    Ouch.



    Also in the article:

    Did he make a mistake? Even Huffington Post mentioned how Paul gets to make a choice for the American people:

    I am hoping people are voting Clinton ONLY because they really don't have another choice, got a feeling many of them will puke after they pull the lever

    I'm probably in that group, and I'll be sure to bring a damp cloth to clean up afterwards.

    It's fascinating how Sanders attracts vastly different demographics for vastly different reasons. On the liberal side of the spectrum, because he's a staunch liberal. To libertarians, because he's an outsider anti-establishment, while conservatives appreciate his honesty and integrity.

    He's the most interesting thing to happen in american politics in a long time, unfortunately he runs against a Clinton.

    The US fought so hard to get rid of monarchies, only to replace them with their own dynasties (the Roosevelt, Kennedy, Bush, Clinton...)

    Not really. He's been in politics for decades.

    I don't really get the fuss over him. He's not the magical revolution that some would claim. If he were, he'd be beating Hillary, not be millions of votes behind.
