Bernie's responses are brilliant, as are Cenk Uygur's and Anna Kasparian's.

For those of you interested in pure political campaign strategy, the kind that works and not the kind that is idle speculation by armchair pundits, you really have to watch this clip from the Young Turks!

My contribution tactically boils down to Bernie asking his supporters to write either opinion/editorials and/or letters to the editor, and send them out to at least 5 newspapers.

This would be a tidal wave of public expression, something at this time in the cycle would be akin to dropping a brick in a full bathtub: for sure, the waves would hit the sides of the bathtub, and the media at large would be not able to continue to suppress his candidacy and warp his "chances" by prognosticating so shallowly, as the big-press corporations and Wall Street seem to want to continue to do... especially, by pushing the myth that Joe Biden is the front runner.

This, further, would wake up the DNC and the super delegates that they cannot subvert the Democratic nomination, like they did in 2016.

Keep in mind that most of the time, the editorial-page editor who reads such letters to the editor over the course of the next few months is usually either the person who writes the endorsements before the primaries, or is on an editorial board in large cities, which choose whom to endorse.

Editorial-page power creates a ripple effect, and unlike television advertising, doesn't cost the campaign a nickel, AND (MAYBE BEST OF ALL!) it comes from the heart of the individual letter-to-the-editor writer.

Please take the time to start this effort by writing your own op/ed or letter to the editor. This idea will only advance and blossom if Bernie himself asks this of his followers. A good idea has to start somewhere in order to be fully actualized.

Great idea. We need to spread the word and social media is the place to do it.

Could you personally start by writing your own letter to the editor and then share it with OpEdNews readers? If you keep it under 200 words, it will be published soon.

and how about this video of Bernie shooting baskets?

I was very disappointed with Bernie last night when he declined to criticize NObama when asked about his idiotic anti-progressive statement.

Bernie should have rammed it down NObama's throat.

That being said, Bernie 2020

Though I'm no Sanders supporter, the globalist stooge Obama and his wife need to just STFU and "run away" to their gated community. They and Kill...er Hillary (who had the election rigged)are the reason why the country/world must endure the Socialist POTUS King Con Don!

I cancelled my Netflix upon hearing Susan Rice was a Board member and the Obama's had multi-million $'s contracts. These buffoons have no positive influences to contribute and their opinions are full of hypocrisy and just plain hooey!

I didn't know yhat Trump was a socialist. Unless you meant socialism for banks, insurance companies, and corporations, and billionaires and millionaires too, who want the public and government to pay for their socio-economic/financial disasters and fund their projects.
