Pete Buttigiegs uppsats om Bernie

Buttigieg skrev som tonåring en uppsats om Bernie Sanders som belönades med “2000 Winner of the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Essay Contest for High School Students” vid Harvard.

Här ett utdrag ur uppsatsen:

Sanders’ positions on many difficult issues are commendable, but his real impact has been as a reaction to the cynical climate which threatens the effectiveness of the democratic system. His energy, candor, conviction, and ability to bring people together stand against the current of opportunism, moral compromise, and partisanship which runs rampant on the American political scene. He and few others like him have the power to restore principle and leadership in Congress and to win back the faith of a voting public weary and wary of political opportunism.

I dag har Pete Buttigieg gått från att tidigt under kampanjen hålla sig nära Sanders politik, till att stå på egna ben några steg tydligt till höger om Sanders.
