|Bernie Sanders hits Clinton hard and the Democrats are starting to panic. They believe the two are going to hand Republicans the White House.|
The Democratic candidate for president is getting lots of coverage for his huge victories in Hawaii, Washington, Alaska and now Wisconsin. For his wins, he's attracting controversy along the way.
The fight for the Democratic nomination is getting even uglier. Hillary Clinton and Sanders are trading barbs over whose more qualified to be the President of the United States.
Many women see that Sanders's response to Clinton as seen as sexist.
Sanders fired a shot that struck a nerve with Democrats. He said that Hillary Clinton isn't qualified to be the president.
"She has been saying lately that she thinks that I am, quote unquote, not qualified to be president," Sanders said. "Well let me just say in response to Secretary Clinton: I don't believe that she is qualified if she is — if she is, through her super PAC, taking tens of millions of dollars in special interest funds," he said. "I don't think that you are qualified if you get $15 million from Wall Street through your super PAC. I don’t think you are qualified if you have voted for the disastrous war in Iraq."
Sanders also cited Clinton's support for "virtually every disastrous trade agreement," and specifically the Panama Free Trade Agreement, as additional reasons why she is not qualified.
Conservatives are seething over this. The agitators from the right are seeing the cracks.

Not only Sanders allowed the discussion turn into mudslinging, he gave ammunition to the conservative agitators in the junk food media.
Clinton never said Sanders is "not qualified to be president," as the senator claimed. She did, however, repeatedly demur on questions about Sanders's qualifications during an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Wednesday. Clinton said his rough interview with the New York Daily News on April 1 showed that Sanders has been "talking for more than a year about doing things that he obviously hadn’t really studied or understood, and that does raise a lot of questions."
Sanders's criticisms of Clinton focused on her policy positions, but to many of her supporters they came off as a personal insult.
It's just politics as usual.
I am not inspired by Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich.
They all are flawed candidates. I would rather see Barack Obama run for a third term. Obama would clobber the 2016 presidential candidates.
