Can Sen. Sanders Win the Nomination

The Bernie Sanders Situation

At the link above is a decent article on Sen. Sanders' situation as of now.  The Socialist Worker article has some good information and insights.

This is what campaigns are supposed to be about -- process -- and "pathways" as the article puts it.  We are all on some great path just now in America.  There is a change from the old way of doing things to something more just.  Change is coming in fits and starts.  But for the moment, overall it feels more like real change, not just the campaign slogan of 2008.

Sanders' campaign has rekindled the spark of rebellion that has been flickering since the Great Recession hit. It's up to all of us to build the organizations and social movements that can shield the flame from those who will try to extinguish it--starting with the leaders of the party in which Sanders has chosen to run.
