I do not understand

          I am not in anyway a single issue voter, but really how is this man's candidacy even a discussable topic. People like Trump, and Bloomberg need to be excluded by definition!!!!

          Give me even one valid reason to think otherwise. And, before you start, unalienable right is not a reason, of any stripe: there are plenty of valid reasons to exclude …

The Nuclear Option

Some time around the end of last November we started to see a few articles like this:
Waiting for Obama

With typical quotes like these:

Publicly, he has been clear that he won’t intervene in the primary for or against a candidate, unless he believed there was some egregious attack. “I can't even imagine with this field how bad it would have to be for him to say something,” said a close adviser. Instead, he sees his role as providing guardrails to keep the process from getting too ugly and to unite the party when the nominee is clear. There is one potential exception: Back when Sanders seemed like more of a threat than he does now, Obama said privately that if Bernie were running away with the nomination, Obama would speak up to stop him.

I remember reading those headlines at the time, thinking, if he steps in to stop Bernie publicly, it will destroy his legacy. And if there is one thing Obama cares about, it's his legacy.

Bloomberg Offering $6k for Field Organisers

I'm sure if any of you have participated in campaigns other than comments on the net you've met paid Field Organisers before. Obama had a gazillion of them here in 08, Bennett had quite a few in 10, and Obama to a lesser extent in 12 as our state was a more sure bet. They are always in the offices, organize group canvasses, generate lists for people and maps, do trainings, etc.

Donald Trump Now The Hugest Climate Catalyst #OnePlanetSummit #Climate

Okay now, who will admit to reading with passing interest reports on Trump’s campaign speeches about protecting US jobs, Social Security, Medicare, stopping TPP, and more populist words? Anyone?

Bloomberg to Tipper kiss Clintons at Convention

To all you leftist cynics, those who don't for instance think the Democratic Party is capable of not rewarding Bloomberg in an elegant fashion for threatening to run as an independent if Sanders got the nomination to scare gullible primary voters, well, you are getting more evidence ...

Delegate Counts as of 27 March, 2015.

This is from BloombergPolitcs. The graphics are very good. If you float over the states which have already had primaries, you can see the splits.

One complaint: I would like to see the same totals graphic without the Super delegates included. Otherwise a nice presentation.
