You can support Bernie and not bash Hillary. It's actually pretty easy to do as time goes on because she's moving toward a more progressive platform. The thing that has really struck me is that the more progressive she gets the more excited and comfortable she becomes. This is a good thing and I feel she's been waiting for it to be okay to be progressive without destroying her political career. Maybe not the stand up guy Bernie, and sure, it's makes her more of a politician but I feel she's becoming the politician she's always wanted to be. She and Bernie share many of the same goals but they have different approaches to reaching them.
I am a Bernie supporter and have donated time and money to his campaign, just sayin, before I get jumped on lol. I'm middle aged, educated, successful and male. I'm a realist and an independent. I'm with Thom on the "stop bashing Hillary" bandwagon. She is also a strong candidate and will accomplish a lot in the right direction if she's President. Yes I'd rather have Bernie but I mostly want positive change in our government. Save the bashing for the Republican candidates. They leave lots of room for it.
Most of all, give Thom a break here guys!!! He's trying to present both sides and highlight the strengths of two very good candidates. Ummm... In other words.... He's doing his job and a great job of doing it!
