37. I think that's fair.

I see it a little more cynically I suppose, so to me the Occupy appeals sound like one more gimmick, like Sanders' TPP opposition which I imagine will fade to nothing shortly if it hasn't already. Now about 1980: I don't remember it all that clearly but I agree that the primary fight didn't help. Teddy was challenging an incumbent, though, so the scenario this year is a little different, although what I was pointing out in the last post is that by openly challenging Obama for six years Sanders has pretty much sunk any hope he had of taking the Dem nomination.


p.s. greetings to all and it is a great pleasure!
