The GOP will try to push Sanders to get the nomination, wont happen but he would be

The GOP best road to victory. They will hold the Swift Boating until the nominee is determined. If some here thinks there have been attacks on Sanders, in fact they have not begun.

He has stated he would take another look at a "complicated" bill.

He is getting back from his conservative position.

In eight years in Congress, Hillary sponsored 417 bills, had 11 of those

Bills enacted. Pretty consistant work.

I get it, a president is not a one issue. Never was and never will be.

If President Clinton says Hillary Clinton would make a great president then I believe him.

In 1968 Eugene McCarthy, Democrat, was running in the DNC Primary, he filled Fenway Park with

65,000 people.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_Party_presidential_primaries,_1968

Only Senator Eugene McCarthy of Minnesota proved willing to openly challenge Johnson. Running as an anti-war candidate in the New Hampshire primary, McCarthy hoped to pressure the Democrats into publicly opposing the Vietnam War. Normally, an incumbent president faces little formidable opposition within his own party. However, McCarthy, although he was trailing badly in the national polls, decided to pour most of his resources into New Hampshire, the first state to hold a primary election. He was boosted by thousands of young college students, who shaved their beards and cut their hair to be "Clean for Gene." These students rang doorbells and worked hard in New Hampshire for McCarthy. On March 12, McCarthy won 42% of the primary vote to Johnson's 49%, an extremely strong showing for such a challenger, and one which gave McCarthy's campaign legitimacy and momentum. Senator Kennedy announced his candidacy four days later, on March 16.

The second faction, which rallied behind Senator McCarthy, was composed of students and intellectuals who had been the early activists against the war in Vietnam; they perceived themselves as the future of the Democratic Party.

Senator McCarthy had the largest crowds and he did not win the nomination.

Our criminal justice system is out of balance. (Hillary Clinton Group)

“I will never stop working on issues of equality and opportunity, race, and justice. That is a promise. I’ve done it my entire adult life. I will always be in your corner.” Hillary Clinton July 31, 2015

Our criminal justice system is out of balance. Although the United States has less than 5 percent of the world’s population, we have almost 25 percent of the total prison population. A significant percentage of the more than 2 million Americans incarcerated today are low-level, nonviolent offenders. African American men are far more likely to be stopped and searched by police, charged with crimes, and sentenced to longer prison terms. There are an estimated 1.5 million black men who are missing from their families and communities because of incarceration and premature death.

In order to reform our criminal justice system, we need to recognize some hard truths about race in America. From Ferguson to Staten Island to Baltimore, Hillary has said the patterns are unmistakable and undeniable: The tragic deaths of Michael Brown, Walter Scott, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, and Freddie Gray are a reminder of the need to address race in America, reform our criminal justice system, and move the nation forward.
