Most Of The “Most Valuable Progressives” Named By ‘The Nation’ Have Endorsed…Hillary?

If like me you’re a longtime and faithful reader of The Nation — a venerable publication celebrating its 150th anniversary — then you probably saw its recent cover editorial endorsing Bernie Sanders for president. That lengthy essay, along with many other Nation articles over the past several months, leaves the unmistakable impression that Sanders is the only truly progressive choice for Democratic voters.

Yet just a month ago, The Nation published its 2015 Progressive Honor Roll, an annual feature written by John Nichols, who happens to be a highly enthusiastic Sanders supporter — which named several strong supporters of Hillary Clinton among America’s “most valuable” progressives. In fact, of the individuals named on Nichols’ list, nearly every single one is backing Clinton (one exception is Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Matthews Burwell, “most valuable Cabinet member,” who must observe administration neutrality in the primary but — as a former top Clinton administration official — would very likely endorse her).


Is The Sanders Campaign Unraveling?

Just in the last 48 hours:

- Bernie starts lowering expectations of a victory in Iowa

- Bernie staffers racially profile rally attendees in Minnesota

- Bernie's people pretend to be union officials in Las Vegas

- Bernie fakes an endorsement from AARP

Sure looks like the revolution is imploding...

Bernie Bro Just Wondering Who Her Royal Highness Michelle Obama Thinks She Is Anyway

This particular young man is called Michael Sainato, and not only does he know, to the very core of his very earnest being, that Bernie Sanders is far superior to every other human being in history, but Mrs. Bernie Sanders is the other greatest human being (for a lady) in history as well:
The past three first ladies; Michelle Obama, Laura Bush, and Hillary Clinton all share a common insincere, yet polished, demeanor inherent with an affluent lifestyle. Senator Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders, provides an authentic alternative to this status quo.

Why Did Vermont’s Three Democratic Governors Endorse Clinton?

Kunin, Dean and Shumlin have refrained from attacking Sanders. But each has made it clear they believe Clinton would be a more effective president. Dean: “All this has made Hillary more than the best person for the toughest job in the world. I want her as my president, and I trust her to do the kind of job that is necessary in a very tough world.” Kunin: “He’s making a lot of promises. The question will be, is he really qualified? I’m glad he’s running, I think he’ll liven up the debates, certainly, and I think he’ll really underline and emphasize these central issues, which is good for the country.” Shumlin: “She quietly pulls people together and gets things done. Even though that’s not in vogue right now, I think that’s what voters will want in the end.”

Kunin, Dean and Shumlin know what it takes to be a chief executive. And they have chosen Hillary Clinton.


Bernie Sanders blocks President Obama’s FDA nominee in retaliation for Obama’s pro-Hillary stance

Yesterday President Obama gave an interview in which he listed off the strengths of Hillary Clinton and the weaknesses of Bernie Sanders, as a clear way of taking sides in the 2016 democratic primary contest. We’ve all been waiting to see how Bernie would respond to the blow, whether he’d accept it graciously or ignore it or get into a war with the President. One day later, we have our answer. Sanders now says he’s using his position in the Senate to suddenly block Obama’s FDA nominee.


"All Hillary Clinton supporters want to talk about is polls"

And all New England Patriots fans want to talk about is winning football games.

Bernie's New Ads Will Change Everything!

People don't know Bernie yet, once they hear what he has to say and what he stands for, they will desert Hillary in droves and join the revolution! Bernie will surge! I wouldn't be surprised if Hillary drops out before the end of the week.

Oh, wait.

Sorry, those were the talking points about the debate.

Never mind.

Nope, no sexism in the Sanders campaign.
