Anyone surprised by this?

Clinton is wrecking Sanders on foreign policy.

I almost feel sorry for him.

There will always be a reason why a woman is not the right woman. Always a "better alternative".

The mythical "ideal" will always be just out of reach or unattainable. If it wasn't Hillary, it would be some other woman that doesn't meet the standard. There will always be some man that is better, not because he is a man, but just because.

There will always be comments about her voice. Her wardrobe. Her appearance. Her personal life choices. She will always be just a little too ambitious. She will always be defined by her spouse.

If you point out these differences in treatment, you will be playing the gender card. If she is arrogant enough to point out the historic nature of her goals, she is pandering.

I have come to realize that Yoko Ono was right.

Hillary Clinton is my choice. She is the most qualified. And make no mistake...a large percentage of the vitriol displayed by her opponents on the right and left is sexism. Virulent, hateful sexism.

I'm With Her.

Anybody watch the Lakers v Timberwolves game last night. It was a virtual tie.

Lakers 119
TWolves 115


Let's be frank. Once a sizeable number of minorities can vote, Sanders is done.

His best chances are Iowa and NH, and he couldn't win in Iowa. He needed to win by a good margin in Iowa and he didn't. Young white males are not enough to win a Democratic nomination. Clinton will likely close the gap somewhat in NH, making that a tighter contest, and then we will see how small Sanders' support really is among minorities.

You guys in this group are a safe port from an angry, hateful sea.

Thank you.
