I don’t really want to write about politics tonight, but I feel I must. I was very depressed when I woke up this morning and saw the headlines. It didn’t help that I have a lot of Hillary supporters on my facebook page who were gloating. Can’t say that’s surprising, though. They probably believe in her as much as I believe in Bernie, although I can’t understand why and they’ve never given me a good reason, and they were probably just as irritated with our gloating after New Hampshire.
But, I am really, really pleased with the reaction from team Sanders. Nobody’s giving up, nobody’s ready to throw in the towel. One friend posted this graphic, which sort of keeps things in perspective.
There were large pro-Sanders rallies in 45 cities across America, which probably didn’t get a lot of press because, you know, the press, but that’s why we have social media. And we picked up a major endorsement, from Tulsi Gabbard, a congressperson from Hawaii. The reason her endorsement is significant is because she was the vice-chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and she had to resign that post to endorse him. It’s an act of great political courage, and it says a lot.
Tuesday, there will be 10 primaries. We’ll pick up a few delegates, but we’re not expected to win Tuesday, either. Nonetheless, the fight will go on, Sanders should do better and better because facts, logic, momentum and the electoral map are on his side, and the only argument Hillary supporters have – that we should give it up and let her win because she’s winning, already, come on, please….isn’t convincing anybody.
