10 years ago in March 2006, then-Senator Barack Obama campaigned for Bernie Sanders in Vermont.
Chuck Schumer, the Chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee — Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada — and the Democratic National Committee chairman (and former Vermont governor) Howard Dean — had all endorsed Bernie Sanders. They didn't in 2016.
Back in 1988, when the Reverend Jesse Jackson had ran for President in a very close contest with Governor Michael Dukakis, the mayor of Burlington Vermont, Bernie Sanders, had endorsed Jackson, who had said at the time, "When it mattered, Bernie stepped across the color line."
Meanwhile, Bill Clinton had endorsed Jackson's opponent, Michael Dukakis. But Bernie's endorsement of Jackson ended up being an ungrateful slap in his face, as Jackson didn't return the favor in 2016.
Now all the corporate Democrats endorse Hillary Clinton. But Bernie still has us.
New York did their best, but now the States like California and Pennsylvania
are going to have try a little harder to save our country from the plutocrats.
