1. He'll get the anti-Hillary support

Don't be surprised at how many people will support him if he's her only challenger.
What makes you say that he's not electable?

27. Yes. People are sick and tired of the Clinton Drama

puking sick of it. A year and a half more of them defending themselves against all kinds of accusations, whether true or false, distracts from talking about what needs to be talked about. Instead it will be a long running fucking soap opera.

Wake Up, America.

18. You are practicing guilt by association at its very worst.

Martin O'Malley had nothing to do with Hart's personal life, and O'Malley's personal life has been exemplary. He has been married to the same woman and he has four children.

9. Because to become president (especially without a corrupt SCOTUS), one needs to have a path to 270

Gary Hart's doppleganger has a path to about 35.

I myself would vote for a winner, like Deval Patrick or Cory Booker or Jerry Brown or Janet Napolitano

16. What states will he win the primary in?

In NY, do you think he would get more than 1%?

In NJ, in California, in PA, in all the blue states, which ones would he win?

Biden would win Maryland and Delaware
Cory or Kirsten would win NJ and possibly NY
Deval would win Mass.
Jerry would win the entire West, North and Southwest and the nomination.

Hart's doppleganger brings nothing to the table nor any Democratic party bases

He would be as useless to winning the national election as Eugene was in 1968 In fact, Eugene's fans
threw the election to Nixon basically.

President Jerry Brown sounds good to me, I voted for him 3 times including in 1992.
Michelle Obama vice President sounds even better.

Michelle Obama? Be serious.

I don't give a crap about any of that.

This isn't a damn horse race, it's an election. I vote for whom I think would be the best person for the job. Period.

I don't necessarily agree that California is the greatest. I've never lived there, so I have no opinion.

20. It depends on whom the Republicans nominate. But there is a school of thought being mentioned

at DU often that the Republican field is so weak that virtually any mainstream Democratic candidate would probably win. So why not nominate a bona fide progressive rather than a retread like Clinton? The meme that they must nominate Clinton because she is the only candidate who can win is false IMO.

40. So, I'm beginning to have second thoughts about Mr O'Malleys campaign for president.

I heard this morning on the Melissa Harris-Perry show that as mayor, O'Malley had on average, 27 thousand black people a year arrested, that were not even charged with anything. Not good...not good at all.

41. Ever been to Baltimore?

Parts of the City look like Beirut (after the War)

I'll look up the reason why but those streets need to be cleaned up.

Baltimore is definitely a "working class" city, My SO is from the City. Although she says she can no longer show me the street she grew up on, it's become that unsafe
