To The Daily Sun,
Is this the best they can do? Hillary's minions in the Democratic (sic) Party leadership threaten to defy the New Hampshire voter by tilting all their super-delegate votes to Hillary. At best, super delegates should be entirely apportioned by percentage of the primary. But I am not surprised. It is precisely this "we know best" attitude that has caused them to collude with Republicans for years.
Democrats voted for the Iraq war, Democrats voted for the greatest defeat for poor people in 1990s, Democrats supported the Wall Street bailout and refuse to support controls for too-big-to-fail banks.
You say, "We didn't have the power." Well, you have given your power away drip by drip every time you gave up without a fight. Progressive Democrats support Bernie because he is leading the charge we have waited and waited and waited for. We wanted someone to stand up for our principles. Instead, the Democratic leadership just whines and says, "It's too hard. We shouldn't even try."
Well, I will be voting not just for Bernie this fall, but a whole new leadership at the state, federal and local level. It's not just about Bernie. It is because he is the first Democrat to come along to speak truth to power in a long time.
Jeanne, Maggie, Jay, you should be very afraid for your jobs. It is time to get some leadership with guts as
well as brains. And no, I am not young or even middle-aged. I am a proud senior.
