    This is only the surface of how unprofessional the IDP was during the 2016 election. There was one goal. Elect Hillary Clinton at any and all costs, even if it meant losing down ticket elections including those candidates that were Hillary supporters. This started at the grass root level with County Chairpeople that undermined and marginalized the Bernie supporters.

    I witnessed Jessica being pushed aside during the roll call. I was on the floor with my camera and made my way to the iowa delegation and shot the Iowa roll call…I didn’t know Jessica but saw them try to block the view of any Sanders signs.

    Well, she meets all the requirements of the DNC. She’s good to go! That party can’t fix itself!

    I do not know Dr. McGuire, but I do know that, in my opinion, the Democrats ran the worst Presidential campaign in the history of the U.S. We have the Orange Julius in the White House as a direct result of a terrible campaign, and a more terrible Democratic Candidate. It wasn’t a case of Trump having more voters, it was a case of the Dems not getting out and voting because they seemed to feel betrayed by their party, and they were “dumb” as to the facts., and the people running the campaign failing to do what they needed to do in terms of anticipating Trump’s attacks and being able to derail them. This President, his congress, and soon to be “trumps supremes” on the court are the worst bunch of powerhungry bullies and thieves that have ever graced the halls of Capital hill. Our so called reps don’t even bother to pretend they are doing their job any more, or pretend they care about voters’ concerns, they just do as they please in their own little war between the parties, which are both corrupt as hell. Voters have been laying the track for a long time in this country, now the train is coming and they don’t know how to stop it.
