    I was in class today and my professor said he thinks Trump is going to get re-elected. Some guy in the class said “I think the only candidate that could beat Trump is probably Tulsi Gabbard”. I was ready to say something like “Not a chance, literally more republicans like Tulsi than democrats, but still none would vote for her” but my social anxiety kept me silent lol

    Interesting that Warren is the best against him there. Wouldn't have thought that.

    Oh yeah that will be mentioned for sure. For a lot of my lower level kids it goes way over their heads unfortunately, but definitely something some of my honor levels students will get. I do get a little nervous because it brings out the political leanings of the kids more strongly which leads to some awkward things being said that I have to try and correct without forcing my beliefs on the kids lol. We got into that territory today a little bit in my honors class because we were talking about different types of governments and socialism was one of the types of democracies. I brought up how Bernie Sanders saying he wants to raise taxes doesn't mean the government is going to have control over all the means of production so calling it socialism is dishonest, how most of Europe is slightly socialist, etc. And one kid raised his hand saying Bernie wanting to give free college or health care is kind of socialist, how he doesn't agree with raising taxes on the rich because those people like Bill Gates worked hard to make that much money and if they paid more in taxes they wouldn't be motivated to do so and etc etc. I had to politely just say that yes that is the argument that people who disagree with Bernie Sanders will make, and got into what some of the arguments against that argument are, etc. It's...not always fun to try and navigate haha. Omg Collins is in the middle of a complete meltdown over the last 5 minutes here.

    Harris, Beto, and Klobuchar also aren’t going going either and, per the article: Seems like more of an indictment of the event and how hastily it was planned, rather than the topic.

    As a Pirate fan, the Vazquez news is extremely upsetting. Not because of what this does to the team of course, but because I can't believe I was cheering for such a piece of shit the past several years. Disgusting excuse of a man.

    TBF I find a few of Warren's proposals to be better than Bernies and vice-versa, and I assume there's a lot of people out there like that. For example, it seems like Warren supports european-style "single payer" which I've said here a lot that I think is actually better policy than what Bernie's proposing with his M4A bill:shrug: I also think it's not just purely a policy thing, it's also a case of who people think the better messenger is and, with their ideas being so similar, I can see many people defaulting to Warren simply because of her demeanor and how ridiculously skilled she has proven to be at explaining the how and why of her ideas in ways that get somewhat detailed while also keeping it simple enough for people to understand. That was one of the 'gifts' that many people said about Bill Clinton when he was running, how he got the "Explainer in Chief" nickname, etc. Add that with the women who are still holding (stupid) grudges against Bernie but who are inclined to be more left wing that HRC was, of course they'd pick Warren over Bernie.

    Sometimes I think about how the polls would look today if some of the candidates that almost ran actually decided to -- like Sherrod Brown, Jeff Merkley, Terry McAullife, John Kerry. You would think if Merkley got some traction it would take some support from Bernie. Brown might take a combo of center-left candidates and progressives. McAullife and Kerry would definitely take from Biden and other more moderate candidates. Not that any of those candidates would realistically get more than 1-2% support anyway.
