1. I'm a bit surprised by this

 

but it is very early. She's being cautious and considering all options, like many DUers.

11. Which is a good thing.

 

AOC seems to be a team player. Sure she's progressive and agitates all from that area, and that's fine. But she's quickly working in and with the Party. Which is more than I can say about Bernie who is a Democrat when it suits him and an independent when it doesn't.

Plus, Bernie is a step backward. We don't need another old white guy telling us what to do. There are so many amazing women and non-whites and young people, with the same stances as Bernie. We frankly don't need him. And I think AOC has realized this also.

40. Are you aware that Sen. Sanders picked Nina Turner as his campaign chair?

 

Any idea I had to maybe forgive and forget 2016 is now gone. I will vote for Sanders only if he is in a general. Nina Turner supported the Greens and Jill Stein during 16. She also said she was open to supporting non - Democratic candidates during her tenure at Our Revolution...very bad choice if you want support from Democrats.

see a former staffer attempt to make her out to be a petty woman.

We were swamped with “new members” pummeled Hillary on a daily basis and disappeared after the convention.

primary activity with Bernie won her any friends outside of the OR crowd. The folks she campaigned for mostly lost and she has to work with the winners now.

... headlines. All she did was refrain from endorsing ANYONE at this point. Someone put the specific Sanders question to her and got the answer they would have gotten with any candidate's name. Is there anything I can do to register my opinions with news.Youtube? What is that, anyway?????

There's no reason for her to declare her support for anyone at this point. Let's have a debate first, at least. Plenty of time for endorsements.

accomplishing many things with little to no recognition....never mind.

Here is sincerely hoping someone with this ENORMOUS amount of name recognition after ONE MONTH of holding office will propel her to greatness of achievements for all of us!

She helps pull off Medicare for All and climate change legislation and I will be her biggest supporter!
