Randy Shaw: There’s a reason African-American ministers across the South are backing Clinton—they see her as speaking their language while Sanders is not. And their parishioners feel the same. Why Blacks Support Hillary
John Peeler: The campaign became a competition for who could be most anti-establishment, most angry, most intransigent. And Trump has won this competition by saying out loud what Republican leaders for fifty years have said only in code. Trump and KKK
Ernest Canning: Was this official “landslide” actually an overwhelming rejection of Sanders’s political revolution or the pre-designated result of the South Carolina’s easily hacked touch screen voting systems? Hillary South Carolina Landslide
Robert Borosage: Doubts about Clinton’s honesty and trustworthiness remain; even among voters who gave her a landslide victory, she only edged Sanders out by 51 percent to 49 percent. South Carolina Firewall

Janet Phelan: While the pundits earnestly discuss the merits of the candidates, there lurks off screen a question that is growing in magnitude. “Does it really matter?” has been joined by an equally dark concern: “Is this only theatre?”
John Peeler: The paradox is that a huge chunk of Hillary’s delegate count will come from states that she won’t carry in November.
K.J. Noh: Since the time of the Medicis, even before, and the financing of the first joint stock companies in the transatlantic slave trade, we know that finance and banking is what makes our capitalist economy not just grow but tick… Hillary Speeches

Bill Fletcher: There is a fruitful comparison to be made between Sanders’s campaign and Jesse Jackson’s presidential campaigns in 1984 and 1988. Like Jackson, Sanders has positioned himself as the champion of the underdog — the champion of those being stepped on by the wealthy. Bernie Movement
Tina Dupuy: She’s smart, educated, accomplished and experienced. She’d be touted as a steady hand at the wheel if it were anyone else.
John Peeler: She will not be able to mobilize the enthusiasm of those who are supporting Sanders, hough most of them would surely vote for her against any conceivable Republican nominee, including Trump.
Larry Wines: Hillary has yet to score a lopsided win that compares to Bernie’s. But that didn’t humble her “Triumph in Nevada” speech. Hillary Wins Nevada
