Throwing a wet blanket on progressive activists in a primary election season saying they're "unrealistic" when they're fighting like hell to turn the Bernie Sanders campaign into a grassroots social movement -- the "political revolution" Sanders is calling for -- is not only unhelpful to moving the nation forward, but disparages those who make up the democratic wing of the Democratic Party by portraying them as naïve dreamers.

So why does it make so much sense to vote for Hillary? The simple answer is despite all the attacks; the tens of millions of dollars and thousands of lines of print attacking her over many years; Hillary Rodham Clinton is still standing tall and the leading Democrat in 49 out of 50 states.

The American people won't elect a vulgar/bullying/blowhard for President even if the ultra-right wing of the Republican Party manages to nominate him. We have never before seen the kind of campaign we are seeing this year within the Republican Party.

No American politician who has run for president has survived the media and voter hostility that Hillary Rodham Clinton has. She is clearly in a category all her own. But as voters, there are four Hillary groups Americans fall into -- lovers, haters, those who hate to love her and those who love to hate her.

First Nighter: Sherie René Scott's "Whorl Inside a Loop," Ken Regan's "Sense of an Ending," Anna Ziegler's "A Delicate Ship"

Actors Silverman and Dellapina, who plays guitar and sings nicely along the way, perform well together, and Westrate has some effective stretches. If on arrival he were to play Nate as less immediately psychotic, Ziegler's script might have a more insinuating dramatic arc.

I have tried to look for areas in which you and Hillary have real disagreements, and they are hard to find. So what I hope you and your supporters do through the rest of the primary season is continue to focus on and speak out on the issues you care about. Direct your verbal attacks toward the clown car of Republican candidates looking for their party's nomination.
