Good read on Huffington Blog ...

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/peter-d-rosenstein/bernie-manages-to-turn-a_b_10796228.html

The end to Bernie’s campaign is likely the best example of turning a win into a loss I have ever seen. Some are calling it an extreme case of ‘white privilege‘ and sexism.

Lauren Rankin writes “If Bernie Sanders is such a progressive revolutionary, why does he insist on undermining an eminently qualified female presidential candidate who can beat a fascistic demagogue?” She goes on to write “Moving the Democratic platform to the left is a laudable goal, but it isn’t one that he alone has led. There have been many movements, including the movement to end the Hyde Amendment, the “Fight for 15,” and the #BlackLivesMatter movement, that have pushed the Democratic Party to the left. But Bernie Sanders is presenting it as if he himself is the leader of this progressive revolution, as if he and his candidacy have been doing all of the work. This is privileged ignorance at best, and sinister appropriation at worst. Sanders has constructed himself as the progressive revolutionary savior that we have all been waiting for, a privileged and entitled point of view if there ever was one. He is unwilling to stop mansplaining to the country that he’s right because either he believes so deeply that he is right and we are wrong or does he sense that this is the one time that he will ever be this relevant to American politics and his male ego is unwilling to let this go?” I go with the last explanation.

Hillary Clinton is probably the most prepared person to ever run for President. She is brilliant and hardworking. She has worked for The Children’s Defense Fund and a Congressional Committee. Been recognized as one of the top 100 lawyers in the country; was First Lady of Arkansas; First Lady of the United States; two-term Senator from New York; and Secretary of State.

For twenty-five years Republicans have attacked her and spent over a billion dollars of their and the governments money trying to prove Hillary is evil and dishonest without ever proving anything. Yet the attacks have left their mark and a majority today wrongly see her as dishonest and untrustworthy. Still Clinton leads Trump by more than two-to-one when people are asked who is more prepared to be President.

1. I think the author is being too kind to that person...

But I generally agree with his (the blog author Rosenstein) perspective.

3. The comments are childish, stupid and laughable.

History and reason have passed these people by. All they have left is to wallow in their collective misery and berate the rest of the world for not being as smart as they imagine themselves to be.

Let's be clear: the self-obsessed navel gazing, sense of entitlement and infallibility flows directly from the candidate they supported.

Pathetic.

4. HuffPo is dead to me. When their one author, Seth Abramson, came out and admitted writing lies

 

in an effort to boost the Sanders "revolution," I stopped reading anything HuffPo puts out. It's bad enough they don't pay their writers, but then to see them openly manipulated by shucksters like Abramson and HA Goodman? That was the last straw for me.
