We're back today after a short break for the 4th of July. Since it's Thursday, Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC joins in for our weekly discussion on politics, primaries and priorities. Today, Howie gives in to my line of thinking...
In the last 24 hours alone, Donald Trump endorsed the repeal of ACA with no replacement, Kris Kobach’s voter suppression commission demands voter data from states (1 by 1 they’re saying no), the WSJ report says Michael Flynn may have been part of effort to get Clinton's deleted emails from Russian hackers, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezezinski say Trump used the National Enquirer to blackmail them, and the House Appropriations Committee passed an amendment put forth by Barbara Lee to end the 2001 AUMF- now it goes on to full House & Senate.

In the first hour, Nicole opens the phone lines to get your take on what happened in Vegas and the Democratic party divide.
With gratitude to the inspirational Gliberal Goddesses and chorale of awesome members of The Thundering Herd in Nicole's rocking Live Chat Room this week, we happily present the first of a weekly-ish post and thread dedicated to Vermont's Progressive pride and joy ...

Not [...]
