12. I guess it is a matter of definition
What you call "realistic" I call "jaded". IMHO the rightwing and allied media have beaten you.

When you say that a candidate like DK, who has so much to offer the country, has no chance, that is jaded, defeatist, and cynical.

If we all felt that way the shrub would be assured of another 4 years, followed by 8 of Jeb, followed by 8 of (put name here).

With all due respect, I wholeheartedly disagree with your thinking.

I am thankful that hope and dreams of a better world are very much alive in a good percentage of Americans.

My prediction, the American public WILL vote in numbers that reverse the trend of the past several elections.

They WILL elect the Democratic nominee, and yes, given the chance, they would elect DK. He is a breath of fresh air in our fucked up world. He alone has put forth a platform that is geared towards improving the lives of everyone. He alone is standing against the "same old, same old' that is a direct cause of the shrinking % of eligible voters actually voting.

No amount of negativity from you or anyone will change my mind, nor change the minds of most DK supporters, we know the man, and we have experienced the hope and promise his candidacy embodies.
