This video clip shows retired New Hampshire Judge Brennan asking for repeal of the death penalty. His OpEd on Bernie is superb and is reprinted in full below.
Too late really to organize more of these for Iowa but certainly not too late in all of the other states. People are constantly asking me for examples, or things they could copy, or talking points. You can't have two people sending the same letter to one editor; right then, they can both of them as "circulars," maybe hearkening back to the "circular file," or waste basket.
I find each of these moving and powerful, and if I were an Iowan or from New Hampshire, I would grow increasingly convinced in Bernie's elect-ability. This starts with Iowa and New Hampshire, but it doesn't end there, remember? So, please, after you finish reading these letters, get inspired and sit down and write 200 words for your local papers, rather than the longer 600-800 oped length, and focus on asking that paper to endorse Bernie Sanders for the nomination. We can make this happen, in part, thanks to the continuing power of editorial pages in America.

Bernie Sanders understands the cost of war
I know we can count on Bernie Sanders as President and Commander in Chief to reduce the existential threat of a nuclear conflict and to end the military adventurism that led to the tragedy of Iraq and the continuing horrors of that unnecessary and self-defeating war.
I say this because on Oct. 9, 2002, Bernie Sanders, then a Vermont congressman, explained why he would be voting against a resolution that supported the invasion of Iraq.
Bernie said, "The question, Mr. Speaker, is not whether we like Saddam Hussein or not. The question is whether he represents an imminent threat to the American people and whether a unilateral invasion of Iraq will do more harm than good."
