Bernie Sanders has significantly changed and reshaped the race for president and will leave it soon with the chance to make more of a difference in the Democratic Party in the months ahead.

Don't be so certain. Have you ever heard of the phrase, "hoisted by your own petard"? Well, Hillary may have that experience, along with some of her aiders and abettors. Justice might find it's way back onto the political scene and democracy may find itself reawakening in a very overgrown governmental garden of corruption. Thanks for this articles viewpoint, Carrie.

Bernie is the saving grace in the sicko American Electoral Politics scene and more people know the secret of the true financial tyranny of the 1% now. The debacle may end because of Bernie's efforts to inform....all across this poor used and abused country.

Promises can be made and then Obama's promise to get our people out of the Middle East. Now we are waging war in Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria. Our infrastructure is falling apart and Clinton will still advocate for America's War Machine getting trillions. Just because she's female, don't think she'll advocate for us.

Bernie is the only candidate to actually cares for We, the People and what we need.

Idealism is not always practical when electing our government. Once we have voiced our concerns and opinions, all we can do is hope that the 'Bernie Sander's' of the world will have the most possible influence.

It's unrealistic to ever believe that even our favorite candidate ~ if elected ~ will be able to do all we asked and he promised. Just like Obama. He did the best he could under the conditions and circumstances he had to deal with. Try to imagine yourself in the same situation. You can't because cannot EVER see the entire picture. You have to be there.

I will vote for Hillary because Bernie lost the primary ~ even after I and many others voted for him. Now we have to make our demands heard by Hillary, and make sure she beats Trump.

He's not out of it yet. . . and voting for the least bad option isn't very healthy.

As you observe and say, Carrie, Hillary HAS GOT TO LISTEN to the concerns of YOU, the electorate., OR, your election process will be seen for the phony set up it's beginning to be seen as.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie.

And, many thanks to AniMae for the above link. I have sent the letter to all delegates in 4 states so far and will continue.

I feel as the others above do. Bernie is really the only "tried-and-true" member of Congress with the highest standards of ethics. No Corporation has bought off Bernie Sanders. He has always voted for what he believes is his moral obligation to his constituents. He has taken NO bankster money nor given any speeches to them. They are not his friends and he doesn't attend their parties. He doesn't have an "in" with the defense industry.

He believes strongly in a two-state solution for Israel/Palestine and will not take AIPAC money. His message to the AIPAC conference was polite and non-bending, while Clinton praised Netanyahu and Kissinger. And, he does this as a member of the Jewish faith.

On every single issue, I agree with Bernie, and will not compromise. We may not get another chance like this until I'm no longer here.
For everything I and so many others have worked hard for and stood strong for over many, many years, Bernie deserves our continued support. After reviewing Clinton's record, I cannot trust her to change her tune.

Lois, I agree with your assessment of Bernie Sanders, but unfortunately he is no longer in the race. All we can hope for is that our views will have some influence over Clinton.

I will also add that even if Bernie were the nominee and win the presidency, I guarantee that at the end of four years in the White House many would be just as disappointed with him as they have been with Obama. The reality is that NO one can live up to his or her own rhetoric. It is impossible when a person has face the overwhelming problems and negative forces that exist for the office of the presidency. It doesn't matter who you are or what party you are in. Obama had to face more that most because of the ugly racism that still exists in this country. Bernie would be facing the accusation of communism, Clinton will have to face her last name and her sex. Trump would have to face his own stupidity!

I will never vote for Shillary! I will vote Green in the general election!

Terry, you might as well vote for Trump. I used to feel the way you do about voting third party or write-in. Now I realize that is a worthless vote, but it will help elect someone I really don't want. Remember what Nader did to Gore in the 2000 election. He helped elect George W.

I think you got that backwards AniMae. At any rate I don't think you can vote ~ unless I am mistaken about your citizenship.

All those refusing to support the Democrat Party nominee are starting to sound like petulant children ~ my candidate didn't win, so I'm going to vote for anyone except the primary winner. It just doesn't make any sense at all. A President Trump could destroy the world ~ not just this country!

Getting angry with those of us who look at things differently and ~ in my opinion ~ a more practical manner is not necessary. Someone will win the election and someone will lose. All any of us can hope for is the best possible outcome for all of us.

I think Clinton and DNC cheated on the elections. I still might write in for Bernie. I won't decide until November. If no one else wants things done right I do. I have nothing to lose my life is so impossible because of conservative policies.

Good call on the Citizenship Carrie! You are so right! I check this too! I have pointed this out before also and other countries have jumped down my throat, I tell them they can't Vote here so don't tell us, we would not tell you how to Vote! One from CANADA said what you want a wall built? I fail to see why they want us to Vote the way they think. We know what's going on right here. Thank you

To act as though this is already "a done deal" is rather like caving in to an inevitability that is presented to you.

What happened to that fighting spirit of fighting for what is right, ethical and moral. . .?

Do you really want more of the same for the future. . . ?
