Tag: Bernie Sanders
The end of the Bernie Sanders campaign always had a destination that was not the White House. I assume for many like myself, Sanders was a huge compromise, but one we signed on for anyway.
It’s possible Biden is learning from Sanders. Perhaps, Biden is discovering himself outside the Obama influence. He might keep Sanders as his close personal advisor. And I would hope the emergency of the current plague has shattered any doubts one might have about the vision of Trump and his Republican conservative supporters.
Sanders has good reason to hope that the young socialists following him will ultimately grow into the Democratic Party of tomorrow, even if progressives are increasingly animated by race, gender and identity politics rather than economics or class.
But if someone is completely unable to run a campaign effectively they have no business being President of the United States of America.
