Bernie Sanders Is Absolutely Right
On Sunday night, Bernie Sanders attacked Hillary Clinton on her ties to Wall Street, specifically saying that she is too close to the major corporations of Wall Street.

Hillary Clinton’s New Campaign Pitch: “Lower Your Expectations.” (VIDEO)
This is the first time this campaign season that I have felt like Hillary Clinton was in legitimate trouble. Bernie Sanders attended a campaign rally in Birmingham, Alabama yesterday. Bernie is supposed to struggle in the South. Bernie is supposed to not be able to reach black voters.
