dumbshits vote too.
I dont think you should be pushing this dumbshit bait, but you are obviously free to do what you want to do. You obviously have an agenda, and to your credit, you've been quite transparent of it. If Pete emerges as the nominee, will you vocally support him?

i don't know for sure, he'd have 6 months or so to woo me, and obviously i'm basically in ideological agreement with him, but i doubt it.

it's not.  my vote is irrelevant in determining who wins.  a bunch of dumbasses in the upper midwest who hate everyone with a whiff of corporate overlordness about them have a pretty big impact, otoh.

You mean the voters who ushered in Baron Von Trump? Just saying, lack of enthusiasm for Hillarry pilloried (lol) her campaign, and now we have Trump. I'm disappointed to hear you say you'd rather not vote than vote for Pete v. Trump.

The "dumbshit bait" is available to be pushed because Pete is being secretive about it. The problem is that he's inconsistent. He isn't quiet about any other job he had. He's not treating this issue as if it's no big deal. Your reaction to people being curious about this definitely speaks to an agenda.

All democratic candidates should be 100% transparent about everything inquired about. Without the transparency you lose a weapon against the cheeto.

Lying [redacted]. That's a giant rough ridin' whopper to kick start the campaign. Does he think the electorate is entirely comprised of eight year olds that can't remember his time as mayor?

So is the expectation Pete gets the NDA shredded by McKinsey or that he just breaks it unilaterally?

Would he owe McKinsey a favor for agreeing to break the NDA :horrorsurprise: (sarcasm)

Know some McKinsey guys.  I called them out for being shadowy just now.  They all lol'd at me and now I feel bad.

Worked on a project with McKinsey on one side and Accenture on the other. The McKinsey side seemed a lot more competent IYAM.

Interesting, elaborate, because I have no idea what "knowing what McKinsey does" have anything to do with them giving this particular person an NDA and having an issue with him breaking it because he's running for president.

I, frankly, don't give a crap about this. I'm amused however, by some of you talking out of both sides of your mouths. I don't know anything about McKinsey, but "lol he was an entry level employee for an everyman employer," is literally the most nonsensical argument for keeping a NDA disclosed I've ever heard. It actually takes a unique cognitive dissonance to think that makes any sense at all.

I would think that in this instance the NDA relates to client information.  Including identity of clients. 

I'm sure he had access to some proprietary information about their processes also.

i'm sure they do a lot of crap, but the electorally significant part is that they (afaik) often recommend that their client fire a bunch of people.

McKinsey provides all sorts of support for businesses, and in a lot of those instances their clients prefer those projects not be publicized. It’s profitable for McKinsey to assure their clients that employees aren’t going to blab about all the stuff they’re asked to help with.

As far as I know, there is zero reason for McKinsey to make an exception for (right now) probably their highest profile alum.

It’s a strange call for transparency because you’re asking for insight into McKinsey’s clients moreso than Pete himself. Its like calling for a Harris to turn over the files for all the cases she handled as a prosecutor.
