    I agree, Bill and I am one of the several on Tidefans who agree with this view. Nothing is more important, IMO than removing Trump from the WH. To me it is quite simple, if Biden or another moderate candidate gets the Dems nomination then the AOC and Bernie crowds have three options, vote for Biden(or other moderate Dem) or Trump or sit at home and not vote which would be a vote for Trump. I do believe the time for ideology is after the scourge in the WH is back in NYC dealing with the SDNY.
    I think Bernie fans and TYT supporters are already gearing up not to vote unless the candidate is Bernie...

    these guys are idiots who just want people to pay attention to them. this play the poor victim crap worked when it was a 2 person race in 2016 and Bernie was the "outsider".

    If the Bernie supporters choose to not support the Dem candidate then they will have to suffer the consequences like the rest of us by having trump in the WH for another 4 years. They obviously care more about their agenda than freeing America from the most despicable person ever to set foot in the WH.

    Yeah I had a Bernie or Buster post the famous Edmund Burke quote "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." when it looked like Bernie had a real chance last year. She was referring to Trump as "evil", but ironically she didn't vote in the general election like many Bernites citing that the DNC cheated.

    Ive already made the decision to vote for the Democrat, but I would prefer it not to be Bernie or Warren. But if it is Bernie or Warren I'm voting for them.

    As a person I probably like Warren less than Bernie because I just don't like either's New Englander crass and arrogance, but her's is worse imo.

    As a candidate she is better than him. I think Bernie has a fruitloop economic plan that even Trump is smart enough to poke holes into. But Warren's temperament is a real concern going against a professional mud slinger,

    But I'm more hoping for Kamala, Mayor Buttgieg, or Biden. None of them, maybe Biden is closer to me, are 100% me, but I think they are the best chances in making this country great again by beating the ogre.

    I agree with the general opinions expressed above. The second worst danger to the republic, after the Trump cabal, are left wing purists...

    Several people I know went to see Warren in Bham and were very impressed.
    This is the darkest timeline.
