Here are words of wisdom from Bernie Sanders' cameraman, Mikki Willis, who has had a unique opportunity to observe Bernie and Jane up close. He explains, with hopeful sanity, how Bernie's endorsement of Clinton makes perfect sense in the overall scheme. Franklin Roosevelt found himself in a similar situation to Bernie, and got the nomination after he endorsed his opponent Al Smith.
Mikki Willis offers some extraordinary insights:
FDR had a "tremendous base of support," winning the majority of popular support, and he was clearly the people's choice. But "the party apparatus was dead set against Roosevelt getting the nomination."
Roosevelt, of course, got the nomination - but it was unexpected, in what might be called a miraculous series of events.
There's always hope.
