Re: “Auditor Lea caught not telling the truth

Wow! What a blantant (unintentional) allusion to Hillary's email scandal.
Using private emails to do backdoor deals.
Getting caught lying to the U.N. about it.

Happy to see corrupt politicians going down.
It's a win for Arkansas and win for America.

Re: “For Bernie Sanders

I agree with plainjim that Hillary is "running the campaign of 20 years ago." Unlike in 1996, Reaganism is dead now, and that means Clintonian neoliberalism, which is the Democratic version of Reaganism ("Reagan Democrats"), has a very short shelf life to remain the bastion of the establishment Democratic Party. As Clintonism dies on the establishment vine, Progressivism is rising as the new Democratic policy base, because true-blue liberals ultimately prefer democracy to corporatocracy.

Re: “The trouble with Bernie Sanders' campaign promise: Federal prisons are a small slice of the nation's mass incarceration problem

Kudos to the Times for acknowledging that the Democratic frontrunner, Bernie Sanders, exists.

Be careful about falling into the Reaganite/Clintonian trap, where only Centrist Democratic policies are achievable, and progressive policies are dead on arrival. America's youth disagree, and we will write the future, not establishment press and politics.

Also, Bernie's plans are often mutually reinforcing. His prison plan is tied to his education plan, for instance. So narrowing focus to the details of a single issue can be problematic here.
