32. When I see her actually...

... "Going Big," perhaps starting with the announcement that she stands with the heroes fighting to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline, then I'll say, 'Great, perhaps she's starting to get it."

If she does something REAL to end mass incarceration -- vow to pardon all those who are imprisoned for possessing drugs in a quantity that is obviously for personal use; pardon all those ever convicted of such a crime -- then I'll say "Great, she's starting to get it."

Or if she calls on every state to restore voting rights to felons, and shames them with the horrible reality reflected in the numbers being denied the right to vote in a so-called Democracy, then I'll applaud.

So far, she remains dedicated to the principle of preemptive surrender. Instead of starting from a point of what we REALLY need, and relentlessly making the case for that to the American people, she starts from a point of what she thinks "they" will give us.

Is she capable of seeing the light?

Of course. I must believe that or I wouldn't be able to keep working for transformational change.

She must be elected, not just to stop Trump, but on the slim chance that we will be able to "get through" to her and the so-called "Democratic Leadership."

Has she seen the light?

No way.
