Nothing to see here. Just corporate cash flowing to politicians. You'd have to be crazy to think that this type of money corrupts our system. Besides, raising this topic only helps Trump! So go about your business, America. Our big money people will look out for your interests.

And 90% of Sanders supporters plan on voting for Clinton. If the Dems continue their rabid attacks on Sander's supporters, maybe they can get that number down.

They're actually booing the mention of Clinton and Kaine. I suppose it's pleasing to say they're booing Bernie.

Ultimately, you have to look at the big picture. The recently released emails confirmed what most reality-based people believed. The DNC was actively working for Clinton and against Sanders. The release of info just happened and people are angry. It's a fresh wound. Clinton people need to chill, let Bernie supporters vent.

The other reality is that Hillary Clinton at this point is a historically weak candidate against a historically weaker candidate - Trump. You're going to need Sanders' supporters to defeat Trump in November. Attacking them and belittling their beliefs is not an effective strategy.

@22 You're just repeating a dishonest attack. The move to single payer, would save a lot of money. Yes, the middle class would pay more taxes. But they would not be paying insurance company premiums and deductibles. Thus, a net savings. The status quo - having close to 30 million people without health coverage, insurance companies skimming cash out of the system, and pharmaceutical companies over charging for drugs - is why many people want change.

All the issues you listed the Sanders' wing of the party "not caring about," were prominent in his platform.

Trump is a true danger - that's why it's so disappointing that Clinton is such a weak candidate. Her and the Democrats need to give people a reason to vote for her. The status quo will not cut it.

@9 "If only she would take on those highly popular Sanders (and I'd suspect Green) positions like raising taxes on the middle class and 'taking away your health care'. Then I'm sure she would be clobbering Trump but good."

Sounds like someone took away your psych meds.

Remember... Democrats are never to blame when they lose elections. It's the voters, stupid! Keep this in mind as Hillary, who is inexplicably in a tight race against a fascist Republican who has the highest disapproval numbers in history, is about to nominate a corporatist, Wall Street friendly running mate to further alienate a large chunk of the Democratic electorate.

@21 Impressive "180 split leap," followed by "a tuck jump" and finished off with a "back layout with half twist." Your gymnastic skills are formidable!

The mental gymnastics of the Trump supporters, trying to explain away the plagiarism, is highly entertaining. Denial ain't just a river. On the bright side, we're only on Day 1 of of the convention.

@1 @2 - It's fascinating that the candidates and their policies seem to have no responsibility for whatever way people vote. This type of attitude explains why we can't have good things in this country.

Wondering if The Stranger folks asked Murray or the other Congressional candidates about the TPP? I know Murray supports it. What about the others?
