Bravo, Jules! Let's face it:

Bravo, Jules!

Let's face it: Bernie Sanders has changed the rules and the playing field.

Socialists can adopt a Sanders model - and engage in some real efforts - or they can demand a pure/ideal alternative. Essential actions outside the Democratic Party (e.g., the demonstrations we've seen over the last three weeks) AND inside the Dem Party are both possible and desirable.

If the medium-term results are a Dem Party that looks and acts like a soft social-democratic entity, that's not insignificant. Socialists need not lose their souls in the process; they can actually build a Left. The American working class deserves as much.
