Response to bettyellen (Reply #184)

Thu Mar 3, 2016, 02:23 AM

198. You have a point. To be honest my expectations were pretty low considering the mountains

we knew anyone with as little money and name recognition and the Democratic Machine against them, would have to climb.

But I was happy he decided to run. Hoped he would make it as far as the Fall but couldn't see how he could considering Hillary's huge stash of Wall St donations.

And then I watched how brilliantly he was running his campaign, and I did have to ADJUST EXPECTATIONS. Damn, it looks like he CAN WIN.

It is a happy adjustment so I'm not complaining.

He is telling the truth, that ONLY HE (see the poll in the OP) can beat Trump.

Thanks for your comment, I like to think about how low my expectations WERE and how much we've had to adjust them since.

He WILL beat Trump if the Repubs let him get the nomination, which I doubt, and he will beat any of their candidates which is why they want Hillary.
