10. BUT... He has made her SEEM worse.

Retrowire stated in another thread that Hillary is terrible by herself, and doesn't need Bernie's help. While it may be true technically -- he can't force anyone to do anything -- what Bernie has done is to REVEAL just how bad she is. A year ago, the "hold your nose" option seemed at least a reasonable possibility. Now, the idea of it feels like succumbing to extortion.

This primary has been so different. Usually it's been a simple matter of, pick the candidate you think best represents your values, to go up against the bad guys in the GE. This primary -- the candidates, the systems they represent, their supporters -- sure feels an awful lot like being in a GE already.
