Sanders vs. ClintonPosted: July 29, 2015
Remember when you took those standardized tests in school and you had to decipher analogies? Here’s one that came to mind the other day:
Humphrey:McGovern :: Clinton:Sanders
Do you remember 1972? We managed to get George McGovern the Democratic presidential nomination over establishment candidate Hubert Humphrey.
And do you remember the general election? At Pitzer College I finished my dinner quickly in the dining room at McConnell Center and headed for the TV room in my dorm, Holden Hall. I never even made it to the TV room before women coming out said, “Don’t bother. It’s all over.” We got four more years of Nixon.
For my friends who are Democrats, I ask that you think about that before you cast your vote in your state’s primary next year.
