What are Sanders' national security credentials like?

I'm guessing it's going to come up in tomorrow debates.

Considering how he screwed up the Putin question in the first debate I don't have high hopes.

The five stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance

Lots of people are heavily emotionally invested in their candidates and the reactions do reflect that...

denial: those polls don't mean much! they don't poll the right people! he/she just needs to explain his platform more and there will be such a wellspring of support that puts him/her over the top!

anger: we're certainly seeing a lot of that right now

bargaining: maybe he/she will be the running mate, maybe he/she will speak at the convention, maybe he/she will have a position in the cabinet

depression: I don't want to hear about the elections

acceptance: I don't want to do this but I have to do this for the sake of my ... future

Bernie is not a Democrat. What gives his supporters the right to criticize the super-delegates

which have been part of the nomination process since 1984?

You can't change the rules this late in the game just because you don't like the results.

Some posts claim that he couldn't get on the ballot in Vermont as a Democrat.

Here's the last GE ballot from Vermont. Clearly shows someone running as a Democrat for the House of Representatives.


If I just join a society, do I as a newcomer and outsider have the right to criticize the election process? Or would I be taken more seriously if I have "paid my dues" and have some seniority?
