I will vote for Bernie Sanders in the Primaries and I almost desperately want him to be our Democrat Candidate for President. I want him to be our new President. We need hope and a wise person as head of our country. He has a core of beliefs closely aligned with mine and has proved he has the fortitude to continue pushing his agenda of Justice for all in every aspect of life. He is a realistic optimist.
Just as Obama has faced unprecedented bigotry so will Bernie. Bernie is Jewish and will face a barrage of hateful commentary from certain Christian Sects. I believe he is strong enough, grounded enough in his morals and beliefs, he will get through it with dignity, integrity, and grace, just like Obama has gotten through it with the same qualities.
