I see folks here saying that evil is evil, there are no degrees of evil. This is the sort of black and white view of life that is the hallmark of the fanatic personality — no nuance.

Sure I voted for Bernie because what he has been saying for his entire life is right on point. But it is time for Bernie to grow a little more, to expand his horizons without compromising his core ideals.

If Bernie switches gears and goes all in with supporting Hillary his stature within the Democratic Party will rise immensely. By doing so he will demonstrate a true sense of rational priority.

With all her flaws Hillary is far and away a better statesmen and human being than little Donald, “oh look at me,” Trump. Any one in their right mind wouldn’t let this guy babysit their child let alone the nation.
