How I went from Hillary to Bernie and then back to Hillary

How I went from Hillary to Bernie and then back to Hillary

" Before I go on, however, let me get one thing straight. I dearly love Bernie Sanders. I feel no despair or even disappointment to know Clinton lost three states last night. Whether Sanders or Clinton win the Democratic nomination they both would be excellent presidents. If Sanders gets the Democratic nomination, I will not only vote for him, I will volunteer my guts out for his victory. I would be proud to have Sanders represent my party and my country. 

            That being said, I support Hillary. After supporting Bernie for a long time, I switched to Hillary. Sure, I hated the Iraq war vote. Sure the George W. Bush administration changed my young mind from third-party candidates (I voted for Ralph Nader in 2000. Never again!) to straight Democrats. The carnage that the GOP wreaked on America turned me away from Republican candidates and let’s-bleed-votes-from-the-Democrats candidates (fuck you Nader and Jill Stein) and directly towards voters who could stop the destruction on our country that the GOP was instigating. 

            When the hideous candidacy of Donald Trump unveiled itself as an unstoppable force in the GOP, it became more imperative than ever that the election go to the Democrats. At the end of 2015, Clinton was busy frustrating all her allies by constantly falling on her face. Instead of taking advantage of GOP turmoil to easily glide to victory, Clinton was busy unwisely shutting out the media and just generally screwing up.

            The only good guy running a halfway-decent campaign was Bernie Sanders. He was drawing a lot of massive crowds and drumming up passion in a way that Hillary Clinton could only dream of. Also, in head-to-head polls, Sanders was beating Trump by wider margins than Clinton."
