[Ed. – Really? Sanders is anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian. Bloomberg is impossible to support for his radical policies in other areas. What’s to celebrate?]
In 2000, when Vice President Al Gore tapped Sen. Joe Lieberman as his running mate, it was a stop the presses moment in American Jewish life. Never before had an American Jew come within a heartbeat of the presidency. …
Now, two decades later, Sen. Bernie Sanders is suddenly the leading candidate for the Democratic nomination for president. And former New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg is polling not far behind him. What’s more, in many polls, these two Jewish men both come out ahead of President Trump in head to head matchups.
Whatever you think of Bloomberg and Sanders, whomever you support, you’d think this would be a cause for rejoicing, a counter narrative to the reports of increasing anti Semitism.
But instead of celebrating, American Jews are at each other’s throats like, well, Bloomberg and Sanders.
