Tad Devine Signs On To Work With Bernie Sanders On Potential 2016 Presidential Run

Washington Post, November 11, 2014, by Robert Costa

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has spent months fishing for a strategist to guide his potential 2016 presidential campaign.

On Monday, he hooked a big one: Tad Devine, one of the Democratic Party's leading consultants and a former high-level campaign aide to Al Gore, John Kerry, and Michael Dukakis.

Game Over: Keystone XL “Clone” pipeline already under construction.

FSTV and the last election.

Thom/FSTV I don't know how or why your show was moved to it's present hours, but you eliminated two thirds of the electorate, as with your present hours, they who work for a living never ever see your show. Besides, being a Navy retired Farmer, it interferes with my daytime operations and with you, Steffanie Miller and Bill Press, I am turned into a 7 or 8 hour couch potatoe. I find it hard to get on my tractor at times due to my indolence. Solution for the health of our nation: Over the weekends, run reruns of all of those shows

Do we REALLY support the troops?

Today, (like every day) is a good day to thank the soldiers that have served our country, who give and have given the ultimate sacrifice. They should be thanked not only in word but in deed too. If they are to fight for a cause, that cause better be correct. Because WE are responsible for our government and its officials, WE are responsible for our soldiers. They deserve our love, our care and our honesty!

They deserve the truth.

Liberal-ness: Own it!

I would love to see a full-fledged, long-term (permanent) marketing campaign by DNC, or some progressive group, which puts the message out there that "Liberal is good". It doesn't have to be tied to the Democratic Party; it can be a generic "liberal is good" image message. I remember a few years ago when liberals would hesitate to claim the label (that's when "Progressive" became an alternative term). Well, let's flip the image.

America: Meet Your Overlord Rupert Murdoch...

Thom plus logo The main lesson that we've learned so far from the impeachment hearings is that if Richard Nixon had had a billionaire like Rupert Murdoch with a television network like Fox News behind him, he never would've resigned and America would have continued to be presided over by a criminal.
