As someone who does not support Clinton, but who is also not of the camp that would refuse to vote for her in the general election-a Sanders supporter who does not think that Sanders will actually come out ahead in the Primary- let me answer your mocking question.

Yes. I’m sure a good many of us know. For me, this is about having a voice, and making sure it goes on the record. It may not be this election, and it may not be this platform, but if it’s not obvious to you — whether from witnessing the Republican primary or the democratic race--our country has had it with business as usual. And that is what Clinton is. She may well be elected (our first female president-a milestone no one is even bothering to acknowledge anymore…her minimization of which is honestly my favorite part of her campaign, and yet, something you think we would be celebrating), but enough minds have been awakened to begin a change. Change doesn’t happen overnight. It starts with one, and it catches fire. That is what Bernie Sanders' campaign represents. Are you suggesting that because we might not finish this chapter right now, we should give up writing the book?

That’s thinking small.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
