Sam Smith - Julie Mason runs one of my favorite radio programs, so I was shocked today to hear her sound like all those Clinton-fed journalists who have been attacking Bernie Sanders for not giving up and being quiet. In fact, there is no historical reason for a second place candidate to fade before the convention. It's a widely watched TV show and a wonderful time to make your points. Further, you get to fight for the sort of platform you want.
Besides, Bernie wants to move from the election to a movement. There is nothing silly about this. Sanders is the realest Democrat we have had in such a key position since the Great Society. Led by Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, the party has moved to GOP Lite. But the generational gap in the voting is evidence that this crowd is on its way out and the young want something different and better. They'll have to put up with Hillary Clinton for awhile, but over the long run laying out a better plan for the Democrat's future is an act to be blessed and not cursed.
