If You Are A Democrat, Voting For Bernie Is The Most Pragmatic Thing To Do

By Francesca Rheannon

The Dems will win the general election no matter what, so why not vote  for the "idealist"? It's the most pragmatic thing to do.

As argued by Benjamin Studebaker, the "right nationalists" have captured the Republican Party -- and that means neither likely nominee, Trump or Cruz, can win in the general.

The Sanders candidacy is the best chance to vote in a real progressive who can return the Party to its highly successful roots in the New Deal era. But that’s not why Bernie is so good for Dems. He’s better than Hillary for their employment prospects.
