Hillary Clinton Deserves Less Press, and Bernie Sanders Deserves More!
Hillary Clinton is running as the incumbent, she disdains her Democratic opposition, and her royal highness doesn`t even deign to talk to the press. Hillary is banking on her surname and gender to carry her all the way to the White House.
Hillary`s confidence is unfounded; I`m predicting that hubris will once again lead to her downfall. Hillary`s famous last name didn`t help her very much in 2008; she lost to a relatively unknown former community organizer with the unusual last name Obama.
Obama didn`t have much going for him besides his skill at reading from a teleprompter and his cool slogan of hope and change , but it was enough to derail the mighty Clinton machine.
It`s time for the press to take Hillary`s Democratic rivals, especially Senator Bernie Sanders, seriously. One poll released by WMUR and CNN found Sanders just 8 points behind Hillary in the crucial state of New Hampshire.
Sen. Sanders is the real deal: An avowed socialist with a real set of policy programs to help the poor and disadvantaged, as opposed to Hillary who is an elite one-percenter masquerading as a populist.
I`m praying that Hillary`s piles of cash from foreign governments won`t be enough to defeat the enthusiasm of Sander`s grassroots supporters.
Hillary`s penchant for making huge blunders (private server, Benghazi,) will eventually lose her the election, but it behooves the press to level the playing field by giving more well-deserved attention to the underdog in the race, Bernie Sanders.
