Being pressured to support Sanders by my son

My oldest son and I talk politics on a regular basis. We're fairly similar politically but we have had a rough time settling on one of the democrats throughout the primary process. Or should I say I have had a rough time, he has been locked into Sanders the entire time. I have to admit that my son does his homework. He can talk at length about any of the candidate's positions on just about any policy proposal they have.

After the debate last night, I started to see the wisdom of his arguments. Sanders has the passion, the ideas, the right focus, and he doesn't waffle in the face of criticisms. I don't get the feeling that he is simply listening to political polls and changes his stances weekly like some of the other candidates.

Could my son have been right all along while I was hiding behind open-mind wait and see who survives the vetting process indecisiveness?

Damn! I must have been a good parent or something.
