like I said I'm hopeful but worried. if he pulls out an early win or two who the fuck knows what's going to happen. biden ain't it, bernie would need abnormal turnout from young people, and warren, seemingly the one to do it, has faded a little bit as of recent which has coincided with pete's rise

I'll exhale when it's in hindsight, until then I'm not taking anything off the table
So true, sad thing is that if he was president he still would be infinitely better for black people than Trump

That letter from the other day must have been the final straw. Good riddance. Now whom do her votes flock to is the next question.

Warren, Sanders, Biden, buttigieg will be the final four, and I think Pete will surprise a lot of people here in terms of how well he does.

Is this real?

If so, how is it even a thing?
She's a well-educated, professional, black woman. Depicting her as having a less significant career and being a race-traitor is step one for white supremacists and Russians.

Bring on the Bernie heart-attack, Biden dementia, and Warren headdress memes I guess.

I'm about as left wing as you can get. Kamala is no friend of the working classes and has a sparkling record of locking up low income individuals for trivial offenses. Good riddence
okay but y'all love posting right wing/russian memes "for laughs" without realizing how many people easily get fooled by that shit, case in point people in this thread. maybe don't do the russians' work for them.

or is promoting propaganda fine when it's a candidate we don't like?

it's a credit to how much activists have changed the conversation around the carceral state and criminal justice that her prosecutorial record has been a liability in a way that it wouldn't have been in past elections (anecdotally, I've been in multiple conversations with not enormously left-wing friends and acquaintances where it came up unprompted as a reason why they weren't supporting her)

I'm surprised she's dropping out so early, but this isn't too unexpected.

It'll be good to see the Democratic field cut down some more.

She was bad, she ran her campaign badly, her bad fanboys (they were mostly men!) did the most, and the media that helped obfuscate her badness prior to the race were the ones to pound the final nail.

Quality content.

You know she's criticized just as much, if not moreso, on the left than the right

Going to come down to Warren, Sanders, and Biden. And once either Warren or Sanders goes the other will get their voters and then the real fight with Biden will begin.

Harris is the VP pick for Biden or Buttigieg.

In fact, wonder if the offer has already been made.

Man I remember a while back a lot in Poliera really thought Harris and Gillibrand would light things up during the race this year.

People learned little from 2016.

A lot of respect for her dropping out now and not taking time away from the debates. There's about 10 more that need to drop out still.

Her freefall from being a very possible contender to absolutely nothing will probably be one of the most memorable highlights of this primary season.

Didn’t she already qualify for the Dec debate? One of 6 as it stands? Weird to drop out before then and not in January.

But yeah. What a shame. She was the candidate to beat Trump but she was killed by her own campaign.

I would argue that depicting her as a literal cop is also an effective way to convey the real world effects of her position as a prosecutor.

and disrespecting peoples' gender identities,
She did what now?

That being said, screaming at her dropping out when all these nobody 1%ers are still around. I hope they take the hint.
