Politicians are still people who may change views, and evolve. The evolution of Hillary Clinton should not be used as the basis of attack by Democrats who plan to vote.

The 2016 election cycle is arguably the most important election in recent memory. Coming off the heels of one of the most successful Presidency's in history, our country faces a possible course changing decision. The political landscape is one unlike we have ever seen, with the likely Republican nominee being a reality TV star who espouses bigotry, homophobia, xenophobia, and Islamophobia as a platform. Using this fear based platform has done him good, bringing out those who think like him in support, but also bringing out those who are simply afraid and whose ignorance finds comfort in his message. On the Democratic side, we have an established and successful politician who is experiencing a bit of deja vu; originally presumed to be the nominee, a political outsider who was generally unknown to the masses has fast become a record breaking fund raiser, and has become a serious opponent. The self described Democratic Socialist, Bernie Sanders represents a break from the political norm, advocating for a political revolution in which Universal Health Care is a right, a College education is 'free' (as a k-12 education is free), rebuilding America's infrastructure is a priority, Global Warming is an issue of national security, and our path to Oligarchy is ended.
