    I remember that night. I was so disappointed that he lost, then he gave that magnificent speech, and I saw the absolute quality and class of the man, and knew he was going to be the next president. From what I remember, rarely do Iowa and New Hampshire anoint the same person. Now on to “real” America…….the diverse country.

    Perfect for tonight, thank you Nerdy!

    Tonight in her concession speech, Hillary was echoing PBO’s talking points. I would say she’s Fired Up.
    I think I’ll make a contribution to her campaign tomorrow.

    kasichmentum!!! yay, I win!!

    Hillz is losing by 20 points and yet they both split delegates 13/13???

    • February 9, 2016 at 10:15 pm

      Speaking of delegates. There’s been nothing mentioned about Super Delegates. Remember that’s what got Hillary in trouble last time. She will NOT let that happen this time. Aren’t those folks staunch Dems who would never or unlikely support BS?

        Since BS is running against the “establishment”, he probably won’t get many of those delegates.

          I can never quite figure out how Bernie can get away with saying he is not part of the establishment when he has been in politics at least thirty years especially being in Congress in WA DC.

      • February 9, 2016 at 10:20 pm

        She’s got about 350 committed super delegates.

        Didn’t the dems change the rule after 2008 that sd’s are supposed to be neutral?

        I don’t know. The whole process – primaries and GE, delegates, ev’s – they all sound redenculous to me. What a waste of every one’s time, money and efforts. Me likey limey system. 3 to 6 months in a free for all. Whoever wins the max votes, wins.

        • February 10, 2016 at 4:00 am

          They retained the SD system with minor modifications. They can commit and Hillary already has 440 according to latest report. They kept the system so that they can fend off a hostile takeover by some extremist, in this case Bernie Sanders. However in the end she won’t need the SDs to win. As for myself, I agree the whole primary system sucks big time. It’s absurd that these all white “homelands” like IA and NH should front load the system. Too often by the time the primary gets to my state, Oregon, it’s all over.

        TN, I believe that Hillary has over 400 Super Delegates so far. Bernie has two.

    GE TODville.

    Thank you NerdyW for posting this — will savor in full.

    We Obama supporters were really in for a roller-coaster ride during 2008, and the NH loss was just the beginning.

    Some clarity on NH Dems.

    I know NOTHING about NH or politics (except that they more [?] Statehouse reps/senators than CA, which is crazy), but I get the feeling that what they say is true — the South extends north through the Appalachia mountains (which are called the White Mtns in NH).

    From the tweets I’ve seen tonight, the so-called “progressive” Independents cast their vote AGAINST the Black man in the WH.

    More…

    Not watching the NH post-election speeches, but this is excellent from HRC.

    Anyone have anything more specific on what Mayor Nutter said?

    I’m glad some Democrats are calling BS out on this.

      Sorry – I heard Mayor Nutter, and he really meant what he said, but I’m too tired to relate his talking points! I do remember that Van Jones came back at him. Happened on CNN earlier.

      With that, guess I’d better head off to dreamland! Goodnight, TODville.

    ironic the yung’uns voted strongly for the oldest candies.

    • February 10, 2016 at 7:56 am

      But notice they didn’t vote for HRC – who is one of the oldest…These young white Republicans and far left voters of NH respect and WANT the hierarchy of an older white male at the top. It’s no surprise that Carson performed the worst in NH.

    It took 8 years of Bush disaster and a primary between a black man & a white woman to bring some sanity to the US. Now it seems too many are reverting to type. Vote for the old white men. I can understand people voting for Bernie – I cannot understand ANYONE voting for someone who approves torture and whose only policy appears to be building fences. That all the GOPers LIE 99.9% of the time seems to get past the pundit media without a word being spoken against them

    This is a democracy voting to end democracy presumably because they don’t want those people to be part of their democracy, let alone running the show.

    All this hoopla by the media and millions of dollars spent in this state and look at the delegate count as of this minute with 81% reporting.I’m sure this will change once all the votes have been counted but It actually has Hillary getting more delegates than Sanders right now. smh/

    Just wanted to mention just how much BS’s “A future to believe in” signs piss me off. BS’s talks s#!+ about PBO, yet has from day one ripped off elements of his campaign…

    Bill Kristol still going great with his predictions. I think he trolls himself

    The single most likely GOP ticket at this point: Trump-Kasich. The single most likely Dem ticket at this point: Sanders-Warren.

    Good Morning TODVille.

    Scary things: the are common traits between people that voted for Il Douche and Sanders.

  22. February 10, 2016 at 7:39 am

    Have to agree with this one…

    It’s not good when your hopes lie in the past. Sanders will never be an Obama.

      Let me say it better: It’s not good when only memories bring you joy. Sanders and his campaign will never rise to Obama’s level.

      PBO thankfully is more than just a memory – he’s a REALITY, and will be a significant part of this country’s future well-being!! 🙂

      No wonder all the current candidates (GP or Dem) are always trying to compare themselves to him on various levels…

    Good morning everyone:) If Ezra Klein thinks that DT is funny, and entertaining, he’s part of the problem

      DesertFlower, I don’t believe Ezra Klein finds Il Douche amusing. Some pundits do, and that’s what he was saying. In fact, Klein is speaking of The Donald as someone very dangerous that the media have given a free pass or taken lightly. His article rings with my perception of this demagogue, an epithet Klein uses as well.
