Time


But Clinton and Sanders camps are still at odds on debate details The Democratic National Committee on Sunday agreed to sanction more debates, including one hosted by MSNBC in New Hampshire later this week, if the candidates agree on the details.


Let's see how this plays out with Hillary in full on spin and manipulation mode. Still I can't imagine they won't come to an agreement to which I say: woohoo!

I think this has more to do with the Hillary slide as well as massive initial support to Debbie Wassermann-Schultz's challenger for he seat in Congress, than it has to do with the DNC suddenly remembering their voters. But I'll take it.

This is a bit surprising considering the DNC has done everything it can to make the debates unwatchable.

Looks like a cushion in case Hillary gets trumped by Bernie.

It's a "PlanB" by the Hillary/Debbie Committee for justice in debate.

Interesting to see if the first one will be held during the Superbowl.

I'm actually not... for the reasons I stated above. I just wasn't sure if she would respond to the voters or go with the assumption that hillary would win and give her a cabinet position.

Meh, Bernie is going to win outright.
Seriously...
Maybe I should post this in dreams and predictions, but with Clinton facing near Iran-Contra type shizz..she'll be pardoned by Obama just as all the Iran-Contra stooges were pardoned by Bush...same hashtag different day.

Honestly, I'm not so sure if this is a good move for Bernie. I know he & O'Malley want more debates. And I know a lot of people on the left want more debates so we can counter the constant media exposure Trump & the Repubs are getting.

But I also know that Hillary is shrewd & is a tough opponent. And she has no problems pulling every dirty trick in the book. In other words, I'm firmly expecting Hillary, the DNC, and the other "Third Way" Dems to use the additional debates to tear Bernie's plans apart, specifically with how to finance them and his seeming lack of a foreign policy. Besides, I think Bernie's got her on the ropes. Not that she's about to lose or drop out, but in the sense that he has all of the momentum & enthusiasm. And I only see those increasing even if he lost Idaho & New Hampshire, because people support his message and want an actual left wing candidate.

I really think the small amount of debates is backfiring on Hillary & Wasserman. The old tactics of attacking socialism & linking it to communism have only backfired. So now, the Democratic powerbrokers are going to need more time to try to convince Democratic voters that socialism is bad. And they'll need more time to convince voters that Bernie's plan will never pass in Congress, and whatever else they'll say.

Bernie, on the other hand, just needs to keep doing what he's already doing. The grassroots push for his campaign has been phenomenal & it's nearly rendered corporate media obsolete. I think he's actually showing other independent and/or low visibility candidates the blueprint on how to defeat the gatekeepers in the major parties.
