If she holds on and wins Hillary Clinton will rule over a very divided country and face Republicans in congress who will oppose her every single move because that's the only thing that will get them re-elected. Republicans who compromised with the Democrats have been going down and the ones in congress know it.
Bernie Sanders probably would have been much less divisive than Hillary, who is widely despised and distrusted. In the article by Connor Kilpatrick that I talked about in the previous post he points out that Bernie Sanders was bringing "Reagan Democrats" back into the Democratic party, getting, for example, three times more votes in West Virginia than Donald Trump did, and drawing large working class support in rust belt states like Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin "even as he repeatedly championed Black Lives Matter and the fight against racial discrimination," which means that racism doesn't trump economics. It's the other way around.
Rust belt states made up the Reagan Democrat heartland and go back and forth from Republican to Democrat, or, like Michigan and Wisconsin may vote Democratic in presidential elections but the state houses and governor's office are controlled by Republicans, and a lot of the conservative agenda has been put in places in those states. Think of Scott Walker's attack on public sector unions. Think of the Flint, MI water crises.
I made the above meme as a reaction to the crises that engulfed Hilary Clinton's campaign tonight with the emails on Anthony Weiner's computer, but I have no cause to say I told you so. I voted for Bernie Sanders but didn't campaign for him because I didn't care for his history of support for things like Israel and war. But I think people have supported Hillary Clinton for all the wrong reasons, and one of those was that they thought she had a better chance to beat Trump than Sanders did, and as tonight's news reminds us that wasn't necessarily the case.
But more importantly, as the analysis put forth by Kilpatrick, and others, makes clear, the Democrats could build a large majority in this country from the top to the bottom -- president, congress, state houses and governors -- if they ditched this Clinton, Gore, Heinrich, Grisham, Obama, Biden, Republican-lite politics for good old class based economics and policies on behalf of the working class -- people who work for a paycheck.
Class based economic policies aren't Bernie Sanders' policies. He just ran on them. Anybody could run on them if they had the guts, and the sense, and the compassion he has, and they could go further than he did and oppose the American imperial project and the warmongering, the dangerous belligerence against Russia and China and the 1,000 military bases around the world that go along with it and that causes so much of the rest of the world to suffer.
