Mudede's ejaculation of Corbyn triumphalism seems premature. See the beeb.

Corbyn faces apparent difficulty recruiting 51 MP's to meet the usual 20% threshold to place his name on the Labour Party leadership ballot.

At the same time, there is apparent conflict in Labour Party rules as to whether this condition necessarily applies to a challenged Party leader.

For the umpteenth-and-second time, elections are not about what you want. Elections are about what we get.

And every moral choice is between the lesser evil and the greater evil. Every fucking one.

Following a life-long behavioral motif, Bernie has once again seized irrelevancy from the jaws of opportunity. A peculiar choice as cult hero ... but these are peculiar times.

Jun 24 RonK, Seattle commented on Hey, Bill Bryant. Your Party Is Going Nuts Over #Brexit. You?.
@1 -- Inslee IS Governor of the USA's most trade-positive state. Brexit already threatens adverse impact on Boeing. And Bryant is an international trade professional, trade policy advisor, andPort of Seattle Commissioner. Per Ballotpedia:
As noted in his Port of Seattle Commissioner biography, Bryant's knowledge of U.S. trade policies has earned him appointments by "both Democratic and Republican administrations, Congress, and the United States Export Import Bank.
He can't very well evade this issue by mumbling the trade equivalent of "I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' babies".

Hit Post too soon. Prev MSNBC discussion was on polls 2 wks and 4 wks stale.

@14 - 9% for Johnson is consistent with other results (but not necessarily predictive, as it reflects protest vote intent).
