The coalition Democrats have to make to win.

quote [ By working together, the two groups can reach more people and amplify their messages, activists say.

"What we both realize is we're stronger when we operate together," Fells said. ]

This is the first I have seen this attempted...and the good news for me, is that effort came from the black wing.

quote [ “They don’t have the votes to pass this tomorrow,” House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) told reporters on Wednesday. “We believe that they need to start over and do a bill that actually reduces premiums.” ]

Never thought it would die from the right, always thought it would die in the senate from the left.

The Populist Divide in American Politics

quote [ Everyone loves Bernie Sanders. Except, it seems, the Democratic party

Sanders was asked what the party stands for. Here's his response:

You’re asking a good question, and I can’t give you a definitive answer. Certainly there are some people in the Democratic Party who want to maintain the status quo. They would rather go down with the Titanic so long as they have first-class seats. ]

There is a populist divide in both parties but it is most evident in the Democratic party.

Actual News and Journalism

quote [ Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper says that he knew of no FISA-approved wiretap activity against the Trump campaign. ]

Made news a few times in this interview...clarifying...impressive. Says he has faith in the Senate investigation...says the House is a joke.

(It is also not politics its news.)

“Nationalism with an indoor voice,”

quote [ Media Figures Tout Trump’s ‘Presidential’ Shift, But His Divisive Policies Remain The Same


We have seen this before...YAAA! Trump was able to read a prepared speech without making a stupid comment..yaaa.

Policy, what there is of it, didn't change. But I think this is the first good day he has had since being named president.
