I think what is important, whether you are Barack Obama

I think what is important, whether you are Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, is to embrace and own your identity. I think that’s not political. That’s good in life, and it certainly is the best way to be when you are running for office. If you don’t do that, the voters will see through it.

The truth is that there is no pure socialist or capitalist economy on earth.
Lawrence O’Donnell
Bernie Sanders is making a big and potentially dangerous mistake with his continuing insistence on changes to the Democratic Party’s rules and platform. I should know. As chairman of Al Gore’s 2000 presidential campaign, I understand too well where such ideological stubbornness can lead.

Mike Coffman
There are two ways to think about the one percent – the Bernie Sanders way, where we’re all competing for a zero-sum pie where it’s just a question of negotiations. The second way, which is the one I put forward, is no, it’s really innovation in a knowledge-based economy.
