Bernie Sanders has Hillary Clinton right where he wants her [View all]

"Sanders still has a shot. His support is growing, his opponent is increasingly unpopular and his supporters will finance his race. No regular candidate would leave the race in such a position. Ohio Governor John Kasich and Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), the GOP candidates trying to best Trump, would give their left arms to be where Sanders is.

The keepers of the failed consensus are aghast, Democratic officialdom nervous. Wall Street donors aflutter. Get used to it. There isn’t a whit of reason for Sanders to shut his campaign down. As the old gospel song puts it, the road ahead is hard. But he’s come too far to turn back now. And he is in no ways tired."
