2nd Electoral College voter considers not voting for Clinton

A second Democratic elector in Washington state says he is considering the possibility of not voting for Hillary Clinton if she wins the state's popular vote, which would mean the former secretary of state may need more electoral votes than Donald Trump.

In some scenarios that is all it would take, 2 of these horrible fucking assholes to do this, and the decision goes to the house controlled by GOP

Isnt that right?

Anyway, these people need to be identified and there needs to be a loud, voracious campaign to tell them to do their fucking jobs.

Amazing how successful the brainwashing has been. Bernie needs to PERSONALLY talk to these people.

LeBron James now campaigning with Hillary Clinton in Ohio.

http://www.cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf ... hilla.html

I never held a grudge at LeBron for leaving Miami; way I look at it, we got a chance to enjoy having him while he was here.

My impression - as somebody who follows sports less than most - was that he really was, for once, an NBAer who tried to be a good role model.

Anyway -- his message today could not be more timely.

I became a big fan the more I learned about him. As a Warriors fan I am pissed at him for last year, of course, but as a man he is quite something.

Final newspaper endorsement count: Clinton 57, Trump 2 - The Hill

Quote:
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has received fewer endorsements from the editorial boards of the nation's largest newspapers than any major-party presidential candidate in history.

Among the top 100 largest newspapers in America, just two — the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville — endorsed Trump. The Review-Journal is owned by Sheldon Adelson, the casino magnate who has spent millions trying to elect Trump.
"Donald Trump, despite all of his faults, is best suited to blow up the inbred corruption of the Washington-New York elites," the Times-Union wrote in a Sunday editorial.

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has received endorsements from 57 newspaper editorial boards across the country, including papers such as the Dallas Morning News, the Arizona Republic and the San Diego Union-Tribune, conservative bastions that have almost always backed Republicans.

...

Even Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson has had more success with editorial boards than Trump. This weekend, the Charleston Post & Courier became the fourth paper to back Johnson.

Lady Gaga lately has been tweeting images showing her wearing her Suffragette costume.

I've always liked this remix of "Bad Romance". She appears at the end.

EDIT: here's the longer version.
www.youtube.com Video from : www.youtube.com


The music video focuses on Suffragette Alice Paul, founder of the National Women's Party, the nation's first feminist/suffragette third party.

I think it's very appropriate to watch, given the probability that the U.S. may just finally elect, 8 decades after women's suffrage, its first female president.

Two points about scenes you see in the video:

1. Alice Paul was put in an insane asylum because people literally considered her crazy for thinking women should have the right to vote. See the etymology of the word "hysteria".
2. The deciding vote for women's suffrage was cast by a young man (remember, only men could vote on it beforehand) who was told to "Remember the Ladies" by his mother, history was made by a Mama's Boy.

There's some debate over who was the first woman to run for president. Many folks would say Victoria Woodhull, who ran in 1872, but there is some debate over her eligibility (besides her gender, that is). It was pretty brave to run before women had the franchise.

Allow me to remind that Hillary Clinton's strongest constituency is women, even, white, uneducated, Republican, suburban, and conservative women. (Though those latter groups to a lesser extent.)

OK. I know. It's another celebrity endorsement. Well, look, it's the Boss. That's gotta count for something - no?

See Bruce Springsteen Perform Solo Set, Rip Trump at Clinton Rally
"Hillary’s candidacy is based on intelligence, experience, preparation and of an actual vision of America where everyone counts," rocker says
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/ ... ly-w449082

"The choice tomorrow couldn’t be any clearer. Hillary’s candidacy is based on intelligence, experience, preparation and of an actual vision of America where everyone counts," Springsteen said. "Men and women, white and black, Hispanic and native. Where folks of all faiths and backgrounds can come together to address our problems in a reasonable and thoughtful way. That vision of America is essential to sustain, no matter how difficult its realization."

Springsteen also took some time to address Clinton's opponent Donald Trump, who the rocker has previously called "a moron."

"This is a man whose vision is limited to little beyond himself, who has the profound lack of decency that would allow him to prioritize his own interests and ego before American democracy itself," Springsteen said. "Somebody who would be willing to damage our long-cherished and admired system rather than look to himself for the reasons behind his own epic failure. And that's unforgivable. Tomorrow, those ideas and that campaign is going down."

