Bernie Sanders is racking up rallies on the West Coast this week, kicking off his Pacific jaunt with a rally for 20,000 Bernie-maniacs in Portland. Even though Bernie's speech was ultimately to a very friendly audience of Portland artisan craftspeople and alternative bookstore owners, it had to be enough to put Hillary Clinton on notice that she's again being challenged by an upstart young whippersnapper with great grassroots potential.
I kid, obviously. About the whippersnapper part. Bernie tried to nationalize fire when his cave-mate discovered it.
At any rate, today Hillary Clinton is offering everyone a free college education, because desperate times call for desperate measures. She might be able to afford to lose Portland, but she can't possibly be expected to lose all the youth she's energizing with her pantsuits and her snapchats and her hip language.
