A glimmer of hope amidst all this BoB nonsense...(Bernie or Bust)

I see a friend from childhood out of the blue who I have not talked to in years, has been and is a right winger (very uninformed, very right wing) and he says to me:

"After all these years, we might be on the same side!"

I picked my jaw up from the floor, and he started going on about what a misogynistic pig asshole Drumpf is.

Then I brought up Bernie and he says "he seems to be the only sincere one"



I then asked him if he could vote for Hillary if he had to, he said he could.

FLOORED me.

You didn't have to tell us you asked him if he would vote for Hillary. You do it here all day every day. That's why I laughed. And please don't use foul language at me.
