An Observation About Bernie

When Bernie Sanders announced his candidacy in 2015, I liked him. Not a little bit, either. I greeted the announcement with three heart emojis.

The longer he ran, and the more I saw of him, the less I liked him.

I didn't like the way he ran his campaign, and I didn't like the people with whom he surrounded himself, and I didn't like the way he debated, and, most importantly, his policies were not strong or detailed or achievable as presented.

He hasn't even declared whether he is running in 2020 yet, and I continue to like him less and less.

I sure don't see that changing if he decides to run again.
