And where was Bernie?

Careful elucidation thanks. I thought that the chief concern was that classified email could've ended up in the wrong hands. It seems that did not happen as far as anybody can tell. I know Powell also had emails retroactively classified like Clinton did and essentially stated that was preposterous. Many felt she was exonerated then. In any case, it was an error in judgment clearly for which she accepted responsibility and apologized.

The question now becomes is it enough to keep her from being President over Trump? I certainly doubt that. Mostly partisans care 'a lot' about this issue it seems and many more, like Sanders, are sick and tired of the email discussion. It seems we will see in November how people feel about the 2 standing candidates. I don't believe this isolated issue will ultimately be the deciding factor. Hell everybody makes mistakes -- look at W's presidency. He made some HUGE ones. In any case, November cannot come fast enough.

Reality check incoming...
Sorry Bernie supporters, superdelegates aren’t the reason Sanders is losing to Hillary Clinton.

My comment isn't about Sanders. The mechanism is so over complicated and drawn out that it invites bad behaviors and makes the process so complex that it deters voters and inhibits candidates from entering the race. Look at New York. The board of elections created the rules about party definition. Not the party.

To borrow a phrase from Dan Rather, Hillary Clinton swept through the South like a big wheel through a Delta cotton field on Super Tuesday. She won seven states total, including Alabama, Arkansas, …

This time she's winning the Black and Hispanic votes. 

"We’ve now seen 15 states vote in the Democratic contest, and it’s clear that Clinton’s coalition is wider than Sanders’s. Sanders has won only in relatively small states where black voters make up less than 10 percent of the population. That’s not going to work this year when black voters are likely to make up more than 20 percent of Democratic primary voters nationwide.

On Tuesday, we saw why. As she did in Nevada and South Carolina, Clinton won huge margins of black voters. Her worst performance was in Oklahoma, where 71 percent of black voters in the Democratic primary chose her. In Alabama, she won 93 percent of black voters on her way to winning 78 percent of Democrats overall. Clinton took no less than 64 percent of the overall vote in the Southern states she won.

It wasn’t just black voters, either: Clinton dominated with Hispanics in Texas. There had been some questions about how Hispanics voted in Nevada, but there was little doubt in Texas. The exit poll showed Clinton with a 42 percentage point win among Hispanics, about the margin she won in counties such as Hidalgo, where Hispanics make up 91 percent of the population. Those results bode well for Clinton in states such as Arizona, California, Florida and New Mexico."

Notice how no one is outraged or talking about how Obama's Supreme Court nominee isn't being processed in the Senate?

Because nothing Obama does is ever processed by Congress in any expedient way whatsoever thanks to an utterly useless GOP and an ineffectual Democratic party more beholden to gun lobbyists and ignorant political parties than the majority of the American people.

To paraphrase Bruce Banner....

That's my secret... I'm always outraged.

Watching Bernie supporters confuse audit guidelines with laws is going to be fun.

So threats of violence and death at the Nevada Dem Convention. Sanders? Not condemning a thing. Seems OK with it. Maybe that's why so many democrats have a problem with him.

This is beyond fascinating and a worthy read. These questions are certainly of interest and worthy to ask yet will likely never be as the media has given Bernie much of a pass. 
After nearly 10 months on the campaign trail, Bernie Sanders has managed to avoid all the tough questions. That stops now. Here are 20 burning questions for the presidential candidate that our mainstream media refuses to ask.

High turnout and Clinton wins, which has been a pattern. But I'm sure Bernie disciples will come in here and tell us it isn't voters that got Clinton the win, but dirty tricks that did.

Overwhelming victory for Clinton when voters come out on Super Tuesday. I'm sure Bernie supporters will call it fixed or try to explain away the 700 delegate deficit. Feeling the Bern?

Beats looking like a panicked, 90s Republican.

"In this column, I want to address this notion that Hillary Clinton is somehow a “dishonest corporatist Wall Street shill” or some other such gullible nonsense."

If you need to be convinced she's a disgusting shill for the richest people and corporations, after all that has come out, there's little point in presenting facts and logic to you.
