Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti will not run for president – POLITICO

I’ve been a resident of the city of Los Angeles for the last 18 years. so I seen a couple of mares come and go but not as good as Eric Garcetti. I have seen tangible changes in our city since he has become mayor. I think he would be a great president but I’m pleased that he’s remaining in Los Angeles as our mayor.

I watched Mayor Garcetti walk the picket lines and marches with our teachers and eventually he helped to broker the deal that ended the teacher strike and car are schools open and on a better path.

Bernie Sanders apologizes to women on 2016 campaign who were ‘harassed or mistreated’ – CNNPolitics

Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Daily today said it best, how can Bernie Sanders defends this by saying he was busy, does he not think the president is going to be busy? Does he not not realize that saying that limits his appeal?

I have lost friendships over Bernie Sanders. I don’t understand his appeal. He’s an old Jewish man and that’s coming from another one, me. I believe that he was the reason we have Donald Trump. let’s not make any mistake about it he attacked Hillary for her being a woman who made some speeches after she left office. That attack stuck. I heard it’s from people on the street during 2016 all the time. They said that she was in the pocket of Wallstreet, whose refrain is that?

You run a campaign and it will demonstrate how you will run the country. Case and point:

Donald J Trump.
