Who got the vote first? Who got the Presidency first. Privilege of white as we walk in the world. Nt seabeyond Jul 2016 #13

Excellent post. Nt seabeyond Jul 2016 #20
this was seriously not to prove a "winner" RazBerryBeret Jul 2016 #21
And yet it is structured so that the responder must pick a "winner." Perhaps the problem is Squinch Jul 2016 #25
OK, I understand, but I still think it's too hard to choose one over the other. athena Jul 2016 #27

It's great to finally be able to agree with a Bernie supporter on something! athena Jul 2016 #29
