    If by support you mean the money he'd garner... I'd agree. Hilary is going to be a funding machine.

    How much of what he says do you actually agree with?

    Is it possible you could be any more of a victim than this?

    Bernie's a great guy. I don't agree with all his positions but I do with the majority of them. His voting record and his many terms as a Representative in Vermont have shown that he's willing to follow through on principles that Obama only claimed to hold (and demonstrated that he didn't).

    Unfortunately he is exactly what Conservatives fear that Obama is (except for the illegitimate Kenyan thing), so his cross-party appeal would be nonexistent, which is a shame because if just for the civil rights aspect he's better than anybody you'll get...ever.

    And I say that as an alternate Washington state delegate for Hillary in 2008. I've still got her old campaign posters downstairs as I type this. I'll eagerly vote for her.
    Sadly, Sanders may pull Hilary to the left a bit during the primaries, but then she'll be pulled to the right for the November election.

    No more Clintons and no more Bush's. Though I don't know why you consider Sanders an extremist.

What it will do, in my view, is ruin any chance that Elizabeth Warren would have because her positions would be more linked to Sanders' extremes and Hillary will look more moderate by comparison. In my view, the only way to avoid a Hillary nomination would be to clear the field to the left of Hillary and focus on Warren.

    Personally, I want to see Jeb Bush as your next President so anything that helps Hillary is fine with me.

    You must mean a dynasty. We've been an oligarchy for some time now.
