Democratic Primary Open Thread. Update!

So today there are two primaries for Democrats to use to pretend that the nomination is still in contention.

One is in Kentucky and their polls close in about an hour and half from when this gets posted.

The second is in Oregon and that sucker is still five hours and a half away.

There is by the way every possibility that Sanders will win both of these tonight, but of course it is unlikely that it will be a large enough win to gain him more than about half the delegates. And that is simply not going to help.

By the way there is the letter that Bernie Sanders wrote in response to what happened in Nevada this weekend.

Here it is in its entirety:

“It is imperative that the Democratic leadership, both nationally and in the states, understand that the political world is changing and that millions of Americans are outraged at establishment politics and establishment economics. The people of this country want a government which represents all of us, not just the 1 percent, super PACs and wealthy campaign contributors. 

“The Democratic Party has a choice. It can open its doors and welcome into the party people who are prepared to fight for real economic and social change – people who are willing to take on Wall Street, corporate greed and a fossil fuel industry which is destroying this planet. Or the party can choose to maintain its status quo structure, remain dependent on big-money campaign contributions and be a party with limited participation and limited energy. 

“Within the last few days there have been a number of criticisms made against my campaign organization. Party leaders in Nevada, for example, claim that the Sanders campaign has a ‘penchant for violence.’ That is nonsense. Our campaign has held giant rallies all across this country, including in high-crime areas, and there have been zero reports of violence. Our campaign of course believes in non-violent change and it goes without saying that I condemn any and all forms of violence, including the personal harassment of individuals. But, when we speak of violence, I should add here that months ago, during the Nevada campaign, shots were fired into my campaign office in Nevada and apartment housing complex my campaign staff lived in was broken into and ransacked. 

“If the Democratic Party is to be successful in November, it is imperative that all state parties treat our campaign supporters with fairness and the respect that they have earned. I am happy to say that has been the case at state conventions in Maine, Alaska, Colorado and Hawaii where good discussions were held and democratic decisions were reached. Unfortunately, that was not the case at the Nevada convention. At that convention the Democratic leadership used its power to prevent a fair and transparent process from taking place. Among other things: 

The chair of the convention announced that the convention rules passed on voice vote, when the vote was a clear no-vote. At the very least, the Chair should have allowed for a headcount. 

The chair allowed its Credentials Committee to en mass rule that 64 delegates were ineligible without offering an opportunity for 58 of them to be heard. That decision enabled the Clinton campaign to end up with a 30-vote majority. 

The chair refused to acknowledge any motions made from the floor or allow votes on them. The chair refused to accept any petitions for amendments to the rules that were properly submitted. 

“These are on top of failures at the precinct and county conventions including trying to depose and then threaten with arrest the Clark County convention credentials chair because she was operating too fairly.”

So as you can see there was not an explicit call for non-violence though there was plenty of blame for any aggression aimed at the Democrats.

Actually it kind of reads like a list of demands by a hostage taker.

Update: Here are some of the threats sent to Nevada Democratic party chair Roberta Lange after the convention.

Nothing that was done, or could have been done, at the convention excuses this.

Update: Hillary Clinton wins!

Holy crap that took forever. Let's hope that Oregon is not quite such a nail biter.

Update 2: And now Sanders wins Oregon. 

It looks like in this case the delegates are pretty evenly split as well.

    HRC supporters are causing this violence to make Bernie look bad. It's a typical ploy by the dirty politics Clinton plays by.

    "The chair of the convention announced that the convention rules passed on voice vote, when the vote was a clear no-vote. At the very least, the Chair should have allowed for a headcount."

    Clearly a reasonable statement. How Democratic is a voice vote when the chair is clearly a Clinton partisan?

    Then you claim these reasonable statements are akin to hostage demands. FUCK YOU and your buddies who are causing this violence.

      @1:39 "FUCK YOU and your buddies who are causing this violence."

      I've been trying to figure out why I feel so reactive and triggered when reading some of the partisan posts here and on Facebook. Today, I finally realized that it is the vehemence and implied (and sometimes outright stated) threats of violence. As a survivor of domestic violence, perhaps I should have seen it sooner, but it only became clear in the past couple of days. Your quote speaks volumes. So akin to "I wouldn't have hit you if you hadn't made me. It's all your fault."
      I started out as a strong Bernie supporter but became more and more uncomfortable with his sense of entitlement and the refusal to speak against the violence of his campaign.
      I survived one violent relationship. I'll not enter willingly into another.

