21. :) Agree completely. Sanders has been an irritating gadfly

 

all his life. Not one person who knew him would endorse him when he first ran, and closer scrutiny should inevitably make more voters understand why.

It's not that I'm full of sympathy for his...base. The Republicans they helped elect, and will do again, keep my own anger and contempt stoked. But they seem to imagine a nation without anything to believe in, where all is corruption and betrayal except the one losing little leader they cling to, no other having arisen. The angry posts I read the other day were full of despair even as they expressed hope that it'll be different this time. But it's their nature that they are doomed to lose every election without understanding the real reasons; no matter who wins, their world remains ugly and scary.

There's so much good and ability to create good in our party, a light that should draw them, but lacking a good leader who could take them by the hand and lead them to it, it doesn't exist for them. The leaders who come looking for them make sure of that.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
