10. Hillary was much more progressive than Biden. And few independents

 

think of themselves as socialists or even "Democratic socialists." It's too bad Bernie has chosen that misleading "brand."

Hillary didn't lose against Trump because she wasn't progressive enough. She lost because of the Comey/Weiner letter; and Russian interference; and the suppression of millions of votes. After Obama's re-election in 2012, the Supreme Court dismantled the 1965 voting rights act, which caused the loss of millions of Democratic votes in key states, including in places like Michigan and Wisconsin.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
