I like Clinton and Sanders


Do we all have to buy into politics as "Mortal Kombat"?

The primaries will come and go, and good times will be had by all along the way.

It's not going to end with one of them yanking out the still-beating heart of the other.

Both have pluses and minuses as far as I'm concerned but, good golly, what is with the continual sniping at one another here?

1. It does appear like blood sport from time to time

I happen to like Sanders and O'Malley. It's a good thing that the candidates generally appear to be more composed and well-behaved than their very enthusiastic "fans."

We would do well to keep our dialogue factual, logical, and even-tempered.

The real blood sport will be republicans feasting on one another.

2. Some DU'ers are really intolerant. And ironically they are also the most likely

 

to call other people 'authoritarian'.

I don't like Clinton much but do like Sanders.

That said, I'm not going to do the whole circular firing squad this time around. Stakes are too high.

3. For all of us, our emotions get the better of us from time to time.

We have to pull back, take a deep breath, and put people ahead of ideology.
