53. Damn!!! I love her laugh, wit and experience.

Mar 2021

Right after tRump didn't win in 2016 (popular vote count) I wrote to her and asked about Russia and Putin and the fate of the ACA. She is the only person who answered my back and specifically wrote to me, not a form letter.

Can she be put into a different position? She is so experienced she would do well in many positions and in various US govt departments. We must not let this gem get removed from the Biden admin.

Looking over those glasses, and scolding her. Yes, he could have said any number of things to LizBeth Mar 2021 #18
I don't see anything wrong with him addressing the tweets fishwax Mar 2021 #20

Sanders would have voted for her, because he supports Biden. Manchin would never vote for her. Autumn Mar 2021 #16
I do not know that to be true. Regardless, he started the tone. LizBeth Mar 2021 #19
Regardless, Bernie supports the Democratic agenda that Biden wants. Manchin is kneecapping him. Autumn Mar 2021 #24
Sanders was the very one that kneecapped Tanden. Manchin just kicked her while she was down. LizBeth Mar 2021 #27
So? He still said he would vote for you. You can blame Manchin, who said he wouldn't vote for her. Autumn Mar 2021 #33
So? Ya right LizBeth Mar 2021 #35

"she dropped out". Know who else didn't officially endorse her? Your Democrat, Joe Manchin. Autumn Mar 2021 #164
You are wrong. White House sources said that Bernie said he would vote for her Autumn Mar 2021 #128
It was said after, though not by him publicly dsc Mar 2021 #130
Let it go. You're wrong. Bernie said he would vote for her, he supports Biden's agenda. Manchin Autumn Mar 2021 #133

Bullshit jcgoldie Mar 2021 #168
+1. It truly amazes me the insistence to vilify Manchin and the exoneration or Sanders. It is what LizBeth Mar 2021 #153
Exactly, they both held Tanden to a level they didn't for many of Donny's nominees. rogue emissary Mar 2021 #159

No one in the thread absolved Manchin's role except the people that want to wipe out Sanders role. LizBeth Mar 2021 #170

Why would he vote for her if Manchin and no Republicans would cross over to vote for her? Autumn Mar 2021 #37
Make up your mind. You just posted that he would have voted for her. seaglass Mar 2021 #38
Which part of Manchin said he would not vote for her, Republicans would not cross over to vote for Autumn Mar 2021 #44
He should have announced she was withdrawing her nomination and there would be no vote? Or lied? Autumn Mar 2021 #51
The last I saw he refused to say if he'd vote for her. rogue emissary Mar 2021 #113
