Bernie's campaign

I'm a Hillary Supporter, but I'm actually glad that Bernie's running a strong campaign. I hope it will sharpen the Democratic focus on income inequality. It's really a systemic problem that will require lots of smart work to address. And Bernie has been SO the opposite of Trump in his "against the establishment" position. He's against the establishment because the establishment has let things slide into inequality. Trump is just boosting his mind-boggling ego.

I'm a Hillary supporter, but I look forward to a really historic speech from Bernie at the convention, and hopefully some serious impact on the platform.

While it's true in that there is a lot of Sanders support in the Pacific Northwest... I know with absolute certainty Hillary does also. I live breath and see it here everyday. Even in FAR left leaning Multnomah County. I'm looking forward to participating in these states however I can.