      I found that the solution to a violent relationship was to hit back and hit them with something big, and heavy.

      My boyfriend hit me in 1986. I dropped a bookcase on his head, knocked him out and then hit him with a baseball bat to make sure he was really out.

      I then left the country for a few weeks not knowing if he was alive or dead.

      He did survive, but he at least never pressed charges because he knew he deserved it.

      However I did hear that he died of a brain aneurism 3 months ago and I had to wonder if those blows to his head made a problem that only presented 40 years later...no guilt though as he had a few more physically abusive relationships after ours so I wish I actually would have did him in when I had the chance :-)

    Sanders creating more headaches for Clinton

    Hillary Clinton and her allies have launched the early stages of an all-out assault on Donald Trump, but the Democratic front-runner can’t seem to shake a dogged Bernie Sanders, who could rack up at least one more win on Tuesday night.

    The Vermont senator has a good shot at claiming victory in Oregon, whose overwhelmingly white and liberal demographics bode well for Sanders. And it’s not beyond reason to think that he could pull off an upset in Kentucky, which would be an especially bruising loss for Clinton.

    Even a mixed result would be another headache for Clinton, especially with Sanders showing no signs of backing down or laying off the attacks that Trump has already said will be a playbook for his own battle against Clinton.

    On Tuesday, the senator again questioned the former secretary of state’s “judgment,” this time for floating her husband's name as a top economic adviser.

    The Thing in Trump’s Taxes That Will End Him

    The newest media parlor game is wondering what Donald Trump could possibly be hiding in his taxes. Could it be low charitable donations? Could it be financial support for causes conservatives hate? Could it be an evasion of taxes?

    It’s highly unlikely that Trump would try too hard to hide any of those things. Thus far, if there’s one thing we know about Donald Trump, it is that on a lot of charges, he’s really good at accepting the hit to defang it. In the first debate, he laughed off charges that he called women “pigs,” and has readily admitted to infidelity.

    Perhaps anticipating stories about him not paying his fair share of taxes, he’s already told George Stephanopoulos, “I try very hard to pay as little tax as possible and have said that for the last two years. I fight very hard because this country wastes our money. They take our tax money and throw it down the drain.... So I fight very hard to pay as little tax as possible.”

    But there’s one area that Donald Trump will fight you tooth and nail - his worth.

    It is a subject that he won’t let go of. He leaves no opportunity behind to tell people how “really rich“ he is.

    There’s a reason for that, besides his ego.

    The image of Trump as the independent guy who isn’t beholden to the establishment system is built on a foundation of him being so rich that he doesn’t owe them anything, and can’t be pulled by their strings.

    If, somehow, it was proven that he’s really not rich, the foundation cracks. If it was proven that he’s actually deeply in hock to the moneyed elites, the Trump Tower comes crashing down.

      If you can do basic math, check what percentages Sanders would have needed in each state to keep up with Clinton...and see how much he's missed by in state after state after state. At this point he needs to win by 50 points in states in which he's running double digits behind. Not happening.

    I don't know a lot about the rules, but it seems to me the best time to make changes to the structure of the 2 party system and the structure of how Democrats and Republicans select their delegates and candidates is BEFORE the time when a presidential candidate is being selected.

    Where was all the concern last year or the year before? Especially if, as some have said, most of those outraged were older people who have had the right to vote and get involved for years.

    Where will they be, and this time I include the college aged people, in the next few years when it will be easier to make changes in prep for the next presidential election?

    People are angry with a lot of stuff right now and it's easy to get them riled up. Especially if you claim you are going to start a revolution. Or will change things.

    Remember how angry Democrats, especially new and young voters, got shortly after Pres. Obama was elected to first term?

    Why didn't he do what he said? He lied? It's been six months and he hasn't totally changed the world? (I threw that one in.)

    No, and he can't and 8 years later he still can't get all his plans come to being.

    No president can. That's not the way the system works.

