Response to Attorney in Texas (Original post)

19. With all due respect, that doesn't necessarily logically follow

It *may* happen or it may not but just because Barack Obama caught fire and won over Clinton in 2008 (and remember too it wasn't a total rout either- he just eventually won the math), it doesn't necessarily mean that Bernie Sanders will do the same next year. Bernie's advance seems to have stalled somewhat after the first debate and the petering out of Hillary's e-mail server "scandal". Her strong performance against the Republican "Stop Hillary 2016" Committee and Biden opting not to run seems to have given her a boost as well (or at least stabilized her). Bernie is a nice guy with all of the right positions on stuff but he still needs momentum to win and, at least at the moment, Hillary remains strongest in terms of the polls, endorsements, etc. If Bernie does well in the primaries, things could, of course, most definitely start changing in his favor.
