“Front-runners don’t always get nominated” – FiveThirtyEight: “…if Biden were to vary, it would not be the first early primary front-runner will come to shortly. To understand curious about how other high-name-recognition early runners went, we looked at candidates who have not led consistently in the polls at the beginning of the campaign to win their party’s nomination. And we found four candidates since 1972 who fit that bill [sen. Ed Muskie, the former Colorado Sen. Gary Hart, Hillary Clinton and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani]. Some of the strategic errors, or had personal weaknesses that led to their demise. Others were triggered by to not underestimate the power of the media in the primary process. In still other cases, unexpectedly strong opponent, and the volatility of the primary calendar gave them trouble. And, for some, their views were simply out-of-touch with their primary electorate, they are particularly vulnerable.”

Your strategic need – right – now – just to decide the people that ‘She’s solid’ and put it on your list of ” acceptable.’ It has no strategic interest to compare this beginning of the people, “” your, Biden, Harris, or others. … Force, the choice can come later, in the Democratic marathon, after the people with her.”

Trump to play “Mystery Science Theater 3000” with The debate – WSJ: “President Trump’s political advisers wanted the President out of Twitter during the Democratic debates of the next week, with the argument that there is a benefit in letting potential Challenger to attack each other, without distraction. Now there is a new strategy. The President has spent years trying to embrace social media for its political advantage, is subject to the planning to live-tweet the debates, June 26-27, according to people familiar with the planning. Mr. Trump, even from a remove, the are always promised to be the most important figure in the debate. Regardless of the specific debate the issues, hear many democratic voters how each candidate plans to take down Mr. Trump. Interaction in real-time on Twitter would make Mr Trump and the presence of more tangible, by directly inserting himself in a political discussion is unfolding on the stage.”

The rest of the list is filled with actions that you would take with the Executive, the presidency…”

Bullock qualified for the second July-debates – Political: “[Montana Gov. Steve] Bullock is not on the stage during the first round of the Democratic debate in Miami next week. But he has now qualified for the July debates. By collecting 1 percent in a CBS News poll in Iowa on Sunday, Bullock has exceeded released now the 1-percent mark in three surveys, qualified for the second round of the discussions of the last two days of the month, in Detroit. … Bullock is the 21 candidates qualifying for the July-debate… This could (possibly) triggers a series of tie-Break rules, the prioritized candidates, the cross is both the polling and donor-threshold, followed by candidates who only crossed the polling threshold (sorted according to the polling average), followed by candidates, the only hit of the donor threshold… now, Rep. Eric Swalwell and Bullock are effectively tied for the 20th spot, with each of the identical polling averages…”

Perez must have a headache – Political: “Tom Perez is not the panel recoil just about his management of his party’s unruly presidential primary field. He also has 280 components, in the Congress, some of which sound out of public. The Democratic National Committee Chairman is the face of the presidential debate rules allow it, a meditation guru to the stage next week, while a red state on the Western Governor’s watch in the TV.

KMOX: “Mayonnaise is available in large sizes for putting on sandwiches, egg salad, etc … But one thing we can all agree that it IS NOT meant for eating straight from the jar during a baseball game. This past weekend a Memphis Redbirds-decided fan, throw all caution to the wind, despite his stomach’s interest and spent the whole baseball game, dinner, a glass of mayo. It was really interesting, to say the least. To him, each time in a new seat, to see if the team tweeted further updates that the people were shocked that he was still maintaining a steady ‘mayo-eating” pace. In spite of communal disgust, Mayo man remained true to himself through and through and is an inspiration that we all should be able to, what snack we are so please to a baseball game, no matter how much it grosses people out.”
