Isn't this the woman behind the leak of the debate questions to Clinton? If she is writing things like this, could it be that the Democrats are moving to supporting Sanders for 2020 (who else have they got)?

I hope Sanders doesn't stand, even tho I support his politics. His candidacy was damaged by genuine complaints from black people that they were largely ignored by him until they embarrassed him, and even then their policy involvement was largely totemic.

So, it would be far better to have a new bernie like candidate who learns the lessons of his campaign.

For what it is worth, he is now popular among black respondents in popularity polls and he should have time to work on his messaging. And prepare the tax returns (unless they were hiding something really damaging).

He is old though, and needs to find someone to pass the torch to anyway. Question is if they have someone to pass the torch to.

No.
Do. Not. Go. There.

Return to "Bernie Bro" revolt against the DNC in several state caucuses and subsequent litigation of fraud against the DNC.

Either all black people supported Hillary Clinton or all black people supported Bernie Sanders. Which is it this week?

Yes it is her.

I think at the least, she is positioning herself for a future where the Sanders wing of the party holds significant power. Which looks a bit odd, considering the purge of the DNC, but I think things are happening on the state level.

I for one assume her motive is simply money, proceeds of book sales. I'd bet she started writing day after the wikileaks dump, when DNC abandoned her "loyalty." Some call that "walk-away money."

Vindication acceptable to "Bernie Bro" insurgents is too far a stretch for her future employment. She's over 30 and not even blond. Let's be real.

Does anybody actually buy these books? Do they then read them? Does anybody here know anybody who knows anybody who does? Here is Current Affairs (not online) on What Happened
Reader, we can't do it. We were begged. "But it is an extremely important book," they said. "Regardless of what you think, when a major party candidate gives their candid perspective on an important election, it is worth at least writing a review." And we can't argue with them. They are right. Nevertheless: it is impossible. We cannot review Hillary Clinton's What Hap- pened, because we would have to read Hillary Clinton's What Happened, and this is simply impossible.

A cursory search for Clinton sales finds the number 300,000 sales repeated. So I guess it sold well. Brazile's book is on the Amazon bestseller list (number nine, right now) so I guess it is selling well.

Unless those numbers are as fake as the numbers of Facebook users, which is so very possible.

In a merica, people buy books, celebrity biographies and DIY, but they don't read them.

When I worked for BBC News, I'd often go into the Newsnight office (nightly deep dive into issues prog) and sift through their shelves of unread political books (free to a good home - please/beg). Some genuinely interesting but an awful load of clunkers. I'd have left Hillary's book on the shelf
