    You have to appreciate the Dems sweeping out the Repubs in Orange County California. Orange County is like Palm Beach Florida, the place drips in money and wealth, generational wealth at that. So for the Dems to not only win, but utterly destroy the Republican Party in Orange County is a thing of beauty.

    Good Morning TOD…..

      Good morning , Don! Congratulations on First! How right you are. A monumental shift. A great awakening and rising in a place where it was an uphill battle in every way. Beautiful thought on.

      us informed engaged aware and also uplifted and reminded. Means more now than ever before.

      Congratulations, Don. Yes, that victory in Reagan country was sweet revenge. More Californians are probably angry with the dotard after his visit to the horrendous fire area. His willful ignorance is killing people.

    Wouldn’t President Obama make a wonderful Secretary of State for the next Democratic president?

    A feature, not a bug for Republicans in charge. They can not change the demographics, so they make things much more difficult. VRA, anyone?

    The people of Florida spoke. It should be implemented immediately. I’m pretty sure there wasn’t a qualifier in the Prop question!

      I mean if you’re the Governor of Florida and Georgia where can you go within your own state where you won’t be viewed as a cheater and a racist? You can’t really enjoy your Governorship knowing that the tide has changed and it is only a matter of time before you are swept out of office.

        Good. They are tainted and should feel that every day they are in office. They couldn’t win w/o cheating. They couldn’t win on their own. I think this is despicable and I hope this fact haunts them both for all their stolen days in office.

        I agree, Don.

        Yes, they “won”, but did they really?

        I have the same thoughts about murderous cops (and that zero Zimmerman) who are let off by bad juries or prosecutors who refuse to hold them to account. They’re “free” to go about as they please, but their notoriety precedes them.

    What our President said about his wife!!! What pride, love and respect . My favorite line,.”If she was the mother of my children I knew my children would turn out extraordinary.” Melted my heart. He was right and he hit the jackpot when he walked into her office.

    Thanks to all who attended my presentation at the Orpheum last night in Phoenix. During the Q&A portion, someone asked me which camera was my favorite one. I replied it was whatever camera I had with me; and then mentioned that I had left my camera in an Uber the day before. Here’s the full story: I didn’t even realize that I had left the camera behind. The Uber driver–Sebastian–was alerted by his next passenger that there was a camera on the floor of the car. Sebastian then let Uber know; Uber called me and left both a voicemail and e-mail message. I then contacted Sebastian directly and asked if he could return the camera the following day. He told me he was also a manager for the Olive Garden and was on duty the next day but could meet at night. I told him that I was speaking at the Orpheum and could meet him after my talk. Late last night, Sebastian texted me that he was on his way to my hotel in Phoenix. When he arrived, the camera was wrapped safely in a jacket in the trunk of his car. He told me that somewhere along the line, he had figured out who I was and that this wasn’t just a “normal” camera (it was a Canon 5DM4). I thanked him for returning the camera, giving him a cash reward and a signed copy of Shade. He had an additional request: he asked if I could sign a picture of mine that he had printed out from online. But here’s the thing, it wasn’t for him. Sebastian was making this request for a dishwasher that he managed at the Olive Garden who had an interest in photography. There are a lot of good and honest people in this country and Sebastian is one of them.

      I just got total chills reading Pete’s post. First, what a man he is, and he shows it every day. Second, that pic of President Obama. Third, the story – all the wonderful people he must meet, just for doing his job, continuing to love and respect his (obviously) favorite president … and all the people he meets who do their jobs in such a kind manner, etc., etc.

      Chills, I tell ya! #HOPE

    Thank you NW for your beautiful work and bringing us the fab Valerie Jarrett interview.
    Our beloved 1st Couple go on entrancing and dancing with us. Don’t you think recognition at first sight can be very strong. I had notably three: First was a man from Dominica (fiancé) who was my outrageous twin ‘me’ except a different color; the other was a shy Canadian math guy; and finally a great Indian spiritual Master (woman). /Millions probably saw the Future at first sight of PBO – i broke down right away! forever blessed.

    “…this is no time for on-the-job training”:
    “What the nation will need when the 116th Congress is seated in January is a speaker who is an experienced leader who not only knows where the levers of power are, but who also knows how to use them and, most importantly, isn’t afraid to use them — whether it is against the president or a raucous caucus hellbent on taking premature action against him. That person is Pelosi. She’s done the job. She must do the job again.” (Jonathan Capehart, wapo)

      Somebody CANCEL Trump’s twitter account please. He’s had his fun run and now it’s time to end his bulletins from his toilet seat.

        Mueller’s confirmation didn’t require Senate confirmation. Also his career history is well-known while Whitaker’s corrupt “masculine toilet” and 26 million fine for ripping people off. Trump mini-me should’ve been confirmed. On your bike Trumpletown!

    Rick Scott won senate race by 10,000 votes

    1.7 million people, including 500,000 African Americans, were disenfranchised in FL in 2018

    He only restored voting rights to 3,000 – 2x as many whites as blacks

    This is how Scott won https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2018/10/inside-the-unlikely-movement-that-could-restore-voting-rights-to-1-4-million-floridians/

      Bobfr…it always surprises me that Trump and the repugs get the support of the military. Do you think this could make even a dent in his base? The veteran that gave Trump his purple heart…remember that? Trump acts so tough but inside he nothing but air…hot air.
