It’s Up To You, New York.

By Jerry Alatalo

On Tuesday April 19, the people of New York state vote for their choice of Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton as the Democratic party nominee for President. On the one hand there is Ms. Clinton, still unwilling to share the transcripts of her paid speeches to Wall Street giant Goldman Sachs. On the other there is Mr. Sanders, going to Rome after being invited by Pope Francis to speak on the world economy with other leaders at the Vatican, and the transcript made available for all to read.

Nobody knows what topics were covered at the Goldman Sachs meetings where Ms. Clinton gave her $225,000 “top-secret, classified” speeches; only those in attendance at the closed-door meetings could be certain. New York state voters might want to remember that Bernie Sanders’ talk in Rome was about the need for a “moral global economy”, dealing with record wealth inequality,  and that the meetings in Rome were the furthest one can imagine from being “top-secret”.

That one contrast between Sanders and Clinton alone should convince the large majority of voters in New York to go with Sanders, and help him win the New York election.
