I simply cannot believe the audacity of Elizabeth Frost, head of Democrats Abroad, when she describes the inexorable rise of fellow Democrat Bernie Sanders as 'inexplicable.' RIGHT NOW HE IS THE MOST POPULAR POLITICIAN IN THE USA. He was a fine mayor of Burlington, Vermont and then an equally good constituency congressman for many years. Then he was elected to the Senate. In 2016 he won the Global Presidential Primary ( this is the worldwide vote by overseas Democrats) by a landslide and also won 23 states in the Democratic primaries - half the country. He won 2,000 delegates and came within a hair's breadth of being the rightful candidate. Inexplicable? Frost's arrogance is beyond belief.
