New Yorker article about the primary has a quote from Sanders that says a lot.

When I spoke to Sanders last week, he refused to speculate about any Convention scenarios that didn’t include him as the nominee. “I look forward to her dropping out and giving me her strong support,” he said. He was adamant that Clinton could not deliver the kind of change that voters are demanding, no matter what policy positions she adopted. “The issue is creating an economy and a political system that works for all Americans and not the one per cent,” he said. “That does not happen through a speech. That happens by reaching out and mobilizing millions and millions of people. There is no indication that Hillary Clinton has ever done that, or ever wants to do that. You don’t go and give speeches behind closed doors to Wall Street and be the same person that is going to rally the American people. That just does not exist.”

Miracle! CBS streams a banner declaring Sanders' Maine Victory on prime time TV.

Is this a sea change, or what?

Explain to me again why the US is spending a cent in the ME for democracy.

This New Yorker article about voting in Egypt and the organization of society there is an eye opener. What is our interest there again? Oil or paving the way for the Apocalypse?
