The teachers union gave the nod to Hillary, yes?

I'm in a very small, weak union with no political aspirations. We can't even agree on lunch.

That's interesting. I can sort of see why they went that way; he's got some pretty good momentum going, and and Hillary...well, seems like her time has come and gone.

I like this Sanders, even though he's a leftist. He seems honest and an Independent. I may vote for him, even if I disagree with some of his socialist leanings.

Me too, but it seems foregone that Hillary will get the Democratic nod.

At least by Hillary...

Regardless of what Hillary thinks there will be those who will vote for her because she is a woman and it's the PC thing to do. That's how Obama got in-the majority of AA voted for him because of his skin color. We live in a country where qualifications and lack of them mean nothing. It's about being PC and being able to brag that you helped put the first AA or woman in office as the first woman or AA president. And also being behind a person that represent your skin color or gender.

I voted for him and I'm white, and a woman.

Same here. Also I can't believe I'm this excited about an old white guy running for office, but go Bernie!

LOL.

Well, most if them *are* old white guys.

Yes, black people only voted for the democratic candidate for president because he happened to black, because otherwise black people always vote republican?

Ted Cruz or Ben Carson....all the way :)

Nope, I don't agree with this at all.

Well, maybe the part about "qualifications and lack of them mean nothing". I think I could come up with a few candidate names that seem to be woefully lacking in qualifications to be POTUS yet they enjoy popularity within their political party.

Would you have felt the same way if Sarah Palin had become the first female VP? If McCain had won and then been too ill to govern or even died in office, would she have been qualified to become president?

^^^ That was the ultimate nightmare back in 2008. Now the new nightmare stars President Trump mouthing off and getting us all nuked. :bitingnails:

But he's so "refreshing"!

I, for one, cannot figure out what is "refreshing" about rude, inconsiderate, and inflammatory speech from a man who wants to be POTUS.

Senator Bernie Sanders (I) has been smoking his opponents for the House and then the Senate for over twenty years. He is seeking the Democratic nomination and with the right running mate he could do it again.

One top tier issue is immigration reform. Sen Sanders has voiced his opposition to the import of non citizens in vast numbers to the point that wages are suppressed for American Workers. I am actually looking forward to the debates on this complex issue and USvforeign policy.

I am a registered independent voter and Minnesota does not allow open primaries. I'm half tempted to change my affiliation to Democrat so I can vote for Bernie Sanders in the primaries.
