Thanks, Bernie. We fell short, but we'd have none of this without your hard work and miracle campaign.

'We need to elect a Democratic Congress and president' - Bernie Sanders

"We now have the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party....If we are going to transform America and create a government which works for all and not just the 1 percent we need to elect candidates who will fight for these principles."

"We need to elect a Democratic Congress and president and make certain that the language in the Democratic platform is translated into law. We must ensure that progress for working families in America does not end on the pages of the Democratic platform but becomes reality,” Sanders said.

The Platform Committee...adopted an amendment focused on criminal justice reform which calls for an investigation by the Department of Justice to investigate all shootings involving police officers.

The platform that will be submitted at the Democratic National Convention later this month in Philadelphia also would support Congress putting a price on carbon and methane to discourage continued use of fossil fuels that are causing severe climate change. The platform also says lawmakers must consider the impact on the climate in all federal decisions and invest heavily in wind and solar power rather than natural gas.

@bobsal u1553115,
That's not going to happen in this country, because there are too many stupid people voting to reelection congress members who don't care about this country or the American people. They prefer to play party politics, and waste time and money on useless gridlock.

@cicerone imposter,
Think of the difference Bernie Sanders could make at certain elections if he can continue to draw tens of thousands of followers and millions in local contribution to those races!

@bobsal u1553115,
I hope that younger voters are somehow pulled into voting in the next couple of rounds of elections. Make it more of a norm to do so.

@ehBeth,
Bernie has decided he has done as much damage as he can so he has come out for Hillary. I was listening to the radio today and every conservative radio commentator was quoting Bernie on his vicious attacks on her and asking how he could back someone he felt that way about. They have suddenly started talking about his communism. And his socialist views also.

He's already sent funding and appeared for at least four Congressional campaigns.

We need every mother loving one of them for this year's Congressional elections. I fear that between Hillary and Donald's negative numbers that the turnout will be suppressed and we'll get even more teabillies in Washington. Even though Hilary will be in the White House, we'll get and even worse Congress.

No need to expend any energy trying to convince me of Bernie's level of conviction for either Hillary or the Democrats. I can see and understand and judge for myself. And I have an excellent example as a standard of how the loser in the nomination fight can support the nominee and the party. Her name is Hillary Clinton.

@ehBeth,
The younger voters were pulled in by the fresh honesty and transparency and good policies of Bernie sanders and left when Hillary was what the Dems wound up with.

They will never be attracted to old crooks with tired policies.

The Dems lost young people this cycle.

All of the 20% or so of Bernie voters that Hillary Clinton has lost aren't cut from the same cloth. thank God.

The lost Bernie voters that are disappointed, disillusioned young people might learn from this, and they may find ways to continue to participate productively in a politics (or society or work or relationships) that doesn't give them every single thing they want.

The lost Bernie voters that are self-deluded bitter old kooks will probably go on being deluded old kooks trying to fit politics into some all or nothing scenario and trying to convince others of their fucked up dead end scorched earth ideas.

I'm glad a true progressive and champion for civil rights has the nerve to call it like it is: Obama has failed blacks during his tenure. Instead of visiting the places where murderous injustice gathers black Americans fighting for freedom from institutional murder, he flies over their heads to Dallas to make sure he panders to the white law and order voters Hillary wants in November.

Shame Obama.

Barack Obama has had to thread a racial needle every day of his public life, and during his presidency he's had to thread that needle under unimaginable pressures brought to bear by unprecedented crises. He's had to try to gauge his words and actions in a way that he can be most effective as a president of all the people, and in the process he has offended whites for whom he is not conciliatory enough, and blacks for whom he is not angry enough.

I have not been happy with every action he's taken, and he was not angry and confrontational enough for me during this latest chain of events that had him trying to console the inconsolable and make sense of the incomprehensible.

If I had my way, he'd have been more Malcolm X than Martin King in his attitude toward the police.

But even as I got frustrated and angry and turned the channel, muttering "oh just shut the **** up!" to the image of Obama on the screen, even then I was pretty sure that man's heart is in the right place. I've never thought of him as a sell out or an Uncle Tom.

And I certainly don't think he owes any explanation or apology to big mouthed self-righteous white so-called liberals who think they know better than Obama how he should go about being black.
