    Yikes. I made it to 1:48 before tapping out on that speech, but lasting that long took every ounce of willpower. I eventually just enjoyed watching his wife bob up and down on the sofa as a result of his exaggerated hand gestures.

    The hand gestures were the worst.

    It was fun watching his wife begin as super excited and then slowly transform into someone who didn't understand what he was saying.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    The best hand gesture is at 1:11 where his hand gestures emphasize his desire to lift? up the rural areas of the country.

    Yeah. Wasn't impresed with this intro. Give us a little background of yourself. I don't know Beto's story. I'm sure most people don't. All we know is that he lost to Ted Cruz.

    All he does is goes on and on from one talking point to the next. No unique vision. Same old, same old. Blah. Blah. Blah.

    I like him, but not so much his platform. But I’d vote for him over Trump, Cruz (already did), or most of the GOP front runners from 2016. I’d also prefer him over Warren, Harris or Sanders. I’d probably take Booker over Beto.

    What of all his many accomplishments do you admire the most? What in his background do you think makes him most qualified to be president?

    Sounds good to me. We've tried the hateful version of grandpa Simpson. Let's go with a hip, positive young person.

    Also, Trump threatens some of his supporters could turn dangerous if they get pissed off:


    You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay? I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump — I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad. But the left plays it cuter and tougher....

    That's fascist-type talk. I'm sorry, but don't about your angelic hardcore supporters being maligned as deplorables and then boast about/threaten their propensity for violence and aggression.

    Beto's wife is hilarious. She begins with that smile/grimace with gritted teeth, the good soldier, and her eyes dart furtively to her left toward someone off camera as if to say "Please, come save me."

    It was a cry for help. I think she is being held against her will.

    Hillary Clinton really is the worst major political candidate of our lifetime. I think, absent her, Obama wouldn't have been won the nomination in 2008. Trump wouldn't have won in 2016. Bernie Sanders wouldn't be a credible contender for the Democrat nomination in 2016 and 2020.

    Had Hillary Clinton not run in 2008, there is a good chance that John Edwards would have been the nominee (well most likely still Obama, but play along here). Had he been the nominee and assuming his scandal still breaks in July 2008, the election would have been quite the drama. A country that is sick of George W Bush and wants to punish the GOP whomever the nominee is vs. a disgraced husband who has been cheating on his dying wife and has a love child.

    Hillary was not worse than Trump. She was shitty, but no one tops that narcissistic geriatric hate machine. You should read Woodward’s book.

    You're talking about Trump the person and president, not Trump the candidate.

    Hillary was a worse candidate. That's why she lost.

    I am guessing she knew about Skateboard Jesus' hacking days... And was wondering how long before it all came out.


    BETO O’ROURKE APOLOGIZES FOR WRITING FICTIONAL FANTASIES ABOUT PLOWING OVER CHILDREN WITH A CAR

    His comments come after a report Friday revealed O’Rourke wrote prose when he was a teenager describing a scenario in which he would accelerate a car into a group of children while hearing them scream. The report also showed he was a secret member of a hacking group called the “Cult of the Dead Cow,” which focused on showing people how to hack Microsoft computers.

    Add Kirsten Gillibrand to the list... even after she said she would not.

    Gillibrand formally joins crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates

    New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand made official what already was well-known Sunday, formally joining the crowded Democratic field of candidates for president in 2020.


    "I’m running for president," she tweeted. "Let’s prove that brave wins."


    Gillibrand, 52, made the announcement on Twitter with a two-and-a-half- minute campaign video titled "The Brave." She discusses "The Star-Spangled Banner" and urges Americans in "the home of the brave" to support her and her policies.


    Gillibrand talks about universal health care, family leave, an end to gun violence, the Green New Deal and campaign finance changes.

    I hope she keeps calling herself a “young mom.”

    At age 52 that makes it seem like she is really totally a normal person and not weird st all.

    Weird. I thought that she was already in. All these Dem candidates are starting to run together.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    I'm about her age and have two kids ages 8 and 5. Sometimes I've heard people refer to me as a "young dad" even though I've never called myself that. But I don't look my age and I can kind of get it when people have said it. I feel like I do understand other parents who have similar aged kids. I know about things like two working parents and the costs of child care, etc. In her case, one of her two kids is 8. Does that literally make her a "young mom?" No, but if the issue is her relateability to other parents with young kids, I would think her economic situation compared to "normal" people is a bigger barrier to understanding everyday folks than is her age. This isn't a defense of her in the least. She's clearly just another vanity candidate who will probably disappear off the radar soon enough. I think her biggest and more important issue is going to be to explain the radical policy position shifts she's gone through over her political career.

    THE KEY TO WINNING IN 2020 WILL BE PROPERLY EXPLAINING SOCIALISM, SAYS BERNIE SANDERS

    Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders believes he and the Democratic Party can win the White House in 2020 by “explaining socialism” to Americans voters.

    You aren’t a young dad and she’s not a young mom. you aren’t in the same position as young parents. You have 15+ years of more work experience than young parents.
