While everyone else is battling over bashing Trump's latest nonsensical comments, or not challenging Jeb Bush on standard 'increase the retirement age' talking points, Sanders is experiencing a real populist movement.
On Monday Hillary Clinton responded to the emerging Student Debt Voter movement with her own plan to reduce the cost of college education and reduce the burden of student debt. She calls it her New College Compact, presented at a forum in New Hampshire.
The entire political punditry world has been holding its collective breath since last Thursday night, waiting for some polling numbers to interpret. But one question in particular seems to show some very bad news for the Republican Party.
You know, Hillary, I know these rules won't work every time. But I believe adopting them will keep your spirits up, and show women voters what they want in their woman POTUS.
We find ourselves once again caught up in the spectacle of another presidential election, and once again the majority of Americans are acting as if this election will make a difference and bring about change--as if the new boss will be any different from the old boss.
Focusing mainly on how many classified emails were on Hillary Clinton's illegal server misses a fundamental point: MOST of Secretary Clinton's emails would have been sensitive because she was the Secretary of State.

The GOP Debate. It came, we watched, it blew our minds! Donald Trump is like teflon...nothing sticks to that guy. Marco Rubio was a surprise standout. Jeb Bush looked pretty old. Scott Walker was boring.
It is hard to believe that the roster of 10 men could land such a despicable debate. It is a shame for them, and a shame for their party. I congratulate the moderators on having found enough substance in their questions.

Bernie Sanders can win--not just the primary, but the general. Democrats should back him, and ignore the arguments made by Barney Frank and others, who say giving Hillary the nod early is the only hope for victory in 2016.
