Sanders is the candidate best positioned to take down Trump in the most important, and most unusual, presidential elections in US history. Grassroots fundraising has allowed Sanders to compete across the country, and will fuel his campaign against Trump, should Sanders become the Democratic nominee.

Sanders is not a perfect candidate. We worry about his age, 78, and his health after he had a heart attack this fall. We wish the televised debates allowed less noise and more discussion about how the candidate plans to cover the costs of his ambitious health care and climate plans; his recent Cuba remarks about Cuba angered and alienated many Florida Latinos.

Sanders is the face of a movement that’s only growing in numbers; he continues to top the polls, garnering excitement among a broad range including new supporters every day.

Money in politics’ influence has swayed the conversation away from these ideas that stand to benefit ordinary people over wealthy individuals and corporations.

It was good until they felt the need to include that snarky comment about Bernie's positive comment about Cuba making them cringe at the end. This kind of thing seems to be mandatory for a mainstream publication. It makes me cringe.

It's about time the US government and it's lap dog press quit coddling dictator Batista's exiles in Florida because they might vote for the right wing extremist for president. They will anyway. It's who they are.

Unfortunate as well that that was the only mention of anything having to do with foreign policy on the whole editorial page this morning with all the candidate endorsements including from some local state reps and Northampton's mayor. It's the elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about that undermines our ability to function as a democratic country.

Didn't mean to get lost in the weeds. I'm glad the paper endorsed Bernie even though I voted already for Howie Hawkins. All the others are totally unacceptable.
