    Only "serious" candidates, i.e. corporate whores, win Democratic primaries.

    •  Really? (6+ / 0-)

      let's look at the last few to win the Democratic nod, and go on from there.  (Those who failed of election are, by definition, not winners):

      Barack Obama - outsider.  One term Senator, law school professor, community organizer.  Corporate ties limited.

      Bill Clinton - outsider.  Southern governor and attorney.  Corporate ties not overwhelming.

      Jimmy Carter - outsider.  Southern governor, peanut farmer, Navy officer.  Corporate ties not strong.

      I think we should look for a better outsider in 2016.  Insiders (look at the runners-up and failed candidates) are already too ensconced in beltway attitudes and connections.

      I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
