Inside the bitter last days of Bernie's revolution

For better and for worse, Sanders made all the big decisions.

By EDWARD-ISAAC DOVERE and GABRIEL DEBENEDETTI 06/07/16 11:26 PM EDT Updated 06/08/16 12:33 AM EDT


Thereís no strategist pulling the strings, and no collection of burn-it-all-down aides egging him on. At the heart of the rage against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party, the campaign aides closest to him say, is Bernie Sanders.

It was the Vermont senator who personally rewrote his campaign managerís shorter statement after the chaos at the Nevada state party convention and blamed the political establishment for inciting the violence.

He was the one who made the choice to go after Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz after his wife read him a transcript of her blasting him on television.

He chose the knife fight over calling Clinton unqualified, which aides blame for pulling the bottom out of any hopes they had of winning in New York and their last real chance of turning a losing primary run around.

2. He ran a nasty, low down campaign. He knew she wouldn't fight back.

What a Bully! Just like his death threatening, chair throwing supporters.

Now on to even worse! Trump and his supporters.
