I like that Bernie keeps reminding us it is 'not about him'...

I really admire the parts of Senator Sander's speeches where he reminds us 'it's not about him'

It is really about US. About all the progressive values we hold dear. About the great social movements, some of which we've witnessed in our lifetime, under attack by forces that would strip them away. About those of us who remember that the America they want to drag us back to ("Make America great again" was not that great for a huge portion of Americans, like Native Americans, slaves, immigrants, women, people of color, the poor, people with disabilities, LGBTs...

Bernie is just the unlikely guy that is reminding us to hold fast, to not let up in the struggle for progress towards a country that makes good on the lofty promises of the Founders of our great experiment in democracy.
