More Hillary Distraction

As I understand it, at least at this point, Hillary Clinton and the DNC made a deal to share contributions.  The deal was offered to Hillary and Bernie, but Bernie declined, probably because he didn't want to share with the DNC, not being a Democrat and all.  Or, maybe he knew he just wasn't going to raise as much money as Hillary, at first anyway. Whatever.  The deal wasn't illegal. So, Trump can stop calling for an FBI investigation.

I suspect that if Bernie had agreed to the fund-sharing, he would now be claiming he didn't get as much out of the deal as Hillary.  I don't know this, of course, but it seems to be the way things are going.

I also suspect that the media has cherry-picked this from Donna Brazile's book in order to do some more Tsk-Tsk-Tsk-ing at Hillary, as they have done since the 1990's. I'm not going to read the book to find out.

It's not that I am all that crazy about Hillary as the candidate. I was one Democrat who was telling everyone I didn't think she should run because she had too much baggage.  And, I thought she would be much more effective as a Senator, for a much longer time.  We'll never know if I was right.

At any rate, it is obvious that the DNC needs a complete overhaul. They have had problems for a while, now, and if they don't get busy, we're going to have to suffer the Comrade Trump until at least 2020, and possibly 2024. It makes cold chills run up and down my spine.

And, imagine how much damage the Republicans can do by 2024 if they stay in the majority. Having NO checks and balances in our government is the pits.

The DNC needs some new rules and some new blood.  As much as I love Joe Biden, he's just too old to be running for president, and, Elizabeth Warren is too abrasive.  She's better off where she is, too, whether she knows it or not.

It seems to me that the Democrats are two entities - the DNC and the rest of the Democrats throughout the country.  It has always seemed that way to me.  The DNC  is made up of the "insiders" and the rest of us are just waiting to see what we will have to vote for in the next election.I think we need some Democratic leaders who come from the masses of ordinary Democrats.

And, we need a better slogan than "A Better Deal."

Stay tuned.

The Democrats do need a change of some kind. You would think that crying out Hillary being the Republican major defense strategy would indicate a huge bonus for the Democrats. The fact that it doesn't seem to -- that alone -- shows the need for a big change. Leadership, direction, marketing? Maybe all and more.

BTW, I never thought of Elizabeth Warren as abrasive which probably says more about me than it does about her.


we need more yellowdog democrats than bluedog democrats..and if only Biden had ran.
