Dutch -- I looked at Debbie Wasserman Schultz's voting record in Congress. I would judge her as a liberal and would probably agree with her on maybe 90 percent of her votes. On that basis, she would have my vote if she ran for Congress out of Colorado. She has been good to the Democratic Party. Her party members elected her to the Democratic Party chair position in May 2011, largely based on her support and activism within the party.
If you have a problem with Debbie Wasserman Schultz, you probably have a problem with 90 percent of the Democratic Party. So if you are blaming Wasserman Schultz for doing the job that her party members elected her to do, then you do not understand the Democratic Party.
On the other hand, Bernie Sanders didn't join the party until April 30, 2015. He's been a "Democrat" for just over a year. His socialist views are not endorsed by 90 percent of the party. That's why he could never join the party until a year ago.
If Bernie wants to transform the party, there is a process for doing that. Crying foul to the media, does not help to change the views of long established party members. To change the party, you start at the grass roots. All those young Bernie supporters are quite capable of doing just that if they don't lose energy in the next several months.
I have met and talked with many of the Bernie supporters. Yes they do not support the Democratic Party and their policies. However, if they join the party and participate, then they can work within the party to change it. Many of them describe themselves as independents, much like Bernie was before he "joined". I, like many of my "establishment Democrats", have a certain mistrust of Bernie's political revolution.
But hey, there is always a 3rd party option.
