I like this article; however, I think this is untrue:
"Besides, he added, “there seems to be very little desire on the left for a challenger to Clinton.”
"That was what pretty much everyone thought. Look what happened."
Everyone is a misleading term. The political elites who were foisting Mrs. Clinton onto the people may have thought that, but they didn't ASK the REST of us.
They wanted Mrs. Clinton to be a done deal with all potential challengers knee-capped before the contest began.
Forcing a candidate onto a body politic under the guise that SHE is what they want is like telling a kid they will drink their medicine and LIKE it.
The entire "election" was intended to foreclose against ANY opposition to a throne already claimed by one of America's two corrupt dynastic families. These entities have trafficked in weapons, spread wars, signed horrible trade agreements into law which have dramatically increased the gap between a diminishing number of "haves" against a growing tide of "have-nots," and they've taken a collective shit on Democracy, itself.
This recommendation makes sense and it reminds me of the Kenny Rogers tune, "The Gambler." ("You gotta know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when to run...")
"Bernie Sanders isn’t positioning himself for another run. He’s not being stubborn; he’s negotiating. Nobody concedes while the negotiations are still going on. His negotiating partners should stop demanding that he fold his cards before the dealing’s done."
