Obama was a far stronger opponent and he had substantial support from one side of the Democratic party - including Kerry, Kennedy, Daschle, and Durbin. Sanders had no one for a long time - and now has just Senator Merkley and a few people in the House.

Not to mention, Obama had more name recognition -- and all of it was good - from his 2004 speech.

In addition, Obama had many of Daschle's and then Kerry's operatives. Sanders had Weaver, who owned a comic book store and a relatively middle level Tad Devine.
