A Christopher Green update:
I have wanted to make this post for a couple weeks, but Chris' computer with the new keyboard had a non-working space bar.
Chris wound up receiving 51 physical birthday cards and I displayed them all.I also decided he should have a birthday month, so we are keeping all of the decor up until the day after Thanksgiving. Then, it's decorate for Christmas, I will post more pictures when it is done. For now, here are more pictures of Chris' birthday. I started at the window and went clockwise.

But does Sanders really think his untrammeled populism can win him the nomination, much less a general election?
I'm running to win, he insists. It won't be just an educational campaign.
When pressed, however, he acknowledges that he thinks even a losing campaign would be a good thing because of its potential to bring more attention to his ideas, widen the national debate and put pressure on Hillary Rodham Clinton or any other eventual Democratic nominee.
Win or lose, Sanders will fill a familiar role if he decides to run. Democratic presidential primaries almost always include at least one populist or quasi-populist candidate on the left. In 2008, it was John Edwards. In 2004, it was Howard Dean. In 1992, it was California's own Jerry Brown. And none of them won the nomination.
This year, there could be three candidates running to the left of Clinton. In addition to Sanders, there might be Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (who says he's running, but hasn't succeeded in defining much of a theme yet) and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who spent most of the summer saying she wouldn't run, but recently modified that to I don't think so.
The rest at the link:
I believe the Democrats (at the national level, anyway) are behaving like the phony Democrats Truman was referring to.
