I agree, pretty much. I think she'll get backers that keep her relevant because the money understands there's an advantage to having a woman in the primary who can take shots at Hillary without getting slammed as sexist. I doubt she'll get on the ticket as VP, and I doubt she's vying for that role.

I also agree Walker looks like the front runner. He's still developing, but he starts from a very strong position. If he can avoid any major flubs that the media can run with, he has a real shot.

I was talking production CO2 from an EV car versus production CO2 from a traditional car. The former is much more difficult to manufacture, and releases significantly more CO2 in the process. I believe small traditional cars like the Honda Civic are by far the most responsible cars to purchase if you truly care about CO2.

That's not the impression SpzToid's post gave. He speculated explicitly that Hillary was influenced by Bush 43's bad actions. Thus one would conclude she is excused for such mistakes.

Calling out hypocrites is about as productive and difficult a task as shooting fish in a barrel.

After some quick digging, this appears to be the law broken:

Basically, she was required by law to archive her communications on federal servers. She did not.

Also of note, according to TSG she forwarded classified intelligence Emails to Sidney Blumenthal, who was not a federal employee.

McD's will of course SAY that the moves are for better customer experience and not a reaction to increased labor costs.

But that doesn't mean the labor costs played no factor.

I'm sure their bean counters did exhaustive analysis of the cost/benefit of the change, where one of the big variables was labor cost. They'd have been irresponsible not to. It's obvious both customer experience and labor costs contribute here.

Editorializing "See, minimum wage isn't a factor! Look! Look!" clearly demonstrates a bias in the article.
