I am entirely baffled by why politicians are throwing their support behind Bernie, and not Warren. Especially people like AOC.

I mean, I get the idealistic vote. I do. I like the world that Bernie paints, too. But I also know that Republicans are not interested in democracy or our Constitution any more, and only in simply opposing whatever the majority likes.

They will oppose Bernie on principle, even more than they did with Obama.

Warren at least has the track record of successful legislation and programs to support voting for her, no matter what the subject. She can do it, and she clearly has a brilliant team of advisors working with her who have a Plan For Everything.

Bernie? He has like 4 ideas, the same 4 he's always had, and while they will surely be successful and produce the results he hopes for... they'll also take 15 years to bear fruit.

I'm all in on a Warren/Sanders ticket.

Or Warren/Klobuchar.
