that Bernie is the second coming, even when his 30+ year record don't remotely point to that. They are convinced, like the young people coming out for McGovern and the Hippies who didn't get that most of America looked askance on what they saw as a leadpipe cinch. They are convinced, like the progressives who refused to fully back Carter in 80. They are convinced, like those that claimed a left Mondale was too conservative in 84. They are convinced, like those that chose Dukakis over candidates that had a chance to beat Bush I. They are convinced as they explain to me WHY 72, 80, 84, 88 would have been different only if x happened. They are convinced even as I saw the debacles happen with my eyes in real time.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
