Why medicare for all is a no brainer. Of course, it is the compassionate thing to do, but economically it works in every way.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda. Sad! Bernie has been out and about visiting many of the states that trump carried.
Lately, I've noticed the election is being rehashed (maybe it's because Hillary has written a book --'What Happened'). Personally, I think that could have waited a while longer. I've recently read a number of articles blaming Bernie and his supporters for trump's win. I would submit the blame should be owned by the Democratic party and HRC, herself. She was a flawed candidate from day one, especially considering the collective mentality of the American voter. She just didn't fit the need; that's the bottom line. In my opinion, the handwriting was on the wall. Practically anyone else could have trounced trump. With the correct opponent, trump should have failed miserably.
Anyway, whatever, we're in a world of shit with the madman in the oval office now.
Here's Bernie out and about. short video

Bernie's the most popular politician in the U.S.
Yeah, he could have won. For better or worse, we would not be dealing with the mentally, spiritually, ethically, morally, intellectually, socially damaged, fascist nut job president we have now, and we would not be watching the disintegration of whatever gains we, as a country and culture, have accrued over many, many decades. He is stripping all that is good/healthy from the framework of our society. He has unleashed and encouraged the demons that already, obviously, existed.

This is an excellent article that, definitively, correctly shows the difference between HRC and Bernie Sanders. I didn't think she could do anything else to make me dislike her more and and further erode my respect for her. But, boy, here it is. She has stated 2 of the things that got her through the election loss are yoga and chardonnay. It, certainly, sounds, to me, like she could use some more yoga and a lot more chardonnay. This is so damn ill timed, number one, and number two, it's, from what I've read, one long 500 page whine. Who the fuck has time to care when this country is being systematically torn asunder. Let's talk about that and find a remedy and present a unified front of some kind. Gee, that's what Sanders is and has been doing, for the most part.
I remember when she sent her daughter (early on in the campaign) to Chicago to blatantly lie about Bernie's health care position. I was alarmed and surprised. In Ohio, she stated she was not a progressive, but a pragmatic something or something "that gets things done". (there are videos--so she altered her pitch to assuage her audience--Bernie didn't). Sanders has been professing the same platform since he got into politics in Vermont--he hasn't deviated. When she went to W. Virginia, she completely absconded with and presented Bernie's infrastructure plan, verbatim. Bernie didn't tell her not to go to Wisconsin or Michigan. She didn't have to bring Obama into her loss.
She secured the votes of all the super delegates before the campaign. The Bernie Bro issue was, probably, bots to a great degree. It's now proven the russian hackers were very actively disparaging her (but she left herself wide open, totally). She was a never-never on single payer healthcare. Bernie brought her way to the left of her original positions. She was being honest in Ohio when she told that group she is "not a progressive". When did you ever here her talk about supporting unions--but she sure took their money. Why did she never, genuinely, fight for the poor while campaigning?
What a shame this is, and it is 100% self serving. Then let's think about the 2,000 dollar charge to hear her sell her book. Some things never change. This is disgusting. Yes, shameful.

Bernie brings it on, and he's garnering substantial support.

This just blows my mind. During the '16 presidential campaign, Howard Dean was totally pro HRC. After clinton got the promise of almost all the super delegate votes BEFORE she even began campaigning, Howard Dean maintained that, despite Bernie Sanders winning a state, as in Vermont (both Sanders and Dean are from Vermont), those promised super delegate votes were to remain in clinton's column. Now he's so pro Sanders????
