Let’s imagine a slightly different scenario. You’re a progressive voter who likes Elizabeth Warren. You drive a Prius, hate guns, and buy kale in bulk, but you find out that Warren does not support taxpayer-funded gender reassignment surgery for convicts. So, that’s it? Dealbreaker? You’re voting for Trump now? Of course not! This is the binary thing Democrats don’t get because apparently they never saw the movie ‘Officer and a Gentleman’ where a drill sergeant forces Richard Gere to admit the same truth that Democratic voters need to face: “I got nowhere else to go.”

Yes. You hear that Bernie, and Elizabeth, and Beto, and the rest of them? They’ve got nowhere else to go. So you can stop wearing your most divisive issues on your sleeve.
