    New potential Democrat party leader.

    Chelsea Manning will be running for the Senate as a Democrat. He’s the perfect spokesman for the modern Democratic party.

    Chelsea is a DINO; thus highly unlikely to get elected although stranger things have happened.

    I agree that it’s unlikely that he will get elected, but why you claim he’s. “DINO”?

    She takes no official position on organized labor in this country and tells me that they favor the status quo plus her views on social issues are very narrow focusing on only a few which are of importance to her and her base. No other positions (foreign policy/economics/regulatory) have been defined by her. I believe is a position that a DINO would take. In other words she's aimlessly all over the field.

    You mean Bradley Edward Manning, now Chelsea.

    Wasn't he court marshaled for espionage?

    Perfect Dem candidate.

    Maybe he doesn’t have a grasp of any of the issues.

    why are you calling him “she”? He’s a male, not a female. Maybe his name change fooled you?


    Also, you referred to his base. Who would that be? Conservative types or progressive types?

    I imagine he has very little concrete political understanding. He really should start in local politics and move up. Or try to.

    Based on the limited things I’ve heard from him, he doesn’t sound very intelligent. Could you imagine him being seated on the Senate judiciary committee where he would be firing questions at a nominee for the Supreme Court?
