Monday Reads: Here we go again

12809656_10153257291792352_1600803200710685432_nGood Morning!

I had quite the weekend.  It was so hectic I managed to miss a wedding because I got the dates totally confused.   I’m trying to undo some of my karma this morning and that’s definitely going on the list. I’m so scatter brained these days I don’t even feel like me at times.  I had friends in from NYC and lots of Hillary work to do. It’s just been super crazy here.

Most everyone knows that the New Orleans Hillary peeps–including me–have been making phone calls to GOTV. We’ve had all kinds of stuff going on on the ground related to actually getting people to the polls. I’ve not gotten any calls from the other side but several folks showed up for a march around the French Quarter for Bernie.  As you probably know, our city is like 60% black.  There might have been 100 or so people in the march.  I only saw white faces there.  This continues to be sadly telling.

However, I can tell you about the time I’ve spent with the Hillary campaign this last few weeks. I’m so proud of the diversity of her supporter base.  I was on the phone yesterday and there were two of us aging boomers in the room. Both of us were women.  One white. One black. The diversity of the young supporters was amazing and there was a good size group. There were two Asian Americans, a Hispanic, three young black women, a young white woman and a black man. I know that many were from the GLBT community too. They were all millennials, so don’t believe it when they say there are no young people supporting Hillary.  She has a rainbow of them right down here in New Orleans.  I also spent the evening talking to Dr. Son in law who is a strong Hillary supporter along with Dr. Daughter.  As you know, Dr. Daughter had a Japanese Grandmother and Dr. Son-in-law’s family hails from the Bengal region of India. Both are avid Hillary supporters.

BB mentioned the stages of grief.  I’m pretty sure folks I know in the Sanders camp are somewhat stuck between denial and anger.  The South Carolina primary should’ve been a wake up call for the narrowing path to victory for their candidate.   The Team fighting here for Hillary on the ground definitely matches these kinds of numbers.Miguel

A bruising, nearly 48-point loss to Hillary Clinton in South Carolina on Saturday night dramatically narrowed the path forward for Bernie Sanders, raising serious doubts about his ability to win the delegates needed to secure the Democratic nomination.

South Carolina will widen Clinton’s delegate lead, which stood at one after her Nevada win on Feb. 20. But more significantly, the contest here demonstrated that the Vermont senator has failed to make any headway at all with African-American voters in the South. Even with 200 paid Sanders staffers on the ground and nearly $2 million in television spending, Clinton swept the black vote by a 5-to-1 ratio, according to exit polls. Among black voters 65 and older, Clinton won by a stunning 96 percent to 3 percent.

“When we stand together, there is no barrier too big to break,” Clinton said at her victory rally in Columbia, where, for the first time on a 2016 election night, she took the stage without Bill or Chelsea Clinton by her side. “Tomorrow, we take this campaign national.”

Now, heading into Super Tuesday, when 11 states will cast ballots on March 1, Sanders will face possibly insurmountable contests in Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas and Virginia, all states with sizable black populations in which he has not invested as much time or money.

“Delegates determine the presidential nomination, and I don’t see a path for Sanders to get there,” said Jeff Berman, a consultant to the Clinton campaign who ran Barack Obama’s 2008 delegate strategy.

Running through a best-case scenario for Sanders, Clinton operatives said they expect Sanders could win Colorado, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Oklahoma and Vermont — states tailor-made for the democratic socialist because they hold caucuses, are predominantly white, located in New England or have a history of electing progressives.

But even if Sanders manages to pull out significant wins in all five, the delegate math will make it difficult for Sanders to catch up: They represent only one-third of the delegates up for grabs on Tuesday. And the Clinton campaign has invested heavily in states like Colorado and Minnesota in order to limit Sanders’ margins.

Sanders’ operatives said they are looking beyond Super Tuesday, to the friendlier terrain of Kansas, Nebraska and Maine to deliver them wins. But by then, Clinton operatives predicted, it could be too little, too late to close the delegate gap.


krewe hillary swagBB has been insistent that Mass. will go for Hillary.  It seems that recent polls back her up.

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton holds an eight-point lead over Bernie Sanders in a new poll of Massachusetts Democratic primary voters, suggesting that the Vermont senator needs to attract significant support during the final push to eke out a much-needed win in Tuesday’s Massachusetts presidential primary.

