One of Bernie’s central criticisms of Hillary is that she was wrong on Iraq, that she displayed poor judgment on a crucial matter of war and peace. It’s the centerpiece of his (thin) foreign policy, something he asserts as an open and shut matter of principle.

So why did Bernie vote to confirm Hillary for Secretary of State?

Doesn’t that undercut his claim that she is somehow compromised because of that vote? (After all, he voted against Tim Geithner on principle.)

Doesn’t that indicate he trusts her judgment on matters of national security and international affairs?

It’s a simple question, but a critical one for voters.
