The Stubbornness of Bernie Sanders
Posted July 2, 2016on:
Good Saturday afternoon Widdershins!
I just wanted to put up a quick post with some updates and some links to a couple of good articles. I hope you are having great weather wherever you are today. It is 96 ° here so I am sitting in my air-conditioned comfort.
Hillary Clinton was interviewed by the FBI about her use of a private email server as secretary of state, her campaign said Saturday, as federal investigators neared the end of the probe that has hung over her White House bid.
Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, gave a voluntary interview for 3 1/2 hours on Saturday morning at FBI Headquarters in Washington, her campaign said.
“She is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said. “Out of respect for the investigative process, she will not comment further on her interview.”Spokespeople for the FBI and the Justice Department declined to comment Saturday.
Here’s another excellent piece on how Bernie lost another competition: that would be the competition to capture the Democrats on the left side of the party.
Elizabeth Warren is the surrogate he was supposed to be. His supporters have become Clinton’s.
Warren certainly did energize that crowd when she and Hillary appeared together in Cincinnati.
Warren was a compelling surrogate, giving Clinton the kind of strong and affirmative endorsement she needs to win over skeptical voters. And Clinton, in turn, was energized, touting her policies and platform—and indicting Trump for his attitudes and behavior. It was a grand display of party unity: Warren and Clinton, the left and the center-left, united against a common foe and cheered on by thousands of excited Democrats, all ready for the general election.
It’s definitely a good read and shows how Sanders screwed up yet again.
Okay this was just a quick little post to steer y’all towards a couple of good reads. Feel free to add any comments you want to below…or continue enjoying your Independence weekend.
