The Democrat dilemma?

by TONI H / January 28, 2016 2:55 AM PST

If HC loses the nomination to Sanders (by being indicted or just outright voter losses), do the Dems really want to now be associated with an admitted Socialist as the possible president of the USA?

I saw an interview on one of the talk shows recently where a Dem strategist was contemplating this issue.....and he had no answer for it when pressed.

Or will the DNC dump someone like Biden or Jerry Brown (gov of CA) into the mix by delegate votes being granted to either one and taking a 'win' out of the hands of Sanders (they actually have that option available) with Elizabeth Warren as VP?

A rich guy that might have more clout than either of them,

and very quietly so, is Mark Zuckerberg. Well, it's not the person but the product he offers. Facebook and other social media networks fly well under the major news outlets but affect the distribution of information nonetheless. That information isn't always the most accurate but accuracy isn't as important as impact these days. Rumor has always piqued our interest more than has facts. Our politicians and business leaders seem to know well the power of social media. Getting airtime is expensive but Facebook and Twitter are cheap or free.

that Zuckerberg won't be voting for Sanders knowing he would want to take 90% or more of his wealth. lol

because paycheck income isn't the only thing Sanders and HC intend to tap heavily.....think capital gains, the Obamacare tax on any property sales, and the death tax, etc. Each are taxed separately by the way.
