I never once considered the absurd notion, Senator Sanders ‘isn’t popular with people of color.’ Bernie’s message was a clarion call for a just society. What writer with a shred of integrity would think for an instant: our Black community would denounce the Sanders revolution? I mean, it’s patently absurd on it’s face.
Conversely, I did feel this was somewhat true about Hillary Clinton. She only moved left of center, as it became impossible to obstruct Sander’s overwhelming popularity, evidenced by the enormous crowds ‘his platform of economic fairness, healthcare for all, free college tuition, etc produced.’
Clinton should leave us to rebuild this country, justified or not: HRC is a polarizing figure, unsuited to consensus building. Sure, she was known to work with the GOP on occasion - not so difficult when you have natural proclivity for ‘conservative values and methods.’ To be sure: she’s the last person the Democrats should run against the radical right. Finally, I have to question Clinton’s motivation to become president. She wouldn’t suddenly become a left leaning populist if she had gotten to office. We’d just have more of the same ‘right of center’ governing - with radical Republicans viciously assaulting her with the “liberal” epithet. With HRC in the oval, we’d be subjected to an endless GOP orgy of Hillary hatred. So, how does she convince herself this would be good for the citizens of the United States? There is no justification for pursuing the presidency when fulfilling a personal goal Trumps what is best for society. But, Hillary Clinton isn’t likely to concede this point.
Go away Hillary - please just go.
