Clinton supporters cannot see why Trump can easily take them down, fighting dirty will never beat Trump. They think dirty tricks and triangulation tactics are strengths.

They are not.

Edited to add: if they think that co-opting Trump will work, good luck. Even if they manage it, they will lose even more liberals and progressives. They cannot keep their base and co-opt Trump.

It's possible that Trump, should he become president, would be easy to control within the beltway environment (government is not a business and Mr. Thin Skin is transparently insecure).

The possibly bi-partisan oligarchy will either go down with him, or lose. You can't beat someone with no conscience, not by the usual tactics. I strongly believe Bernie is our only chance.

They need us and we know better.
