Reminder: one of the Democratic presidential hopefuls has been described by former staffers, colleagues, and members of the media as follows:

An asshole;
Just unnecessarily an asshole;
Unbelievably abusive to
subordinates;
Would make an awful president.

"At their best, a skilled reader and manipulator of people and events, but at their worst, they fall prey to their own emotions, are unable to practice what they preach (though they would believe otherwise) and exude a contempt for those they deride, including their staff;"

Not to mention...

Lacking a soft touch;
No social skills;
As cold as ice;
Pious and self-righteous;
Utterly humorless;
A scold;
A moralizer;
The most unpolitical person in
politics.

Any guesses as to who? Nope, not Klobuchar; not Gillibrand; not Harris; not Warren. The correct answer is, Bernie Sanders.  https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/yes-millennials-we-have-gender-biases-against-hillary_us_580aa5abe4b099c4343195f4
