Another remarkable wife has shown up in the 2016 election season: Jane Sanders. Bernie was so little known when he first piped up that I didn't know he even had a wife. And, I have to admit that my first reaction to her was very bitchy: "Please don't wear those print overblouses." And, "she is going to need one of those major makeovers you see on daytime TV." Well, shame on me.
Her presence is the perfect complement to the bombastic Bernie and the perfect antidote to the over-manufactured Hillary. Jane Sanders is every bit as determined as Bernie . . . and she is calm, friendly, and steadfast in her optimism. She reminds me of the nurse who walks into the room and convinces us that we are going to get well again.
Boy, do we need that.
