The state of Israel was founded in 1948. Before that you have to go back to a mythical kingdom described in religeous documents such as The Old Testament, a notoriously unreliable document. Between th

Sanders was the only sort-of-shining light out of the possible candidates for both parties. Both parties surely can do better than they did the last time around.

 

Republicans would have had a field day ripping him to shreds. Old. Jewish. Socialist. Easy to envision how that would have gone. Honestly, I'd have been very happy to see him catch fire (more than he did) and win. I'd love to see a Jewish president. Old? Ehhhh.... not so much. (trying to do my Larry David impression here). Like, was Sanders gonna raise that black vote? Don't think so. He'd have appealed more to white progressives maybe.

 

There was a moment in the debates that summed up my problem with Hillary. She was about to go off on some serious topic, and for some reason she started by saying "you know the other day, I was looking at my emails and checking out some of those cat videos... you know those?" and I thought I was gonna puke. Such a wooden and desperate and blatant and false attempt to connect with "ordinary people".

 

You need someone who can get people fired up. She just can't do that. She got her turn, now it's someone else's turn.

Hillary would be nobody if she wasn't Mrs. Bill. She picked nice safe New York to run in, which is Democratic from the word go. JFK Jr looked like the one to get the senatorial nomination, but then he just sort of crashed his plane into the ocean flying at night. The Dems saw then to it that there was no primary election. They just nominated her and said ... "Now go vote for her." Obama came from nowhere 8 years ago, but he got the Presidential nomination as the un-Hillary. And when Hillsie finally got it, she managed to lose the election to a complete outsider that no one gave a chance. What makes her think she could do better a third time?

 

New blood is needed in both parties.

In 2008, one of the higher profile Virginia guys (Kaine? Warner?) decided not to run cuz he figured Hillary had the inside track, had stacked the deck in her favor with endorsements and whatever, would be invincible. Regardless, they did start with a field of nominees, including John Edwards, Bill Richardson, Joe Biden, Dennis Kucinich, Chris Dodd. The more I saw of them, the more Obama looked like the winner in the bunch. I began that one supporting her, but got to see a debate when it was just her and Obama left, and that changed my mind. He was clearly the guy, in my view at least. I saw him and thought no way can they beat this guy.

 

I can't blame her too much for utilitzing her connections (namely the marriage connection) -- that's how it often goes in politics. I mean, how many Bushes, how many Gores, Browns, Kennedys, etc. etc. But if it's going to be the first female president, ideally you'd like it to be someone who did it solo, which Obama definitely was, and which Bill Clinton was.

 

There's plenty of fresh blood, just need the old timers to step to the side and give them a chance.
