"Our Revolution"

You would think that now that the Democratic party has a nominee, all Democrats would be concentrating on the upcoming general election that might be won by Trump. Not Bernie Sanders (but then, he's not so much a Democrat, I guess). I received an email from his campaign today (does he still have a campaign?) asking me for money so that "Our Revolution" can defeat Debbie Wasserman Schultz ...



Many of you already know that I've endorsed a candidate, Tim Canova, who is challenging the former head of the Democratic Party Debbie Wasserman Schultz in Florida. This race is very important for Our Revolution because if we can win this tough fight in Florida, it will send a clear message about the power of our grassroots movement that will send shockwaves through the political and media establishments.

[...]

The recent emails leaked from Democratic Party staff showed that under Debbie Wasserman Schultz, DNC staff were not exactly fair and even-minded during the presidential primary. What was revealed wasn't much of a shock to us, because we knew all along that the establishment wasn't on our side.

But now that Debbie Wasserman Schultz has resigned we have the opportunity to transform the Democratic Party and open up its doors to working people and young people — people who want real change. Democrats must make it crystal clear that their party is prepared to take on Wall Street and the powerful corporate interests whose greed is doing so much harm to our country. We must stand with Americans who are working longer hours for lower wages, the uninsured, students leaving school deeply in debt and all those worried about climate change ...


Jeez, Bernie, just let it go.

Frankly, I like DWS, I guess she had to take one for the team. Seems like a tough lady though, I'm sure she'll be back

I don't know much about her except for what's been in the recent news, but it does seem like Bernie has a too deep antipathy for her.
