The Line Forms On The Left...

Meanwhile, here on the Left, things are much more quite and calm between the Leading Candidates. It's nice to see they are operating parallel campaigns, that when heard with the right ears, sounds more like a dialogue with the Nation, instead of the octagon deathmatch being staged by the Right.

Ted McLaughlin at Jobsanger, leads it off with an article detailing Hillary Clinton's undeniable lead in the polls.

Greg Laden brings us Hillary finally coming out against the Keystone XL Pipeline, and her rationale.

Dave Johnson, of Seeing The Forest, is wondering why there are still no Democratic debates.

And finally, Evan Minsker, at Pitchfork, brings us a letter from several well-known, and seemingly disparate, Musicians endorsing Bernie Sanders.

Round up by Monkeyfister (@Monkeyfister1 at Twitter). Send tips to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com with “For MBRU” in the subject line.
