My feeling is that the corporate faction of the Democrats have never had those values in the first place every since Clinton brought neoliberalism to the Democratic party. They've always been wonks for the millionaire class, but polite and culturally aligned with urbane liberals.

At this point? When in the last 60 years was it not clear that the executive branch needn't do shit about Congressional approval?

Through the 60s and 70s, nearly every single policy on Vietnam was carried out through the executive branch because Congress didn't want to touch it. Reagan's ventures needed no approval from Congress, nor did Clinton in Somalia or Kosovo. The Bush administration went to Congress regarding Afghanistan and Iraq because they knew they had support and it made it more "official", but there was no formal declaration of war in either case (and hasn't been one since Korea). Random missiles strikes and military maneuvers across every administration required no formal sign-off from Congress.
Exactly. If anything I was being pragmatic, to grant even that. That's why if we even assume the president doesn't have the power and somehow it's some deep state shit (what some moderates like to believe), then I want my president to use their platform to point out why the decision making wasn't in their hands. To just continue these wars is a huge deal to me, so if a president does not do everything in their power to bring them home, then yes I will attack them. This includes Sanders should he get the nomination. Many moderates hate to blame their favorite presidents simply because they were democrats.

Same guy is also hinting that Biden isn't leading in the poll.
Aaaah you are right https://twitter.com/ArjavRawal/status/1221255434335449089?s=20

ABC hasn't had a poll since October: Biden 28, Warren 23, Bernie 17. So maybe Warren is leading?

He also said this though:


So probably The Bern is leading?

This is more exciting than a Nintendo Direct.

Yea, if it's not Biden it has to be either Bernie or Warren.

It’s definitely Bernie from his tweets, he’s a Warren fan and isn’t too enthusiastic about the results.

NH poll tomorrow that qualifies Yang too from his leaks.

Is Buttigieg one and done after Iowa? Is he polling well enough in NH to push on if he falls to third place or worse in Iowa?