Springsteen concluded, "Let's all do our part so we can look back on 2016 and say we stood with Hillary Clinton on the right side of history. That's why I'm standing here with you tonight, for the dream of a better America."

If Warren Buffett can drive people to the polls, supporting Hillary, you Bernie people sure as hell can.

Warren is putting his pocketbook on the line, and while it is the right thing to do, something most of us libs would do, most of these types usually do NOT.

Hillary Clinton's first public appearance, since her concession speech.

She speaks before MW Edelman's Children's Defense Fund.

I am remarkably disinterested. Her clout is remarkably comparable to my clout, or your's.

Anyone want to remark on that?

Dunno. I doubt she will ever run for any other political office.

She probably will continue working at the Clinton Foundation, but there can't even be hypothetical conflicts of interest, as she holds no political office.

She will continue to be a public figure. I can think of lots of people in the same position who will never again hold office. Gary Hart, John Edwards, Eliot Spitzer. They still are relevant to the public discourse.

I guess some people are still interested in what she thinks or feels after a terrible letdown. I mean, she still is a human being, too.

"Clout" isn't the only relevant basis for listening to a person, I think ... even an ex-politician.

There certainly seemed to have been a lot of curiosity on the part of the media if she would talk about why she feels she lost - heck, even people blaming the 2016 loss entirely on her personally might wonder how much responsibility she owns up to.

P.S. I'm sure there will be some pundit analysis on that, after they go through it.

I dont know I would expect that this experience builds her up a bit. That ultimately improves her ability to empathize and understand things other people are going through in regards to fairness and justice. not that it was pleasant or desired outcome.

Sure, I can remark on that.


I don't think your are correct in saying that her clout is remarkably comparable to that of you, me, or most anybody else.


And, WTF, you gonna just toss Hillary into the dustbin of history before the Electoral College even casts its votes (a little more than a month from now)?


Yeah, you Hillary supporters seem real genuine. *sarcasm*


Dude, it's not yet time to quit.

:arrow: Excerpt from #1 Bestseller "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign" by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes from the chapter titled "Canary In The Auto Plant":

Hillary was so mad she couldn't think straight. She was supposed to be focused on the prep session for that night's Univision debate in Miami, but a potent mix of exhaustion and exasperation bubbled up inside. She'd been humiliated in the Michigan primary the night before, a loss that not only robbed her of a prime opportunity to put Bernie Sanders down for good but also exposed several of her weaknesses. How could she have been left so vulnerable? She knew --or at least she thought she did. The blame belonged to her campaign team, she believed, for failing to hone her message, energize important constituencies and take care of business in getting voters to the polls. And now, Jake Sullivan, her de facto chief strategist, was giving her lip about the last answer she'd delivered in this prep session.

"That's not very good," Sullivan corrected.

"Really?" Hillary snapped back. The room fell silent. "Why don't you do it?"

The command was pointed and sarcastic, but she meant it. So, for the next thirty minutes, there he was, pretending to be Hillary while she critiqued his performance. Every time the Yale lawyer and the former high school debate team champ opened his mouth, Hillary cut him off. "That isn't very good," she'd say. "You can do better." Then she'd hammer him with a Bernie line.

It wasn't Just Sullivan in her crosshairs. She let everyone on her team have it that day. "We haven't made our case," she fumed. "We haven't framed the choice. We haven't done the politics."

"She was visibly, unflinchingly pissed off at us as a group," said one aide who was in the room for the humiliating scene. "And she let us know she felt that way."

Hillary had been up into the wee hours the night before, agitating over her loss. This is because we made poor choices about where we traveled, she thought. She e-mailed Mook to tell him she believed she'd spent too much time in the cities of Detroit and Flint and not enough time in the working-class white suburbs around them. Sensing just how angry she was, Mook responded by putting together a morning conference call so that Hilary could vent. But that didn't settle her; if anything, it left her more perplexed and angry, as her debate-prep team witnessed first hand.


This excerpt really showed some of the problems within the campaign as Hillary once again was true to form Hillary in wanting to cast blame on others instead of herself. Then she was left with all the energy wasted on why? and where did she go wrong? It was really up to the candidate to hone the message and deliver it and to energize constituencies and supporters. Just finished reading the book this morning and I'll be posting some more excerpts later. it really is a good and enlightening read for all us political campaign junkies!
