The former Clinton adviser and pollster Mark Penn examines the importance of the first round of voting in the democratic primary.

WARNER, N. H. – Vermont sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday at the destination, President of Trump took over the rising tensions between the US and Iran, warning on Memorial Day, that a military confrontation between the two countries would be more disastrous than the war in Iraq.

In a speech in Warner — the democratic candidate for President, his first stop in a two-day round-trip by the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire — Sanders, said that during his decades in Congress, “I think, perhaps the most important vote I have ever cast has been against the war in Iraq.”


“Right now, if you believe that it said Trump and his people in his government have, apparently, learned nothing from this terrible war in Iraq,” Sanders. “And you have to go to (national security adviser), John Bolton and others talk about the need to war in Iran.”

Sanders, who is making his second straight bid for the democratic presidential nomination, said, “If you think that the war in Iraq was a disaster, my strong belief is a war with Iran would be much worse…Not only a war with Iran would be a disaster, it happens to be unconstitutional.”

Sanders made similar comments on a large rally in Vermont on Saturday.

The Trump administration has moved a rung alarms last month on what it calls “disturbing,” and “escalatory” by Iran. The United States was the raising of the volume on Iran for the President of the country took out of a multilateral nuclear deal with Iran a year ago.

Trump has spent weeks alternating between tough talk in the direction of Tehran, while still insist he is open to negotiations with the Islamic Republic. On Friday, the President told reporters before leaving on a trip to Japan, “we are sending a relatively small number of troops, the most protective.”

On Monday, during a press conference with the Japanese Prime Minister, Trump stressed his administration’s efforts to diplomacy, says: “I really believe that Iran wants a deal, and I think that’s very clever of you, and I think this is a possibility to happen.”


Sanders’ illumination of the his voice against the Iraq war, also seems to be a subtle side-swipe at the former Vice-President, Joe Biden, the clear front-runner right now in the current national polls in the democratic nomination race, as well as many of the recent polls in the crucial early voting primary and caucus States of New Hampshire, Iowa, Nevada and South Carolina.

Then-sen Biden of Delaware voted for the Iraq war in 2002.

“Joe voted for the war in Iraq. I led the efforts against it,” Sanders said earlier this month during an appearance on ABC’s “This week.”

An optimistic Sanders, the audience, estimated at 600, which I believe by his campaign, “said we stand a very good chance to win in Iowa, and with your help, we can get the victory here in New Hampshire. And if we win here in New Hampshire, I think the path is very good.”

Sanders crushed Hillary Clinton by more than 20 percentage points in New Hampshire’s 2016 Democratic presidential primary. The victory sent the one-time longshot candidate in a marathon battle with Clinton, the possible candidates. Because of the victory, and the consistently strong organization in the state, by his followers, New Hampshire as a must-win for Sanders.

The candidate also said, “we are doing much better in South Carolina, and we will do well in Nevada, as well. And we are strong in California. So, if we win the States, I think we have a very strong way to win.”

And he stressed that “virtually every poll that I have seen, has to defeat, to beat Donald Trump and many of the contested States, it by fairly large numbers.”

But the same very early hypothetical 2020 Federal election quarter-final-also show Biden covering Trump a healthy advantage.

Sanders was of Ben Cohen, cofounder of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, a top supporter and surrogate Sanders’ 2016 bid and who is once again a national co-chair of the campaign.

“Before, Bernie, Jerry and I of the most famous guys in Vermont will be used,” joked Cohen.

More seriously, turning it the nation’s capital called “the cesspool of what our political system is today. With our help, with all of us, it is Bernie who will be able to eventually flush them down the crap in the gutter.”

Ben and Jerry’s ice cream was served to the crowd gathered in an outdoor amphitheater-style in this small Central New Hampshire community.

The Republican National Committee took aim to tell the candidate, ” while Bernie Sanders, dishes up ice cream today, it is important to remember that what he is proposing is so sweet.”

“Bernie can hope for is that voters find to be the sweet his agenda, but on a granite Stater, it is nothing but sour,” RNC spokeswoman Nina McLaughlin highlighted.

Scott Wallace, a veteran of South Newbury, New Hampshire, and secured Sanders in 2016, and he told Fox News that he has the support of the candidate.

“He is consistent, he’s been right on almost every issue since he entered Congress,” he said.

While many other competitors are in the historically large field of almost two dozen Democratic White house hopefuls on the same progressive agenda Sanders first sat down in his 2016 run, Wallace said: “I’m going with the original.”

Susan Reynolds of Concord, was also in the audience.

Reynolds, who backed Clinton in 2016, said she was undecided this time, but gave up part of their holiday weekend, because she was “interested to hear what he had to say.

“He is one of my top four,” said she, along with Sens. Kamala Harris of California, Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts and South Bend, Indiana, mayor Pete Buttigieg.
