Will 2016 be a repeat of 2008?

In 2007, a year or so before the primaries of 2008 began, this was what people were saying:Bernie-Sanders-and-Obama

  • Hillary is unbeatable
  • America is not ready to elect a black man
  • Obama is too far to the left to ever win the nomination, much less the election
  • Hillary has too many endorsements and too much money for anyone to challenge her successfully

I kind of agreed, even though I supported Obama from the start. And I was pleased to have been proven wrong.

Now here it is, a year or so before the primaries of 2016, and this is what people are saying:

  • Hillary is unbeatable
  • America is not ready to elect a Jewish man
  • Sanders is too far to the left to ever win the nomination, much less the election
  • Hillary has too many endorsements and too much money for anyone to challenge her successfully

I kind of agree.

But boy, would it be great to be proven wrong again.

  1. If I read the letter he sent me correctly, in the last cycle he got 400k donations at an average of $33 per donation, or $13.2 million dollars. That’s not chump change. And he’s drawing crowds way beyond anything the others are managing.

    The main issue is whether the Democratic Party will LET him run as a Democrat. If they’re really set on Hillary, he’d have to go independent. And that’s a really tough way to go.
