Bernie lost his moment

Presidential candidates have had moments that have defined their campaigns ... Obama when he talked about reverend white and race, JFK when he spoke about Catholicism to Texas southern Baptists, GHW Bush with the vision thing (and checking his watch), Clinton on 60minutes (ďI have caused pain in my marriageĒ). Bernieís 60 minutes interview was a lost moment. Things began to turn there. Itís not the academic point he made about Castro; it was the academic manner in which he made his point about Castro. A little less detachment, a little more feeling. When Bernie talks from the heart, itís effective. When he screams about oligarchs and brushes off totalitarianism, he steps away from most Americans. I donít know just how he could have reeled us in, but that was his moment. He might not get another one.

3. "Real" empathy trumps anger every single time.

 

Carter, Clinton, Obama, Biden - all have this in common --- they "connect" with empathy.

4. Bernie should drop out tonight and support Joe

 

for the sake of the universe. He was wrong, he couldnít get the biggest turnout in history behind him. He did worse than in 2016. If we unite now, we will destroy not just trump but the entire GOP. Once in a lifetime opportunity.

11. I don't expect him to

 

do the right thing, in his speech he was still attacking Biden instead of making the case against trump. He will never give up and will continue to stir chaos.

10. Bernie is correct about what America should be

 

But we didnít get here overnight, it has been a 40 year reversal of fortune. Bernie canít change it without all of the Democratic Party behind him and he alienated them in a vindictive manner.
We should start working our way to single payer healthcare and free community college, but it would be a culture shock to try it all at once and Then We lose all that we gained.

12. I agree 100%

 

And the country will come around to it, if you do not vote in a republican majority in any of the congress or president. Keep the dems for awhile and it will be done.

20. Yes

 

you hit the nail on the head. Bernie really lost his opportunity, he's way too scripted and can't seem to go with the moment.

22. Not really. The Democratic vote was split in five. Sanders isn't going to get a lot from anyone

 

dropping out. Biden does. Reality has always been that establishment Dem Sanders complains about is much larger than his support.
