3. I think so

I'm a Bernie supporter but I liked MOM and wish he had been given the chance to speak. I really knew nothing about him but what little I heard was good. I look forward to seeing him in the future.

4. Open Letter to Martin O'Malley

 

You sir ran a race of amazing grace!
What you may not know is how many Americans were silently behind you. Many of us truly admire your honesty, your intelligence and your courage!
You spoke up to both Democratic candidates regarding their voting history and you did so quietly but firmly and with great dignity.
Bernie Sanders did vote against the Brady Bill and Hillary did vote for the Iraq War. In addition, Hillary was a powerful voice for the invasion of Libya and the deposing of Gaddafi and and all the disaterous consequences that foreign policy decision has brought! Who else would have spoken up regarding these things?
You are right that Hillary has taken huge amounts of money from special interests like Saban and Wall Street et. al. You were right to be concerned about her emails. This may seem small and petty, but what if she is indicted after becoming the nominee?
My heart broke as I watched your wife cry and I got little tears too.
I just want you to know that many of us are fully aware that in the current abysmally corrupt world of politics, intrigue and being false is rewarded, while honesty seldom is.
I'm glad you ran Martin O'Malley because now I know there are people like you fearlessly representing the American people.
It was worth your sacrifice in order to inject even the smallest amount of honesty, integrity and dignity into the sordid political crapscape created by money, greed and relentless selfishness.
So please, don't feel bad about your efforts. Consider this, America just isn't ready for you. I think you would've given Troudeau in Canada a run for his money though!
You did your best and many of us are proud of you and would have been honored to call you Commander In Chief!
A Bernie Supporter
