DNC chair race comes down to Ellison or not Ellison.

If it's Perez we can move this to another thread.

Successful candidate needs 224 votes out of 447 on Feb 25.

All say this is about competing in all 50 states, blah, blah, blah.

Or is this really about saying what activists want to hear and energizing the base?  We will see.

 Donald Trump’s Twitter habits often get him into trouble, but the President has outputted no better tweet than this one Wednesday: “Venezuela should allow Leopoldo Lopez, a political prisoner & husband of @liliantintori (just met w/ @marcorubio) out of prison immediately.”

This was one Trump tweet that didn’t make the front pages, but it might make a difference for the people of Venezuela, who have suffered immensely under the faux democratic dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro.

Leopoldo López was the leader of the Venezuelan opposition party Popular Will until Mr. Maduro railroaded him into a 13-year prison sentence two years ago.

The media have reported on Venezuela’s descent into status as an economic basket case, including shortages of basic foodstuffs and medical supplies. The Maduro government’s survival strategy has been to tough out criticism and let the Venezuelan catastrophe fade from international view.

Taking no chances of anyone noticing, the Maduro government on Wednesday shut down CNN En Espańol, the nation’s last remaining source of independent news.

But President Trump noticed. That tweet demanding the release of Leopoldo López belies Mr. Trump’s reputation for being soft on authoritarian leaders. On Monday the Trump Treasury Department put Venezuelan Vice President Tareck El Aissami on its sanctions list for allegedly aiding drug traffickers.

What a contrast this is to the help and support Venezuelans got from Barack Obama and John Kerry. Which is to say, essentially none, notably on the issue of recalling the despised Maduro government in a popular referendum. Last year the government-controlled national election council slow-walked a decision to permit the referendum, which never happened. International pressure, led by the Obama government, would have helped. It never came.

Credit is due the Trump Presidency for picking up this badly dropped ball.

From post above :

An eye opener. 

Agree with a lot of it.  However there are other factors that contributed to Trump no mentioned.

Such as the threat of giving away  of US sovereignty and the progressive's embrace America bashing and fueling of racism for examples.
It isn't *all* about "jobs"

I like these Crafty. A 6th question for you and Connor and all from the book, A Beautiful Mind:

Two bicycles are twenty miles apart and start toward each other at ten mph each until their front tires meet.  Meanwhile, a fly starts on the front edge of the front tire of the first bike and flies at 15 mph to the second bike and back and forth and back and forth shorter and shorter distances until it is squished in the middle when the two front tires meet.

How far did the fly fly?

Trump is not stupid to want to find a way to have Russia and US work together, but IMHO this idea is a bridge too far and is doomed to failure.

Here is an article in a similar vein:
