Guess who I saw last night.

Last edited Wed Dec 23, 2015, 04:47 PM - Edit history (2)

Well, me and about 1500 other people.
It was supposed to be a small Q&A but too many people RSVP'd.












A few thousand people showed up to support him.


Sanders: 'I am getting a very good feeling about Iowa'


Edited to add the video:

7. I live in the Chicago area.

Bernie Sanders gets zero mention in the local media. Trump is covered every day. And Chicago is the third largest city in the country, with numerous newspapers and television outlets.

32. They actually mentioned Bernie

2x this morning on channel 2. First was a story about him being in Chicago today. I never expected them to even announce that. Right after that they did a story about a site called Nantique.com. They are fundraising for Bernie.

As I'm typing, WGN just announced they are going to have a story about his visit to Chicago today. It's a start.

8. Local reporters aren't the crap the national ones are.

I was a local reporter. Most of these people live in their communities and care about them. They're not DC or NY or LA denizens who cater to their corporate masters.

P.S. And most of them are paid less than teachers, so they're certainly NOT the 1 percent.

23. THIS paragraph stuck out to me and confirms what



While the pillars of his campaign ignite millenial voters, polling data shows they're not attracting senior citizen Democrats. Supporters believe his message will eventually win them over.


Cellphones. Cellphones. Cellphones.

You cannot poll what you cannot call!

Go Bernie!

31. Yep IWCC.

It was sort of last minute decision. Wasn't sure I would be able to make it. Would have loved to have seen you.

Seats were full. A few dozen people had to stand.

He was introduced by two union members.

I wanna see the pics of Hillary's Crowds... They aren't posted by the campaign, they are publicized by the media, they aren't posted by Clinton supporters; and you have to ask yourself why. Oh ya her support is a fiction created by her campaign, PACS, the corporate media, and paid for polls. It doesn't really exist. There is no ground swell of support out there pushing for Clinton to be anything but retired.

44. That actually surprises me a bit

The one thing that Hillary has going for her is name recognition, and I would have expected that to translate into people turning out to see her in person, despite the massive enthusiasm gap between her and Bernie.

Smaller, more intimate crowds, (like say, a handful of Wall Street Crooks), are the way the game is played these days...
