There were reports of shit going on in the Michigan and California Republican primaries in favor of George Bush versus McCain in 2000, yet McCain fell in line and was a pretty stalwart supporter of Bush (whom it's rumored he really hated) during the general election and during Bush's presidency.

In 2008, McCain was nominated by the Republicans.

These are the kind of most prominent things that come to mind.

We really don't know what deal Sanders made with Clinton per legislative agenda, assuming Clinton would have gone on to win...and of course, she didn't win, so...who's gonna know?

Also, when Debbie Wasserman Schulz resigned back when she did...who DIDN'T know that there had been a whole lot of shit going on stacking the deck against Bernie?

On this board, we were all talking about that shit months before that shit hit the fan, so to speak.

I don't really know that Donna Brazille is suddenly saying anything everybody doesn't already know; it's kind of akin O.J. Simpson's brilliant and ground breaking If I Did It-well no shit Sherlock, it's only exactly what you really and actually did, and exactly the case the LAPD and the LA County Prosecutor's Office brought against you.
that's the point - Sanders isn't any different than other career politicians.

Not much, I guess.

Anyway, my guy was Kasich, as I'm pretty sure everybody has known all along.

And he refused to endorse nor vote for Trump.

Or course, he neither endorsed nor voted for the Clinton as well.

Sanders is a lot different from other politicians, unless you don't think is refusal to take big bucks from big money donors and super PACs is meaningful. I do.

oh, but he has a second house, and it's on a lake so...

Is it in Vermont?

I'm pretty sure property is relatively inexpensive there.

Never mind that!

He wants to like tax billionaires more and provide universal health care and college, but he has a SECOND HOUSE, and it's ON A LAKE!! So hypocritical... totally invalidates everything he says and does.
