35. You must have missed some of the past Republican campaigns where they accused Democrats

of being wishy-washy.

Hillary has changed her mind on too many issues.

If she changes her mind on this one too, well, that is her right, and I hope she does, but the fact remains that she is caught because she has been wrong and then had to change her mind on so many issues.

I'm glad she is prepared to change her mind, but why was she wrong on so many issues in the first place?

That's why her trust numbers in polls are low. And that is why I question her judgment. She was wrong on LGBT marriage, wrong on the Iraq War Resolution vote, wrong on death penalty. These are issues about her stances on the issues that are important in the 2016 election, and she has, at some point in her life, taken a strong stance on the wrong side of so many, many issues.

That might not be a problem were it not for the fact that Bernie has taken the right stance, the fair stance, the humanitarian, inclusive stance, the stance that supports freedom and life on all of these issues pretty much from his youth.

That's why we like Bernie so much. He doesn't have to correct all his past, bad opinions. There are a few issues on which he has changed his mind, but on the politicla issues of importance in this election, he has had the good judgment and the moral foundation in his decision-making to take the right side from the get-go.

Bernie is just a person who decides things from his moral core. And that shows in many ways. That is what is good about him. He is not a flailer. He doesn't change his mind on the moral issues every few years.

Hillary -- well, . . . . Here we go again. She needs to change her mind on another moral issue, an issue of fairness and right and wrong. She has been on the wrong side of too many issues too often. Changing her mind on yet another one will not alter the fact of her inability to take the right side in the first place.
