Former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders offered a compelling argument this week to those of his supporters still hesitant about a Hillary Clinton presidency.
He explained that the success of the revolution relies not on who is president but on the people continuing to fight for progressive ideals.
Armand Aviram—who said his personal rise from unemployed Sanders campaign volunteer to NowThis election producer is a ‘direct result’ of the Vermont senator’s political revolution—asked the former Democratic candidate to explain ‘how your political revolution continues under a Hillary Clinton administration’.
‘It’s not my political revolution – it’s your political revolution’ Sanders began – calling his supporters’ efforts during the Democratic primary ‘perhaps the most consequential campaign in the modern history of America’.
‘Ideas that at one point were thought to be crazy and fringe are now incorporated in the Democratic National Platform’ Sanders said.
‘You did that’.
Holding up a copy of the Democratic National Platform Sanders noted that at least 80 percent of the policies are ‘what we believe in’.
‘Where do we go from here?’ he asked.
‘We implement this’.
