Democratic Party liberals have been concerned not with an egalitarian reckoning to unite the have-nots against the haves but with inclusion: bringing different “interest groups” into the professional class while managing everyone else’s expectations downward. --Jacobin

NOTE: Counting Delegates Honestly, Clinton Won

Clinton went +5 (6-1) in the Virgin Islands, and +12 (36-24) in Puerto Rico, over the weekend. She will almost certainly net a majority of pledged delegates on Tuesday. If she does, what's Sanders' argument? That the supers should back him instead, and undo the will of the voters, because he's polling better than her against Trump in some polls? That would be, frankly, crazy. - promoted by david