Clinton draws 50 percent of the vote, while Sanders picks up 42 percent and eight percent remain undecided, according to the Suffolk University poll released Sunday. The poll was conducted Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

I expect record turnout to continue with the nation’s Black voters because they know what’s at stake.  The dismantling of the Voting Rights Act is a not something trivial.  This will not go away.  Here in Louisiana and in New Orleans, turning out the Black vote is important.   The community is coming together for Hillary as she stands as the symbol and the promise of continuing President Obama’s legacy.  This is something not lost on any of us that were active in 2007 and 2008 from either the Clinton or Obama Camps.

As voters in South Carolina’s Democratic primary cast ballots that would ultimately lead to a landslide victory for Hillary Clinton against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Clinton deployed surrogates in an attempt to expand that winning strategy to Louisiana.

Former Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx stumped for Clinton in Louisiana, hoping to increase turnout among black voters.

That bloc proved key to Clinton’s win in South Carolina. There she picked up 86 percent of the African-American vote, according to ABC News exit polling data.

Nutter was in Baton Rouge Friday (Feb. 26) to host a round table discussion with business leaders before campaigning with Landrieu at Dillard University.

Foxx, who joined the Obama administration in 2013, spent Sunday touring African-American churches in New Orleans.

There’s still one HUGE deal.  The Donald and his goosestepping followers really trouble me. There are two things that have popped up that are just beyond the pale.  Let’s start with this one: 12795310_10207586747399152_76255253964693655_n

Don Trump Jr. said he would happily pay for some of his father’s black critics to leave the United States.

The Republican presidential candidate’s son appeared Monday morning with his brother, Eric Trump, on “Fox and Friends” to discuss the “Super Tuesday” primary elections and the concerted attacks on their father by his GOP rivals.

And then there’s this one. His earpiece made him all confused about not knowing about David Duke and his association with the KKK.  This guy blames every one and every thing for his own damned ignorance, I swear!

Donald Trump on Monday blamed a poor earpiece for sparking a misunderstanding over white nationalist David Duke’s support of the GOP presidential front-runner.

“I’m sitting in a house in Florida with a very bad earpiece they gave me,” he told hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie on NBC’s “Today” show.

“I sit down and I have a lousy earpiece provided by them,” Trump continued. “You could hardly hear what [CNN anchor Jake Tapper] was saying.

“What I heard was ‘various groups.’ I have no problem disavowing groups, but I’d at least like to know who they are. It’d be very unfair disavowing a group if they shouldn’t be disavowed.”

Trump waved off questions about Duke during a Sunday morning appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union.” He repeatedly told Tapper he is unaware of the former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard’s background and stances.

The outspoken billionaire on Monday lashed out at CNN for ignoring his multiple rejections of Duke’s support over the weekend.

“I’ve disavowed David Duke all weekend long on Facebook and Twitter, but it’s obviously never enough,” Trump said. “I disavowed David Duke the day before in a major news conference.

12798958_10101603023909336_5483709449666623779_nEven the ever Trump-fellating Joe Scarborough thought this gaffe was a bit off. 

They weren’t hard questions to answer.

“Do you condemn David Duke? And the Ku Klux Klan?”

A simple “yes” would have worked. But on Sunday, Donald Trump swatted away the easy answers and instead feigned ignorance about the KKK and its most infamous Grand Wizard. The Republican frontrunner’s failure to provide what should have been a simple answer has raised even more disturbing questions about the man who is on course to lock down the GOP’s nomination for president.

The first question is why would Trump pretend to be so ignorant of American history that he refused to pass judgment on the Ku Klux Klan before receiving additional information? What kind of facts could possibly mitigate a century of sins committed by a violent hate group whose racist crimes terrorized Americans and placed a shameful blot on this nation’s history?

Why would the same man who claims to have “the world’s greatest memory”say “I don’t know anything about David Duke” just two days after he condemned the former Klansman in a nationally televised press conference? And with that amazing memory, how could Donald Trump have forgotten that he himself refused to run for president as a Reform Party nominee in 2000 because “Klansman” David Duke was a member of that same party?

