illogical understanding of the term "vetting."

It doesn't help their case to continuously misuse the word.

To "vet" someone is to examine their record to see if they qualify for something. It's not to attack them with propaganda. Or to win or lose to them in any kind of contest.

if her campaign thinks it's been playing nice, and is now pivoting to attack mode---then bring it!

The campaign seems completely lacking in any kind of awareness of how ugly their own campaign has become.

They're about to go from ugly to horrifying, folks. Gird your loins!

didn't even realize there was such a things as anti-trust and monopoly laws ... they seemed to believe that there was no process at all available for breaking up corrupt or monopolistic companies.

And seems most American's don't understand those laws exist either. Or how Sanders does not have to invent a whole new legal system and explain it on the spot in order to have a realistic chance of doing what he claims he wants to do.

Please do bring that issue up, because it needs much more attention so that people will fully understand that breaking up corrupt companies is not some secret communist law invent by the Soviet Russian Martians.

You don't admit to any implications about why she's being blown away by recent losses.
Oh yah, we hear your crewmates talking about how it's just "white liberals", "white progressives", "BernieBros", or as one of your crew said "scary white asses". And how there's a "special place in hell" for women who don't vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton, because she's female. That's how you guys have been campaigning so far.

Will you consider Hillary to "finally be vetted" if she loses New York?
Will you concede, in that case?

Editing to add: I did self-delete. I would not have if you hadn't mentioned it, so I think thanks are in order. I still want to be clear, though, that Secretary Clinton's words also have consequences. Her campaign has just said she's going to ratchet up the already-disgusting tactics, and that she'll recapture people like me later. No. Absolutely not, cold day in hell, etc, etc.
