In a recent debate with Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton bragged about getting the approval of Henry Kissinger: "I was very flattered when Henry Kissinger said I ran the State Department better--better than anybody had run it in a long time," she said. Now it boggles the mind how a candidate claiming she is a progressive can even mention Kissinger as a source of pride.
From what I've been hearing from the 2016 presidential primary candidates there seems to be little true hope and change on the horizon for the rest of us. To help those voters that still haven't made up their minds, I've taken the liberty of writing the below stump speech that they would be giving if they were being honest about their intentions.
The brutal, political reality is that numbers and, in this case, tradition, are against Sanders in the states that will determine the Democratic presidential nominee. In the space of three weeks after the New Hampshire primary, eight out of the next 13 open Democratic primaries are in the South. South Carolina kicks off that run. Black voters in that state make up nearly 50 percent of the voters.
