Happy Birthday Senator Ted Kennedy.For those that appreciated the 2nd greatest Senator ever-

and yes, I am aware many here on Discussionist do not think highly of Senator Kennedy and the Democratic party, but this is for those, like myself, on Discussionist who did.

Way too long to even find what 4 paragraphs to post.
this is a great well written remembrance of Senator Ted Kennedy.

The rules are known beforehand, and ironically Bernie's top senior operative Tad Devine

wrote the rules that Bernie's fanclub doesn't now like

Bernie should fire Tad Devine, one of the dirtiest playas in politics.

Tad took down Bill Bradley and with Bradley, ended any chance of Wellstone getting the nom in 2000
of VP (Wellstone had all the same qualifications of Lieberman, plus 100x better and more well known..
Tad took down Howard Dean and Mike Dukakis

Tad brought in super delegates to stop insurgent candidates like George McGovern from getting the nominination and now this years McGovern is Bernie

Question is- did Bernie know or care that this was his top senior operative?
If he didn't know, he should have
If he did know, then Bernie is quite not what he appears to be
Because Tad Devine, Bernies senior operative is the same as Karl Rove, the Republican senior operative.

Don't say I didn't attempt to get this heard the last 7 months, because I kept saying Tad Devine over and over
and over.

Bernie's fan club should demand that Tad be fired.
(instead of ignoring the problem that Tad is. He failed Bernie big time. Better to clean house.
And Tad and the other one should have been fired when it was found out they were peaking into Hillary)

If ever a connection was looked into, Tad Devine is the one.

any google into Tad Devine's wiki shows how Tad has been the consummate insider person they go to
for this for 50 years.

Yet everyone blames everyone else.

later on, Tad will be blamed on Hillary, just watch and see.

If the fix is in, then Tad is most certainly the fix himself.

The thingy is, Bernie never ran to win. And as recently as a month ago, Bernie wasn't running to win
(his statement in Debate 1 showed that.)
Perhaps he still isn't. Perhaps his big ego got the better of him. Perhaps he didn't realize
Perhaps he did.

Naïve I am not, am I?

One thing Bernie fans could do, right now, the Bernie Revolution can start social media blitzing the Republicans to confirm President Obama's choice. Be relentless

after all, getting the nominee confirmed, isn't that what will bring about the eventual overturning CU?
Which Bernie must want, no?
Now is the time, not after election. Now

This is something Bernie's fan club can do right this minute and be relentless until the nominee is confirmed.

President Obama will most likely endorse Hillary sooner, rather than later

President Barack Obama Will most likely officially Endorse Hillary Rodham Clinton Sooner Rather than Later
Customarily, sitting presidents avoid making an endorsement in primary season, so as to avoid unduly influencing the process. Not always, though—Bill Clinton endorsed Al Gore, and LBJ endorsed Hubert H. Humphrey, among others.

So, will Barack Obama sit the primaries out or not? It appears that the answer is "no." To a large extent, his preference is already known: He feels a sense of loyalty to his former secretary of state, and he also hasn't forgotten that Bernie Sanders tried to recruit a more progressive challenger in 2012. Further, he's dropped increasingly less subtle hints as to his favored successor in interviews and in speeches. On Wednesday, he delivered an address that argued for the importance of flexibility and compromise over rigid adherence to ideology, and essentially invoked Hillary's debate line: "Progressives are people who make progress."

On March 15, Obama will vote in the primaries in his home state of Illinois. At that point, he will almost certainly have to let the Hillary out of the bag. The only question, then, is if he will lay his cards on the table sooner, perhaps in hopes of influencing the outcome on Super Tuesday. (Z)
