Within a few months, starting in single-digits nationally, Bernie has virtually tied one,
won one, and narrowly lost one by 6%.

Nope. No revolution here.

Such as Clinton supporters participating in the caucuses without registering, etc., etc.

Funny how it appears Clinton people are actually doing what they accused Obama of in 2008 in the caucuses.

8. Looks like we are stuck with Hillary Clinton

No economic reform, little if any environmental reform, continued international aggression. Assuming she can beat Trump, which, well, right now looks like it might be difficult.

Oh well, I guess we are stuck with the status quo - amazing that so many people here are enthused by that.

30. Well after the Clinton's first turn in the White House they successfully turned the party right

Are you unfamiliar with this? Among other things, they made it very clear that they were on white people's side, that they weren't going to be aggressive on racial issues - and of course they weren't. They committed to mass incarceration of black people and they "reformed" welfare. And they were very successful; giving them and their allies control over the Democratic party. In such a context it's not surprising that Sanders hasn't been able to move the needle very much.

This year is different though; the liberal elements of the party are waking up and challenging the status quo - I gather you think it would be better if Hillary Clinton had been able to run unopposed, given your complete disdain for Sanders and his supporters, but if she sounds like a liberal right now it's only because she's had to face a principled opponent who is arguing for actual left wing policies, instead of the watered down liberalism of the Clintons.

90. That's not your argument; or at least not the argument you are making now

The argument you are making now is that Clinton is more powerful politically (because she's moved to the left and cozied up to the monied interests) and so is more likely to get her agenda passed.

12. Hillary's biggest lead was when she announced her candidacy.

It's been downHill ever since while Bernie's trajectory is climbing.

"Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts."

Let's see what happens after a lot of people get a chance to vote in primaries.

Sanders may very well not be able to make it out of Super Tuesday. Or he may. Texas may be the big cheese in terms of delegates. Lots of time to see what happens.

23. People working multiple jobs to put food on the table

and pay the bills might be too exhausted to be in the front lines. But if you are stupid enough to believe they aren't paying attention and are indifferent, the mistake is yours.

It might not be this election cycle, but I believe the shit will hit the fan in the not too distant future.

25. Bullshit. They "liked" the Sanders facebook page.

 

They have voted in online after online poll and you have the nerve to say they didn't show up.

One camp is redefining every aspect of politics this cycle. It's now time to redefine enthusiasm.

I so wish one of our current candidates brought out the enthusiasm, extreme ground game, and flat out brilliance of the Obama campaign. I figure Clinton has two and a half out of the three.

Happy Monday bravenak!!!

136. How much energy is the average voter going to invest in an abstract,

pie in sky vision? The lure of free stuff is always a surefire attention getter and it'll fill up a stadium here and there. So will national prayer crusades which promise first class seats inside the pearly gates.

In each case, enthusiastic crowds gather, already predisposed to be mesmerized by the sermon. Results vary as to the lasting impact of the preacher's message after the faithful return to their everyday routine.

107. of course....but if Bernie is at 52% next month and 57% the following month

 

you can't argue that there is no revolution, and the superdelegates won't go against that kind of popular support.

People keep claiming that Bernie has reached a ceiling....and keep writing him off. But as he keeps travelling from state to state, more and more people are connecting.
