    The media is broken.

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib cursing got 5 times more coverage on cable news than Rep. Steve King embracing white supremacy
    It isn't just the amount of coverage that shows a clear difference in how these stories were covered. The day after Tlaib cursed, congressional Democrats appearing on cable news were consistently asked for their response to her comment. While some Republicans have issued condemnations of King, cable news doesnít have the same urgency in asking elected Republicans to respond to Kingís comments.

    The imbalance in coverage between these stories raises serious questions about just what stories cable news considers newsworthy and whether thereís a double standard in coverage of Democrats versus Republicans.

    The Dems gotta be careful though, going with a far left candidate like Warren is pretty risky IMO. All they need is a sane, decent moderate candidate and they are a shoe in to get the white house.
    Gonna be interesting thats for sure.

    Pass. Centrism has failed the country repeatedly. Time for something new. I don't think it's nearly as risky as you do.

    I think it's risky as the progressives are too concentrated in certain areas of the country which will allow the Electoral College to work against them. Now, if our system only had the popular vote then I would agree with you.

    Centrism has a much better record than socialism, and i think most of America still realizes that. We shall see.

    Centrism has a better record than fascism too and look what happened in 2016.

    All im saying is that its an easy win if you go with any decent not very far left candidate. Go far left and you might have Trump again.

    Trumpís going to be working out a deal where he avoids prison time by spending his remaining time on this planet on some island (Elba, perhaps?).

    This is the moment to go for some real change. Demos have spent far too long apologizing for being Democratís and not nearly enough making a case for the left.

    Eh, I think itís more about how you articulate it. I think having a lot of baggage (like Hillary) is a bigger issue, which would be my concern about Warren.

    Agreed. I just hope enough of America does too.

    He would still be even money against Warren.

    I don't know how you can say that without knowing what happens once the Mueller shoe drops.

    I think the porn star payoff case in NY is at minimal as potentially bad for Trump.

    I'm hoping the Mueller probe shows Trump as a crook and a Russian patsy that I think he is.

    Everything is about how you articulate it. What baggage does Warren have?
    Take car. Go to Mum's. Kill Phil - "Sorry." - grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over. How's that for a slice of fried gold?

    Her whole ancestry thing hasnít helped her with the right or left. And I think her twitter fights with Trump could make it harder for her to claim she will unite people.

    Aside from all that, Iíd put money against the economy being in as good as a place as it is now. And if that is the case, Trumpís low approval ratings could get even lower

    That is so trivial. It's only a thing because the GOP is telling people it's a thing. They are going to do that with any Dem. Stop caring about what the opposition party says, put the best candidates forward, and support them fully. The Dems are their own worst enemy. They suck at politics.
