I am a late comer to this thread, but after watching part of Thursday night's debacle (or was that a debate?) by the secdon round od Democratic candidates.... I am no supporter of Trump, but unless the Dems can stop sniping at each other, and present a united front, be may be faced with four more years of him. And no, I do not think an impeachment would work. Remember, it is the Senate who tries the case, and it looks to be firmly in the hands of the Republicans.

It's only natural politics for so many same-party rivals to winnow the competition. I saw only the second round of the forums. It seemed that most of the candidates were trying to show their liberal/left cred, and that only a couple were positioning themselves as moderate alternatives to Trump.

I am in total agreement that the dems need to entirely unite in support of whom ever it is that ultimately earns the nomination for the party. I’m inclined to think that 2020 will be different from 2016 in that regard. PSfB has been doing his best to unite the opposition. The Dopey Donnie’s are the great uniters, that’s not to say that PSfB’s is a guaranteed one termer. It’s a very real possibility that PSfB will get re-elected. 2018 was a blue wave where it was possible to do so. I’m inclined to think that that wave will continue.

In general the Democratic message isn’t to far removed from that of their convention in 2016, which by the way was great messaging, the baggage was Hillary, who by the way I have developed an admiration for. So the challenge is not so much ideological as it is presentation, in particular, the personality who will lead the party.

For me, It is hard to imagine loosing a personality fight with Dopey Donnie but the way the national worm has turned it is as I said, “a very real possibility PSfB gets re-elected”. He is the first president to step into North Korea, that is an historical photo-op.

I didn’t mind what I witnessed with the two nights of Dem “debates” We had the opportunity to witness their individual personalities in a highly competitive and I imagine a stressful situation. It was revealing and helpful in separating the weaker personalities pure and simple.

I know who I don't want and so all the dems have to do is choose someone and that person has my vote. I know it seems shallow but we can't have four more years of Donald--we simply can't.
