1. The unctuous Lawrence O'Donnell.

I can't click on it. The guy is a walking gob of semi-solid syrup.

2. I know. I watched his show. I have a disagreement wwith Lawrence & his guests though.

I also watched a clip of Hillary when she make her comments about Bernie. It sure sounded to ME like she was saying Bernie was unqualified! Now her supporters are saying she didn't go that far. I call BS on that, and apparently Bernie does too.

3. I agreed with the analysis

I think words (sometimes) matter, one can go just a little too far and it matters. I'd not use this same attack in the future if I was him.

5. I think LOD was very fair.

He pointed out that politicians "artfully" refrain from calling their opponents qualified.

9. Dick Cheney and G. W. Bush were obviously "qualified", since they did it.

So what sound-byte will be picked up on tomorrow, to avoid talking about reality?
With $billions$ in campaign money lining the pockets of everyone in the field of communications, who knows?

What a circus! What a disgrace, that the author of wars that require a person go down a rabbithole to describe, gets away with it because everyone is bought.

The problem is that there are too many people that think it's cool. That it's OK, "the lesser of evils" or whatever, and think it's reasonable to suppose that yet another neocon war profiteering con artist would "incrementally improve things" if elected POTUS.

Weird.

10. Sanders got bad advice, plain and simple.

Look at how this is going to play:

Still, Sanders avoided attacking Clinton too harshly. Unlike fellow Democratic presidential hopeful former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, he said her vote for the Iraq War was not disqualifying — “everybody makes bad votes.”

11. I think a vote in favor of an illegal war of choice, against a country that wasn't attacking,

is disqualifying.

neocons don't.

12. Are you calling Sanders a neocon on June of 2015? Read my link.

He said that her vote wasn't disqualifying and that it was a bad vote. Do you know how this is going to play? Sanders is going to back down tomorrow. Well, today.

13. I'd disagree with Sanders, or anyone, on that.

This is about over a million dead people, joshcryer, and millions more refugees, with the entire physical/social infrastructure of their countries destroyed.

I'm not OK with it. It was and is a crime.

14. I blame Bush for Iraq.

And give Hillary Clinton 1/535ths complicity in that. Or one thousandth of Bush's illegal war crimes. And that's assuming he was going to require congressional action, which he wasn't. He was going in anyway and the vote was cowardice on behalf of those voting for it.

I think Sanders sees it that way and that's why he called it a bad vote, but as the campaign has move forward he has used it as effective rhetoric. His past comments will be used against him, the Clinton campaign is only just getting started.

16. See, this kind of proves that he went off without really thinking about it

I hope this is the last time we hear this line of attack.

Catapulting the smear campaign that Bernie is not qualified to be POTUS. This and the Daily News bullshit are just the opening volleys.

8. She did the very same thing on MTP with Tim Russert in 2008 when asked

if John Edwards and Obama were qualified; she didn't answer but diverted to other topics. That means no, and the candidates were sitting right beside her. Bill Clinton did it too when he was asked about Obama then. SAMO losing tactic, didn't win then and won't win now.
