I am a Bernie Sanders supporter and found the article to contain a lot of well-reasoned criticism and good points. Of course, I am one of those ‘ideology-driven’ voters who has voted socialist for the past 30 years (with two exceptions when I voted Democrat), so I think Bernie’s biggest accomplishment is that he took the word ‘socialist’ out of the dirty word category, and let some people think about these alternatives for the first time. I do not support Hillary simply because she is not far enough left for me. But, while I agree that there is a messianic, cult of personality quality to Bernie supporters (and a lot of that is based on projection), I am encouraged that a lot of youth are looking leftward because of him.
May the fight be fair and the best candidate win!
