    “…At the last minute she will eventually be forced to offer Bernie supporters and Obama more concessions and control in her administration….”

    Hillary’s selection of Senator Tim Kaine repudiates this optimistic perspective. Please go to the link below to read my AFL-CIO NOW Blog article comments and follow links to WSWS articles.

    Hillary isn’t strong enough to beat Trump alone. At the last minute she will eventually be forced to offer Bernie supporters and Obama more concessions and control in her administration. Thats only after her team starts with the panic episodes they’re famous for.

    The Democratic Party stole the nomination from Bernie and is handing the election to Trump. Trump’s stance on the TPP vs. Hillary’s will cost Clinton the election. She’s going to lose some Bernie supporters over it. Already in my state, Florida Hillary has lost her 8 point lead and is losing to Trump. All along polls have shown Hillary loses to Trump and Bernie beats him. Because of its opposition to Bernie’s positions which their big dollar donors don’t like the Democratic Party is sabotaging itself and ensuring a Trump presidency. This election is very important for many reasons, but none more important than preserving a livable planet for future generations. We don’t have time for incremental change. By pussyfooting around and not committing to banning fracking, opposing the TPP and pledging to keep fossil fuels in the ground the Democratic Party is pushing the climate over the tipping point. If they’re not denying climate change like Trump their position would have the same effect. James Joyce said “History is a nightmare from which mankind struggles to awake .” The Democratic Party is pushing the snooze button.
