Cocktail party tonight?

Should we watch the fallout from Super Tuesday together?

If Creamsicle wins, we can make some bold predictions. Or at least have a few brief moments of schafenfreude while the Republicans freak out.

What say you all?

  1. I’ll be at work so I’ll probably get to hear the outcome of this slo-mo train wreck late or Wednesday.

  2. RD, I am not sure that even if Trump wins big tonight that he will get the nomination. The entire Republican hierarchy is determined to stop him, at the convention, if not before. A third party run by Trump or the Establishment Republicans might be fun, but it would bring out all the conservatives to vote, and hurt us in Senate races. So I don’t quite know what to root for tonight on their side, although I think that Trump is easier to run against than any of the others. So I’ll just root for for Hillary to win at least nine, hopefully ten, states tonight, which will put her in very commanding position, and hopefully keep the media from pushing Sanders for the next few months.

  3. I will be working until 10 EST but will check in through the evening. Hillary looks to have a good day! So much nicer than last year…and I’m so much calmer… 🙂 Trump’s support is falling nationwide; today’s CNN poll release has him trailing Clinton. Must be that endorsement from the American Nazi Party…

  4. PS: If anyone else is watching the margins, according to the Cook Report and 538, in order to stay on track for (and clinch, really) the nomination today, she needs 65% of the vote in AL, 57% in AR, 44% in CO, 63% in GA, 44% in MA, 39% in MN, 48% in OK and TN, 56% in TX, 8% in VT (!), and 54% in VA. She’s up above almost all of those in the polls.

  5. So far, we’ve got Trump trying to capture a national audience by holding a worthless press conference tonight. We have Gloria Borger for about the nine thousandth time, talking about Hillary’s “trust issue.” I have no idea what it is that people would not trust her about, but Gloria will hold onto that until November.

    And then we have Bill Press, who obviously supported Obama over Hillary in ’08, and then recently has written a book about how “Obama Let Progressives Down.” Now he is supporting Sanders. Which only shows one that the Latte Left doesn’t learn a thing. If he and Sanders can manage to screw up Hillary’s chances this tine, he will cheerfully look forward to another Democratic loss in 2020, unless the climate is too hot to hold elections. I do think that Sanders intends to go all the way to the convention, hold floor flights, and thus force Hillary to face attacks from all the Republicans, plus the Democratic Left, a very unhelpful thing.

    • Yes. Just heard his campaign mgr. say ‘we are going all the way to the convention; we will see you in Philadephia.’ Yikes.

    • Sanders and his supporters have the same right to fight to the bitter end that Clinton and her supporters had in 2008.

      By the way, I was very disappointed that Clinton accepted orders from the Bilderberg Society in its Chantilly, Virginia meeting to suspend her campaign. I wanted to see her and her supporters mount the most ugly and vicious floor fight possible. My worst of all possible motives for wanting to see her do that were because I wanted to see her . . . Shut The F***er Down and Make The System Scream. (I voted for Kucinich in the Michigan Primary, after all).

      Whereas in the Sanders case, I want to see how strong or weak the Sanders movement ends up actually being. I hope Sanders ends up strong enough to force some genuine New Deal type policies upon a Candidate Clinton and also perhaps even force her to drop and abandon some of her Neo Conservative and Neo Liberal and Right-To-Protect Interventionist advisers. But if his movement is shown to be weak and few, that is something we might as well learn as fast and for-real as possible.

  6. Very good speech by Hillary tonight. Hit a nice series of connected themes.

    If we could win Massachusetts and Minnesota and Colorado, there is no way that Sanders supporters could spin this as a good night. I would even take two of these.

    It just occurred to me today that all this anger among people showing up in the polls is largely a result of the “Reagan Revolution,” which ended up in deregulating most industries, and almost destroying the middle class, which has not been able to rebound since then.

    • And RD, if Hillary wins, I am sure that she will do everything she can to address income inequality and the power of multinational corporations to essentially fix wages. Of course there is so much work to do, and a Republican Congress which will try to completely stymie her. She is very resourceful, however, and she will rebuild the Democratic Party on the state level.

      • I’m more worried about income instability. Gotta tackle that before you can even think about inequality.
