    Of course, to run as an independent doesn't he need something like 20% in the national polls?
    No, that's just to be included in the debates. But getting on the ballot for an independent can be a lot of work as it depends on the individual requirements within each state.

    She has always seemed pretty nice and level-headed but wonder if this is real or fake news:

    Amy Klobuchar has laid the grounds for a presidential run on an image of “Minnesota nice.”

    But behind the doors of her Washington, DC, office, the Minnesota Democrat ran a workplace controlled by fear, anger, and shame, according to interviews with eight former staffers, one that many employees found intolerably cruel. She demeaned and berated her staff almost daily, subjecting them to bouts of explosive rage and regular humiliation within the office, according to interviews and dozens of emails reviewed by BuzzFeed News.

    My only concern right now is that her team didn't arrange for a covered podium during a snowstorm. WTH? Gotta tighten that up.

    Erick Erickson looking for work on Fox News.

    He does raise some good points that trouble me about Democrats. They have an opportunity right now to capture center-right voters but they've instead chosen to go hard left.

    We have three years on which to judge President Trump’s administration and vision for the country. We also have lots of real world examples of where the Democrats want to head.

    We have a party that is increasingly hostile to religion and now applies religious tests to blocking judicial nominees. We have a party that believes children can be murdered at birth. We have a party that would set back the economic progress of this nation by generations through their environmental policies. We have a party that uses the issue of Russia opportunistically. We have a party that has weaponized race, gender, and other issues to divide us all while calling the President “divisive.” We have a party that is deeply, deeply hostile to large families, small businesses, strong work ethics, gun ownership, and traditional values. We have a party that is more and more openly anti-Semitic.

    The Democrats have increasingly determined to let that hostility shape their public policy. They are adamant, with a religious fervor, that one must abandon one’s deeply held convictions and values as a form of penance to their secular gods.

    Yeah, Dems are just plain stupid. This thing is just sitting there for them to take. Instead they get all giggly about Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and that Ocasio-Ford woman (I know, she's not running, but those candidates are falling all overthemselves to stand right by her side). Such insanity. If they are smart they will nominate Klobuchar and she will walk into the presidency.

    Yep Elizabeth Warren in particular is like a double down on all of Hillary’s flaws as a candidate.

    And Kamala Harris is being told by the left that she needs to apologize for her career as a prosecutor. It’s like any type of normal career means you are part of the evil establishment.

    Klobuchar needs to change her look. I don’t think “PTO President” is going to work on the national stage.

    Paid time off? PTA?

    I'll take her, hot headed abusiveness and all. I'll take anyone over Trump, though I have some reservations with some of the democrats. I've become a two-issue voter. One is to send Trump back to Mar a Lago so the Republican Party can complete it's self destruction. Maybe in another generation I can vote for them again. My second issue is the righteous one: prosecution reform. Some of the libertarian-lite people I follow have serious reservations with Harris while she was AG of California. She may now be running on reform policies, but apparently she was quite the hard-ass while a prosecutor, like allowing her office to argue that the state shouldn't release non-violent inmates because they were cheap labor:

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/kamala...or-cheap-labor

    They're saying similar things about Klobuchar though. I think I'll still have to hold my nose with whoever I vote, but at least I can do it with my integrity intact.

    lol valid point. I do get annoyed when his underlings refer to him as the "most hardworking president" or some other such obvious horse shit.

    Maybe not! Trump took time out of his incredibly busy schedule this morning to tweet the following:
