Vanden Heuval on Clinton v. Sanders
See this article. She contends the framing of the practical, head-centered candidacy of Clinton with the idealistic, heart-centered Sanders campaign. She makes the valid argument that even if we accept this framing Sanders is the more pragmatic and intellectually better choice on foreign policy, the economy, healthcare, campaign finance, electability and Wall Street. Sanders beats Clinton on both counts, so the dichotomous framing is a fallacy.
