Where are you getting that Florida is secure? I'm not challenging the assertion I just haven't heard as much anywhere, and I'd figure that the lower black turnout would hurt Clinton pretty badly in Florida.In other news Clinton is ahead enough in polling in her firewall (excluding NH) and Florida that I think it's safe to say she's stabilized after the Comey incident and should be a heavy favorite (more than the 70-30 that it would've been earlier this week) barring additional FBI announcements over the next few days
Well I never said secure, I said that her polling lead there of late (she's led in 5/6 of the most recent polls and is +3.5 in the most recent two) would indicate that she's in a fairly decent position that will at the least force Trump to spend more time/resources there. She's doing better there than she is in New Hampshire now, though yes the black turnout decrease and early voting records are not particularly promising for her. The key is that her firewall holds and the stabilization that's happened in the last ~48 hours would indicate that she's in a much better position to do that now (and will probably be in a better position to do that on election day) than she was a few days ago. If the election were today I'd put the odds are 3 to 1 of a Clinton win (versus maybe 2 to 1 this past Monday/Tuesday) but I feel like it'll expand to 4 or 5 to 1 by the time the fallout from the FBI investigation announcement ends (most likely early next week).Where are you getting that Florida is secure?

Any candidate? There were some some other truly terrible ones this year. Off the top of my head: Carson and Cruz. Carson made Trump look knowledgeable, and I'm just about convinced that Cruz is an egomaniac not unlike Trump. That's not even mentioning Fiorina (no experience) and Huckabee (says crazy shit).I vowed a long time ago that I would vote for neither Trump nor Hillary (would have voted Republican if it were ANY candidate but Trump)
In the attachment is their General Election Transition Concept... 2 months before the primaries started.
Take a gander at the specific goals section:Objective of Comm Plan
● Frame the general election race for press and electorate at large: why HRC is running, contrast with GOP, what’s at stake for target voters (will take place in BG states, but national framing is the core objective).
● Secondary objective will be communicating Democratic unity and using Sanders and others to help drive contrast and urgency.
2015 endorsements were preplannedSpecific Goals ● Reroll out core campaign message (fighting for us)/make the contrast with the GOP clear
● Put the GOP immediately on the defensive and create crosspressure between general election and primary messages; force them to get firmly on the record with right wing positions
● Protect and reinforce leads with key constituencies
● Conduct tour in key markets to hit BG voters; focus on states that didn’t get as much time in primaries
● Demonstrate unity through POTUS, Sanders, O’M and other endorsements. Have primary opponents help drive contrast and urgency.

Special team of reliable GOP opposition surrogatesthis may be a good project for DWSwho birddog GOP candidates, especially likely nominee, at their events (need special staff team at HQ that does this); reinforce basic contrast message and try to push them further to the right.
- Women’s bus tour chasing GOP; speaking at events and challenging them to be clear on women’s health/equality issues
- Hispanic activist groups to protest GOP events; seek outside groups to badger GOP candidates, get them on the record
- AA team; POTUS legacy?
- Youth group? Hollywood types or digital influencers?

This isn't in keeping w the agreement. Since we clearly have some leverage, would be good to flag this for him. I could send a signal via Welch--or did you establish a direct line w him?

Honestly doubt they read through 650k emails and investigated them properly in such short time to be honest.Hey, you guys know that big Hillary email news that broke last Friday and brought Trump to within striking distance in the polls? Turns out that was nothing according to Comey's letter today. Hope there's gonna be a big rebound towards Clinton
I don't. I do however expect them to investigate them and perhaps seek out keywords/hidden messages and look into it, considering a large amount of the population (and not only select few) openly believes the Clintons are behind high treason, possible murder and even child trafficking. If it's false, then so be it, we were all fooled. If it's true, then this is a matter of absolute national security and an even greater problem within the government.if you actually think the fbi reads emails one by one, you're an idiot
And how many investigations (by people who are no fans of Hillary, no less) is it gonna take you to admit this? A third? Fifth? The tenth one?If it's false, then so be it, we were all fooled.
Honestly I can't answer that, because we both know if I said "three" I'd be lying. What I am saying is that there is no investigations lasting less than a week regarding heavy accusations like this. We have had investigations over here lasting years over possible spy activities, purely to find if there's any ground on the claim. Her accusations are slightly heavier than that. And if even a single of those have a sleigh of truth, then that alone is a heavy offense.And how many investigations (by people who are no fans of Hillary, no less) is it gonna take you to admit this?
