Reviewing: Bernie Sanders Rally

When some friends of ours RSVPed for the Bernie Sanders rally on July 26, I knew immediately Kurt and I had to attend. I know quite a few people on the Bernie train, so not only did I want to see what all the fuss was about, but I figured this would be good material to use in my Civics classes when we talk about running a campaign. Don’t worry, in my classes, I try to keep as unbiased as possible and most of my students have no idea which political party I tend to lean toward. I try to always vote people, not parties, and have voted broadly across the political spectrum. With that in mind, I’m hoping that more Presidential hopefuls will make it down to New Orleans, because I would love to hear what each one has to say in person.
