    Don’t want to highjack this thread, but wanted to bring my comment over. It’s reply to Bill about Hillary winning OH. Maybe he can “talk me down.” Like all the rest of you, I want Bernie and his gang gone!!!!!!!!!

    I am concerned though because it is another open primary state. Feel much more secure in the closed states. She was leading in MI too and look what happened. In these open states, lots of people are “playing” with their votes. I’ve heard numerous callers on all the Sirrus XM progressive shows I listen to admit that. One caller this morning was seriously thinking of voting for Kasich instead of Bernie because she wants to ‘help’ Kasich win OH.

      I liked it when Obama used to say when the audience booed his opponent, “Don’t boo, vote!” Did Bernie do that or just encourage the reaction as Trump is doing at his rallies? Silence is encouragement. A leader is one that also teaches behaviors.

      I coached my second grade daughter’s soccer team for two years when soccer was becoming a competitor to Little League baseball. I had previously taught k thru sixth grade PE when Coca Cola was sending out Pele soccer videos to America’s school PE programs. I coached in the late 80’s. One thing I was able to do that was very rewarding was to teach the players’ parents how to support the team in a positive way and to promote acceptance and good sportsmanship. I tried to instigate the long goals instead of it just being about winning. It was a rare opportunity due to the parents being unfamiliar with the game. I had hated the usual nasty parental berating of players and pressure to succeed hurting children’s self esteem I had seen in Little League. I am only using this as a point that a person in a leadership role can influence those around them. My daughter’s team won the District Championship those two years with the most supportive positive parents around, but best of all they had fun, learned basic skills, and learned to include even the little girl that must have been autistic that would just eat the buttercups on the field.

      Lastest poll out today, Hillary +14. Yes, the open primary invites disruption. Too many Hillary voters in MI – 7%- to be precise switched over to stop Trump. I think the Hillary campaign is getting the word out, not to mess with the GOP primary and not to take the nomination for granted. Hopefully these voters get the message.

      Pretty good analysis here, predicts Hillary expands delegate lead by 100-200, expanded popular vote margin, mainly because of huge margins in Fl, NC.: http://www.dailynewsbin.com/news/march-15th-predictions-hillary-clinton-vs-bernie-sanders-in-florida-ohio-illinois-more/24112/

      Meanwhile Nate Silvers predictions: Hillary victories in Fl -99+%, NC 99+%, OH 95 %, IL 90%, MO 55%

      I said downthread that my office full of Republicans is voting for Bernie just to make mischief. They know the GOP will destroy him in the GE.

      I don’t care if it’s close – that’s a draw and the delegate count is what matters, although the press acts like it’s winner take all. And Bernie can’t wait to get away from huge voter blocks of POC, which is just disgusting.

    I can’t WAIT to see Hamilton!!!!

    I work in an office full of Republicans, and they are all voting for Bernie so Hillary doesn’t become the nominee. God. I’m expecting BS to take IL narrowly due to the open primary.

      I know. I’m reading this all over social media. These open primaries are not helpful. You have republicans deciding who is winning our primaries. It is going to hurt her tomorrow in Illinois and Ohio for sure.

        OH is semi-closed, but I’m not sure how that works. Primaries should be closed. Members of the party should be the ones choosing their nominee.

      And the clueless Sandersbots think that Bernie’s just getting GOP votes because they like his message. The naivete.

    Watched TNN TRUMP NEWS and they had Donna Brazile, Clay Aiken, a AA pastor for trump and someone else. The beauty model/moderator allowed the pastor to go on & on how Bernie Sanders needs to be saved quoting biblical versus. Where do they find these ignorant people. US political process is an all out circus due to money. TV &Cable gets so much money that they give the crazies free air time so people will watch. Its time to boycott cable news.

      “the pastor to go on & on how Bernie Sanders needs to be saved quoting biblical versus”

      What the hell? This really is getting crazy! I stick to a few shows on MSNBC but mostly get my news on this website, Balloon Juice, Little Green Footballs, Joe My God, the Stephanie Miller Show, the Majority Report and a few more leftwing websites. I completely ignore CNN since it appears that they’ve gone to the dogs.

        That right there tells you drumpf is a NAZI, campaigning as a NAZI, establishing a national NAZI party and would implement HITLER’s genocide programs as president.

    “As President Obama said, to retreat into tribalism at this moment is dangerous. While the forces of a changing America and increasing globalization are unsettling and challenging, it is a recipe for disaster to simply identify with those who think/look like ourselves and draw battle lines with those who don’t. The goal is not to assume we can all agree with each other on everything – but to be able to see and value the humanity of those with whom we don’t.”

    #######################

    i had asked …how do we diffuse the hate…the anger…and the racism….
    perhaps we can do it this way…using the words of PBO as a guide…The goal is not to assume we can all agree with each other on everything – but to be able to see and value the humanity of those with whom we don’t.”

    I think of the families of the people who were killed in Charleston….how they were able to forgive…….

    someone asked: why is it that blk folks always seem to be the ones reaching out…forgiving…understanding…i do not know… perhaps there is something special about us honed from years of struggling and suffering ….and on occasion winning

    but we have white folks shouting hatred on the left and right….descending into what the President calls Tribalism

    i o not know the path that we can take…but i do know that the time is now for the ObamaCoalition to be heard….Loud and Sure

    CNN had a tagline that “Sheriff investigating whether Trump incited a riot” – anybody know which Sheriff?

    Love our FLOTUS! She has done so much for mentoring, military families, girls’ education, food justice and the arts, etc…..

    I would love to see someone do a compilation, like what PCTC has of PBO’s accomplishments, but for FLOTUS’ accomplishments.
