      You can't just write off that vote.  Plus, Democrats can totally over do the identity politics thing.  It already hugely turns me off because it's designed just as it is by Republicans to distract you from issues.

      So to be cynical, Schweitzer is running for VP.

        So OK. At the very least, look for someone to snap Warren up in a supporting role. Anything to keep her out of the top slot. I can't help thinking that if she's going to run, something will fall all over itself to get in the way of her succeeding.

        But Booker is "young and exciting" unlike the available white dudes.

        Plus don't underestimate Booker's overweening ambition. He'd love to get this ticket punched.

          color available to run on the ticket. At least I'd guess that's how a lot of white people would see it.

          And he has the charisma thing going on for sure. And that whole saving people from a burning building.

          If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?
