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.
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.
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.
