The Democratic Party hierarchy is not hiding it’s contempt for progressive political leaders in the party. They believe that acting like Republicans is the only way of beating the real Republicans. They are wrong, of course. But you can’t alienate the Wall St. donors. Because money is what rules politics. Progressives believe otherwise.
It is an insult to Bernie Sanders speaking the first night of the convention. He should nominating Biden on the last night. He won the 2nd most delegates. Sanders si speaking the same night as a non-politician Michelle Obama and a “Conservative” Republican, John Kasich, who is no longer in office. At the very least Sanders should be the keynote speaker Tuesday night–by himself. Not Jill Biden.
