-- agree with you re: Ms Nancy but Bernie's still with it

Bernie Sanders is generally seen as future-oriented; I think it is Millennial projection.

True, but let's also agree that Bernie has been beating this drum for decades.  I'm still not sure he wants to win the political battle, with all the baggage that comes with the job, or the philosophical battle for hearts and minds.  I lean toward the latter: driven to create change, not necessarily as the change agent.

-- true. This consistency is why l trust Bernie 2 actually do the the stuff he sez he's gonna do. As opposed 2 the other candidates who are adopting Bernie's platform. Are they parroting Bernie 2 get votes or will they actually implement these things if they get elected

Elizabeth Warren is the only other candidate with a long history of advocacy on similar issues, and the only one to actually get results. Will she win? It's too early to know, but Bernie seems less and less likely a candidate. He's right on the issues, but has the age issues to deal with. I doubt the youth vote will be affected, but the swing votes from the 40+ crowd will be. Eventually, the pragmatic Dems (i.e. the cowardly lions) will 86 him and Biden to boot.

In any case, it's going to be bloodbath … perhaps a fatal one for whoever finally wins the nomination.
Intelligence is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom, but they all play well together.
