40. Another over-the-top headline writer. Do they do this purposely to stoke division?

It just gives carte blanche to the negative nellies to jump into this thread. Those that will never forgive Bernie for daring to run against, and take the polish off of, the chosen one last year. And then that he didn't just shut up and melt away. How dare he try and help the party do better? How dare he use his populism to attract new Democrat voters? (It may make him look good and not fit in with their "Bernie Bro" narrative)

I wish DU would sticky-post this quote from the article on their front page:

“If you are concerned with labels, you might bristle at the notion of a registered Independent jockeying for control over the direction of the Democratic Party — and there were certainly some in the party apparatus that expressed precisely this sentiment during the 2016 campaign cycle,” said Lynda Tran, a Democratic strategist.

“But if you’re focused on policy ideas over party labels you might welcome the inclusion of his voice, and frankly other voices too, at a time when the Democratic Party is under intense attack and working on the path forward."

“At the end of the day, Bernie Sanders may be a registered Independent, but he has always caucused with Democrats and there is no question he continues to enjoy strong support among many members of the Democratic Party,” Tran added.

The DNC has sought to harness energy from Sanders and unite the party after last year’s divisions."
