Very well written.
If I could just add a couple of things:
Hillary was not a life-long Democrat. She was a proud Goldwater Girl who was proud to have Henry Kissinger’s endorsement and thought the Reagan’s and Bush’s were wonderful people, even praising Nancy Reagan’s non-existent fight against HIV/AIDS. She voted for the Iraq War and Patriot Act, supports trade deals and capital punishment, accepted money from Wall Street and private prisons and treats whistle-blowers as terrorists. That IS a Republican.
Bernie’s values and positions are much more Democratic than hers. He’s the real Democrat. She and the corporatists have been forcing the party to drift so far to the right it’s lost its identity.
