylessly consuming the minutes...how to dredge up the generosity of spirit required to find the common humanity in us all?

On politics: I loved the statement by Bloomberg at the DNC, "I'm a New Yorker and I know a con when I see one." And, "let's elect a sane, competent person." Nuff said. Sanity and competence must count for something, right? And isn't it about time a woman was elected to the post?

Hi, Hugo!

Wikipedia:
"Everlasting Love" is a song written by Buzz Cason and Mac Gayden, originally a 1967 hit for Robert Knight and since remade several times, most successfully by the Love Affair, Carl Carlton and Sandra. In 1989, U2 released a version of "Everlasting Love" as a B-side on various formats of the "All I Want Is You" single.
