10. Bernie is lovable, but his time has passed. No question. That doesn't mean he isn't somewhat

 

correct about this. Having been a die-hard Bernie supporter for the 2016 primary, I can honestly say that the Washington Post was pretty darned biased against him at that time, especially Chris Cillizza.

Part of that is just the normal political process, but clearly a large part of it is based on the internal divide within the party around "economics". For me personally, that is troubling.

What has always attracted me to the Democratic Party is it's tolerance. But sometimes my attraction gets tested.
