Oh, so that's what it looked like - I was listening to the radio. Thx, Mrs S.

ps. this is not saying Biden wins TN in the general, just an overall note of the energy that is still there, especially now that there is a central figure they can get behind.
Oh, you're from TN. So sorry about the Nashville area!
Yeah, heard on public radio- quick interview someone had lost their house but were not giving up their vote!

A seven-hour wait to vote is a poll tax.

We need to restore the Voting Rights Act and stop Republican elected officials from shutting down polling sites.

The last voter at Texas Southern University has walked out of the voting booth. It took Hervis Rogers nearly 7 hours to vote tonight. #supertuesday2020
Was thinking earlier today if the weather is decent enough (no snow, ice or cold rain) after I vote maybe i can be a placeholder on a voting line.

Maddow just asked Bernie to explain why anyone should believe that he's going to win because of an increase in the youth vote when the youth vote was down yesterday and his response was to say he hadn't seen those numbers.

Yeah the whole Joe Biden voted for the Iraq War isn't really going to hit home for people. We all know that the Senate was lied to about WMD's. I'm not happy that he voted for it but I would never hinge my vote on that.

It boggles my mind that an 80 year old who is also a career politician doesn't know that the youth almost never turn out. If Bernie's depending on the youth and first time voters to win he's going to lose. It's the political equivalent of late-50s U2 thinking the kids will propel their single to #1.

It was a mistake, I don't think it's disqualifying but I do think the needs to find a better answer than the fabricated "when the war started, I was immediately against it." Not only is it verifiably untrue but it makes him sound defensive. Just say, it was a mistake, Bush & Co lied, we were naive to believe them and won't make that mistake again with the current lying liars in the White House. And move on. This is really rehashing old news that nobody cares about anymore (rightly or wrongly).

Opinions? If Biden makes it, is there any chance he goes with a man for his VP?

Woah! Glad you're ok.

One time when we had a big hurricane, not sure it was Sandy, laid a sheet down in the windowless hallway threw my coat over me and slept some.

Q: Bernie, why are you doing poorly with the black vote?

A: Cause Obama and Bill Clinton were popular with black people.

Ummmmm what?

Oh and you gotta love how he tried to just basically say that Biden is popular with blacks because Obama is his black friend.

Given how suburban ladies turned out for him, I think he owes them.

I put chances at 80%+.

Unless he tries to pull a reverse ‘08 and goes Booker.

I wonder if Rosario will want to extend her contract that long.

Bernie Sanders' stubbornness regarding his vision for what's best for this country is admirable, and has helped him create a tremendous grassroots movement and incredibly loyal base.

It's also what will prevent him from being President.

I think the topper might be about if he asked for the Clyburn endorsement, and he said, “I know Jim, I respect him, but his politics aren’t my politics”.

Huh... why is it that you’re struggling with AA voters again?

Since I’m on record, for the record, she’s left of him but not too left. She’s not white, she’s a she, and most importantly she isn’t a million years old.

The only downfall to Kamala for Biden is that she doesn’t come with a home state that’s she can influence.

I'm with you, think Harris would be a solid VP choice for Uncle Joe.

Would enjoy seeing her debate Mother's boy. She'd fare a hell of a lot better than Tim Kaine did.
