Cleaning House. Can everone agree that the heart/mind thing is misleading?

I thought I had heard the end of this, but it cropped up again. Now that the stats are in that Sanders supporters are on average 'higher education' voters, and so would be categorized (in this totally fabricated heart/mind dichotomy) as Mind, and Hillary supporters are more likely to have chosen their candidate before any of the information was in, which would categorize them in the uncritical Heart category, can we agree that this strategy is an insult to anyone paying attention?

Okay, if you insist, I offer you this, from somewhere between '65 (19 yr. Hillary) to as late as '68 Hillary (22 yrs. old): " In a letter to her youth minister at this time, she described herself as "a mind conservative and a heart liberal"

There are some who believe it is more expedient to change things from the inside. That works if you are a Borgia or Machiavelli - or just plain scared or unimaginative. Normal - no worries - brush off the flies - do your best but don't stick your neck out.

I would like to think Hillary is the latter of these two (I'm sure there are more scenarios and look forward to hearing about them).

In the latter case, I see no argument for mind. It is all heart - fear and security.

Edit - lost track - THE POINT IS - Both candidates are both and the Democratic party is lucky to have them. Intelligent and caring, both in their own rights
