Maybe, but it's now law in 12 states. Granted, the low hanging fruit got picked first, but it's worth pointing out that within my life time the gay community has gone from "ewww.....cooties" to something approaching equality, and the devils lettuce is approaching legality in enough states for a constitutional amendment itself.
Call me an optimist.
Those are social issues more than anything. Eliminating the electoral college would fundamentally alter the power balance between states in favor of the more populous states. There's no way that will make it through the Senate.
If states counting for 271 electoral votes pass it individually then the senate need not be involved at all.
This. It's sort of an end-around, but State's Rights, amirite??
Isn’t the purpose of the EC to check majority rule? To defuse ‘might makes right’ political strong arming?
Meh. Hamilton wrote about the dangers of faction and this system was part of what he thought would combat it. I think the Republican Party as it is is a great example of faction at work.
Tyranny of the minority.
“I’ve reported on Bernie Sanders for years. A free press won’t give him what he wants.”
Joe Biden thinks Mike Pence is a decent guy.
Love the walker peeking out
I contributed to his campaign yesterday, FWIW.
Pete Buttigieg is at 55,359 donors as of this morning per my email blast. He needs 65k donors (of any amount) to get into the DNC debate. If you’d like to see this consider donating.
Thought I'd read he'd earlier he had hit that goal. Cant say I know enough about him, but ill read up and am willing to chip in some cash if not a looney.
That number was from an email this afternoon from his campaign, so presumably accurate.
he’s legit. and has good ideas...that name tho
in the new democratic party certain litmus tests will have to be passed....
Beto is officially in.
I am totally fine with that as a litmus test. Pence is anathema to any variant of the D platform.
jazz hand clapping....
so joe should grovel and apologise....
did you see hickenlooper being interviewed by the morning joe twat...joe asked looper like 6 times...are you a capitalist....hickenlooper was afraid to answer in the democrats new world order....
He should have gone with "I'm a Democratic Socialist Capitalist"... and then sit back and watch.
Kinda reminds me of white Obama. I think he has a chance and he is such a nice guy that it will be hard for T-Dump to go all insulty on him without looking like a total dick.
When has that ever stopped the mango in chief?
that's a fair point- take all the race baiting and gender baiting out of it and see what happens. He'll still come up with a catchy nickname. Neato beto? beat-o beto? who knows. I can't wait
No one cares if you're a dick to shitty human beings (ie most politicians) or rich narcissists (ie most celebrities). In fact it's kinda fun to watch these inflated douche bags get a shit sandwich rammed down their throats on occasion. But when you're being a dick to someone who seems genuine and likeable the dynamic starts to change.
I recall watching a video where he pronounced his nickname as “bay toe”.
Sanders voters in 2016 stick with Bernie. Clinton voters trend for Biden.
What’s weird to me is that there is more Sanders-Biden crossover than Sanders-Warren.
And the obnoxious Harris is up there...
what I think is far more interesting is that a fair amount of berniebots (based on line thickness) are going for biden, based on that poll. Of course Hillary voters are going to pick somebody new, but berners don't have to.
the coordination with vanity fair and him announcing.....fantastic.
do you think they told him to keep his hands in his pockets?
Beto O’Rourke Raised $6.1 Million Online in First 24 Hours of Campaign
Context is $5.9M/first 24h for Bernie.
mayne beto needs the fredo treatment....
This was evident from t = 0.
Seriously. He's from texas. He didn't get elected in Texas and damn near beat Totally Human Candidate Ted Cruz by running to the left of someone like Gavin Newsom. More shifting of the Overton Window.
