DES MOINES — Joe Biden’s campaign has parted ways with its Iowa field director, two days after the former vice president came in an embarrassing fourth place in the primary caucus state. Adrienne Bogen, who headed field operations for Biden, will not stay on the campaign, even as other members of senior leadership were asked to head to other early states or to assist in Super Tuesday operations. (Snip) “We had precinct captains who didn’t know how to run a caucus. And a few didn’t even show. We lost friggin’ people on the second ballot of voting in the caucus!

Comments:

Whose fault is it if supporters are drifting away and the staff was never properly trained?

Joe told the Iowa staff, "I'm leaving in six hours. If the field director isn't fired by the time I leave you're not getting the billion dollars. Well, son of bitch. They fired her."

i have, in the past, been involved in some political campaigns, and i can assure you that everyone working on the campaign believes they possess the wisdom to win - and that everyone else is stupid, including the candidate. In the case of this young woman, she may be saying the candidate is stupid, and she would be correct. say what you want about Peter the Homosexual, but he has a well organized campaign. Old Jo and Crazy Bernie should keep watching their backside, because Peter will be right behind them. Darn it, I did it again.

Iowa Dems seem to need some lessons on more efficient vote fraud. They should consult with Obama, who defrauded Hillary, and with Hillary, who defrauded Bernie.

Hillary Clinton seemingly doubled down on her previous criticism of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, her one-time rival during the 2016 presidential election, during an interview Thursday. In an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Clinton, the Democratic nominee four years ago, urged voters to "vote for the person that you believe can actually win in November." The notion that Clinton was criticizing Sanders, a self-avowed democratic socialist, was reaffirmed when DeGeneres said: "It seems to me more than ever we need somebody who’s going to go in and be able to kind of steer this ship in the right direction

A half-dozen women of color have departed Elizabeth Warren’s Nevada campaign in the run-up to the state’s caucuses with complaints of a toxic work environment in which minorities felt tokenized and senior leadership was at loggerheads. The six staffers have left the roughly 70-person Nevada team since November, during a critical stretch of the race. Three of them said they felt marginalized by the campaign, a situation they said didn’t change or worsened after they took their concerns to their superiors or to human resources staff. “During the time I was employed with Nevada for Warren, there was definitely something

Results from the Iowa Democratic caucuses were delayed by “quality control checks” on Monday night. Days later, quality control issues have not been resolved. The results released by the Iowa Democratic Party on Wednesday were riddled with inconsistencies and other flaws. According to a New York Times analysis, more than 100 precincts reported results that were internally inconsistent, that were missing data or that were not possible under the complex rules of the Iowa caucuses. In some cases, vote tallies do not add up. In others, precincts are shown allotting the wrong number of delegates to certain candidates. And in

Two days into the unprecedented and embarrassing delay in results from Monday night's Iowa caucuses, tensions throughout the Democratic Party are defining a chaotic slog to release the full results. Intra-party friction was laid bare Wednesday as the Democratic National Committee sought to further distance itself from the flawed caucus process and specifically the new application the Iowa state party had purchased as a way -- it hoped -- to streamline reporting. The app was built to collect and report the caucus results, but some precinct officials said they had issues reporting the results of their caucuses through the app. The software

Bruce Barnes, a 52-year-old white voter from Henniker, New Hampshire, pressed Buttigieg on what he was doing to improve his standing among voters of color who are critical to winning the Democratic presidential nomination. “This isn’t about how to win. This is about how to deserve to win,” Buttigieg responded before detailing at length his plans to invest in minority communities. “We’ve got to recognize that right now, this is two different countries, in so

To hear House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) tell it, impeachment has crystallized President Trump’s misdeeds and forever stained his record. “I think that we have pulled back a veil of behavior totally unacceptable to our Founders, and that the public will see this with a clearer eye, an unblurred eye,” she told the New York Times this week. She added, “Whatever happens, he has been impeached forever." Except there’s little evidence that this “unblurring” has damaged Trump in any way, really. And new polling suggests that he is at least unscathed, and has quite possibly emerged from his impeachment stronger.

Diogenes is said to have asked what is the difference between a man and a plucked chicken since both are featherless bipeds. Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) calls this into question again today. Romney’s vote to convict President Trump of “abuse of power” for inquiring into the flow of money from Ukraine into the pockets of the Bidens after the appearance that Vice President Joe Biden had directly intervened in Ukrainian internal affairs either to repay the favor or shield the corruption from sunlight, is among the most degraded public acts of a generation. Romney very clearly wants revenge. He lost the presidency in 2012, denounced Donald Trump’s candidacy in 2016

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is commonly referred to in Washington as a master tactician. But like the partisan impeachment fiasco and the humiliating Iowa caucus disaster, her selection of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to deliver this year’s response to President Trump’s State of the Union address was a major strategic misstep. The selection of Whitmer was a politically calculated decision to introduce a relatively new name on the national scene from a state that will play a critical role in November. The irony of Whitmer’s selection, however, is that she represents exactly what is wrong with today’s Democratic Party — unrealistic promises, massive tax hikes,

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ripped Senate Republicans after they voted to acquit President Trump on two impeachment charges of obstruction of Congress and abuse of power. "As the president's impeachment trial began, Republican senators pledged an oath to defend the Constitution," Clinton tweeted. "Today, 52 of them voted to betray that oath—and all of us. We’re entering dangerous territory for our democracy. It’ll take all of us working together to restore it." Clinton, 72, lost to Trump, 73, in the 2016 presidential election and has spent much of the time since repeatedly claiming she actually won because of the popular vote.

DES MOINES — Maybe it was the threat of bad weather. Maybe it was a seating assignment debacle. Maybe it was a struggling campaign organization that still hadn’t found its footing. But as Joseph R. Biden Jr. spoke at a major Iowa Democratic Party dinner in November, one thing was clear: His support appeared tepid compared with the vocal cheering sections of top rivals. The reception angered Mr. Biden and his top aides — and it left little doubt about his standing, three months before the nominating process in the Democratic presidential race would begin: The former vice president was in deep trouble in Iowa.