These are questions that have no good answers for a Republican Party on the verge of nominating a man who sounds more like a Dixiecrat from the 1950s than the kind of nominee the GOP needs four years after losing Hispanics by 44 percent, Asian-Americans by 47 percent, and black Americans by 87 percent.

anthony foxx and hillaryAs I said, ask any black voter in the South and you’ll hear exactly what’s at stake. Women, minorities, and the GLBT community do not want to go back to the kind of American that Trump’s voters represent because we all know what that means. Will the Republican Party really implode?  How far can Trump go in the General and what will he say and do once he faces former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?  This is Philip Rucker and Robert Costa writing at WAPO.

The implosion over Donald Trump’s candidacy that Republicans had hoped to avoid arrived so virulently this weekend that many party leaders vowed never to back the billionaire and openly questioned whether the GOP could come together this election year.

At a moment when Republicans had hoped to begin taking on Hillary Clinton — who is seemingly on her way to wrapping up the Democratic nomination — the GOP has instead become consumed by a crisis over its identity and core values that is almost certain to last through the July party convention, if not the rest of the year.

A campaign full of racial overtones and petty, R-rated put-downs grew even uglier Sunday after Trump declined repeatedly in a CNN interview to repudiate the endorsement of him by David Duke, a former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Trump had disavowed Duke at a news conference on Friday, but he stammered when asked about Duke on Sunday.

Marco Rubio, who has been savaging Trump as a “con man” for three days, responded by saying that Trump’s defiance made him “unelectable.” The senator from Florida said at a rally in Northern Virginia, “We cannot be the party that nominates someone who refuses to condemn white supremacists.”

The fracas comes as the presidential race enters a potentially determinative month of balloting, beginning with primaries and caucuses in 11 states on Tuesday. As the campaign-trail rhetoric grew noxious over the weekend, a sense of fatalism fell over the Republican firmament, from elected officials and figureheads to major donors and strategists.

“This is an existential choice,” said former senator Norm Coleman of Minnesota, who is backing Rubio. Asked how the party could unite, Coleman said: “It gets harder every day when you hear things like not disavowing the KKK and David Duke. It’s not getting easier; it’s getting more difficult. . . . I’m hopeful the party won’t destroy itself.”

The choice for voters is not simply one of preference but rather a fundamental one about the direction they want to take the country, with the insurgent Trump promising utter transformation.

“For many Republicans, Trump is more than just a political choice,” said Kevin Madden, a veteran operative who advised 2012 nominee Mitt Romney. “It’s a litmus test for character.”

Madden, like some of his peers, said he could never vote for Trump. If he is the nominee, Madden said, “I’m prepared to write somebody in so that I have a clear conscience.”

More splintering came late Sunday when freshman Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), who has been a vocal Trump critic, declared on Twitter that if the reality TV star is nominated, he will “look for some 3rd candidate — a conservative option, a Constitutionalist.”

12799370_10207103252433397_7610076389051235349_nWith all Trumps’ issues, I agree with Amanda Marcotte on this one.  He’s not less crazy than the Cruz and Rubio boys.  I recommend reading her latest just for the linky goodness.  She’s documented some pretty unpalatable stuff.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying I like Trump — I hate him with the passion of a thousand burning suns — or that I want him to be president. But yes, I think he should win the Republican nomination. He’s run the best campaign, one that speaks to what Republican voters want to hear, and, by that measure, he deserves to win the nomination, so that Hillary Clinton can wipe the floor with him in November.

This is not a popular opinion, and not just with the establishment Republicans who can’t help acting like the main problem with Trump is he puts his dirty shoes on the couch. The common wisdom in most of the media — conservative, mainstream and liberal — is that a Trump nomination would be a ruinous thing, a blow to both the Republican Party and the political system as we know it. To which I can’t help but say, “So what?”
 I don’t agree with Trump supporters on, well, almost anything, but I can’t help sharing in the pleasure they take with the way that Trump’s very existence exposes the smarmy two-faced hypocrisy of the modern Republican Party. Modern conservatism is built on a base of protecting men’s dominance over women, white people’s dominance over people of color and rich people’s dominance over everyone else, but it’s generally considered impolite to say so bluntly. Instead, it’s standard for Republicans to pretend that policies obviously designed to screw people over are meant to help.  That puts journalists in this terrible situation of having to pretend that Republicans mean well, since it’s generally considered impolitic to call someone a liar.
Trump doesn’t play that game, at least not as much, and it is nakedly obvious that this, and not his actual beliefs and policies, is what angers many of his detractors. Take, for instance, Jonah Goldberg of the National Review on Fox News recently, complaining that Trump is “completely overturning what the Republican reset was supposed to be about after 2012, which was this idea that it was going to be a more consistently conservative but more inclusive and nicer toned party.”
“And instead it’s going to be a less conservative but meaner toned and less inclusive party,” he added.

