Bernie Sanders has not been vetted. Not a single hard negative ad has ever been run against him.

That's why he polls so well against the Republicans. At one point in 1988, Mike Dukakis was out-polling George H.W. Bush, and then they started in on him.

Conversely, Hillary has been vetted since 1992.

Why are polls showing Bernie doing well a good thing but the actual votes and delegates

including the Super delegates where Hillary is leading a bad thing?

President Obama was right to continue his Cuba trip

Dropping everything to respond to every terrorist attack sends the wrong message to the terrorists. What they want is to control our behavior and actions through mass violence. Ending a historic event enables and encourages them to do more of it.

ESPN tried to shame Cuba's slums, but tweeters highlighted US sports dystopia




When Bernie endorses Hillary at the convetion and some of his supporters are still fighting

or voting for a 3rd party, then you know it's about their ego and them. It was never about Bernie nor the country nor the future. It was all about their need for ego gratification and their sense of entitlement.

Your vote in the General Election should be based on who's better for your fellow American, not you.

You should vote your conscience in the primaries, but when it comes to the General Election, your vote should be based on who, in the best position to win the presidency, would govern best for your fellow Americans, particularly those at the margins, the elderly, the poor, our service men and women, the undocumented, racial and ethnic minorities, the GBLT, the working class, etc.

What you want individually should not matter. What you expect should not matter. Why? A President Gore would not abandon New Orleans in 2005. A President Gore would not have been asleep at the switch before 9/11. A President Gore would not have invaded Iraq. A President Gore would not have used bigotry on marriage equality to win OH.

The lives of people here in the U.S. and abroad are at stake here. Your vote or non-vote is literally life or death.

What is the difference between a pickpocket and a peeping tom?

If you think that you can win the Dem nomination by insulting African Americans then....

you're not going to be the nominee. Also, you're not going to be able to form ANY sort of progressive revolution without us.

The tone deafness to the voices of African Americans speaks volumes about a particular campaign and its supporters.

--On Edit---

As an example of insulting African American primary voters:


Can we please respect the Democratic party voters?

We've had multiple debates in multiple formats. We've had primaries and caucuses in most regions of the U.S., and the voters are expressing their choices. The primaries have been fair to all participants. The results speak for themselves.

Here are the popular vote tallies so far:

Clinton: 8,657,362
Sanders: 5,905,252

Clinton = +2,752,110
