Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I'm not convinced that Sanders is morally superior to Hillary.

I don't think Sanders is a saint, but he might as well be in comparison to most of his peers in the Senate and in Congress. Now let me be clear, I consider personal integrity and a strong desire for justice for all, and a sense that one is impelled to act on such principles as being morally superior to just doing what ever is most expedient for your immediate needs. Of people currently active in US national politics I would place Sanders at the top and Trump tied with Cruz for the bottom of that scale. Would you say they are all of equivalent moral worth? I would place Hillary in the middle, perhaps a bit below the mean. How would you rate her? By the way, I would rate Ron Paul at least halfway between the mean and the top, regardless of what I think of his politics.
