So this seems to be the end of the road for Bernie. It went much further than assumed by most “serious” analysts and gave a shock to the “responsible” Democrats. Now that the candidacy of Hillary is secured, the system still has a task to complete: to prevent the juvenile social base mobilized following the […]
