Bernie Sanders fans have every reason to be disappointed and angry. We now know, thanks to WikiLeaks, that not only did the Democratic National Committee staff strongly prefer Hillary Clinton, but they sat around thinking up new ways to hit Sanders, including contemplating making him elaborate on his religious beliefs. They scheduled the minimal number of early debates and put them in the most inconvenient timeslots. In a party without super delegates, the entire narrative throughout the primary would be different.Not only did Sanders suffer from DNC shenanigans, it turns out the Clinton campaign was siphoning campaign money that was supposed to be split with state campaigns. Bernie and his followers have every right to rage against a system rigged against him, but he folded like a card table.
