    If they keep endorsing and promoting the Mary Queen of Goldman Sachs over Bernie Sanders than they will lose the Presidential election. The democrats better wake upicon_exclaim.gif

    In all fairness, Clinton has been subjected to massively rigorous public scrutiny since her husband took office many years ago, so her unfavorable numbers are cumulative. Indeed, the fact that she's survived years of microscopic examination is quite impressive. She's not perfect, but she's a known quantity. If we're all honest, we'd admit that none or very few of us on this site would survive the type of scrutiny to which Clinton has been subjected. The concern with Sanders is that he's never been subjected to the kind of rigorous and persistent scrutiny to which Clinton has been through. Thus, Sanders would pose more question and uncertainty if he were to become the Democratic presidential nominee. I'm not sure that long-term, loyal Democrats who truly care about the future of the Democratic Party and its platform would choose uncertainty over certainty, regardless of the seeming popularity of Sanders' ideas amongst the millennials.

    If the democrats had any common sense, they would dump Hillary and embrace Bernie because he is a genuine progressive leader who cares about the American people whereas Hillary only cares about Wall Street and her own self aggrandizement. In this case, uncertainty is a much safer bet for the democrats.