To which I must again say, “So what?” People who value kindness and inclusivity already have a party. They’re called the Democrats.

12803006_1718058728406271_183103720682307753_nI can certainly attest to that down here in the Mississippi River melting pot of America called New Orleans.  The line’s in Hillary speech that got the most applause for the night were just about that.  Our country is a great country  but unless is kind and inclusive of all its peoples, we’re not being the sort’ve of country that’s the shining beacon on a hill.

So, you’re seeing pictures of the folks working for Hillary here in New Orleans. I added one of the Honorable Anthony Foxx for good measure.  I see lots of YOUNG people with energy, smiling faces, and enthusiasm!

What’s on your reading and blogging list today?  Be sure to holler out about the upcoming primaries in your states!  I know we’ve got lots of Sky Dancers out there ready to vote for Hillary this week and this month!!!

    Looks like the Hil Team is having fun in NO!

    Finally the media is starting to vet BS –

    Long article but worth the time. He has interesting views on education among other things.

    • dakinikat says:

      Great!! I’ll go read it now! The Texas folks are saying his deal to dump toxic waste from Vermont on a small, poor Hispanic town at the border is getting press now too.

    • Valhalla says:

      Here is my tinfoil-y thought: is the media finally starting to vet Sanders because now they have a new favorite in Trump? Trump can be counted on to be even more anti-Clinton than Sanders. Why else start vetting Sanders NOW? He’s pretty much toast after Super Tuesday with no help from them. I think they no longer need Sanders, and are just giving the kiss-off.

  2. jackyt says:

    A very good read that could well explain the sabotage piece at the top of the NYT front page yesterday.

    And another good piece on the schism occurring in the GOP.

    A snowstorm tomorrow may keep me from voting in person tomorrow, but Democrats Abroad have a week to get our ballots in by email, fax or mail. So, tomorrow Hillary gets mine among the millions!!

  3. quixote says:

    John Oliver has a vivid, perfect, 22 minute long demolition of tRumpface –or Drumpf, as we should call him now (see the video!).

    But a small clip that’s part of it amazed even me: It’s Drumpf calling on the US to target terrorists’ families for killing.

    I gather that was a few years ago, but nothing suggests he’s changed at all.

    Can you imagine? If he became Preznit, we’d be looking back on Dubya as a paragon of statesmanship.

    • bostonboomer says:

      No, Trump said that fairly recently–in the last month or so. He was questioned about whether he would really kill the families of “terrorists,” and he refused to repudiated the statement. He was actually saying he would use family members to hunt down potential “terrorists,” so it sounded like he was proposing something like what happened in Nazi Germany.

      I’ll try to find a link for you.

      • bostonboomer says:

        Here’s one link from December:

        Trump: I Would Intentionally Kill Families To Defeat ISIS

        “We have to be much tougher and much stronger than we’ve been,” Trump said at the fifth Republican debate hosted by CNN in Las Vegas. The answer came in response to a question from Josh Jacob, a student at Georgia Tech, who asked, “How would intentionally killing innocent civilians set us apart from ISIS?”

        “You look at the attack in California the other day — numerous people, including the mother that knew what was going on,” Trump responded. “They saw a pipe bomb sitting all over the floor. They saw ammunition all over the place. They knew exactly what was going on.”

        “I would be very, very firm with families,” he added. “Frankly, that will make people think, because they may not care much about their lives, but they do care, believe it or not, about their families’ lives.”

        Watch the video at Think Progress.

        • quixote says:

          Recent. Somehow I guessed it would be the same, whether now or forever. I just feel speechless. This is an Al Capone-level of ethics. A whole new level of sociopath … and we were pretty low before.

    • dakinikat says:

      That nearly has me on tears it’s so funny!

