Unlike Clinton, Gillibrand has good and honest answers to her clinton connections and past stances and these charges don't stick to her like they did to Hillary, who would collect them like girl scout badges and show them off.

In 2028 or 32 Presidential news, my buddy Zach Wahls is running for Iowa State Senate. He went viral in his speech in 2011 about having two moms, he spoke before Obama at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, and he runs Scouts for Equality - the organization that changed the Boy Scouts' policy on LGBT members.

Get pumped.

So it was a no s*** Sherlock question, but I do wonder if she’s going to be thrown into the Clinton category and get beat at the polls like Hillary did in 2016. Of course, we have to see if she’s the nominee out of the clown car of people the Democrats will have in 2020. I doubt Biden or Sanders will run so I bet it is Harris or Gillibrand.

I wouldn't count out Sanders. If he can't find someone to carry his torch, I believe he will run again.

Today's edition of the best people, former Republican Rep. from Michigan Pete Hoekstra, now our ambassador to the Netherlands, getting called out by a dutch reporter for being a standard hateful liar.

Just perfect.
Dutch journalist to new US Ambassador: you said there were 'no go zones' in Netherlands, where are they?
Ambassador: That's fake news, I didn't say that
Journalist: We can show you that clip now.
Ambassador: Err

He called it fake news, was shown the clip of him saying that, then said he never called it fake news. Truly we're not sending our best.

Hoekstra was the guy who ran this really awful ad in his last campaign.

Shocking that he'd keep saying racist things.

2017, the year of political tribalism

Interesting article about the polarization and zero sum game nature of politics under Obama and Trump.
