Clint, thanks for sharing your views. While I have heard stories that Sanders can be abrasive, I think that Hillary Clinton upstages him in that arena rather well. I note your article in apparent support of Hillary Clinton, which I find ironic since she is someone who has had a reputation for (at least in private) expressing intense rage with a potty mouth in tow.
Sanders voted against both Iraq wars. Hillary voted for one and has been quoted to say that she regrets that vote. You know, war is just a politically acceptable way to abuse other people. And when Hillary talked about Quadafi, “We came, we saw, he died,” well, that seems abusive and spiteful, too, but I suppose you still support her after all that.
You know, Hillary has never said that there will be no reforms before we reform campaign finance. That is something Bernie said, candidly, in a nationally televised debate with Hillary. I don’t recall that Hillary concurred with Bernie on that point. That’s one reason I supported Bernie and still do.
So if you don’t like Bernie Sanders, go ahead and vote for someone who suits your taste. We live in a democracy and I didn’t expect to change your mind or for you to think like me with my article. I just wanted to express my opinion and I did.
