Everything you say is true, Bernie, but the very people you want to help are seeing Trump as the answer. When the Democrats decided (and they did) that Clinton stood a better chance against Trump than you, they made one of the saddest mistakes in American history. It’s in these months, Bernie, that Trump is starting to unravel, and people are saying, “He’s no better than the lying politicians we want out of here.” Unfortunately, they can’t turn to Clinton because she represents more of the same. The big swing vote, Bernie, the slowly clearing heads, would have come to you. That Democratic strategists didn’t see it— and still don’t— shows how shortsighted they’ve become. If it were possible (I’m Canadian, so I don’t know), I would ask you to re-enter the race as an independent, Bernie. I’d run on a platform of “I Won’t Let This Happen.” Right now, you’re the only politician who can do this (and I mean the only one).

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
