Op/Ed: Is America Ready to #FeelTheBern or Settle for a Slow Sizzle? Is America ready to #FeelTheBern? The real question is how long Americans are willing to wait for what is due them? And Americans, as we know, are very impatient. It’s not that Hillary won’t be a capable and possibly even ‘good’ President. It’s a question of whether or not she is the best and right candidate at this particular time in American history. 15 years ago, she might have been a better fit. But now, in 2016? Computer says NO. The support Hillary Clinton receives is understandable and arguably, well earned for her contributions over the years as First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State. I totally get it. However? Right now, she is not the best choice for POTUS. If America truly wants to turn things completely around and chart a new course, it has to take drastic measures. Hillary Rodham Clinton does not represent drastic measures. She represents baby steps in the right direction. Will she risk her legacy to overhaul the system enough to initiate the change necessary for America to be great again? Will she take the baton from Obama and run with it or will she settle into a slow crawl as her rich supporters demand her attention? According to many, she is too entrenched in The Establishment to completely break from them and do what is right. There are far too many debts to be paid, and if pressed, they will show her the receipts. Bernie Sanders is, more than any other candidate at this moment, the best person to continue on with Obama’s plan and take it to the next level. Just as Americans decided in electing someone removed from The Establishment eight years ago, they should continue in that vein until the damage done by Reaganomics, the Bush eras, and yes – even the Clinton eras – are eradicated from our history and recent memories. So it is up to you, America: settle for five to six more Presidents like Hillary Clinton to get the job done OR… elect one in Bernie Sanders and change the trajectory now.
