*** Official "I will vote for whoever the Dem candidate is" thread *** [View all]

It is time for solidarity, not infighting.

Personally I don't really care very much who gets the Democratic nomination. They ALL are a gazillion times better than what we have. In fact my biggest concern is how they would stack up against Trump.

So,

whether the nominee is Corey Booker, or Kamala Harris, or Elizabeth Warren, or Amy Klobuchar, or Kirsten Gillibrand, or Julian Castro, or Jerry Brown, or Eric Holder, or Joe Biden, or Hillary Clinton, or Mickey Mouse, I will march down to the polling station and gladly cast my ballot for that person. and I will encourage others to do so.

And yes, if Bernie Sanders is nominated at the Democratic candidate, I will gladly do the same.

Civil discussion about why you prefer one over the other is good. Finger pointing, blaming, and demonizing ANY of these potential candidates does NOT help the cause or our ultimate goal.

"Rec" if you agree.
