A fellow blogger posted today (here) that Trump vs. Sanders is “the political reality that we face.”
First of all, we only have results from two out of fifty states. Trump and Sanders have each won exactly one of those contests. Let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.
Another issue I have with the post:
President Obama is fully and solely responsible for the current political climate that created the Trump Sanders matchup we face in the fall.
Hmm. As a reasonable person, I think that, just as a quarterback gets too much blame for a loss and too much credit for a win, presidents’ actual impact is exaggerated a bit.
But this line, imo, hits the nail on the head:
Perhaps we should all be happy, left and right, that the political machines that make up the democratic and republican parties are taking the hardest hits this election season.
