    Twenty-four hours is a lifetime in politics, forty-eight hours is even longer. The sands under Sanders feet have shifted to such an extent that he seems to be a man without a country. Unfortunately for Sanders, like many politicians before him he ceased being able to read the room, what might have sold yesterday, today it can’t even be given away for free. Being able to see around corners is what makes a politician successful, not longevity, but vision and foresight. The one thing about Warren, Pete, Beto, and Amy is that they didn’t let their egos overrule their common sense. They can live to fight another day, perhaps in an even stronger and better position. Sometimes how you carry yourself in defeat makes all the difference in the world.

      💯%.
      A crusty old proclaimed Socialist in 2016, then aged 74yrs old, Bernie Sanders, refused to bow out when he knew darn well that his candidacy for the presidency was over. He talked about gracefully bowing out…but the $$ were pouring in, he got addicted to the Fame, Notoriety and the Power & after a day or 2, came out with the most vicious attacks on Hillary Clinton…further dividing the Left & the Dems. Now at 78yo, He knows that this is his last hooray and like an old cranky dog, he is Never going to let it go. He will cling to this fantasy of a REVOLUTION until the bitter end…Unfortunately.
      But I pray that Sanders will see the light…For Karma hates Ugliness.

      Something I’ve been seeing is that Sanders captured the youth vote. I think they’re idealistic being young and having grown up during 9/11, etc. They also have horrendous student loans, aside from them thinking Medicare 4 all will cure everything. I’ve read lots of articles about how Universal Healthcare is a much better solution, with credible analysis supporting it.

      Seems like they think Sanders will wave his magic wand, and everything will get better. It pissed me off that when Warren saw Medicare 4 all wasn’t such a good idea, she changed her view and laid out a pragmatic path to get there, while Sanders hasn’t explained anything. Points to the the misogyny at play.

      I think Biden’s campaign needs to bring the young vote in and address their concerns. Although would they listen? Thinking Biden is the “Establishment”.

      • March 7, 2020 at 1:30 pm

        folks talk about Sanders and the youth vote….however they did not come out to vote…unlike for Pres Obama….that youth wave did not appear for Sanders

        Most if not all of Bernie’s positions are “sugar highs” in that they are great going in but soon the body realizes that it doesn’t provide any nutritional value at all. As a candidate you can say free college and M4A all you want to but in the end you have to realistically show how you will get to free college and M4A. Bernie’s plan is to shame and browbeat politicians into voting for his plans, with these Republicans in office they can’t be shamed into doing the will of the people. I know for a fact that Biden’s plans can and will work
        because the Obama Administration proved that they can work.

          Yes, I agree Don; they’re sugar highs. But why oh why do the young voters buy his bull shit?! Both my sons voted for Sanders in the primary. Thank God I know they’re vote for Biden in the campaign (when he wins!).

              One youthful characteristic that I’ve observed is the expectation of immediate gratification. “Work smarter, not harder” is a mantra I often hear. For many, entitlement has taken the place of earning through hard work. (And that applies to many older people as well.) Sanders is able to attract many with the glitz and glitter. Labeling it a “revolution” adds to the attraction. I’m hoping that for many, the glitz will tarnish as reality comes into play and they come to realize how one dimensional and close-minded Sanders is. As they start asking the *hows*, many will come to understand that, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch,” is more than just a phrase.

          I went to rally for Gov Gavin Newsome when he was running in 2018. I’m so impressed with him. He talked to me a long time, even when his handlers were trying to move me on. We talked about the youth vote and why they vote the way they do. He really gave me some thoughtful answers and ignored his handlers and kept talking to me.

      He is desperate now. I saw David Sirota on Velshi this morning pushing that social security lie. Sanders disparaged Hillary also. I really hope V P Biden can end this before the convention.

    I dropped in to join the Obama Diary family that are celebrating Senator Harris’ endorsement of VP Joe.

    I am keeping my hopes, wishes and prayers up for this election primary process to be over with the result of a Biden nomination.

    I think we should focus on encouraging people to come out and vote so that they do not take anything for granted.

    There is a lot of toxicity on the anti-Joe side, this primary needs to end without more damage being done to the potential nominee.

    Have read about the Rev’s endorsement of BS that will happen today in MI.

    For some reason, I just had a flush back about how that Rev was initially so hostile to PBO.

    I am going to leave it at that …

    Sounds to me like Bernie is grasping.
    Enough with the constant ‘establishment’ bashing already. To me you are trying to poison the minds of Americans which means PP winning in Nov.

    Give it up Bernie.
    Perhaps work with the Biden Administration to adopt some of your ideas -even if it’s only partially and go from there.
