        Phone banking like a fiend until the polls close on election day. Getting my suffragette pantsuit ready for the big party. It won’t be like 2008 or 2012, but it will be historic & satisfying.

      What Comey did was irresponsible. This must be a lesson for future Democratic Presidents to not appoint Republicans to high positions in their administrations. This is what you get.

        November 1, 2016 at 11:41 am

        pkayden, I can understand why you are leery, but, don’t let this bad apple spoil the whole cart. Imagine what our Presidential Administration and Government would look like and operate if when a Republican becomes President and all he/she picks are Republicans to hold office. We’re experiencing some of that already via judicial appointments.

        Plus, remember and try to apply PBO’s rule of trying to reach across the aisle.

        Comey will rue the day he crossed PBO.

          It’s just frustrating how Comey has thrown such a huge wrench into Secretary Clinton’s candidacy. I’m furious that Comey has given Trump a lift when he is supposed to be neutral as the head of the FBI. I really have a hard time looking at any Republican in a positive light. I respect POTUS’ attempts at bipartisanship but note that these attempts are not reciprocated.

    I just received my weekly campaign email and these two items were listed!!!!
    **Need some motivation to keep you going or get out here? We’ve got two for you.
    Listen to President Obama’s special message to Hillary’s volunteers.
    Join us for a special call TODAY with Marlon Marshall, the campaign’s Director of State Campaigns and Political engagement on why CA matters. Tuesday November 1 at 5:30 pm PT
    Come November 9th, we want to celebrate, rejoice, and know that through it all, we were stronger together. But, we are not there yet. There are no guarantees.

    Nevada and Arizona need our help! Because of California’s amazing reputation for bright, open- minded, and positive volunteers, we have been called upon to participate in their GOTV to make sure that, in fact, residents are getting out to vote.

    We are providing transportation to make it much easier to participate.

    The sexism in this campaign really hasn’t been talked about all that much outside of the Access Hollywood tape, perhaps because we all just know it is there. But it is perhaps the largest factor in determining support for DT.

    Here are two big ones we’re following closely. As you know, the RNC remains under a consent decree from the 1980s tied to intimidation of black voters. That decree is set to end next year. But Democrats are trying to argue that it needs to be extended because of evidence that Republicans are violating it this year. A judge in New Jersey has ordered Republicans to turn over by tomorrow a substantial amount of information about their activities this year. He has not ordered the Democrats to keep that information confidential. So at least at the moment it seems like the Democrats can publicize whatever they find.

    • 71 57andfemale
      November 1, 2016 at 1:46 pm

      Because she’s not just mean-spirited, she’s an idiot. There is no “early voting” in PA, as you well know. Just absentee. Which means nothing.

      These rooms are so vibrant and alive! A beautiful melding of the new with the traditional. They show that traditional is not old-fashioned and passe, but is very up to date when mixed with modern art and accessories. Just love this. The rooms look elegant AND comfortable, a mix not always achieved. Bravo to Mrs. Obama and Smith. The Obamas have been superb stewards of the country and the White House.

      Sigh….i pray TOD that we do not lose our contact with each other and with the President and First Lady…Sasha and Malia…Mrs Robinson…

    It really disgusts me how Comey has brought the entire FBI into disrepute. This is going to make it hard going forward to agents to be trusted, and their credibility to be sustained. Looking forward to his “comeuppance” as my mother would say.

      Unbelievable …..

      This head-scratching account reactivation came just two days after FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that the agency was looking into more emails potentially tied to its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state.

      Comey was at the heart of the scandal that erupted from Clinton’s 2001 pardoning of Rich, a financier who lingered on the FBI’s most-wanted list for 16 years for criminal charges including tax evasion, wire fraud and trading with Iran during the oil embargo. Comey oversaw Rich’s prosecution between 1987 and 1993, before later taking over an investigation into then-President Clinton’s decision to grant Rich a pardon on his last day in office. He ultimately decided not to pursue that case.

      An FBI spokesman did not immediately respond Tuesday to TPM’s request for comment.

          It’s verified with a blue checkmark. But it has been dormant since last year, which makes it all the more curious as to why now these Bill Clinton files from since 2001 are being released through this account.

    Recap:So the FBI released a vague letter on huma server and weiner on Friday… Dems demanded clarity they only got a warrant for her server..

    Then word also comes out that trump firmer campaign manager is being investigated by FBI for Russian connections but comey didn’t way to say anything Bc to close to election.

    Then just now FBI released a statement on that says that investigation turned up little evidence on criminal activity.

    Still zero word however on huma server abd the vague description that republicans jumped all over?

    Still think they are not playing favorites? 👎👎👎😩😩

    “I was confused when I saw the dad handing things to passengers,” said Kahan. “But once I read the note I thought it was the sweetest thing in the world.” In the note the dad let passengers know that their participation would “be making her Halloween,” but that’s one part where he’s wrong. He made everyone’s Halloween.

    Also, notice how the so-called FBI keeps dropping these letter/files on days that POTUS rallies for HRC in order to drown out his message?

    The FBI Comey letter was sent on Friday (POTUS ralled in Orlando FL). Now the irrelevant Bill Clinton files are dropped today just as he’s going to rally in Columbus Ohio.
