275. Hey! Them's fightin' words!

One of my good friends was named Božo. He was a kind, extremely gifted artisan who made the most incredible 12 string guitars on earth. He was originally from Novi Sad in Serbia, where that is a common first name. He passed away a couple of years ago, unfortunately, but he had exactly ZERO in common with Mr. Sanders!

220. Exactly!

The VERY SAME PEOPLE who say Hillary had better not run (or else!) because of her age/we need new blood, etc. are salivating about a Sanders run. I will NEVER vote for him, and I feel confident saying that since he has no chance in the primary.

My one word answer: Yechhhh

9. Depressed.

 

That man has no self-reflexivity and has no idea (or does not care) why people like me are upset with him.

I have the feeling we're about to get 4 more years of Trump, as we rip ourselves apart for the sake of a man who holds the Democratic party in disdain.

the more the merrier. He'll drive the convo left, and that's fine by me.

We spent some time with him last Saturday (my daughter was a finalist in the Bernie Sanders State of the Union contest for high school students in VT.

He was lovely.

to reporters are MAGIC! And they really make things happen. No, really.

37. On healthcare alone he has transformed

the conversation.

Yes other candidates are talking Medicare for all, but that is because of Sanders 2016 campaign.

49. He was talking that for a decade or more

Also has been talking about a living wage for decades, free college for decades, and getting the rich to pay their fair share. Bernie has a great message.

Why shouldn't he run?

62. Democrat John Conyers introduced his Medicare for All bill HR 676 for the first time in 2002.

Democratic representative Conyers introduced it in every session up to and including the 115th Congress. (It was re-introduced in this session as well.) Even BS was a co-sponsor (although not an original) of Conyers's ground-breaking legislation in 2002.

It's time to stop perpetuating false narratives.

Universal coverage has been a core Democratic Party value since 1992.

Democrats have introduced Medicare for All legislation (with robust co-sponsorship and support) in every session of Congress for the past 17 years.

It's a pity that politicians who stubbornly wanted it all "NOW, NOW, NOW" failed to support Democratic proposals back in 1993-1994.

We probably would have had universal coverage through a single payer system by now, just like we have a $15 an hour minimum wage and free state university tuition here in NYS under "incrementalist" Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo.

The bill was drafted in 2015 and Cuomo signed the legislation in April 2016. There was a three year phase-in period that was completed in NYC in 2018.

Damn those incrementalists!

And, even if that were not true, post hoc ergo propter hoc is fallacious reasoning at its most egregious. It appears that it takes actual hard work, negotiation, and compromise to actually get the big things done.

That's like saying, "Well, the people of Vermont still have a good minimum wage" even though it's not $15 an hour, and the governor who vetoed a raise was re-elected in November.

In NYS, our Democratic governor actually got it done, despite a divided legislature and the ridiculous accusations of "incrementalism".

I have a problem with anyone who foments distrust of and disdain for a system of commerce while still maximizing their own personal profits by advertising, marketing, and distributing their products using that system.

is a clear statement written in standard English.

Those who decry the practices of a business entity run the risk of having their integrity questioned when they partner with that entity precisely because those very practices will make them the most money, in the shortest time, with the least effort.

By making Medicare for all the central theme of his national campaign, and by demonstrating that voters were ready to support this sort of major reform, now almost all of the current candidates are promoting something very similar.

Prior to 2016 the current wisdom was that only incremental regulation of the private healthcare system was a viable platform.

ready to introduce when Conyers introduced his house version for the 9th time in January 2017.

The last BS campaign theme primarily concerned the evils of both the millionaire class and established career politicians who talk a lot, make a lot of money for themselves, and get little to nothing done for the people who were unwise enough to trust them.

60. Ambivalent.

The entire cramped field has me getting very nervous that an internal blood bath is going to erupt and leave our candidate wounded and vulnerable to Trump's asinine campaign of name calling and BS.

I have only one concern in 2020 - defeating Donald Trump, period. The reason? If we do not, the SCOTUS will be 7-2 for a generation+ by 2024. The ONLY thing that matters in our primaries is determining who is the best candidate to defeat Trump. Nothing else is even close and yet I see the threads already attacking the same old purity / not good enough with <fill in subset of party here> nonsense.

If we do not recognize the criticality of this time, we will lose, period. We cannot let that happen.

I actually think he may be in for a bit of shock. An awful lot of his support was from people who felt like they didn't have alot of other choices and were being taken a bit for granted. That isn't going to be true this time. And it doesn't look like he'll be running just against and HRC type candidate. There will be several "lanes" as we call them today and his may be way more narrow than he realizes.

History has a cruel track record for candidates that want a second swing at the ball. I just hope he is prepared for that.

223. If emotions ranging from "meh" to "disgusted" can be called a gamut

There is a tiny smattering of "delighted"s, but from a scan of the responses, I'd say the gamut is a fairly narrow range, all in the negative territory. The bern seems to have been extinguished, at least on this (perhaps anomalous) discussion forum. Seems like DU is just not that into him anymore.

225. I wasn't claiming that the majority are backing Bernie

I too get the impression that his support here at the DU is diminished compared to 2016. But there's still a substantial number of posters here who are either strongly in his camp or leaning toward more positive than negative. To dismiss it as a non-factor would be premature, I'd say.

If he is in the primary running as a Democrat and has no intention of an independent run it's fine by me. If his end game is a third party run if he loses the Democratic primary, then I'm scared to death. Anyone who runs as a third party candidate and is "leftish" will hand the White House to the orange slob for another 4 years (assuming he's not in prison). I doubt Bernie would do that, but we'll still have the Green Party and others to worry about. In any case, as for the Democratic primary, the more the merrier. It will shake out to a preferred candidate eventually and no one should be discouraged from running.

319. Most definitely

Bernie is such a polarizing figure. You'd think he'd see that and step back for the good of the party, but he's not a member of the party, is he?

Some people have pointed out, rightly, I think, that Bernie's "radical" positions from 2016 are now mostly mainstream ideas. He put them on the agenda and deserves credit for that.

He also raised a big pile of money immediately after declaring his candidacy yesterday.

Despite that, he'll never be president, IMO.
