Looks like we can beat the Republicans just by outliving them.
Couldn’t blow her way into this job. *
Is there...some implication that she exchanged sexual favors for vocational or political advancement
Yes, and it is really not much in dispute. The other women in the field have
She seems to dispute it*
She had an affair with Willie Brown in the mid 1990s. He subsequently gave her a start
YMMV He was a power broker in California so it's reasonable to think he did give a bunch of people a start.

Seems her career benefited from the relationship
Never mind the 20+ women trump's assaulted or raped over the years,
No one gives a shit about Kamala and Willie Brown's consensual relationship
I'll put you down for "assault ok" while we're at it. *
I already noted your nonsense response.*
I thought you'd like that. *
if only she had a rich dad, that could give her a political job the old fashioned way*
I'm sure you would object to when people make jokes attacking that too.*
boys will be boys. Trump supporters idolize that he can do rich and powerful things...
I mean I HATE the whataboutism that is constant these days. But why do we applaud trump for
If we’re going to condemn powerful men for sleeping with young women because ...
First of all, we should never condemn victims of the system for using the system to
I can only support a candidate who earned every position they got solely by hard work and merit
Someone blew you thirty years ago to get ahead?*
That much of her political success is attributed to her affair with Willie Brown*
At least her start. It is pretty well known. Took place a long time ago *
There are times when I think: "How could anyone support a giant asshole like Trump?"
Yeah, she's no Mitch McConnell.
I think Mitch is more of a backdoor guy*
Looking at him, he'll take it or give it any way he can.
I think Bloomberg scared her off.
I think she has her eye on VP. Now just white people up on stage (except Warrin', of course).*
Cory Booker and sort of Deval Patrick.*
Neither have qualified for the debate yet*
I don’t think Bloomberg had anything to do with this
She must have been worried he'd split the broken windows authoritarian vote. *
is Bloomberg trending in any polls? who'd he be taking supporters from?*
I've seen him at 3 to 6% in recent polls. I also see he spent 23.7 million last week
yeah, his spend got him into the top 5 in some polls
GOP's canceling primaries or only submitting Trump's name on ballots*
Former Johnsburger Joe Walsh! Nobody should spend money on that clown. *
punch yourself in the face for saying "his spend" :) *
Kind of interesting the people who have attacked Joe the most viscerally
Just donated to Cory Booker's campaign. Hopefully he can pick up what little support she had*
Her campaign was a train wreck*
I read this as Kamara out and about freaked out*
he's out too
i guess maya rudolph’s saturdays are free now*
I think she may be strong candidate 4 or 8 years out
I don't think experience was her problem. She has as much as Warren and more than the Mayor.
Pop quiz, what are two or three policies she believes in very strongly?
What do you want her to believe in strongly?*
No, I'm saying candidates who don't have a cause and just want to win tend not to do well*
OTOH Biden's still in the lead*
Biden has what 40 years of supporting labor and other traditional Dem constituencies?
Malarkey is Kamala spelled backwards
Fair point but i think former VPs get to coast on previous administration brand coattails *
Healthcare. For everybody. Maybe with Medicare, maybe with something else!*
mostly due to dreadful/dysfunctional campaign infrastructure, i think*
Perhaps if she gets a personality transplant.*
really thought she would get more traction... seemed like a strong candidate on paper*
yes, but then her lack of real, sufficient skills became apparent*
You are doing a schtick!*
I spoke the truth. Do some homework.*
what other candidates make you feel this way? just curious who does and does not have real skills*
She lost traction due to factionalism in her campaign, and uneven policy statements
So she lacked skill as a candidate.*
That's not a lack of "real, sufficient skills"
I disagree. Being able to run a campaign is a real skill.
yes, but it doesn't mean said person doesn't have any other skills*
Or, more likely, that she is just nauseating*
What don't you like about her? She wasn't my first choice but I'm surprised at the strong negative r
she is a cop*
Bernie bro spotted*
That's why we let progressive Twitter pick the candidates, ECE*
Somewhere Kim Chee throws down his pith helmet.*
Not surprising if the article re: the turmoil in her campaign was true. *
I think she was all out of money, too, and wasn't bringing very much in.
The writing was on the wall a month ago
interesting, since she was one of the Dec. debate qualifiers...
theory i saw was to prevent her name from appearing on the ballots in California*
