In response to Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist Jay Bookman’s column on his blog on February 5, 2016, I wrote the following words endorsing Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders: (Link: http://jaybookman.blog.myajc.com/2016/02/05/bernie-vs-hillary-what-are-the-stakes/ )
” ‘And while making a statement can be exhilarating, at times like this making change is better.’
You have written another excellent column. Although I am pretty sure that you did not mean the last statement as an endorsement of Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders as our next Commander in Chief of this nation, it remains apt to be interpreted in that manner, and I do. Bernie’s speech is exhilarating, but at times like this, making change via Hillary Clinton is better. Hillary knows the connections of all that the rightwing corporate agenda has foisted upon America for decades and how these forces and persons work together, with much more depth and detail into this stealthy web than does Bernie Sanders. He sees the problems with absolute clarity, but she sees the way to the solutions with absolute clarity. Moreover, I still do not believe that Bernie Sanders, a declared Socialist, can win the presidency at this point in time. Hillary can. I give her my full support, and I hope that before this race is over, you will also.
Btw, I do not agree with you that Bernie Sanders has been fighting this liberal cause longer than Hillary Clinton, and I have followed her for decades, as long as Bernie has been a politician. What once was done in secret to transform America to become an oligarchy for the wealthy only is now open for all to see. Remember, how MANY years ago I was singing my song of what was really going on.”
