Check out this gem from the latest batch of leaked DNC e-mails released by Wikileaks:


Panel on Dems path forward

* HRC ran through June in 2008, but right about this point she started to back off Obama attacks, Sanders isn't really.

o We'll see what happens after Tues, Sanders will probably lose big in PA

o He's doing damage by hitting her on trust, honesty, authenticity, judgment

* What is Sanders going to do to get his supporters on board? Dem party planks taking on Wall St, oil/gas

o There will be negotiations, but Clinton people will have much more leverage

* HRC will go into gen election has vulnerable candidate

o Dems don't even pay attention to email story

o Clinton Foundation quid-pro-quo worries are lingering, will be exploited in general

* Move to the left on illegal immigration, tougher for Hillary?

o Yes, Super PAC paying young voters to push back online on Sanders supporters

o She's forced to continue to appeal to young liberals as opposed to pivoting back to center

They also acknowledged the existence of their paid online shilling campaign in that e-mail. Unsure

Nothing. That's exactly my point.

No, I did mean moderates, or at least the genuinely undecided people.

My first reaction to her pick was of course, pick a white, Catholic male, you know...a minority. Big Grin

White, had a penis, appeals to the center/independents.

Pretty much as predicted.
