Fearing the selection of Bernie Sanders as the Democrats’ 2020 presidential nominee, a growing number of establishment party officials are reportedly considering Sherrod Brown as a late entry “white knight” with Michelle Obama as a running mate. Other potential candidates floated by the party include Kamala Harris, who dropped out of the race in December, as well as house speaker Nancy Pelosi, according to the New York Times’ interview with 93 party officials, all of whom are super-delegates who could determine the party’s nominee should a candidate emerge without a clear majority of delegate votes.

Not that I would vote for Bernie, but they are out to stab him in the back again. If they do, I believe the Bernie supporters will not go to the ballot box if he wins the primary. The dems are corrupt!

The pundits are predicting that although coming into the convention Bernie will have the most delegates, he will not have enough to win on the first ballot, which means a brokered convention. If they don't give Bernie the nomination, let's hope the Bernie Bros go absolutely nuts (actually, most of them are absolutely nuts right now).

#9 she worked at that hospital for $300,000 dollars sending patients who couldn't pay to other hospitals. While she worked there her husband who was a State Senator saw to it that the hospital received over a Million Dollars. Whe she left the hospital the job was ended, meaning it wasn't needed in the first place only to receive money given because her husband was a State Senator. In 2008 Obama surrenderede his license because he lied on his bar applicaton and Michelle was told by a federal judge to surrender her license or be charged with insurance fraud. The opnly achievement I remember she made was making school food inedible.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has picked up some big endorsements in the last week or so, including a couple in Virginia after he won South Carolina's Democratic presidential primary Saturday. But in case you're wondering if former President Barack Obama will get behind his old right-hand man before Super Tuesday, Biden suggests not holding your breath. During an appearance on ABC's This Week on Sunday, host George Stephanopoulos asked Biden, who is back in the thick of the race but is still likely chasing national frontrunner Sen.

TUCSON, Ariz. — The owners of a Mexican restaurant in the Tucson area are fending off social media attacks after appearing in the VIP area at President Donald Trump's Phoenix campaign rally last week.

KASTANIES, Greece - Greek police fired teargas to push back hundreds of stone-throwing migrants trying to cross the border from Turkey on Saturday, as a crisis over Syria shifted onto the European Union's doorstep. Greece, which has tense relations with Turkey, accused Ankara of sending the migrants to the border post in an organized "onslaught" and said it would keep them out. Turkey said on Thursday it would stop keeping hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers in its territory after an air strike on Idlib in neighboring Syria killed 33 Turkish soldiers.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Georgette Mayo, who is African American, doesn't like Pete Buttigieg. "I don't trust him," said Mayo, an archivist at the College of Charleston, who has narrowed her choices in Saturday's Democratic primary to Tom Steyer and Elizabeth Warren. "In regards to him as mayor in South Bend, and the friction that there was with the police chief — he just hasn't made up for that," she said. "To me, he's just not even a consideration."

Myrtle Beach (United States) - For centuries, South Carolina's Charleston was the largest port of entry for the transatlantic slave trade. Now, a billionaire activist named Tom Steyer is shaking up the state's Democratic primary by advocating slavery reparations for African Americans. A California financier turned philanthropist and environmental campaigner, Steyer has poured tens of millions of dollars into the state ahead of Saturday's vote -- with a single-minded focus on the black voters who make up 60 percent of its Democratic electorate. How South Carolina's African Americans vote in the White House primaries is traditionally a key indicator of which contender

A ban on flavored e-cigarettes and tobacco products passed the House on Friday but divided Democrats, with some saying it unfairly targets African Americans. (Snip) It would also ban menthol cigarettes, which are disproportionately used by African Americans after years of targeted marketing by tobacco companies. While most Democrats supported the measure, some members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) voted against the bill, worrying it could give police a way to target African Americans. “This legislation has dire, unintended consequences for African Americans,” said Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.), a member of the CBC. “Law enforcement would have an additional

That explains Donald Trump. Now, people seem to have changed. This cycle, people want stability.”

You would have thought that the vibe at CPAC this year would involve stressing about our November election prospects, but even as the market dipped over the coronavirus scare the general consensus was that whether we face Vermont Stalin or that miserable monied midget, we got this.

SUMTER, S.C. — In October, Pete Buttigieg said he would do better with South Carolina’s black voters once they got to know him better. When he came back in December, he was still working on introducing himself to the black electorate. And in late January he admitted he was scared that at his rallies in South Carolina, where 60 percent of the Democratic electorate is black, most attendees were white. Those fears were borne out on Saturday, when Mr. Buttigieg was trounced in South Carolina’s primary and earned just two percent of the vote from African-Americans, according to early exit polling.
