Who knew you could have so much fun talking about Elizabeth Warren? Join Jim and Greg as they wade into Warren’s accusation that Bernie Sanders told her two years ago that a woman couldn’t get elected president. They also shake their heads as Warren promises to cancel a lot of student loan debt on her first day in office without ever involving Congress. And they preview tonight’s final Democratic debate before the voting in Iowa and address the liberal concerns that there isn’t enough diversity on stage.

    Good thing all these lawyer-politicians know the Constitution so well.

    It’s not an all white debate. It’s only 6143/6144th white.

    For 2016, it might be credible to say the woman candidate only needed to be a little better than Hillary, to beat Trump. But that was when Trump was pretty much a complete unknown, at least presidentially. Now that Trump is no longer an unknown, it seems likely that the (Democrat) woman candidate would have to be WAY better than Hillary, to win.

    Is that something like “99 44/100th % pure?”

    Sorry, Ivory Snow.

    Jim assumes that the Biden and Sanders supporters are as likely to have watched the debates as the supporters of other candidates.

    I suspect that is not the case.

    In particular, I suspect that Biden’s firm support from minorities has not been affected by his many gaffes simply because they never saw them and don’t know about them, except vaguely.

    Political junkies like Jim tend to assume that the general public is as interested — and perhaps well-informed — in politics as they are as.

    Years ago, I remember Rush Limbaugh grumbling that the American people had accepted Bill Clinton’s many scandals. In reality, what they had accepted were vague impressions of one or two scandals.
