For John, BLUF: Frankly, I think the Dems need a new National Chairperson. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Hill, Little Debbie says six debates only, and if you get into a debate elsewhere you are off her list.♠
Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is closing the door on adding more Democratic presidential debates, and says that a controversial clause penalizing candidates for participating in unsanctioned debates will stand.Do you think she has figured out the answer to the Chris Matthews question, what is the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist? Or, how about just answering why Senator Bernie Sanders, who organizes with Democrats in the US Senate, is not a Democrat?
Speaking at a breakfast with reporters hosted by The Christian Science Monitor, Wasserman Schultz said the debate schedule was final and there would be no changes.
“We’re not changing the process. We’re having six debates,” said Wasserman Schultz, who has been under fire from several Democratic presidential candidates over the debates. “The candidates will be uninvited from subsequent debates if they accept an invitation to anything outside of the six sanctioned debates.”
