Emerging Rift in the DNC?

Hey everyone - since this thread is getting way off-track, I created a better home for the conversation about what makes this country great.

[Edit to add] I still think that the redistricting of 2010 means we won't see a serious populist / progressive primary challenge on the national stage for at least the next two presidential cycles, though I'd love to have someone like Elizabeth Warren representing me.

+1 on Warren running.

It would be nice if the democrats found common ground and ran with it so we could actually make some progress.

Lost me when he started calling millennials the worst f*cking generation of all time. It's not them that shat the bed, they're the poor f*ckers who have to lie in it.

Yup. It might me satisfying to blame one generation over another, but it's stupid and wrong. Plus, baby boomers are by far the worst f*cking generation of all time

He lost me when he said America used to stand for something. What utter bullcrap. The US tolerated the nazi's trampling Europe until the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, led countless coups against democratic regimes in the name of fighting communism, and supported even more sadistic dictators as long as they got behind team Capitalism.

It's how international politics have always been conducted I guess, but only the US would ramp up the volume to 11 while still claiming the high ground.

The 'Murica/capitalism circlejerk is over here.
