Subject: VPOTUS pool report 5 - a little more color from the sidelines of the parade
Amidst the Joe Biden love, there were quite a few homemade, DIY Bernie Sanders signs along he parade route. Here's a few:
"But [picture of an eyeball]'m for Bernie"
"Love you Joe but I'm voting for Bernie"
"Corporatism is NOT democracy! Everyone gets to vote!! Bernie 2016!"
Meanwhile, your pooler saw ZERO Clinton signs. One of the local pooler a says he saw a local councilwoman or something wearing a Clinton button on her shirt, but pooler did not catch that. Nobody in the pool saw a single Clinton sign though, DIY or otherwise. And there were no official Bernie signs visible either -- all DIY.
Now inside United Steelworkers HQ waiting for to go into event. We're waiting in a kitchens-area, and judging by the empty boxes of refreshing canned beverages the attendees are presumably being served, USW HQ people seem to prefer Miller and Budweiser to other beers. (And Pepsi brands to Coca-Cola. But there's other nonalcoholic stuff too.)
More info on the USW event in the next pool report.
