Sanders lost to Clinton who lost to Trump. Both are well admired, well qualified, strongly progressive candidates who lost. Instead of the primary being relitigated constantly, let us concede that both candidates were flawed and both failed at their respective goals.
How do we as a movement move past a candidate driven model and towards an issues driven model like the religious right and economic right have? How do we create a generation of activists excited about issues and working towards candidates that advance those issues? What should those issues be and which voters should they target? How do we do this in all 50 states? How do we do this in our own state and community which is too frequently Democratic in Name Only or Liberal Except Where it Affects My Bottom Line?
