10. meh

...maybe Sanders shouldn't have lumped O'Malley in with Clinton in the last debate, ranting about Wall Street. I didn't get all butt-hurt about it. It's politics. It's bullshit, but I guess Sanders needed to try and dismiss O'Malley's progressive platform and his progressive achievements.

Sanders and his campaign aren't above misrepresenting his opponents record. Moreover, O'Malley has every right to reject 'socialism' as much as Sanders has to embrace the philosophy. He brought the issue into this campaign. Blaming other Democrats for distancing themselves from Sanders sketchy explanations for his made-up moniker is a weak defense.
