I'm fine that the person out front is helping awake America to the reality that "We are in a battle for America's soul!" That IS the giant, existential issue of our times.

And I'm happy that Sanders would get no delegates to act out inside the convention hall, shouting angry, hostile chants against whoever our nominee eventually turns out to be. I'm sorry he polled better on this one than Warren, but that means there's room for her to move up as smart people learn more about her.

"America is an idea. An idea stronger than any army, bigger than any ocean, more powerful than any dictator or tyrant. It gives hope to the most desperate people on earth….

The American creed – that we are all created equal –was written long-ago. But the genius of every generation of Americans has opened it wider and wider and wider, to include those who have been excluded in a previous generation. That’s why it has never gathered dust in the history books." ~ the current Democratic frontrunner

We're doing good.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
