    and what's worse is you have people in the party trying to spin that as a compromise

    While I have to trust that what the guy has said is being accurately reported, he seems to have said he wants to reduce abortion without having to rework Constitutional issues. If you want to see that as "Anti-Choice", your call. As for me, I have never thought that "Wanting To Reduce Abortions" automatically equals "Anti-Choice". There is a difference.

    Meanwhile...

    6. Setting a goal to become a 100% clean energy city by 2035.

    Omaha is on the way to becoming a clean energy city, yet we have a distance to go. The Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) projects that 30% of its energy sales will be from renewable sources by the end of 2018. The goal is attainable if political will is marshalled behind renewable energy sources, and already numerous peer cities are well on the way. Heath will work with OPPD, other key stakeholders, and community members to put us on a path to 100% by 2035.
    Establish the “Omaha 2×6” Housing Initiative: Establish new public-private partnership to develop at least 2,000 new affordable and workforce housing units over a 6-year period.

    Equip all Police Officers with Body-Worn Cameras: Provide accountability for both law enforcement and the public by fully utilizing body cameras by 2018.

    Establish the Omaha Intergenerational Poverty Commission:
    To pursue a “two-generation” approach to help break the cycle of poverty in Omaha.

    Create a “Child Savings Account” Pilot Project:
    To expand economic opportunity and asset-building for children in low- and moderate-income families.
    While a couple of those things could go either way, that looks pretty solid.

    Let's see...

    https://votesmart.org/candidate/key-...n#.WPgRkdLyuUk

    Date Bill No. Bill Title Outcome Vote
    May 23, 2011 LB 521 Requires Physician Presence During Abortions Bill Passed - Senate
    (38 - 9) Yea
    May 12, 2011 LB 22 Prohibits Insurance Coverage of Abortion Bill Passed - Senate
    (37 - 7) Yea
    April 12, 2010 LB 1103 Prohibiting Abortions After 20 Weeks of Pregnancy Bill Passed - Senate
    (44 - 5) Yea
    April 12, 2010 LB 594 Abortion Screening Requirements Bill Passed - Senate

    Classifying Mello as "Anti-Choice" is not an exaggeration. But please, tell me how he passes the "purity test" as a "legitimate progressive" candidate.

    Heath Mello's voting record on abortion

    Voted to require ultrasounds prior to abortions in 2009
    Voted for screening requirements for all women seeking an abortion 2010
    Voted for prohibiting any Insurance coverage of abortion 2011

    https://votesmart.org/candidate/key-...n#.WPgTnfnyuM9


    If you're fine with this, you're fine with this, but any comment of someone not being 'pure enough' or not being a real progressive goes flying out the window. He has some good policies but he's anti choice. If we disqualify certain politicians based on one issue not being progressive he would be one of them.

    I DO NOT fault Bernie Saunder's support of this man, because I am of the belief that when you have two options for office, you move left when you can. To me if that meant holding my nose and voting for this guy and no other real options were available, I might just do that. Just like I voted for Hillary (after voting for Bernie in the primary) in the November election and just as Bernie did in the November election.

    edit: lol beaten to his votiing record, but the rest still stands.

    I may have beaten you on his record, but you sum up the crux of why this argument is being had in the first place.

    Makes perfect sense.
    You've already stated that Democrats can't rally around Hillary because she's too old now. Well, Bernie's older, so...

    So yes, let's sideline the bitter old coot who let Russia entice his supporters online, and did NOTHING to throw cold water on them, outside of empty promises to campaign to prevent a Trump presidency. Bernie suddenly couldn't be bothered to do anything after letting the DNC nearly devolve into chaos because of his own ego. Now that he's steadfastedly denying he's a Democrat, and even sabotaging some of them because he wants to be the Pope of Progressives and make the rank and file kiss his ring, I'll say it again, he can go away, and I'm fine with it.

    Because I'm looking at rallying around Elizabeth Warren. She's not embittered, or a self-inflicted wound at this point. And she gives the income inequality speech better than Bernie does.

    You realize this works better if leveled against someone arguing for Purity Tests, right? But you really have no response other than to call me a "hypocrite" for pointing this out.

    Hillary was a woman following a black man in trying to be President. As I've noted several times on this thread it was racism and sexism that cost Hillary the White House. Your denial of this fact does not change reality.

    Hillary also ran one of the worst campaigns in history TWICE! Was it sexism and racism again when she ran against Barack?
    According to the Hillary only women then yeah. Remember Obama Boys? She did the same thing to Bernie with Bernie bros.
