42. That is another reason to stay out of it.

Maybe in another 4 or five years we will be able to discuss the -18 election debacle rationally. Until then there is just too many looking for a fight, not a discussion. Personally I think they made a good choice, but then it's really none of my business and criticizeing is just carping. It was their choice, not mine. I think the reason was to draw more attention and support for progressives and younger people, who lean toward Bernie. We really need to quit looking back and look forward. I do know if we keep doing the same thing we will get the same results. One lesson that should have been learned a long time ago is that many voters do not vote rationally. If you can't appeal to emotion you are going to lose. This applies to all elections In the age aof media sound bites and blathering talking heads. The message has to be able to rise above the noise.
