TWO BIG ISSUES dogged Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary: the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement (TPP) and fracking. She had a long history of supporting both.
Under fire from Bernie Sanders, she came out against the TPP and took a more critical position on fracking. But critics wondered if this was a sincere conversion or simply campaign rhetoric.
And now she has named former Colorado Democratic Senator and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to be the chair of her presidential transition team — the group tasked with helping set up the new administration should she win in November. That includes identifying, selecting, and vetting candidates for over 4,000 presidential appointments.
As a senator, Salazar was widely considered a reliable friend to the oil, gas, ranching and mining industries. As interior secretary, he opened the Arctic Ocean for oil drilling, and oversaw the botched response to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Since returning to the private sector, he has been an ardent supporter of the TPP, while pushing back against curbs on fracking.

We all feel betrayed by Sanders at this point. But I will say that he might have a small chance to make it up to us by coming out against Hillary for this and what I'm sure to be more and more of her "Business as usual" actions as she gains more power and control over he destiny of becoming the next President.
Bernie, if you're listening. For most people you're already gone. For some you're holding on by a thread as to whether or not you'll ever be viewed as credible again. If you want to still exist DO NOT LET HILLARY BRUSH YOU AND WHAT SHE CHANGED BECAUSE OF YOU BE LAUGHED OFF ONCE SHE'S IN POWER. You have one chance before becoming not just a lost hero but a new enemy!!!

This is where I find Sanders the most guilty. Either of short sightedness or lack of belief in the actual revolution that is boiling under the surface of MSM psy-ops.
