Who the Heck is Bernie Sanders?

   I must admit I am an ardent Hillary supporter, but have paused to rethink my support of her now that Randi has decided for me. This is a direct result of Randi's incredible arrogance. Almost every teacher I know and my entire family is a Bernie fan. What shocked me is that my very apolitical brother has a Bernie Sanders bumper sticker. I really didn't  know much about him, so I decided to do a little research.

    Bernie is a senator from Vermont. He has a direct unaffected approach that is like a breath of fresh air after listening to Cuomo and Christie all year. His policies make sense , an increasing rarity in the national political arena (i.e. Donald Trump).

    So has he won me over? Not yet, but there's still time. Why do I like Hillary so much? It's sometimes difficult to verbalize, but I've always felt that she has been much maligned and misunderstood. I also think she's brilliant and can achieve greatness for our country. The issues that are most important to me are the preservation of the middle class and a strong union. Both candidates want that, but Bernie has made a much more charismatic appeal. We all need to look at the issues and vote. Randi Weingarten will not be making my choice. Make no mistake, what Randi did hurt Hillary.


  1. Bernie Sanders is a far left fringe politician while Mr Trump might be viewed as a fringe Republican. I don't think either is serious threat to win nomination.

  2. Sanders is surprising many political pundits. Trump is currently Número Uno in popularity for the Republicans!