  4. bostonboomer says:

    Today a Time Mag. photographer was grabbed by the neck and slammed to the ground at a Trump rally. They are saying it was a Secret Service man who did this. Trump keeps reporters in a pen or cage at his events and they aren’t supposed to talk to his followers. Why do they even keep covering him?

    A couple of links with video.

  5. bostonboomer says:

    I couldn’t get the Amanda Marcotte link to work. Here it is, in case anyone else had problems.

  6. bostonboomer says:

    Hillary made two appearances in Massachusetts today. She was in Springfield this morning and downtown Boston at around noon. Tonight Bill Clinton will make a late night appearance in Worcester at a get out the vote event. The Bill appearance was last minute, so I think the campaign is pretty sure of a win here.

    Bernie is going to be in Milton. He’ll probably have another mostly-white crowd there.

    I’m so excited for tomorrow!

    • janicen says:

      Nice turnout…

    • ANonOMouse says:

      How’s the weather there BB! I’m hoping there’s a good turnout for Hillary. She really needs MA!!!! A UMass/Amherst poll this morning has her leading in MA by 3. She’s going to clean up in the SEC and I’m hoping she can hold onto MA. I think that might be the first nail in the coffin.

    • Fannie says:

      I am too BB………, just kind of letting it all happen, and hope to wake and take the world on. I am just not listening to Rachel, and she got all the Bernie can win, and how big Tulsi Gabbard quite and came over to Bernie, and how Reich and Grayson came over to.

      I just hope the door doesn’t hit her in ass on the way out.

      • ANonOMouse says:

        I just shot off another email to rachel. In essence what I said was “you spent the first 30 minutes of your show talking about the GOP candidate that’s winning, and the last 30 minutes of your show talking about the Democratic candidate that’s losing. What sense does that make? And why bring Tulsi Gabbard on the first show since Hillary gobsmacked Bernie in South Carolina. Why not bring on someone from the Hillary Clinton camp or one of the hundreds of Congress members who are Supporting HIllary? Why Gabbard? So she can sing the praises of the man who just lost South Carolina by 48%? I hate to break it to you Rachel, but most Americans don’t know or care about what Tulsi Gabbard thinks. Most don’t even know who Tulsi Gabbard is. And you and Tulsi can blame the circumstances in Libya on Hillary until the cows come home, but Hillary wasn’t the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces, Barack Obama was. No opinion of Hillary’s is more important than that of the POTUS. He made the decision to aid the rebels after listening to all of his advisers, including his military adviser. And even though Libya is still a clusterfuck, the call to work with our UN Allies to assist those rebels who were being slaughtered by the monster called Mohammar Khadafi, was the correct call. Democrats don’t want a Dove as Commander-in-Chief, not in the world we live in. And we especially don’t want a Commander-in-chief who supported Fidel Castro. That’s the kind of socialism Americans can live without.”

        And if Rachel doesn’t start to go a little easier on the eye makeup, I fear her eye lashes and eyelids are going to fall off. She really looked rough tonight.

          • ANonOMouse says:

            I’m sure she’s getting tired of hearing from me, but I’m getting tired of her relentless campaigning for Bernie. I suppose she thinks that since it worked for Obama, it might work for Bernie, but as I’ve told her, “give it up, Bernie is no Barack. You and the rest of MSNBC can’t make it happen”.

          • Fannie says:

            ditto ditto ditto…….Tell it like it is Mouse!

          • Fannie says:

            Bernie will be out of this race in two weeks. Tell Ms. Rachel that in your next email.

        • janicen says:

          You are awesome, mouse.

          • ANonOMouse says:

            🙂 I’m just an old gal with not a lot of patience for foolishness and Rachel has become the personification of the word. I can’t wait to see her Bernie contortions after today.

      • Fannie says:

        ooops quit, not quite

  7. janicen says:

    Lots of GOTV going on here in Virginia today too. With regard to voting rights, one thing Terry McAuliffe is doing here and I hope other Democratic governors are doing the same thing, is frantically restoring the voting rights of convicted felons who have served their time. McAuliffe has been the governor for slightly over two years and to date he has restored the rights of over 16,000 people who have served their sentences. More than any other governor. That’s one way to GOTV!

    I’ll be heading back to headquarters tonight to make more calls. Go Hillz!

