Here at Blog for Iowa, we are sort of split between Hillary and Bernie. I am caucusing for Hillary. But just because Hillary is my first choice doesn’t mean I have to talk trash about Bernie Sanders, and if you are a Bernie person, the same goes for you. I encourage my fellow and sister Democrats to try to show some restraint in this regard. Constant bickering isn’t going to put one or the other over the top in Iowa, and it’s just going to make for hard feelings later when we will need everyone on board with the Democratic candidate to beat back the Republicans and keep them from appointing another Supreme Court justice, among other possible catastrophes.
Regardless of who you are supporting in the Iowa caucuses, there is no denying that Bernie is doing an incredible job telling the American people the unabashed truth. I don’t know if he will win Iowa or the nomination or the presidency. But we owe him our respect and gratitude in any event.
This video shows Bernie delivering a fine anti-war tirade to a good sized crowd with actual young people in it, in of all places, Red Oak, Iowa, home of Joni Ernst. Sweet!
