U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders thinks Omaha mayoral candidate Heath Mello is part of the Democratic Party of the future.

But some Democrats donít agree - they argue that Mello's opposition to abortion disqualifies him from being called a progressive. Sandersí endorsement of Mello sparked a national debate Thursday among Democrats that touched on the future direction of the party.

At a three-hour rally at the Baxter Arena with speakers from a variety of backgrounds and several musical interludes, Sanders laid out his vision for the country. And he said it involves a Democratic party that "stand(s) up for voters in 50 states, not just the West Coast and the East Coast."

"Omaha, are you ready for a political revolution?" he said.
