25. Here you go:: 2000 Senate race.

When Hillary Rodham Clinton announced her campaign for the Senate in 2000, she declared - emphatically, according to an interviewer - that she supported the death penalty.

Of course, maybe she has "evolved" on that issue as she has on so many others, or maybe she will tell us that we will just have to wait until after she is elected and then she will let us know her views (as she has on the Keystone XL Pipeline), but she was in favor of the death penalty in 2000.

One nice thing about Bernie is that he chose the right, the progressive, the intelligent and morally sound position on most of the issues long ago and has stuck to what was progressive, intelligent and morally sound for many years. I think he changed his mind on some sex issues, but then age tends to cause us to do that. But outside of that, he has a strong moral compass, knows right from wrong, and his stances on the issues reflect that.

I'm going to vote for Bernie, and I hope everybody does. He is the best on the issues and will make the strongest candidate in 2016.
