I sit back and quietly watch,,

About what is going here, and how sometimes, we tend to argue among ourselves. Please let me explain why I think all sides are jumping the gun a bit. Yes, Bernie rocking it right now, and yes you see Joe B on my sig. But here is what I see as reality. caucuses vs primaries. Iowa,Nevada are caucuses. Let's all breathe and accept that a caucus works in stages, it is about who wins what stage and then the next stage comes and any certain candidate can lobby others, who lost the prior stage of caucus, to come to their side until, there is a winner.
Unfortunately for caucus believers, general elections and primaries do not work this way. Then, people vote, votes are counted and what is done is done. If Bernie wins,,I will support him 100%,, but half of what has happened has been caucuses. And the results of those, includes the delegates who were allowed by rule, to change there vote after 1st,2nd or whatever stage. That is how I understand it works. And I am really impressed at how these results are coming forth.
But I also know, there are not many caucuses left, and eventually the general election will come with whoever "our candidate" is against the one who I will never type his name. And then,, there are no "stages" there are no "lobbying for delegates". There will be what is supposed to a be a simple, 1 vote for 1 person election, no look back's no changes.( unless Russia). Bernie doing well right now, better than I thought he would.
Reality is, we are not even to playoffs yet, much less the Super Bowl, for a sports analogy. When it comes down to Super Bowl, we all need to understand the rules, tiebreakers if you will, in football analogy, that brings certain teams into playoffs.
But when it comes down to the Super Bowl, you can either Love the team that beat you in playoffs and root for them, or,, you can hate the team that beat you in playoffs, and hope they lose.
Shortly,,caucuses are different than primaries or general elections. Sports analogy wise, I know who won last Super Bowl, I didn't like that team then,, and will support any team that kicks my team out of playoffs before this next Super Bowl.
