13. I'm not sure I agree, actually.

 

What I remember is a lot of people pledging to support and vote for the nominee. They were also asking others to do the same. Some could not bring themselves to do that, unfortunately.

Every presidential election year involves the same process, which leads to a convention that votes for the Democratic nominee, based on the votes of everyone who participated in the primary election process. In November the nominee of one of two political parties will get elected as President. The more people who turn out to vote for the Democratic nominee, the better that nominee's chances are, regardless of other factors that influence the election.

Our nominee lost by less than 90,000 votes in three states. Had we gotten 91,000 to turn out in those states to vote for the Democratic nominee, we'd be looking at a different set of problems right now.

That's what's at stake in this. That rises above all other considerations, or should.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
