with today's NBC/WSJ poll remember this [View all]

Bernie is doing better with little MSM coverage and no debates yet than Obama was at this point In 2007

Obama was 20 points behind in national polls.Bernie without Biden Is down by 17 if Biden gets in down by 7.

Bernie Is leading Hilary In NH and in some polls also leads In Iowa.At this point In 2007
Obama was behind In both.

For those worried about minority support what some forget It took winning In iowa to turn
blacks against Clinton.

I remember when after Hilary won NH In 2008 the Clinton Campgain said they were ahead everywhere else except Illinois.Bernie Is already ahead In Vermont,Oregon,Minnesota,and Utuh

Assuming Biden doesn't get In.Hilary had 75% of dems In june.it dropped to 59% In July and now is down to 53%.Bernie meanwhile has gone from 15% In june to 25% In july to now 38% without biden now.

Even though some clinton supports have hinted we are racist,despite some supporting Obama for nomination In 2007/2008,and sexiest,despite some of us prepared to support Elizabeth Warren if she would have won,things are moving quicker than I would have ever thought possible In our direction.

I feel we can hold our heads high.our guy fight for civil rights In 1960's and supported first serious Black candiate for president.While the other side used racial dog whistles In 2008
and dismissed South Carolina.and now thinks SC should matter more than Iowa and NH.
Some of us actully remember things.
