Watching @BernieSanders on @allinwithchris and something struck me:

For a long time, I viewed #Bernie through a veil of frustration and anger leftover from 2016. Now that I've worked on mending fences with fellow progressives, I see why he resonates.

Bringing younger voters and the disillusioned into the fold, getting them excited about politics, is crucial. We need a movement if we have any hope of confronting the far right menace.

One politician can't do it alone. It's about the people.
I'm trying to move past attachments to individual politicians so that I can focus on the issues. I've criticized Bernie on some things, and I still feel those critiques are valid. But I can say that for Hillary or any other politician. The key is to spark a progressive movement.
I identify with the policies and ideas being put forth by Warren, Sanders, AOC, etc., not Biden or the Dem establishment.

We're facing a historic threat to our democracy, to our rights, to our lives, by an emboldened, extremist GOP.

We will only prevail with bold progressivism.
