25. In fairness to Bernie

 

I had forgotten this until recently, but I recall reading in 2016 that until the last month or so of the campaign, Hillary was reluctant to have Bernie be too prominent as a supporter. I think she was the one who chose not to have more joint events with him, and I read recently that he cut an ad for her in 2016 that she decided not to use. I don't know what the ad was or why she didn't use it, but my guess is she calculated the political cost to being associated too heavily with a self-declared socialist outweighed the potential benefit. In 2008, that wasn't the case because she and Obama had similar ideological stances, and the divide was more about identity politics than issues.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Undecided
