26. Context please. Where are you writing his name? Why? Who will see it?

Why do you feel you really have to put any letter after it?

Actually, never mind: This is the reality. He is a man who, for most of his life, ran as an independent because he believed that anything else would require too many compromises--and I don't mean the kind that is productive for voters. However, he is running for President as a Democrat and has been recognized as such by his state party and by the DNC. If writing about him in that connection, I would use (D) because that's how he will get ballot access. However, don't be surprised if he continues to say he is independent, small i, because he is, in the sense of not beholden. What ever support the DNC is giving anyone, other than ballot access, it's not going to Bernie. Not so far, anyway, To the contrary, the DNC has tried to raise money off his run.'

That's all I know.
