Go with the Grain and Demeter!
The Methodical, Error-Free Bernie
Watching Bernie Sanders and his crew run this campaign is watching poetry in motion, or the Swan Lake ballet, or trapeze artistry at its best.
Bernie follows a detailed plan, step by step. He never jumps around or gets ahead of himself. And it's working. The proof was in Iowa, where he demonstrated not only his popular appeal among the electorate, but his mastery of the strategy of American politics.
I cannot speak more highly of Jane Sanders and Jim Weaver--they are the mainstays of the candidate, his right and his left hands. I wish I had anyone in my life as talented and committed as they are to Bernie.
There have been some bobbles, not unexpected, from over-enthusiastic team members, and Bernie has handled the problem with dispatch, judgment, and ethics. He does the right thing, and he doesn't need to think about it for 3 weeks before he responds.
In all, I cannot think of a better audition for President than this campaign. Bernie is better than we deserve, and just what we need: a truly Executive Leader.
