This has put the Democratic National Committee in a bit of a bind.
But Sanders wasn’t the only presidential hopeful talking in these terms. “Now it’s hard to find anyone who sees anything like an inevitability in that match up”, Evensen said. For Republicans, there is also voter unrest because control over Congress did not slow down the Affordable Care Act, Planned Parenthood, the Iran deal and other plans important to President Obama and his legacy.
“Everybody thought this was going to be a competitive race”, Demers said. “I don’t think so!” He anounced his candidacy for the 2008 Presidential election in December 2006, but withdrew less than a year later after struggling to raise money. “New Hampshire politics at its best”, she said. Vice presidents are often chosen from among those who lost out on the nomination.
Pitting Fiorina against Clinton would highly favor the Republicans. But more recently, surveys show her lagging behind: In a WBUR poll of New Hampshire Democrats taken earlier this week, Sanders leads Clinton, 35 to 31 percent. Clinton is assiduously courting key constituencies by including them in the development of her platform, aiming policies directly at them, and building a campaign operation that clearly reflects the full diversity of the Democratic Party.
“They’re keeping an open mind”, he said. They’ve attended the Queen City Memory Café – a monthly workshop for those affected by or living with memory loss problems – multiple times over the past year.
“Carson, like Trump, has no government experience”, she said. “And I made that public“, she said. “All I ask is that you vote for me in every election”. “I would be honored to have her, in one way or another, working with me”. “Exactly how she goes about defending herself remains to be seen“.
At her town hall in Concord, which drew close to 400 people, four other Democratic elites spoke in support of Clinton: a former state party chairman, a state representative, a former congressman and a former state Senate majority leader. The potential benefit of a well-placed attack does not outweigh that danger, and it may be seen more as an act of desperation than strength. “How’d that work out for him?” She called that a “good start” but called for him to accept 65,000, with an emphasis on the most vulnerable – Christians and Yazidi women, for example.
It is a myth created by the establishment media that Sanders’ appeal is limited to well-educated white coastal liberals, particularly males, and that he has a natural barrier to how far and deep his support can extend.
“Everyone needs a champion and I am just getting warmed up”, Clinton said.
“A lot of issues here locally are economics and increasing the minimum wage”, Fischman said. “That’s part of it”, Bruce Evensen, director of the journalism department, said. “The people who work at that company should as well”. It is true, the feel in America is towards a more conservative base. “Hillary Clinton was a mesmerizing speaker”. “But I don’t think there’s an expectation that’s he’s going to be president of the United States“.
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says he’s surging and can win because he’s “treating the American people with intelligence” while denouncing the racially charged rhetoric of Republican rivals. “Some of that may spill over to the Democrats”. Onlookers chanted the names of their candidates competing to out-yell each other while beating together inflatable sticks typically found at a college basketball game.
“We endorse Bernie Sanders to become the 2016 Democratic Nominee for President of the United States of America”. She’s reducing the number of big-name Democrats available as validators for Biden as he deliberates over a run. Big question. “And I agree, I think politicians ought to be accountable”.
The DNC has also argued that the schedule is designed to allow candidates to maximize their time on the campaign trail meeting voters. “Just know that polls at this point are fairly fragile”. It’s also one of the many factors that could figure in Vice President Joe Biden’s decision about whether to jump into the race. Obama’s crass subservience to the interests of the one percent has erased any doubts about this institutional fealty except among hardened neoliberals, tribal Democrats, and the entire on-air lineup of MSNBC. Additional debates are scheduled for November 14, December 19, and January 17.
