This is encouraging--re AOC and Sharice Davids

"The piece frames this as AOC vs. Bernie Sanders, which is unfortunate, and it begins with an anecdote from the wrong campaign in 2018. The real mistake AOC made was opposing Sharice Davidsís campaign in Kansas. She and Sanders lined up behind Brent Welder, a former Sanders staffer, against a gay Native American woman running on a shoestring. One of AOCís major political talents is that she learns from mistakes and never makes the same one again."

1. Mr. Pierce Nails It, Ma'am

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is a most impressive figure, who has made the sort of mistakes rookies often do, and learned to do better.

"Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement."

2. I wonder how long it will take me to stop being mad about it

I know that it forever doomed Bernie in my eyes, who really should have known better. I'd rather not continue to hold a grudge against AOC. We'll see.

3. The Churlish Way 'Bernie' Behaved In 2016 Finished Him Absolutely For Me, Ma'am

As Ms. Davids won her election, and Ms. Ocasio-Cortez does seem to have learned from her error, my suggestion would be forgiveness.
