Tons of players on the field anyways. It's all theater until later in the year.
Good point and maybe that is the reason for the delay. Julian Castro said he would try to release his before the debates so it probably just varies from one to the next. I listened to an interesting NPR story about the candidates in Iowa. They asked 9 people who supported Bernie in 2016 who they were behind this go around and 5 of 9 said Beto. Only 1 said Bernie.

Centrist Dems would have been considered mainline Republicans in the 70s and 80s. The parties in this country have moved so far right, the majority of Dems are indistinguishable from Republicans. That corporate rule is just codifying what they've already been practicing for years. drymounting gross.

Well done, Bernie.

Bernie Sanders, Now a Millionaire, Pledges to Release Tax Returns by Monday

Not sure why it matters that he is now a millionaire...

FWIW: Gillibrand, Klobuchar, Inslee have already released their 2018 tax returns. Warren released 10 years of her returns last year.

Joe Biden to Attend Fundraiser Held by Comcast’s Top Lobbyist

As a senator, Biden took thousands from Comcast employees and did not back bipartisan net neutrality legislation...

Everything I said about Sanders I apply to Biden as well. I like him and many of his policies but I think he needs to be led to the edge of the ice flow to have his own little iceberg chipped off so he can float off into the political oblivion. I don't think the solution to a crazy old white man as president is and OLDER white man. Go have a cup of warm milk and settle into your favorite chair uncle Joe.

Biden is old with old ideas.
Sanders is old with young/progressive ideas.

Operative word in both sentences is old. Am I the only person on this board that knows people in their 80s and has known them long enough to see the diminishing of their mental acuity? The hardest job in the world should not go to someone who is well past their prime. Reagan and Trump have both shown us that. Biden and Sanders are nearlya half a decade older than either Reagan or Trump.

Might I suggest that Bernie's run this time might be a play for $$$? According to his tax returns his previous run made him rich.
