7. "per Hillary's statement today she will become "honorary chair" of her 50-state strategy"

With all due respect to Hillary, that is insanity. DWS has had a 0 state strategy that has seen the GOP massacre Dem candidates in every place except the oval office. While Obama has been in the white house we've lost the House, the Senate, and governorship and state legislatures across the country.

NOTHING will make the hardliners happy. That's my conclusion. They're after Donna Brazile now. Metric System Jul 2016 #1
Maybe. But the hiring seems to transform a unity-helping event into a unity-defeating event. Land Shark Jul 2016 #4
Dunno, public flogging might do it. Sorry to hear mob's going after Brazile emulatorloo Jul 2016 #14
They want Bernie nominated Proud Liberal Dem Jul 2016 #60
I think we should just write off the extreme leftists making an issue of this and pivot right. MohRokTah Jul 2016 #2
"Pivot right". Seriously? nt DLevine Jul 2016 #6
Extreme leftists said "We won't vote unless DWS goes" MohRokTah Jul 2016 #8
While there are huge numbers of Independents, the # of votes truly on the fence is much tinker Land Shark Jul 2016 #12
REliabiulity is the factor. MohRokTah Jul 2016 #16
If that were a standard you would have to jettison any attempt to capture the center Land Shark Jul 2016 #24
History has proved time and again,... MohRokTah Jul 2016 #26
Maybe. But the far left only describes a small slice of that campaign but Land Shark Jul 2016 #27
Then it is my opinion that what constitutes "extreme left" to you is skewed from reality. eom MohRokTah Jul 2016 #30
I've met lots of folks in the Bernie campaign at the caucuses and convention Land Shark Jul 2016 #33
What extreme leftist do you speak of? Exilednight Jul 2016 #62
I choked on "pivot right" as well. Land Shark Jul 2016 #10

Bizarre, because Sanders positions are the opposite of Trump's positions. emulatorloo Jul 2016 #19
Dont be shortsighted or reckless Jemmons Jul 2016 #35
So I have to pretend Bernie's policies are the same as Trump's? emulatorloo Jul 2016 #37
No - you just have to not shot yourself in either foot. nt. Jemmons Jul 2016 #40
Perhaps I'm over-sensitive to those who claim to support Bernie but appear not to care about emulatorloo Jul 2016 #45
Im just pointing out a bit of information about human nature Jemmons Jul 2016 #54
No, you said youo WOULDN'T vote for Hillary MohRokTah Jul 2016 #20
Millions more voted for Hillary. Metric System Jul 2016 #13

Why should Clinton waste time trying to appease the people NuclearDem Jul 2016 #17
She needs to leave today, not after she rubs it in Duckhunter935 Jul 2016 #25
Because she wants to be a president of ALL people, and can't just serve one slice Land Shark Jul 2016 #28
In general 'Honorary Position' = no power, no influence, no nothing. emulatorloo Jul 2016 #48
Hasn't Hillary been fund raising for 50 state effort? suffragette Jul 2016 #58
I agree. Scurrilous Jul 2016 #29
More of the same Duckhunter935 Jul 2016 #21
I am not in the least bit surprised XemaSab Jul 2016 #22
Other - I think realistically, Yo_Mama Jul 2016 #23
Interesting. But the resignation is NOT something Clinton can say she conceded or acquiesced to Land Shark Jul 2016 #31
You know, Land Shark, putting up a poll like this is what makes unity harder. PatrickforO Jul 2016 #32
Realizing the implications of this doesn't help unity Land Shark Jul 2016 #34
The issue is not "getting behind Hillary" Land Shark Jul 2016 #38
Unity is not conformity genna Jul 2016 #51
Realistically it changed the narrative about the RNC being incompetent plagiarists HereSince1628 Jul 2016 #36
But I think it will sadly have the opposite effect. Wasserman chairs, speaks, then honorary chair. Land Shark Jul 2016 #39
If true, comments about how DWS threatened to embarrass Obama HereSince1628 Jul 2016 #42
You forgot "Clinton won...Deal." Darb Jul 2016 #41
We're talking about winning unity. I thought that was sealed with resig, but not anymore Land Shark Jul 2016 #44
Go ahead, Darb Jul 2016 #49
So far the poll proves my fear: Hon. Chair changes resignation from unity-promoting to unity defeati Land Shark Jul 2016 #43
Really? A DU poll? Darb Jul 2016 #50
I agree with what you say Duckhunter935 Jul 2016 #53
Unity means suspending all belief and ignoring facts now, right? elehhhhna Jul 2016 #52
meh.... Red Mountain Jul 2016 #55
One can vote for Hillary and support party with $ etc, or not do anything bUT vote. Big difference Land Shark Jul 2016 #56
Exactly XemaSab Jul 2016 #57
I don't care if she's named honorary poobah of Narnia. Doesnt matter. Warren DeMontague Jul 2016 #59
If this is Hillary's idea of uniting the Democratic party, we're screwed! B Calm Jul 2016 #61
