I agree he speaks from the heart. However, he is wrong on many issues. If the auto industry had failed, for example, do you know how many jobs would have been lost? I'm not only talking about 4 million auto jobs, but small businesses like the people who install aftermarket products, i.e., audio systems and sunroofs.

Also, I would agree with Sanders if he said "When you're White you don't know what it's like to be Black." But he didn't say that at all. He indicated that there aren't any poor White people. Is he saying all Black people are poor and all White people are rich? If that's true, where are my millions? Oprah, please send me some money!

He also talked about living in the "ghetto" when asked about racial unrest. Is he saying all Black people are poor and all White people are rich? If that's true, where are my millions?

The bailout of the auto industry just ended up enriching by $millions those that hollowed out the industry to begin with. Just another example of how middle class money is transferred to the Billionaire Class. There were alternatives to saving the auto industry and at the same time wiping out the Billionaires who caused the catastrophe.

Can anybody really believe she would do well against Trump. I would find in interesting and quite funny if Cruz would preform an exorcism about half way into a debate with her. Just seeing her head spin while she talks out her a** would be worth a donation to the campaign. It gives me the Green Mile Flies image when I think about it.

But Clinton supported NAFTA, which is one of the principal reasons that caused auto industry jobs to be lost. She was wrong on the Iraq War, wrong on Bill Clinton's crime bill, she accepts money from for-profit prisons, and on and on. Clinton does not win on issues, unless you agree with her on all those things.

Sad and embarrassing...both are bad enough for even Trump to beat in the general election. Hill makes Trump look honest in comparison, Sanders makes him look sane.
You've got to be kidding me. A dose of crazy? A dose? Your crazy train de-railed miles back, where have you been? I am so happy that we have Bernie in our corner, the only candidate with a lick of common sense, who believes in honesty and integrity, something in short supply in politics today. Keep your freak show of Republican's, the Dem's will own the White house for another 8 years.
