'The goal here is to do what I think the Democratic establishment has not been very effective in doing,' said Sanders
Earlier this week my colleague Richard Eskow reported on the impact the populist progressive movement led by Bernie Sanders and others is having on the Democratic Party Platform to be voted on at the party’s national convention in Philadelphia later this month.
Now that Sanders has declared his support for Clinton, a senior Sanders campaign advisor maps the road ahead.
Sanders may have endorsed Clinton, but the groups supporting him are plotting a fight for progressive policies far beyond the 2016 election
Today, my hero, Bernie Sanders, endorsed Hillary Clinton, a woman that I truly believe is sociopathic, for the office of the President of the United States and then immediately the sun hid behind a cloud and it began to rain
Last weekend, as the nation reeled from the violence in Minneapolis, New Orleans and Dallas, the Democratic Platform Committee met in Orlando to debate the party’s pledges for the future. Once again, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and his delegates, despite some setbacks, made progress in trying to transform the party’s agenda. Where…
'Opposition to the job-killing TPP should not be controversial within the Democratic Party,' declares progressive advocacy group. So why is it?
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.

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.

This election could still mark a decisive turn in our politics, and our national life.
"We have begun the long and arduous process of transforming America – a fight that will continue tomorrow, next week, next year, and into the future."
If you actually read Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders speech to his supporters Thursday – rather than the news coverage of it – you will immediately grasp the importance of this weekend’s gathering in Chicago of about 3,000 progressive leaders and grassroots activists.
"Election days come and go but political revolutions are not dependent on election days," says Bernie Sanders
Democratic Party leaders' efforts to get Sanders to knuckle under are premature and anti-democratic.
