Remember W? A very sobering lesson.

And we're getting one hell of a lesson right now as the GOP threatens to destroy itself and/or foist a nincompoop with a serious, diagnosable personality disorder right into the Oval Office.

I want one man, one vote, absolutely! But self destruction would throw away our power and negate our votes. I support some improved version of the superdelegate system that brings some political professionals into the process against the day that others foolishly try to steer our Democratic ship onto the rocks or into a hurricane.

Yes. I read that NV, and Harry Reid especially, changed to caucases because

they wanted to the date earlier to make Nevada, which is far more representative demographically and positioned in the West, more prominent in the early election cycle and to offset the untoward influence of whitey-white New Hampshire and Vermont. Unless we can someday attend caucuses from home, though, it's not the most democratic form.

BlackAdder, the only way Bernie could even

approach a moral victory on this claim would be to hire tens of millions on the federal payroll. I'd love to put all those people to work rebuilding America, but that just can't happen in this era. Half of our fellow citizens see cutting government power and spending as a moral and/or religious crusade. Those Americans have votes, the same as us, and they will have some real say in what we can do.

Please note also, Congress controls the pursestrings on the federal budget.
