  •  he never said he was a moderate (5+ / 0-)

    in many ways he has always been cleverly opaque. but even if he'd said he was a moderate and we'd voted for him, which i certainly would have, because i always suspected he was anyway, that would undermine much of this argument. liberals didn't stay home in 2008 or 2010.

    •  He ran (6+ / 0-)

      To the left of Hillary.  I'm so sick of that zombie lie that everybody knew.  He had progressives in his economic team, right up until the election, then he dumped them for the neoliberals.  It was a bait and switch, and we were not delusional then or now.  

      I will not send money to, work for, or vote for, any candidate whose behavior benefits the 1% over the 99%. Work for my vote, money and time, or lose it. Not the other way around.
