8. THIS ^ if exactly what Bernie's 'establishment' comment was all about


and I love how he clarified it yesterday, like this.

Bernie cogently clarified exactly what he meant, and it makes perfect sense.

Bernie simply pointed out ...
1) his 100% rating by several groups that endorsed Hillary, and Hillary's rating was less than,
2) how it's puzzling to many observers when -- despite his 100% ratings -- Hillary gets
the endorsement instead of him, and
3) the contrast between the "grassroots" of these groups (which mostly support him) and the
groups' leadership which tend to have a cozy relationship with Hillary.

Lastly, he stated flatly "NO! I'm NOT calling PP, NARAL, et. al. "the Establishment"

It was a brilliant clarification, that kept him in the news cycle, to his benefit. Love this guy.