    And if you are upset because you don't know how the system works, too bad. The system is not going to magically change just because you didn't understand how it works.

    Was I this clueless when I was young? Maybe, but I didn't expect people to change to accommodate me. And I took the time to learn how it works so I could work within the system.

    Bernie won 82% of the caucus vote in Alaska yet only one of our 4 super delegates to the national convention is for him and the regular delegation is heavily for Clinton regardless of Sanders winning our state.

    This sort of thing reminds me why I am an independent and don't vote in the dem caucus (because I can't and even if I changed my registration to dem, seemingly it wouldn't matter since the delegation seems to do whatever it wants regardless of caucus results)

    There is a cabal of democrats that are for hillary here in AK regardless of what the majority desires. Someone in the process the other day reminded me that the state convention is not a majority rules representative democratic process, as is the caucus, but "an election within a caucus of a who's who" and they can do as they damn well please.

    Turned me off totally to the process within our state and made me realize that remaining an outsider is the only way to get your point across.

    Bernie doesn't seem to get it. DEMOCRATS should have the say in how the Democratic process works same as Republicans decide for themselves and Independents decide for themselves.

    Non-Democrats shouldn't decide for the D's, etc.

    If he wants to throw out the whole shebang and start over so that there is NO party affiliation...then that's the only way I can see that everyone can throw in their 2 cents worth.

    We are going back toward that and it's wonderful to see! Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska, elected a Democratic Mayor Ethan Berkowitz this last election cycle - like I said - the change back to blue is occurring!

    I'm also going to vote for Hillary Clinton for POTUS and think Bernie Sanders screwed himself royally! I actually liked him in the beginning! But, not anymore.

    1. Anonymous5:12 PM

      I for one love Berkowitz even if he is a bit more left than I am. One of the major reasons I support him is he is closing down that mess of a bus station downtown to cut down on the homeless bums that call it their home and threaten normal people who try to do business there or must park in the adjacent garage for work. It's about time someone shut that down, renovate it and secure it against the worst elements of downtown Anchorage.

      I also support his raiding of the disgusting homeless camps in town and shutting down these terrible places along our trail system; people who started the wildfire in midtown the other day and trash our most beautiful green areas.

      Eradicating this scourge from Anchorage will require a lot of support from fellow progressives, but I think during his term we will see an end to the homeless drunk street people scourge that infects downtown Anchorage like an incurable rash.

      The inside the convention violence in 1968 was about the party picking Humphrey even though he really didn't run in the primaries in 1968.
      After Kennedy was shot only McCarthy had delegates, but not enough.
      It was 1968 convention that Democrats changed the laws and created the "Super Delegates" then elected Humphrey as their nominee.
      So should the party pick the nominee, or should the people's vote pick the nominee?
      Should the party get rid of the super delegates? A simple voice vote in the rules committee at the convention could eliminate the super delegates.
      I think Bernie has a good point that if he won a State, the super delegates from that State should go to him.
      I favor getting rid of super delegates.

    6. Anonymous6:27 PM

      Super delegates aren't proportionally assigned to states. They'd need to be proportionally distributed. Otherwise, it wouldn't be fair.

      Regardless, at this point, even if Bernie gets all the Superdelegates from states he won (and Clinton gets all the of them from states she won), Bernie won't be the nominee.

      The people's vote is going to pick the nominee and that will be Clinton.

    Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Tuesday that Bernie Sanders' response to the chaos his supporters caused in Nevada was "anything but acceptable," likening it to the violence occasionally seen at Donald Trump events.

    Wasserman Schultz told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that she thought Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid's request that Sanders issue a statement about the chaos "was enough. Unfortunately, the senator's response was anything but acceptable. It certainly did not condemn his supporters for acting violently or engaging in intimidation tactics and instead added more fuel to the fire."

    Sanders issued a defiant statement Tuesday, knocking Democratic Party leaders in Nevada and threatening national party leaders with potential damage in the general election.

    Why did that dipshit recently join the Democratic Party, run for president and is now crying about the rules of the Democratic Party? 25 years as a politician and he doesn't know the election rules of the Democratic Party or the Republican Party? Go back to Vermont.

    Threatening national party leaders with potential damage in the general election is not cool Bernie. You're starting to sound like Trump.
