1. Unity doesn't mean uniformity about our party's candidates. Support doesn't mean agreement.

 

We can still support our candidates even when we don't agree with them or their decided DU followers.

I agree with still_one about how we regard our Big Issues.

"One thing you do NOT want in a President, is someone who is so stubborn, that they won't change a position no matter how misguided it is ... this reflects very well on him."

Reconsidering, as Biden said he had, is what leaders who respect their country do. They change their minds as the country changes.

That's what a primary is for. It shows a process of airing, give and take, changing minds.

It doesn't reflect well on the media, that did the usual shit job of not covering the Hyde Amendment's iterations over 40 years, or reporting how every single candidate voted on those iterations. Except Bernie. And my guy, Inslee.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
