New York State handed the 74-year old Democrat candidate Senator Bernie Sanders a major loss, ending his winning streak, stopping the "Feel The Bern" momentum. New York State is Hillary Clinton's home state, and yet Sanders lost New York by only 284,000 people. It was Clinton versus Sanders, the political bully taking aim at the socialist dreamer, who is waking up too late to the reality of the Clinton machine.

Energized by a string of victories and overconfident, Sanders squandered his time in the Empire State with a trip to the Vatican in the middle of the run-up to the election in Clinton's adopted home state with precious high number of electoral college votes.

Then the New York Daily News released a bombshell, the deadly transcript of Sanders’ interview with the Daily News editorial staff that indicated a complete lack of substance, no details to Sanders big ideas, such as breaking up big banks. The transcript showed there were no solutions, only the dreams of a 74-year old Socialist Democrat who had been in the Senate over 35 years and had accomplished little in his entire time in the Senate towards achieving any of his promised economic goals.

There was the over the top reaction to the Washington Post headline showing Clinton had questioned Sanders’ qualifications for the presidency during a "Morning Joe" interview when Sanders revealed his new cut-throat strategy in a rally in Philadelphia slamming Clinton as the former secretary of state and senator as the primary switched focus to New York.

“She has been saying lately that she thinks that I am, quote, unquote, not qualified to be president... Well let me, let me just say in response to Secretary Clinton: I don’t believe that she is qualified if she is," declared Sanders. "If she is, through her super PAC, taking tens of millions of dollars in special interest funds. I don’t think you are qualified if you get $15 million from Wall Street through your super PAC."

"I don’t think you are qualified if you have voted for the disastrous war in Iraq. I don’t think you are qualified if you’ve supported virtually every disastrous trade agreement, which has cost us millions of decent-paying jobs. I don’t think you are qualified if you supported the Panama free trade agreement, something I very strongly opposed and which, as all of you know, has allowed corporations and wealthy people all over the world to avoid paying their taxes to their countries," screamed Sanders.

The Clinton campaign pounced back..... using the Sanders’ Daily News interview to highlight the Sander's candidacy weakness — Sanders could not follow through on his economic promises. “He lost a lot of credibility....he was shown to be someone who tapped into the anger in the electorate on the left with broad-stroke ideas that sound good, much like Santa Claus delivering gifts at Christmas time, but without the details."” said Jay Jacobs, Clinton fundraiser explaining Team Clinton's publication of the transcript.

The Clinton Machine vs. The Socialist Sanders is the political corruption taking aim at the political dreamer, who is waking up too late in this campaign to offset the brutal reality of the Super Delegate Clinton machine.
