CNN video. Bernie Sanders wonders if media will ignore him until he attacks Hillary Clinton.

His statement about the TPP is strong...says there must be a stand for or against, no fence sitting.



This appears to be his interview from today. He makes a good point when he wonders if the media will allow civil debate or if they are waiting for him to attack Hillary Clinton.

Great interview.

I like much of his message, particularly the part about us needing to he more like Scandanavian countries. But, he can't get is there as Prez (yes, that's just my opinion).

Hillary and Bernie will be dunking it out in due time. It's stupid for anyone to pretend like it won't happen.

The question is, who will be nasty, petty an personal. You can go negative and still be respectful. In fact, you cannot win if you don't go negative. Negative simply means distinguishing yourself from the opponent.

18. From CNN today...partial transcript and article.

He also said Clinton should take a position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive 12-country deal that President Barack Obama is pushing to the dismay of liberals.

"You can't be on the fence of this one," he said. "You're either for it or you're against it. No fence-sitting on this one."

Sanders said he personally likes Clinton. He said he's willing to challenger her on policy issues -- but that he hopes media will cover those differences without Sanders having to launch "reckless attacks."

"Are you in the media prepared to allow us to engage in that serious debate?" he said. "Or do I have to get media attention by simply making reckless attacks on Hillary Clinton or anybody else? I don't believe in that. I believe in serious debates on serious issues."

19. Bernie knows exactly what he is facing in the corporate media.



It is delightful to hear him calling out their MO. The way you fight corruption and manipulation is by making them explicit for people.

What he is doing is so important. He is re-teaching this nation what we have a right to expect from a representative political process, and pointing out how perversely ours has been corrupted.

REAL hope and change. We need Bernie in the White House.

I like Clinton too, but as he infers as a senator she did not do anything about these issues.

The great thing about Bernie is that he tries to
tell them to stick to the issues.
It is difficult now to tell the people that they are
supposed to lead the government and what
the government should be responsible for.

Unfortunately Reagan's detrimental put down
of government still is prevalent.
