As smirky and snarky as all of this from Leonhardt might possibly sound to fierce Bernie supporters, I tell you this: please realize that this is coming from the NY Times, which has historically impugned just about everything about Bernie, in just about every way possible.
I have always deduced that this stance derived from Sanders' opposition to Billionaires, Wall Street, and the American corporate kleptocracy, so for the Times to advance towards a real understanding and potentially truthful journalism: this is a serious and positive breakthrough.

Sanders has a real shot of winning the Democratic nomination. Only a couple of months after he suffered a mild heart attack, that counts as a surprise. On the new episode of "The Argument," Ross Douthat, Michelle Goldberg and I talk about the reasons for Sanders's strong position, as well as about his strengths and weaknesses.
