Poll: Should CNN disclose its owner Time Warner is Clinton's 8th largest donor..

This was the first response:
Ridiculous...
Regular people do not care. If you know, it must be public knowledge. If anybody cares, they can search.

The bridge between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders (Groups)....

There's obviously a lot of contention between the two groups. Is there anyway to get DU members of these two groups to interact more constructively? From my understanding the Hillary Clinton group has banned close to twice as many members as it has, while the Bernie Sanders group has banned about a third of its membership (HC - 300+ members, BS - 900+ members).

Do members of the Hillary Clinton/Bernie Sanders groups feel like the DU members who joined and were banned, overwhelmingly attacked their candidate to the point of superficiality or credibility?

Will the bridge between the two stay unhinged? Will the ad hominem blame game continue until the end of the primaries?


Disclosure:
To be fully honest, I was apart of both groups, and banned from the Hillary Clinton group for insulting its members. I was responding to an OP calling the AZ primary a "voter fraud cry...whenever BS loses a primary". In my instance, my "insults" may have warranted a ban, I respect the integrity of their moderators to make that decision.

Why Rolling Stone Magazine Endorsed Hillary Clinton...

These excerpts are from a 2008 article and laid out by a comment on the wrap article about Jann Wenner who clearly articulated his support of Obama over Clinton ("Her campaign certainly proved her experience didn't count for much: She was a bad manager and strategist who naturally and easily engaged in the politics of distraction, trivialization and personal attack". Granted it has been 8 years and opinions change completely, but it's worth mentioning the contrast from today.

This is a DIRECT QUOTE from Jann Wenner, the owner of Rolling Stone.
He spent years and years trash talking Hillary and supporting Bernie,
and now suddenly he is pro Clinton? I think this whole thing is bought
and paid for by the Clinton campaign in a misguided effort to "bring
in the youth vote". Again, this is a direct quote from Jann Wenner
(the same guy who wrote the piece endorsing Clinton):

[In reference to Obama]: "All this was made clearer by the contrast
with Hillary Clinton, a capable and personable senator who has run the
kind of campaign that reminds us of what makes us so discouraged about
our politics. Her campaign certainly proved her experience didn't
count for much: She was a bad manager and a bad strategist who
naturally and easily engaged in the politics of distraction,
trivialization and personal attack. She never convinced us that her
vote for the war in Iraq was anything other than a strategic political
calculation that placed her presidential ambitions above the
horrifying consequences of a war. Her calibrated course corrections
over the past three years were painful. Like John Kerry —— who also
voted for the war while planning a presidential run —— it helped cost
her that goal."

Two highly encouraging polls on GD: Primaries.

1. Quiz determining candidate you most align with poll for results (45 votes and 84% Bernie).

2. Poll regarding the alleged voter fraud in AZ and whether it should be investigated (88 votes, 98% YES).

Hillary Clinton Hits the GOP on Voter Suppression (in 2015)....will she comment about AZ?

Clinton didn’t shy away from that connection. “It is a cruel irony, but no coincidence, that millennials—the most diverse, tolerant, and inclusive generation in American history—are now facing exclusion,” she said, in reference to restrictions on student voting. Likewise, she explained, “Minority voters are more likely than white voters to wait in long lines at polling places. They are also far more likely to vote in polling places with insufficient numbers of voting machines … This kind of disparity doesn’t happen by accident.”

For weeks, some Democrats have been sounding the alarm about not enough polling places in Maricopa County for Tuesday's presidential primary.

They warned that reducing the number of polling places from 200 during the 2012 primary election to 60 would mean long lines and discourage people from voting.

They said the fact that some predominantly Latino areas got one or none polling places essentially translates into voter suppression.

Just banned from Hillary Clinton Group

Not sure if I can honestly say I'll vote for her in November, this on top of my reservations. It seems like all Hillary supporters on here don't care about winning over Sanders' supporters, are they hoping the fear of Donald Trump will force us to vote for her?



Posted this thread calling for open primaries in NY, phew...

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=1557861

Hillary Clinton Hits the GOP on Voter Suppression....does anyone care this happened in AZ?

Maricopa County is home to Phoenix and half of the democratic vote in the entire state. Did I miss a post bringing this up? This is not just a "berniebro" talking, this is Republican sponsored "voter suppression".

Edit: Needed clarification...Clinton said this in 2015.
Clinton didn’t shy away from that connection. “It is a cruel irony, but no coincidence, that millennials—the most diverse, tolerant, and inclusive generation in American history—are now facing exclusion,” she said, in reference to restrictions on student voting.
