While Anderson Cooper was grilling Hillary Clinton about her emails, Bernie Sanders jumped in and said that this might not be good politics but, “the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails.”
Let me say something that may not be great politics, but I think the Secretary is right, and that is the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails, and let me say something else about the media as well. I go around the country and talk to a lot of people middle class in this country is collapsing, we have 27 million people living in poverty, we have trade policies that have cost us millions of decent jobs. The American people want to know if we are going to have a democracy or an oligarchy as a result of Citizens United. Enough of the emails, let’s talk about the real issues facing America.
Clinton thanked Sanders, and at that moment, the Democratic debate had a moment of unity that has not been seen in any of the Republican debates.
The fact that Bernie Sanders was willing to sacrifice any political points that he could have gained to say and do the right thing speaks volumes about Bernie Sanders the person, and the unity that exists on the Democratic side.
Republicans are so wrecked that they can’t even agree on a new Speaker of the House, but Bernie Sanders put the good of the country ahead of his own campaign.
That one answer showed why Democrats are the stronger party that is in a position to keep the White House in 2016.
