2. I don't know whether it is Bernie's presence in the campaign or that Obama

feels a little freer in his last years of the presidency, but with the exception of the TPP and trade betrayals, I think Obama is doing some things a lot better than he did in his first years in office. Immigration reform, overtime wage reform, wage reform for US contractors, Cuba reform, and now pardons for at least a few non-violent prisoners. It's an improvement.

The country is turning left. Sanders is the candidate of the moment. No question. It's the right direction.

We tried trickle down and conservatism and it has not worked for us.

I think we are starting in a different direction and Sanders is leading us. Hillary still has the lead in the polls, but Sanders is leading in terms of momentum.

Go, Bernie.
