How is it POSSIBLE that these folks missed the blue wave which was fundamentally female--driven by women voters?
How is anyone missing this fact?
It's a major reason why Sanders' numbers have plummeted.
Wealthy small s socialists berating actual working class people.
Simple: White male entitlement.
The presumption that white men DESERVE the presidency by virtue of longevity (Bernie) or charisma (Beto) never translates to women. It's solely the purview of men who own American political power and have for 242yrs.
These hyperventilating pieces about Bernie and Beto and their contingencies are so out of touch with actual voters, and particularly the Democratic base, which is women and POC, not white dudes.
It does not.
It's a statement of blatant irresponsibility and lack of accountability.
You must choose the nominee with your votes--not depend on others.
I voted for Hillary Clinton because she had the most progressive platform in US history and was best able to implement it as well as to listen to people like me who were further to the left than she (or Sanders) was.
I don't see that Beto moves America forward, charismatic as some find him.
That isn't the argument. It's not the basis for 2020.
So fight on.
Neither of you will be the nominee.
When I do this writing, I sure wish people would at least listen, as it is exhausting.
I--and you--deserve better than "any" Democrat.
