I don’t know what has happened to the Democratic Party I grew up loving. With Helmet Hair Hillary at the Helm, it’s a transmogrification that could potentially make my sainted mother turn over in her grave. Sorry, Mom.

After Bernie won 3 caucuses in one day on March 26 and closed the gap between his pledged delegate count and Hillary’s to just 200, the people who do these things refused to allocate all of the Washington delegates.

Columnist H. A. Goodman gives great reasons for predicting a landslide win for Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Primary, now that:

  1. Bernie’s consistently polling ahead of Hillary in both New Hampshire and Iowa, and

Sanders has once again surpassed Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire, and when he wins both, could easily take South Carolina. With three initial losses, Clinton’s Southern “firewall” and hopes at a big Super Tuesday would be done, and the positive media coverage alone would propel Sanders throughout the primaries … After these initial wins for Bernie Sanders, the media will finally jump on the bandwagon, leading to a landslide victory for Sanders in 2016. read more
