I just saw the primary schedule, it's really front loaded with Super Tuesday so early. With 20+ running is won't every candidate stick it up until Super Tuesday just 30 days after Iowa? Top 3 (Biden, Bernie, Pete) then drag it out to June. 

 

I'd say some will probably drop out before 2019 is even over. Even though they don't need as high a share of the vote to win, if you're not going anywhere, you might just count your losses early.

Unless something crazy happens, it looks like it's Biden's to lose. 

So once he opens his mouth in the debates?

Or when he offers Kamala Harris a back rub on stage.

Tapes from Sanders' 1980s public access show have been released. Noah's right: if I went back in a time machine and the first person I saw was Bernie, I'd be like, "Huh, lemme try PoS again."

 

 

Look how he talks to the kids about two minutes in.

 

"I disagree with you. I think you're dumb." :lol:

Someone has spent months digging through thousands of hours of Burlington public access video trying to find something damning but everything that they release just makes me like him more.

I can't imagine needing anymore than 11 candidates, lol.

 

I hope inslee makes the debates at the very least. Gravel would be hilarious, too, but a longer shot to make it.

I'm sure Climate is going to come up multiple times in the debates, and easily see Warren going pretty hard on the issue.

I mean it's the first/second? Biggest issue for self identified democrats, but there's gonna be so many people you need more than one person to answer at length about it and rebut bullshit like "there's no money for it"/whatever

I'd rather Inslee be in the debates to really make climate front and center. On his platform, all the other issues circle back to climate (immigration and the economy are affected by climate). His voice is important for that.

 

Gillibrand is under 1%, which is surprising for me. I figured she'd get around the same as Booker or at least more than someone like Hickenlooper.

Eh, he wasn't that entertaining in 2008. He honestly doesn't get his points across well, even if you agree with them. Sanders detractors say he sounds like an angry old man, but imo that's Gravel.

To be clear: I'd like to have the teenagers running his Twitter account to pull a weekend at Bernie's at the debates for Gravel

The second source, a former energy department official also advising Biden’s campaign who asked not to be named, said the policy will likely also be supportive of nuclear energy and fossil fuel options like natural gas and carbon capture technology, which limit emissions from coal plants and other industrial facilities.

Holy fucking shit, there's so such fucking thing as CCS. It's a bullshit bit of green washing from the coal and natural gas industries

Plame will likely face questions about accusations of anti-Semitism that came to light in 2017.

 

Plame tweeted an article in 2017 that accused "American Jews" of "driving America's wars." Written on the fringe site UNZ Review, it stated Jews "own and run the media" and recommended Jewish supporters of Israel like Bill Kristol be labeled as such when they appear on television: "That would be kind-of-like a warning label on a bottle of rat poison."

 

She initially defended herself against criticism about sharing the piece, at one point tweeting "many neocon hawks ARE Jewish" before eventually apologizing and claiming to have not read the article carefully. Because of the controversy, she resigned from the board of the Ploughshares Fund, a left-wing nonprofit that aggressively promoted the Iran nuclear deal on behalf of the Obama administration.

 

The Washington Examiner reported that over the course of thee years she shared nine UNZ articles, including one titled "Why I Still Dislike Israel" and another about "Dancing Israelis" on 9/11.

Something like this?

Not economical by any means, and the long term storage needed is wholly unproven. It's easier to leave carbon in the ground

Why not just take this and combine it with the concrete company that uses CO2 and trap it in what we are building anyway.
