"On virtually every major issue facing this country and the needs of working families, Clinton’s positions are far superior to Trump’s. Our campaigns worked together to produce the most progressive platform in the history of American politics. Trump’s campaign wrote one of the most reactionary documents."

The Nader problem transcends how many of his voters would have voted for Gore or Bush or stayed home. The question is more complex.

Ralph Nader shared much, much more in common with Al Gore than he did with George Bush. The Green Party and those who voted for it lost much more with George Bush than they would have with Al Gore. That energy cost them the ability to increase their movement, because it forced them to work to regain ground gained under Bill Clinton and subsequently lost to George Bush.

The point being, not only was it idiotic for Ralph Nader to siphon votes from the left, it was extremely idiotic for him to not campaigns specifically FOR Al Gore. There's no doubt that had Ralph Nader campaigned for the Progressive Candidate, that Al Gore would have been President.

The Kshama Sawant Problem

http://moreperfect.org/site/?p=1770

"If Kshama Sawant cannot recognize that we have more to gain by working together to defeat Donald Trump and to move our shared values forward, then it is time for Democrats to work to remove the platform that we helped build for her. If she can’t acknowledge the coalition that has helped her in her cause, if she can’t return the favor, then it’s time to end the coalition."

@11..."intent" is an aspect of the law that the FBI had to consider. Not so in the cases you list. But, you know, facts.
May 19 Timothy commented on Bernie Sanders Supporter Robert Reich: "Work Like Hell" for Hillary Clinton if She Gets the Nomination.
I for one will not be part of the group begging the Sander's Tantrum Team to support HRC. There may be others who feel called to do that, but not me.

I'm focused on defeating Trump. And HRC is more than deserving of our vote and our respect. To conclude otherwise is to simply ignore reality.

So, take your toys and go home as you wish. Meanwhile, I and others will still be here doing the actual work of moving the country forward.

Maybe it's time I stop ignoring those bored people by the transit tunnel. Perhaps it's time to start sharing a message with them.

@55...Maybe I'm not making my point well.

But hey, if in your experience dating women, you've found a wider range of early dates that are willing to talk about masturbation, that give me hope! ;-)
May 3 Timothy commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Soft Serve.
@52...I've dated a range of different women. From lifetime members of The Wet Spot to newly divorced who married young with little other experience. My point being...in the range of women, there are many who even after we've slept together just don't want to talk in certain ways about certain things. Men make the mistake of thinking "this is what I'd want, so all men must want the same thing!" Same holds for women; women tend to think that all other women are like they are. But I'm telling you that women are all across the board on how open they are talking about certain things, with most (in my experience) needing more time (even after having slept together) to get comfortable with certain conversations.

@49 Lava...I was going to push back a bit on your post @47. But loved your post @48.

Dan frequently gets the tone wrong on how to men should communicate with women. All women? Of course not. But in my time dating women, the vast majority will not respond well to direct sexual discussion in the early stages of dating. To be clear, I've dated many who would be OK with that, but they are far outnumbered by those who would rather I be much more subtle.

So...your suggestion of flowers is perfect. It can communicate so much without saying much directly. ... cheers!
Apr 19 Timothy commented on This Past Weekend's Democratic Caucuses Were an Unbearable Ordeal.
@4...most precincts don't even have a PCO. Now you're going to have each individual precinct find a PCO, elect a delegate...and have the whole thing Notarized to boot?

Yeah...good luck with that. :-)

Here's what you can do: pick any of the following two, but not all three:

Fast, Cheap, Good.
