Reading the interview with New York Daily News Editorial board strengthened my impression  that Sanders was all ideology with little in the way of concrete plans or executive instinct. However, I apparently was doing it wrong.

This article gives a very different perspective of that particular interview, and makes me hopeful that a Sanders administration won't be as bumfuck useless as I fear.

What is your opinion (or the author's) of the use of Voter's Guides? e.g. "I trust the opinions and analysis of Publication X. I don't have time to do all the research I'd need to do to consider myself adequately informed, so I'm going to take the recommendations of Publication X rather than sacrifice my vote."

this article gave me some perspective on the persian gulf situation.
