9. I just don't get why Bernie shut down the rally. We're talking just two women.

There are so many questions about his handling of this.

Politicians always get hecklers. Why did he have to shut down the rally?

Why didn't he learn a better way to handle this after his Netroots experience?

Why didn't he let the women speak for 15 minutes, then address what they said?

Was he afraid if he let them speak, his audience would boo them and come off racist?

Folks commandeering the stage doesn't happen at other candidate's political rallies because security would have never let unauthorized people on the stage. Why did Bernie's security let this happen? And once they let it happen, why did it require shutting down the rally instead of simply escorting the two off stage and continuing the rally?

If he goes into full drama mode over a couple hecklers at a rally, that does not bode well for how he would handle real adversity in office.
