I read that as well.
She worked as an organizer for Bernie so just wait till she gets questions about the ongoing lawsuits associated with that fiasco. Want to bet on if she calls out the dnc establishment for that one?


I doubt she'd dare.

Here, I’ll package that into a party unifying slogan for you.

We Hate Trump’s Love.

How did the DNC f Bernie over again?


Y'know...it's been awhile since the Democrat primaries...and I DO have that steel plate in my head.
Maybe you can set me straight on this, Gryph.

LOL your claim, your explanation ...

Mine is the same as usual ...the primaries are run by State governments, the Superdelegate system was in place when Bernie started, and he was not a Democrat before the Election or after it.

Gryph’s right. It wasn’t about getting Bernie. It was all about showing the plebes that total submission is the message of the “democratic” party by using superdelegates to override ideas that countered the official stance.

Sorta like you could run against Stalin in an election but people that voted for the opposition were relocated to Siberia for a wilderness adventure.

I guess they do need more voters since they can't seem to rig elections too good

Thanks guys.
Glad to hear the Democrat primary was all above board.

Apologies to all for being misinformed.

Ask countless Bernie Sanders supporters, and they’ll tell you a big reason he lost the Democratic party primaries is simple: the process was rigged.

How could she beat trump when on equal ground she wouldnt have even beaten bernie?



Sanders “lost” those states because hundreds of superdelegates had pledged their votes long before the primaries and caucuses began. By including those prearranged votes, running media tallies reinforced the inevitability of a Clinton win and the common perception that the Democratic primary was “rigged”. In June, the Associated Press went so far as to call the primary in Clinton’s favor – before Californians even had a chance to cast their votes.

I don't think anyone wants to be reminded of the 2016 election season, but if the dnc doesn't fix their party they won't win.



Such a move could also recover some of the Democrats’ lost base. During Obama’s time as president, the Democratic party lost both chambers of Congress, nearly a thousand seats in state legislatures, and half of state governorships. In many parts of the country, Democrats have almost no political influence at all. The blue wave expected in 2018 could easily lose force if Democrats remain locked in internal struggles for control, rather than work together to expand their political horizon.

Didn't Clinton actually personally finance the DNC debt?

STILL foggy on this (Steel plate).



Officials from Hillary’s campaign had taken a look at the DNC’s books.

Obama left the party $24 million in debt—$15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign—and had been paying that off very slowly. Obama’s campaign was not scheduled to pay it off until 2016.

Hillary for America (the campaign) and the Hillary Victory Fund (its joint fundraising vehicle with the DNC) had taken care of 80 percent of the remaining debt in 2016, about $10 million, and had placed the party on an allowance.

It looks like Hillary controlled the DNC's purse strings.

I can't keep on with this, because the thread isn't about Bernie's campaign in 2016, or about the feelings among many that he was "cheated" in various and sundry ways or whether there was any justification for the DNC's treatment of him, etc. etc.

I like Bernie. I don't agree with all of his politics, but I would have preferred him as President over Donald Trump.

Heck, I would have preferred Donald Duck over Donald Trump.

Hey, here's a tangential question for you or anyone ... slightly more in line with the thread topic ...

Since Clinton didn't win the Presidency ... does the offical 2016 Democratic Platform still supposedly represent where the Party stands? Or do we have to wait until the convention in 2020 to find out?

Giving them FAR too much credit.

This is their actual message....

" Hi! We're the DNC! We're not Trump!"

That's really all they have to work with.

I suppose it depends a great deal on where the Democrat Party stands TODAY...to get a sense as to where it ultimately gravitates.

Maybe it's the steel plate in my head talking (it can be very loquacious)...but there doesn't currently seem to be a Democrat party stance beyond the "Hate Trump", "Open Borders" and "Raise Taxes to Take Back Your Crumbs".

On topic...OP DBC pretty much outlined as much already.

Am I just missing the joke about the steel plate in your head?

The establishment Democrats don't hate Trump ... they're merely the Snidley Whiplash to his Dudley Do-Right.

Or vicey-versy, depending on one's perspective.

No, Gryph. Respectfully...
They HATE Trump.

They've made that fact very clear...EVERY chance they get.

Because "They" are a monolithic, hive-mind that all feel exactly the same way about every topic?

Nah, that works for the divisive political narrative ... it's not reality.

Best.

So, 4 pages in and no one has been able to convincingly articulate what it the Democrats platform is?

OUR PLATFORM

THE 2016 DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM
Every four years, the Democratic Party puts together our party platform, the ideas and beliefs that govern our party as a whole.

What follows is our 2016 platform — our most progressive platform in our party’s history and a declaration of how we plan to move America forward. Democrats believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls.

This party platform was voted on and passed by our membership at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in 2016. The platform will be updated and re-approved at the 2020 Democratic National Convention.
