For me, having done all I could to advance Bernie Sanders' position over the past 4 years, this is the first Mainstream quasi-endorsement for Bernie that I have seen. It is not all-out positive, but for its city of origin (Toledo, Ohio), I believe it to be quite significant as a harbinger or bell weather indicator for what is to come on the editorial pages of the great state of Ohio, which is where 7 US Presidents were born, second only to Virginia, with 8 Presidents' birthplaces.
