Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders's campaign is raising money to help send his delegates to Philadelphia next month for the Democratic National Convention.
What a week for those of us who support Bernie. I almost typed Senator Bernie Sanders, but then pulled back to re-type Bernie because even formalizing his title and his name seems somehow a concession. Bernie was not defeated. The movement for climate, economic and social justice was not defeated. And…
'They want real change in this country,' Bernie Sanders writes in Post op-ed, and 'they want it now.'
My supporters and I want real change in this country.
Some politicians and commentators say that Bernie Sanders is losing leverage because he hasn’t conceded the Democratic primary to front-runner Hillary Clinton. To believe that is to misunderstand both the candidate and his supporters. Sanders received a mandate in “defeat” that most politicians never achieve in victory.
Democratic Party liberals have made quite a show of their desire for Bernie Sanders to leave the presidential race so that, the story goes, Hillary Clinton can focus her energy solely on the looming threat of Donald Trump.

Democratic Party leaders' efforts to get Sanders to knuckle under are premature and anti-democratic.
'We will take our fight for social, economic, racial, and environmental justice to Philadelphia,' senator declares
'Your courage in taking on the political establishment has emboldened millions of us to stand up and demand our voices be heard.'
Can we actually achieve a more just America as one of the outcomes of this political revolution? Yes. I believe we can.
'We need a foreign policy based on building coalitions... [not] perpetual warfare in the Middle East'
Bernie can get a lot done without the support of the House of Representatives, and it's almost certain that his coattails will help down ticket Senate candidates to take back the senate and reduce the Republican advantage in the House.
Despite pressure from party establishment on Sanders to drop out of the race, most Democratic voters want the senator to keep running
The notion of a one-on-one debate with a Republican presidential contender has long intrigued the Democratic presidential contender.
