Democratic National Convention 2016 Open Thread

It’s the Democrats turn for their convention this week July 25-28 2016 in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, Pa.

The Drama, pre Convention, was the Release of the DNC emails by Wikileaks. These emails show that the DNC and the Hillary Campaign were working together against Bernie Sanders. The head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz seems to be at the center of what some people are calling the rigging of the Democratic Primary and the released emails show that this happened. Debbie was dismissed as head of the convention and the DNC and was promptly hired by the Hillary campaign. So after a week of Drama with Trump antics at the Republican National Convention, we are in for another week of infighting at the Democratic National Convention. This has been a years for BAD Surprises.

Bernie Sanders and his followers are coming back in the spotlight and there is much talk about a Third Party, a strong Third Party which might actually be the outcome of this election.

What will happen next in this year of strange surprises?

Open Thread – Bernie Sanders IS Running for President!

A true open thread. A place to post til I can work on a new topper.

Sen. Bernie Sanders announced he was running for President. Here’s Jon Stewart’s take on it…

Jon Stewart wryly welcomes Bernie Sanders to the 2016 presidential race
Up until Thursday, the race for the Democratic nomination was largely a “coronation” of Hillary Clinton, Jon Stewart said on Thursday’s Daily Show. Then, up stepped Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), “two-term senator, six-term congressman, full-term curmudgeon.” How, exactly, is a man with almost zero name recognition going to “battle the incredibly powerful Clinton machine?” Stewart asked, showing a clip from Sanders’, um, terse campaign announcement. “With charm!” So far, the message is “not so much ‘Yes We Can,’ and more like “Let’s Get This Over With, I’m a Busy Men’,” Stewart said.

It’s more about Hillary and her problems with the Clinton Charity.

Many people are happy Sen. Sanders is running. He’s genuine and really wants to work for the people.
