I have never taken sanders seriously due to a complete lack of legislative accomplishments
Yes, this, exactly. Lots of empty promises. Pie in the sky. Fantasies that simply won't come true. We don't elect kings and queens. We don't elect dictators.

Smart voters (who live in the real world) understand these things. Intelligent voters know that real progress is incremental. Mature voters know that you don't always get what you want. Rational voters know that you can't bully your way into success and that you've got to find common ground and mutual interests with the opposition. Adult voters who have real world experience know all these things.

The candidate that I support will know all these things too and will be someone who has the temperament and demeanor to make me proud that he (or she) is our party's nominee.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
