Did the televised debates narrow the Democratic field?

Did Kamala Harris-- who is "black"-- trash Joe Biden's civil rights record enough to damage his status as frontrunner?

I thought the moderators were tasked with directing most questions to the Anointed Ones. In the first debate, it seemed like they were asking Warren to follow up on most things the others said. And in the second, the most talk time went to Biden, Sanders, and Harris. Unless the others butted in, they didn't really seem to talk much. The only questions (maybe there was another) directed at Gabbard was why she hated gay people and what she thought of the "wage gap." Yang said his mic was being cut off. In my bubble, Yang and Gabbard are the internet grassroots candidates, not the Party candidates. I liked Buttigieg and the guy from Maryland.

In the end, I think it will be Biden/Sanders/Harris/Warren.

I thought Biden would almost certainly get the nomination but I've completely changed my mind, not just because of the debate performance but the way he has handled it afterward. I think his sell-by date is now long past and eventually people are going to realize he's just not up to the challenge and will have to look for somebody else.

I think Kamala Harris may now be the frontrunner but personally I found her attack on Biden about school busing nauseating as well as completely fake. This is not because I felt sorry for Biden. On the contrary, he came off as a wuss for not being willing to defend his stand on school busing which was perfectly reasonable and eventually shared by about 90 percent of Americans, both black and white.

When I saw the photo of Kamala in pig-tails as that little girl who says she benefited from being bused to a white school I couldn't help but think of my own kids who got bused into the black community to attend what was formerly an all-black school. Unlike her, they didn't think it was such a great experience. Every year we had to keep them home on "cracker day", a day set aside for the black kids to beat up the white kids. Although they eventually brought in the police to prevent it we still thought it was best to keep them home from school that day.

I saw a headline that said Kamala is the one who really puts fear into Trump and this may be true but probably not for the reason the author of that piece was thinking. It's because she is obviously going to play the race card for every thing it's worth and Trump is going to have a hard time taking shots at the little black girl in pig tails.

Swallwell had a well placed shiv with his "when I was 6 years old, a presidential candidate at the California Democratic Convention said 'it's time to pass the torch to a new generation.' that candidate was Sen. Joe Biden." attack. It really underscores how fucking old Biden is. Like, Trump is old, but he doesn't seem old. Biden seems old.

Agree totally. That's a shame about your kids though.

Too funny. I love humor that cuts both ways. My favorite comedians are those who target anyone and everyone.

I'm convinced that many people would sooner sacrifice their happiness and prosperity than forgo their insane obsession with Trump. In fact, I think Trump has become a one-size-fits-all excuse for many people for their failure to do anything productive with their lives.
This is not hypothetical. Many people already HAVE done that.

I recently heard that 1.5% of the rats in Los Angeles have bubonic plague and when it gets to 2% the plague usually makes the jump to humans (not sure how credible that is, maybe Sophie could comment). Cause is the large homeless population and the corresponding filth and feces and litter. Have not heard anything about San Francisco though which I would expect to be worse. I wonder how rampant TDS needs to be to make the jump to the rats? ;D

I saw Drew Pinsky talking about this the other day on TV. He was definitely worried about bubonic plague but he also said California has been dealing with diseases rarely seen in other parts of the country for over 20 years and warned that the rest of the country better get ready to deal with the same thing.

I haven't been able to confirm that it is true but I read recently that there have been confirmed cases of Ebola in Texas among migrants from the Congo. Maybe it's not because I haven't heard anything about it in the MSM and you know they would be reporting it if it was (sarcasm intended).
if there is an Ebola outbreak that can be linked to an illegal border crossing and the Dems persist with their open borders and free medical care for illegals policy, I tend to think Trump will win re-election easily. TDS is a strange malady however, so you never know.
