    To answer the original question with another: Do the campaigns ever stop?

    Because she has been outed, even by Wapo as a fake.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday that she was sorry that she identified herself as a Native American for almost two decades, reflecting her ongoing struggle to quiet a controversy that continues to haunt her as she prepares to formally announce a presidential bid.

    Her comments more fully explain the regret she expressed last week to the chief of the Cherokee Nation, the first time she’s said she was sorry for claiming American Indian heritage.

    Bernie has a small chance but I do not think he will get there. The Dems will do what they did to him last time.

    Odds currently to be Dem primary winner are:

    Harris 4
    Orouke 7
    Biden 7
    Sanders 15
    Warren 20
    Klobucher 15
    Gillibrand 20
    Brown 15
    Gabbard 23
    Clinton 40

    As you can see its a pretty open field and plenty of others probably going to put hat into ring.

    So - she appologized. For something she said which might have been misunderstood but hurt nobody.

    Just remind me - when did the big bully and liar sitting in the white house appologize for any of his lies and his hate speach which does actually does hurt people? Trump is revolting and directly responsible for hate crimes and the corrosion of democratic institutions.

    No point in analysing at this stage the odds. The crook who is sitting currently in the white house was 22 months prior ot the elections not even in the race.

    More interesting is - will the GoP go with some other candidates into the primaries? I guess while it appears Trump is owning the party ... there still must be somewhere a decent human being on the conservative side who sees the crook for what he is?

    You might be interested in GOP primary winner.

    Trump 1.50 (so not a given by any means, that is a 2 in 3 chance)
    Haley 18
    Pence 20
    Kasich 25
    Romney 50
    Ryan 40
    Sasse 50
    Corker 50
    Owens 160

    Plenty on the rest.

    The rich are getting richer in America. Asset inflation has meant that a greater percentage of equity is now concentrated in the top 1% whilst middle incomes are stagnating. Are employee share ownership plans on the agenda in the USA? Does it help explain the rise of populism and the extreme right?

    How America’s 1% came to dominate equity ownership

    At this point I don't think it matters who the Democrats nominee is.
    Still there is a long way to go, and a deep recession would play into the hands of the socialists.

    As someone on another board mentioned:

    "Two really old NY Jews, who are not Democrats are the top 2 primary candidates, in a Democrat party who hates old people and Jews."

    What a time to be alive!

    What a weird comment coming from a stauch supporter of the biggest liar and crook ever dwelling in the white house ... but then projection of their attributes onto other people seems to be one of the strongest traits of Trump and many of this supporters.

    I wouldn't know how a party can "hate" at all, only people can do that.

    Do you mean to say that you are hating old people and Jews?

    Tell us more ...

    I love old people and I love Jews. In fact I have family members living in Israel. But that aside, its just ironic that the party that does not like Jews and has a thing about old white men and entitlement and privilege, well the two front runners and contenders for their top position are both very old, very white and of Jewish origin. You just can't make that kind of stuff up.
