Ezra Klein is one of the best political minds I've read. Parsing this mess, I think he's hit it on the head.

The set-up for Trump's run really was the name recognition he gained in the reality TV world... and a narcissist cannot give that up. He isn't here because he has a goal for America... he just needs to feed his attention quotient.
We are so busy laughing at Trump that we’ve lost sight of how dangerous he is.

James the only thing I have heard from Clinton or Saunders is they are
going to help the poor ,and the sick they are going to allow all peoples
into the u.s. without even a back ground check all the programs are either
non sustainable or foolish. Trump and the republicans talk about protecting
our citizens and if we cut down on the flood of immigrants coming into
america we just might bring down the unemployment rate.
They are all better Clinton or Saunders. Personally I like rubio
Go, go rubio.

It remains a dance... we grow more aware of the world, and we become more reasonable about the place of other people's contributions- but there remains a portion of folk that only read stories about themselves. I always had more fun heading into new worlds...
The cover is more diverse than any of the Oscars acting categories.

Granted... I WANT Sanders...  but I'd rather vote for Clinton, than any candidate either the GOP or Tea Party might fly.

I LIKE Melissa Harris-Perry. I like her show, the professorial approach to news... and the particular cadre she draws from as her 'panels' probe our social and political choices.

I don't like bullies.
I have been the one to throw myself in front of rabid drunks, rude teens, and attacking youngsters. I don't let folks attack the un-prepared. Not if I'm there.

The fact that MSNBC has a black female lead show is a plus... some of their forays into 'people of color' as host haven't done as well. The women's voices that MSNBC has 'lost' in the host line-up broke my heart. Alex Wagner and Joy Reid were favorites... but couldn't draw the numbers they needed for the company to consider them viable, I assume. There is nothing wrong with these women's minds, and they offer a great deal of insight to political wrangling to ME... I think like  a teacher, not a politician.

A little deductive reasoning:
Whom does recent legislation benefit?
What 'entities' actually aid the 'pursuit of happiness?'
From historical reference, where has our economy done best, and where has it fallen off a cliff???
Let the answers to these questions guide your next step.

Yes, but while all of those may be universal, most of them are not single payer. You can have a good health care system without single payer. Ask the Germans and the French and the Swiss and the Japanese and the Australians.

Also, the Swiss health care system looks like Obamacare. We can build on Obamacare and get universal health care. Single payer is politically impossible, but we have other options.
