This is a fantastic interview. Ms. Hall is one of the best there is. She really gets to the heart of some of the issues with the Sanders campaign. Turner is clearly a very competent surrogate and she holds her ground very well, but in my opinion her entire premise in this discussion is flawed. Turner’s position, and seemingly that of the Sanders campaign, is that the reports of trouble at the Nevada convention are overblown. Of course they are.
But that is not the issue. The issue is the tenor of berner’s behavior, and their disregard for rules and procedure that leads to the very real and disturbing threats against party leaders and their children.
And when Hall makes the logical extension of Turner’s arguments and asks about Bernie running for election as an independent, Turner builds a gigantic hedge in order to avoid answering the question.
