Is Hillary Clinton "Feeling the Bern"?

    Is Hillary Clinton "Feeling the Bern"?

    Bernie Sanders is on a winning streak that has included some solid states.  In an interview this morning Clinton says she's not even sure Bernie is a Democrat.  The Vermont independent raised a jaw-dropping $109 million in the first quarter, mostly from small donors, besting Mrs. Clinton.  With money and support leading into the New York primary, many think Hillary could lose her home state.

    Ralph, there is no doubt the entire low information types gang are in love with Bernie and the word "free".  Wouldn't it be a wonderful world in nobody had to work and everything they needed was just provided by the government?

    But sadly, the game is rigged in Clinton's favor and there is no possible way Bernie could win the nomination, unless Hillary is wearing a prison jumpsuit.  Most of us know this will never happen because the DOJ will do nothing.

    I have lost total faith in our election process and wonder now if my vote ever did really count.

      Agreed Mike - all of the Democrats want to give away and spend taxpayer dollars and borrow heavily against our children's future.  Are the Sander's supporters that selfish?

      No Ralph I don't think they are selfish, this is the only life style they have ever known.  They are unable to understand that everything has a price, and someday someone is going to have to pay the bill.

      I agree
      It will be interesting what happens in NY. Trump is a native NYer, while Hillary calls home any democrat controlled state.

      How can this woman win? Talk radio is already playing CBS clips where she lied 5 different times about Bosnia before she said she mispoke about it in the 2008 primary. Here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfaxA9Q-9AQ

      Tsad you underestimate the liberal ability for denial.  Even if they were to hear this it would just be a story fabricated by the conservatives.

      Yeah,That's why Sharyl Attkisson who did that story had to leave CBS.It's funny now when I listen to Harry Smith on that CBS Evening News clip referring to Sharyl Attkinson's reporting it's almost like he saying she reported this not me!

    I'm sure she's feeling it this morning, with the loss in Wisconsin. Although the math is still working against Bernie, because of Hillary's lead with super delegates, if he keeps racking up big wins, it's going to make it harder for her to raise money, and put herself forward as the candidate who can win in November.

    I wonder, does it matter whether Bernie is a Democrat? (He officially joined the party in 2015.) He's running as the Democratic candidate, but I'm sure that was a strategic move to prevent splitting the more liberal vote by running as an Independent.

      RJ Schwartzposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Bernie calls himself a Democrat of Convenience.  He still "identifies" as an Independent - "having your cake and eating it too seems to be his forte"

      But Bernie is accustomed to eating someone else's cake.

    You know sHrilliary actually won the popular vote in the 2008 primary but Obama's camp concentrated on the delegates which was sHilliary's downfall, she lost on the delegates.

    You don't think sHilliary will let that happen again, do you? She and Bill have rapped up the delegate count mainly with promises and bribes to superdelegates. Just look how many she has even before any of the people, the Democrat voters, spoke. Clinton's support is far greater than what it was around this time in 2007. Back in the 2008 election, AP found that 169 superdelegates were for Clinton; Obama had 63 of the 90 percent they contacted in December 2007. That's a nearly 3-to-1 advantage. Her lead this year is 45 to 1.

    No Bernie doesn't stand a chance, no matter what happens, the Democrat "insiders" are against him, he can't caress them with money or favors or influence promises like the Clintons. But then there is always 2020. If Clinton gets elected (I don't believe she will) and with Bernie's showing this year he'll have her failed presidency to whack her over the head with and could very well be the Democrat's choice for 2020. That is unless they can find someone older or of another gender than him (maybe transgender, face it, gender is what the democrats are all about, vote because I'm a woman, the war on women) to run against him. The mantra won't be vote for him because he is a woman, vote for him because he is ancient and wise. He'll be a real life version of "Weekend at Bernies," we won't know if he is dead or alive but boy is he wise.

      A "committed" Superdelegate doesn't mean anything until the convention - remember that Obama had some of her Supers shift over to support him at the end.

      That's what I mean, he snookered her, the Clintons have made sure this time that won't happen, just look at the numbers.

    Ralph
    Clever wording.
    The rope a dope political machine is action. Both parties are putting their more popular but unorthodox opponents outside of the party that they are running. The real question is why isn't that a good thing to put new life into both parties that have totally failed the country and the people, election after election.

    Insanity, doing the same thing but expecting different results. Here we see a difference, but the party, both of them, see the handwriting on the wall. Of course the Millenniums can't read handwriting because they were never taught it.

    If Bernie can take NY, that is end game for Hillary? Consider also that Hillary didn't do anything for her last two years as NY Senator, and bailed on finishing her term to become Sec of State. Not even the VP?

    I don't favor either one of them, but with the pathetic choices that the democrat party have given their voters, we should at least see a choice, good, bad or indifferent.

    A vote for McCain is a vote for GW Bush
    A vote for Hillary   is a vote for Obama

      I think that if the tides keep shifting against Hillary, the overall confidence level in the Democratic party leadership and platform takes a real hit - voters will ask themselves similar questions as the ones Rep. voters are asking

      bradmasterOCcalposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      That would be logical Ralph, but I suspect the left has more LOYAL voters that listen and are not heard from . Just my opinion.
