1. Hardball, Hardball, Hardball...

Donít you remember that famous BIG DONOR and KNOWER OF EVERYTHING saying it didnít matter because Bernie doesn't have the money Obama did at this point in the game??

And he should know because heís a big donor and in NO WAY did he post some BULLSHIT here yesterday that not only was wrong, it was pointed out repeatedly that it was wrong and he did not correct it because he is a BIG DONOR and therefore his opinion is unassailable!

Donít make me point this out again, Hardball.

2. No matter how the polls go, we cannot slack off. They've only just begun to fight against Bernie.

Also remember, Obama had the PTB of the Democratic Party behind him, the media behind him, a big war chest and a lot of the African American vote.

Never despair; never get complacent; never stop donating and working as much as you possibly can. As you do, imagine you are thumbing your nose at the Koch brothers, Pete Peterson, Sheldon Adelson and everyone like them.

5. Well for the males...

Time to make sure we "Man Up!" For Bernie.

I'm not sure what the correct and appropriate verbiage is for females.

Don't hate me for that!

7. Go gender neutral.

Step Up. Voter Up. Democrat Up. Bernie Up.

And yes, of course, I hate you for that. But, I am a forgiving soul.

8. What this means is that people aren't listening to Hillary this time around before deciding.

They've heard most of it before, and now this version of Hillary, Hillary 7.0, or whatever new makeover version number she is currently on, is NOT resonating with what people want to hear.

What makes this fascinating to me is that back in 2007, Senator Obama was a relatively new and unknown political figure.
Which meant that when he came on like gangbusters during the summer of 2007, he nearly attained rockstar status overnight.
Which was one of the criticisms of him by most of the talking heads on tv at that time.

9. I remember it differently. I remember the media deciding he should be President

while or immediate after he gave his speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention and I remember them exclaiming over the fact that he was filling huge venues, "He's a rock star."

I followed that primary relatively closely. I wonder why our recollections are so different.

10. In retrospect, Obama had a much easier task

 

Luckily Bernie is up to the challenge!
