22. Maybe, but you are assuming they are going to give him an opportunity to explain exactly what it

means, and I suggest they won't.

As an example, when President Obama explained very carefully what the Iran deal consisted of, and what it didn't consist of, the first question from the illustrious press corp was why didn't it doesn't address all the middle east problems, and it continues. That is why initially the public supported the deal, but after the insidious nature of the media propaganda machine that has been reversed:

The Swift Boating of Kerry, and Howard Dean laugh are additional examples of how diabolical the corporate media is. They control who and what get attention, and what is and isn't news.

If Bernie is given the airtime he will definitely be formidable, but it isn't going to be easy, especially since he is up against the republican money machine, which is at least a billion dollars worth.

I will say this, if anyone can do, Bernie can, as long as they give him the opportunity.

Still it will be quite difficult in the red states
