The Wisconsin primary is an open primary which means Independents and even Republicans can register as Democrats and vote in the Democratic primary.  Stats show that true Democrats vote heavily for Hillary, but she cannot prevail there unless the real Dems go out there and vote for her.

It’s Primary Day, Wisconsin! Retweet if you’re heading to the polls and voting for Hillary.

If you are in Wisconsin, you can help by making sure senior and disabled relatives, neighbors, and friends can get to the polls to vote.  If you need help finding your polling place, here is what you can do.

Wisconsin: Go vote today! Text WHERE to 47246 to find your polling place.

Make sure your friends in Wisconsin vote for Hillary today! Send them a message with our friend finder:

We can still make calls to make sure Dem voters in the Badger State get out there and cast their ballots.

I was watching CNN and the Brookfield WI polling place has this appliance or something attached to the wall mounted on a couple of 2x4s.  I can’t make out what it is.  It has an electrical cable attached to it. It looks for all the world like Hillary’s logo.

Hillary was in Eau Claire today with Tammy Baldwin.  According to CNN’s Dan Merica, Hillary decided it was time to pull her voter registration card out of her pocket and pull rank. Good for her!

In Wisconsin, Clinton says Sanders is a Democrat-come-lately

Eau Claire, Wisconsin (CNN)Hillary Clinton wants voters in Wisconsin to know that she has been a Democrat for much of her adult life. Why? Bernie Sanders hasn’t been.

Clinton said her near-lifelong membership to the Democratic Party was “important” in the nomination contest while campaigning here on Saturday, two days ahead of Wisconsin’s Democratic primary.

“I am also a Democrat and have been a proud Democrat all my adult life,” Clinton said. “And I think that is kind of important if we are selecting someone to be the Democratic nominee of the Democratic Party.”

“I am not a Democrat and have no intention of becoming one,” Sanders wrote in a letter to an academic as mayor of Burlington in 1988.

There is video of Karen Finney discussing the debate debate and negative campaigning in that article as well.  No that is not a typo.  The camps are debating about the next debate.

It has been quite a week!  The YUUUGEST collective Democratic gasp escaped when the Republican front-runner said women should be punished for seeking abortions. More shockingly (if possible), he went on to assert that the male partner should not be held accountable.

Hillary Clinton fired back.

The worst lesson we learned from this segment is that Trump must have cut school the day they taught separation of powers.  The guy running for CEO of the executive branch of the most important and powerful government on the planet has no idea who legislates or exactly what the judicial branch does.  Listen to him here.

In a damage control effort, the campaign threw water on a grease fire.

His spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, said Trump meant that abortion laws won’t change until he’s president. “Then he will change the law through his judicial appointments and allow the states to protect the unborn,” she said.

If ever there was a moment for Democrats to assess the gravity of the 2016 election, now is the time.

Not only is the White House at stake, and the Supreme Court (as Hillary has eloquently asserted), but we need to break up the legislative gridlock.  The best way to do that is to elect Hillary Clinton our nominee.  She has the better chance of bringing down-ticket Dems into Congress on her coattails. She is also the only one committed to raising funds for down-ticket Dems as Bernie Sanders told Rachel Maddow this week that he has not decided to do so.  He said “We’ll see.”

(On a side note, has anybody noticed the similarities between Bernie’s rhetoric and Trump’s?  While “I don’t know” and “We don’t know” dominate Trump’s verbiage to the point that his supporter who punched and then threatened to kill a protester parroted those words,  there is also a heavy dose of “We’ll see” and “We have to see” in there.  Bernie uses the same dodges.)

We need all three branches working together.  We have an advantage among Democrats since Hillary has a strong history of working across the aisle and of getting things done, and her endorsements by Super Delegates speak for themselves.

On Hillary’s side of the fence, the campaign came home to New York , and the Sanders camp, out of the box, demanded a New York debate and then pretended Hillary didn’t want to debate him there.

So much for that one.

When you have a singularly qualified, experienced, and prepared candidate running a campaign filled with policy speeches, you would expect the media to notice the positions the candidate is taking on the issues and the rationale behind each position.

Since Hillary so overwhelms the media with her flowing stream of policies (two major policy speeches¹ this week while the others simply stump), they appear to have chosen to focus exclusively upon the briefest and least representative moments in her day and amplify them.

 ¹ Major policy speeches this week: the SCOTUS speech and yesterday’s “Make it in America” speech at Syracuse University.

Hillary’s loyal neighbors in Chappaqua take exception to this unfortunate habit.

How Some Coverage of Hillary Clinton Lacks Basic Respect

By Bobbi M. Bittker

I realized there was a problem when my husband said, ‘how was your rally? I heard on the news Bernie supporters interrupted it.’ What? That’s what was reported?! Read on…

Commentary on yesterday’s Hillary rally at SUNY Purchase from someone who was actually there:

Why am I reading myriad articles reporting on the 40 minute speech with headlines, ‘Hillary Clinton rally interrupted by 20 Bernie supporters’ as if this is THE story? It’s not even A story.

In Madison WI after delivering her SCOTUS speech, we saw Hillary do a little shopping. (Oh yeah!  The other Hillary scandal this week was that while home in NY she stopped off at Bergdorf’s for a really nice cut by master hair designer,  John Barrettwhom she has visited in the past.)

When this photo was taken, Hillary had a clear rationale and plan for the necklace.  She knew where she was going and why she needed this piece.

Syracuse fans, down to the tiniest, appreciated the team spirit.

A behind-the-scenes look at March on the campaign trail with Hillary Clinton

The busiest month of the Democratic primary (so far), in photos

Historian, blogger, friend of Hillary and pal of her late mom Dorothy, Carl Anthony offered this gem to begin April.  Here’s a little teaser.

Hollywood For Trump Committee Announced Today

In seeking a response to the news, the national media caught up with the leading Democratic presidential candidate in New York, where she is spending three hours delivering speeches on foreign trade, gender equality protection, ensuring voting rights, climate change regulations, the prime lending rate, education investment, and encapsulation her eleven straight hours of congressional testimony of four months ago in ten minutes, an appearance which led Trump to characterize her as “lacking stamina.”

In her statement about the Hollywood for Trump Committee announcement, Hillary Clinton simply remarked, “Another cultural watershed.”

So!  It has been quite a week as we gear up for Wisconsin, Wyoming, and the big one in New York.

Here’s a little of what’s ahead: Hillary will appear Tuesday April 5th at 11am on The View, and at 8pm that night, when the Wisconsin projections get suspenseful and your nerves can’t take it, she will join Black Girls Rock on BET.

Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance Friday at the taping of Black Entertainment Television’s “Black Girls Rock” show in Newark, New Jersey.
