It's curious that Warren has now gotten two high profile newspaper endorsements that endorsed her, but explicitly not her platform. 🤷‍♂️

The cynic in me wonders if it's about the fact that she's female.
That’s not even cynicism. The center has nothing to offer ideologically so they’ve staked their horse to be empty identity signifiers. The world can’t be better but by god you can see one of y’all be the leader of the sinking ship!

Yeah, he's so republican that he wants to strengthen unions, increase minimum wage, and transform our economy to make it more green. Sounds just like a typical republican.
An if you actually believe that I’ve got some oceanfront property in Arizona for sale! 😜

It is really telling that the worst attacks people can make on Sanders are straw men Bernie Bros stuff. He’s about the only one who can’t be tagged with corruption, nepotism, or just being a flip flopper. He’s also the only one who seems to actually care about working class problems.

It is crazy to think but the guy who happily calls himself a socialist is probably the best matchup v. Trump. Kinda takes the impact out of calling him a socialist when he wears it as a badge.

Yeah, but then you realize that he really is socialist, so there's that.
