I am nervous. Not so nervous that I am going to stay up another 4 or 5 hours and ruin a night’s sleep over something I can do nothing about, but nervous. The future of the world, to a large extent, depends on how people are voting today, right now, in Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, North Carolina and Florida.
To me, the right choice is clear. It’s Bernie Sanders, and that’s just plain obvious. Hillary Clinton is part of that elite group that is running the world, which has always been running the world, and unless Sanders does fairly well today, will continue to run the world.
That is, I am certain that whoever gets the Democratic nomination will win the presidency. Either of them, in a one on one debate against Donald Trump, will make him look like a complete idiot. Either one of them will manage to outcampaign him and, in fact, out fundraise him. Rich people know Trump would be a disaster. Lots of regular Republican voters will abandon him.
Here’s how I think it will break down. We’ll win Illinois and Ohio. If we can pick up a third, I’ll be ecstatic. If either candidate wins 4 out of 5, it’s going to be very hard for the other win the nomination. I’m in it with Bernie to the end, but if we don’t take at least two, we’re in trouble.
But, it works the other way, too. A Bernie sweep is just as likely as a Hillary sweep.
Actually, though, I expect it will be close enough that both sides will declare victory and the struggle will continue.
Going to bed now. With fingers crossed.
