  1. Julian Mulvey:

    What (Sanders) continues to say is we shouldn't jump the gun on impeachment. I think that's absolutely right, there's going to be increasing pressure to do so, but at this moment in time, that's not the Democratic message and that shouldn't be the core of the Dem message. He's right to hold people off of that.

Something that may strike a note with them, whether it be Common Core, abortion rights, you know, just the Constitution, gun rights. I try and get an interest to get people to come and look at Sen. Cruz and see what it is that I'm talking about.
