Brandon, the problem is Clinton was extremely critical of Obama in 2008. Maybe you don’t remember how ugly that campaign got, with some really harsh comments by her campaign staff.

I worked for Obama in both elections, but like many Democrats, have been disappointed by some of his decisions. All he has to do is nudge the attorney general and they can remove marijuana from the Category I drug classification that should be reserved for heroin and cocaine. This would immediately help black pot smokers who are four times as likely to be arrested as whites.

This is not about trying to diminish our President. It’s about saying Obama can do better, and we as a country need to do better.

It doesn’t matter if it’s you laying the smack down on Sanders, or Holly Wood flaming Clinton on an almost daily basis. We simply can’t afford to alienate each other during the primary season.

This is a huge election. With gerrymandering, voter suppression laws, and unlimited campaign spending by anonymous corporations, the deck is already stacked against we the people.

We have to rally our base, especially millennials, to work on campaigns and vote in unprecedented numbers. We can’t afford a third assault on our country by the people that brought us Reagan and W.
