53. It is close but she may be a better senator than president. She has incredible knowledge and

commitment regarding curbing the power of the elite particularly in the world of Big Finance. And she is committed to the health of the middle class. She could be my #1 choice if she demonstrates similar knowledge and commitment in the broad range of issues a president has to deal with.

For now, I think Bernie would be a better president. Also, having Bernie as a serious candidate during the primaries and debates will open the eyes of people who have not listened to him before which would be a good thing in the long run even if he does not win the nomination.

I am sure that if both Bernie and Elizabeth run in the Democratic presidential primary, each will say some things that I disagree with. I will try, however, to resist the temptation to throw them under the bus each time this happens since I believe that both are committed to the welfare of the 99%. (Plus it is conceivable that they may know something that pampango does not know. )

Of course, any "flawed" Democrat is light-years ahead of any conceivable republican candidate. The idea of contributing to the election (by action or inaction) of Mr. 47%, Jeb, Rand, Mr. Bridgegate, the Canadian or (who am I forgetting) is revolting.
