Response to rufus dog (Original post)

Sat Feb 20, 2016, 01:00 AM

10. I respect your embrace of reality. That beats the responses of many other Sanders supporters

 

who have responded to me with all kinds of fantasy responses about Republicans being made to vote for Single payer or some version of saying I was too cynical.

If we can only get all Sanders supporters to recognize that Bernie would get nothing remotely revolutionary accomplished, I think we will be well on our way to a rational debate about who should be President. I like Hillary's odds in that scenario.

I disagree with the idea that electing Bernie would in any way change the narrative. Folks like FDR and LBJ, who got much more accomplished from a liberal perspective than Sanders would get done, didn't change the narrative much in terms of Presidential campaigns.
