If youre shocked by the fact that Bernie Sanders didnt acknowledge Hillary Clintons historic clinching of the Democratic nomination Tuesday night, you probably havent read the captivating new article in Politico, this week, Inside the bitter last days of Bernies revolution, in which its clear that Bernie isnt anywhere near the headspace required to give Hillary the credit shes more than earned today. He congratulated her, and that was it. We might not see anything more than that, at least until next week at the earliest if at all. Well circle back to this presently.
If the reporting in Politico is accurate, Bernie isnt a happy revolutionary these days. The once noble, principled champion of the people has apparently been consumed by ego and bitterness, and its not all surprising to those of us whove been following along with an objective eye
Going nuts because such face-to-face meetings in someones home during campaigns are frequently the harbingers of a running mate announcement. Warren is wildly popular amongst Democrats, especially those who put a priority on fighting income inequality and the shenanigans of Wall Street and other capitalist vultures who have done so much damage to our economy. Because of this, theres been chatter for months about Warren as a potential running mate for Clinton, to shore up Clintons image as a true progressive and to keep these issues at the forefront of the campaign as Bernie Sanders does his fade-out.
But theres also been a chorus of skeptics, and Ive been one. Not because of any objection to Warren herself! On the contrary, Im a massive Elizabeth Warren fangirl who pins gold stars and hearts to her picture that I have hanging over my bed.
