    Now that's the question and I say yes! The others are too old! Here's to the youngest President ever!

    No. He’s a fucking clown. Do you really think people are going to watch an election get stolen right out in the open again and actually fall for it? It didn’t work the last time, why would it this time? Disenfranchised voters aren’t going to get duped into voting for an establishment moron. They just won’t vote (again).

    The DNC is giving you Donald Trump for another four years.

    The answer is maybe, who the hell knows?

    It could be that any D can beat Trump. It could be that no D can beat Trump. Or it could be somewhere in between.

    I'm getting the impression that no matter who wins the D nomination, you are going to say that candidate won because 'the establishment' rigged the election.

    If Vermin Supreme won, you'd probably denounce him as an establishment stooge.

    Yeah, Pete would be considerably younger.

    The youngest person to assume the presidency was Theodore Roosevelt, who succeeded to the office at the age of 42 years, 322 days after the assassination of William McKinley (the youngest to become president after having been elected was John F. Kennedy, who was 43 years, 236 days of age on Inauguration Day).

    Younger does not make him better. Inexperience is usually a downfall. Look at the clown club running the white house now.

    I doubt it, but of all the D candidates he seems the most sane.


    Not a very high bar, though.

    I’m getting the impression that the DNC could have a puppy holocaust and you’d find a way to defend it.

    It's interesting how much of Bernie's campaign effort involves smearing other candidates.

    Not sure that's going to work against Trump, throwing mud at a pig doesn't really have a noticeable effect.

    This statement is a smear on Bernie. What is your evidence?

    I watched the video and Pete's answer did get applause, but the moderator was speaking over the applause, so they edited the video by cutting it short and adding applause so they could use it in an ad. I don't feel bamboozled by this at all.

    If he rides into Milwaukee on a Harley Davidson, it changes everything.
    I think the only 4 that can beat Trump are Amy, Pete, Joe or Mike.
