What is Bernie Sanders up to?

I sure don't know, and I'm sure that Hillary Clinton and her campaign managers are wondering too.

In today's New York Times, the independent socialist Senator from Vermont published a hard-hitting opinion-page piece attacking presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, but really targeting Democratic Party leaders, super delegates, and the Democrats' presumptive nominee Clinton -- though he carefully avoided naming her.

Significantly, Sanders, in an article headlined "Democrats Have to Wake Up," identified himself at the end of the article as "a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination."

The message is clear: Sanders is still in the race for the Democratic nomination.

The message is also clear in saying, in the wake of the stunning rejection of European Union membership by a majority of British voters who feel that globalization and the common and tariff-free borders of the EU have only hurt them:

"We need a president who will vigorously support international cooperation that brings the people of the world closer together, reduces hypernationalism and decreases the possibility of war. We also need a president who respects the democratic rights of the people, and who will fight for an economy that protects the interests of working people, not just Wall Street, the drug companies and other powerful special interests.
