3. I posted a good article on that subject


My post didn't make the Greatest and yours has, so I'll shamelessly piggyback.

It's an article from The National Memo titled "5 Reasons Democrats Should Be Proud Of This Presidential Primary". It notes the rancor between some supporters of Clinton and Sanders, ascribing it to a minority of "fanatics" on each side. Overall, though, it praises the entire conduct of the contest to date between the two leaders (alas, ignoring O'Malley).

The five reasons, each elaborated on in the article: "Sanders is speaking to the great crises of our time {income inequality, climate change}." "Clinton is speaking to the most immediate disasters we face {reproductive rights, health care}." "Both candidates rise when challenged to present fresh policy ideas." "Both candidates have avoided the personal mudslinging endemic to tight races (so far)." "The Democratic candidates arenít damaging their party the way Republicans are."
