What We Need

Bernie Sanders just published an editorial in the Washington Post, and it is really good.

He immediately addresses the issue that has concerned me the most, that his campaign and supporters — with attacks on other progressives including Barney Frank and Hillary Clinton — had become a cult of personality (more about Sanders than about progressive goals):

As we head toward the Democratic National Convention, I often hear the question, “What does Bernie want?” Wrong question. The right question is what the 12 million Americans who voted for a political revolution want.

He lays it all out, and does an excellent job of describing what we should be fighting for.

This is the Bernie Sanders I love, who helped make it ok to be a progressive again. I am really glad he ran a strong campaign against Clinton, and I hope we see more of him in the general election, fighting the good fight.
