Bernie was on SOTU this morning and he didn't take CNN’s bait to drive a wedge among Democrats. After addressing the e-mail leak and sharing his obvious disappointment, he pivoted right back to what’s important for all Democrats to remember. We have to do everything we can to defeat Donald Trump.
I was very impressed by how the Senator handled this interview and by David Axelrod’s account on Twitter he did this everywhere this morning.
Masterful and leading by example.
The worst thing we can do as Democrats is, head into our convention fighting with each other. Our convention has to be the complete opposite of their disaster of a convention. Bernie knows this and this is why he pivoted right back to where the conversation should be, defeating Trump and unifying the party.
He also answered George Stephanoulos on This Week on why his supporters will not support Trump. He was magnificent in his response.
We are a unified party, unlike the GOP and if we stick together and work hard to improve our party and yes this includes incorporating a lot of the great ideas from the Sanders campaign, we can win back everything.
We need to show Americans that are watching that we are the party they should choose. If we do this, we can change America. Bernie Sanders understands this all too well. Let’s follow his lead.
