It wasn’t just me, several people in here have pointed out the McKinsey stint as one of the red flags he’s a psycho

I feel like I’ve been a broken record about it though

I get they're going after warren for a policy she copied from bernie just cuz she's the frontrunner but she also sure is less effective at defending it too, hmmm

like did her campaign decide the "literally every other halfways decent country in the world has made this work" rebuttal would just have her sounding too sandersian

wow it's been a minute since this thread was moving so slow I had to worry about post stacking

Who’s worse at running for President, Joe or Kamala?

Joe’s got a long history of it but Kamala is really trying hard to catch up

hrm i think i know what you mean. i may have used the wrong word, but what i’m getting at is: i like these representatives because they seem to pursue policy based on the will of their constituents and their personal beliefs and have a level of integrity that seems fresh, and endorsing the candidate that aligns well with their purported political beliefs outright would continue that trend, whereas withholding that endorsement seems like a technical political move, a cynical strategy of which i am less than a fan! it certainly wouldn’t put me off them forever or anything and isn’t a total betrayal, but it is less cool.

OK i see what you mean. but under that set of logic, why didn't they endorse sooner? one could argue that they endorsed this week as a calculated response to the fact that bernie's been relatively stagnant in national polls and he's coming off a rough couple of weeks that included a having a heart attack

be happy they endorsed him, but don't pretend it's not just as political as any other endorsement or non-endorsement in any campaign cycle

isn't the whole point of endorsements political? like do they have any non-political value?

Bernie is trying to be the President of the United Stares of America, everything is calculated and pragmatic because he wants to win.
