Still at work, can't listen to podcast, can't access NYT. However, if HRC did say caucuses are undemocratic, I agree. The number of people who can't attend them is large and often at work on the weekend, are family caregivers, have children to mind, can't invest the hours they have to spend at a cau...

Re: New Diseases

Not panicking yet. We don’t yet know how dangerous the new coronavirus is – and we won’t know until more data comes in. Twenty-six deaths out of 800 reported cases would mean a 3% mortality rate. However, this is likely to be a overestimate since there may be a far larger pool of people who have bee...

I can't figure out who to pick. I see Klobuchar's good points, but she helped Trump pack the courts. Not sure if that is forgivable. Correction - that is not forgivable.
