Summary: The implosion of the Clinton campaign, and how they are trying to prevent it.

Hilary Clinton and her campaign are waging an old-fashioned campaign. Collect a war chest of big donor, marginalize your opponent when they begin to close the gap on whatever lead you may have. We are in a new era of politics with a more aware and astute political base within the Democratic Party. People are no longer willing to accept the status quo, and be spoon fed the “this is the way politics work” crap. Senator Bernie Sanders has awakened a sleeping giant, the American grassroots base, and there is no stopping the forward momentum. Senator Sanders will stay the course. “The worm has turned.” This author believes the days of politics, as usual, are gone forever, or at the very least, are seeing the beginnings of its demise.
