    100% of Republicans will vote for their parties candidate. Most Democrats will vote for their candidate but as seen in '16 there are factions who will follow their candidate to the end by not voting or voting in a manner that has ulterior motives (third party throwing their votes into the dumpster).

    The Democratic party is shell shocked by an extremely loud and unconventional reality television guy who's anything but predictable.

    We're not him is a weak and pathetic approach. This party failed us in '16 and I am not sure that they won't fail us again in 14 months.

    We know that Republicans would walk to the polls in horrendous weather and they would vote. Democrats have 50% of the base who are the same. It's the other 50% who are easily distracted or disinterested who would put the final nail in the coffin. We need all Dems to vote and we need many many new voters to register and follow through by actually voting.

    It doesn't matter if Dems have "the most votes". That means nothing. Let's try (there's time left) to reach out to the 40 states who aren't the 10 largest. Perhaps there's common ground to discuss. Our '16 game plan was bad as evidenced by #45 seating 2 Scotus members. Fail again Mr. Perez. It's nothing that the "next generation" can't address. We must win this election because disadvantaged Americans need real healthcare and clean air and water. Our children and grandchildren need schools where death isn't allowable because the Red party was more concerned with contributions than safety.

    Many would be happy if we gave 5% more effort in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. I say, is that all you have got ? Slightly better is not good enough. Lives and well being are on the line.

    This story was just released by Rolling Stone. It's not very positive.

    I liked Mayor Pete very much.

    Joe Biden is a great man. Joe, you don't play the... Radio..... Record player.... To expose children to more words. In theory his comments were sound. In reality he seemed out of touch. It sounded like sitting around "The Radio" in the 1930's. So what's the difference that it was 80 years ago.

    I would love to buy Joe Biden lunch and thank him for his contributions.

    Election in 14 months. A few more until inauguration. Then 48 - 86 months to serve. Hard truth is his prime is behind him.

    All 10 on stage were better than #45. Who can win ? That's the Trillion dollar question.

    This is the first of the debates with me watching. I mostly saw highlights of the others. I am hopeful for bold exchanges with no personal attacks. I hope to end the weekend with my 2 favorites and a few who could be an excellent second in command.

    So she wants to tax the wealthy.... That has many concerned.

    A meme I saw on Facebook mentioned she want to issue a special tax on above 10 million. It showed poor whites protesting vigorously. The caption said - Those who make 30K.

    She was not worthy of our attention then or now.

    Monday mid day is the expected arrival. A dozen variations of where it will go.

    Could be ugly or it could just be wind and a lot of rain.

    Best wishes to all. Enjoy the holiday weekend provided all is in order.

    What could possibly go wrong ?

    I am no expert on this but my initial concern was what unexpected events could make this horrible ? 2 minutes on Google advised that Tsunamis hit the US (admitting it's incredibly rare) and the most likely states include Alaska.

    A Tsunami would be horrible. A Tsunami followed by a nearly endless supply of thick Radioactive waste washing up onto Alaskan shores would be 1000 times worse.

    Perhaps we can find some enthusiasm for the Blue party. Maybe, hopefully, possibly....