    • bostonboomer says:

      Thanks for the update, Janicen. I can’t wait till tomorrow!

    • NW Luna says:

      McAuliffe is doing good.

    • Fannie says:

      I luv me some McAuliffe, and glad the’s opening the door for ex felons to vote. Keep us updated.

      • Fannie says:

        Wow, you know what, the Kentucky governor rescinded the prior governor’s bill allowing 77,000 ex-offenders to vote! Think that just happened in last couple of months.

        • janicen says:

          Maybe that’s why it’s better to restore their rights one at a time rather than try to have one bill to restore them all at once. Once the voting rights are restored by the governor they can’t be lost unless the voter is convicted of another felony. Seems ridiculous that the law says they lose their right to vote anyway.

  8. List of X says:

    I read “Donald Trump blamed a poor hairpiece for sparking a misunderstanding” and was only mildly surprised.

  9. Valhalla says:

    A late released poll from Emerson has HRC up by 11 in Mass.

    • NW Luna says:

      In December 1969, he published in The Freeman “Cancer, Disease and Society,” an article based on the work of the Austrian psychologist Wilhelm Reich, exploring whether sexual repression and the stifling of children contributed to cancer.

      The “manner in which you bring up your daughter with regard to sexual attitudes may very well determine whether or not she will develop breast cancer, among other things,” he wrote. He added that it was important for boys to rebel in school because if they bottled up their emotions, “30 years later, a doctor tells him that he has cancer.”

      Ah, the if-you-get-cancer-it’s-your-own-fault idea. Along with it’s OK for boys to rebel (but not girls). I hope he’s dropped those idea.!

    Tried to get to Hillary’s event this morning but there was not a parking spot to be had. Would have had to walk more then a half mile to get to where she was appearing here in Spfld and found out later they turned many away. I went food shopping instead but was very disappointed.

    However, I will be up early on Tuesday to cast my vote once again with the expectation of doing it in November!

    Go Hillary!

    Wow, George Kennedy born 18 Feb 1925, NY – died 28 Feb 2016, Middleton, Idaho….

  13. Fannie says:

    Oops. Sorry about the link. Let me try this one:

    This is the movie that was filmed across the street were I once lived, and where many of us were paid extra’s. I didn’t know that George Kennedy, lived just about 23 minutes from where I live, and will be buried at the Idaho Veterans Cemetery, which is 10 minutes from me. I am going to gather up a special banner for him.

    Salute George Kennedy! So long and Goodbye

    It’s a beautiful sunny day in Virginia today and I’m as excited as I could be about going out to vote for the next President of the United States! HRC2016 HRC2016 HRC2016.

    I’ve already decided that if any Bernie bots approach me with literature as I walk into my polling place, I’m going to chant HRC2016 at them.

    Squeeeeeeeee! I’m so excited!

  15. Riverbird says:

    Good morning, all! I’m excited about today.

  16. Ron4Hills says:

    Just voted in Georgia. I live in an Atlanta suburb. Quite a few other black folks in line. I hope most were for Hills. 🙂 The polls make it sound like she should carry Georgia easily but I never trust the polls.

    Keep your fingers crossed. We may have weakened@Bernie’s in the rear view mirror pretty soon.

  17. janicen says:

    A group of black students were removed from a Trump rally at their own college for…well for being black. They were completely silent and just came to watch the rally at Valdosta State University in GA…

    • Ron4Hills says:

      According to a pundit on Morning Joe more black males are supporting Trump than you would think…W-ever-TF that is supposed to mean.

      I don’t think that will last considering the flirtation with David Duke during these southern primaries and the open hostility to black protesters.

      I do wish the President would hit Trump more on the whole racist birther thing though.

      • janicen says:

        What a BS statement, “…more than you would think…” Well I think that none are supporting him so if ONE is then I guess the statement is correct. I guess some people are dumb enough to buy into their spin but really, how ridiculous.

    Happy Vote-For-Hillary-Day. Now everybody get out there and make it happen!!!

      My husband already texted me a picture of his ballot with HRC selected. I’m waiting to go with my daughter so it will be a little later. Our local news is predicting a huge turnout in Virginia based on the number of calls their League of Women Voters phone bank is getting. I fear many of them are Drumpf voters.
