I have posted several times about what I, as a supporter of Bernie Sanders, wanted as the formal nomination of Hillary Clinton approached.
Of course, there was a lot of public commentary/handwringing on what it would take for Sanders to put his support behind Clinton.
The Democratic party platform talks unfolded with Sanders’ supporters making the case for a more progressive approach on several major issues.
Amazingly, they prevailed in a number of areas and, last Tuesday, Senator Sanders appeared at a rally with Clinton and gave his support for her to win the presidency and for the implementation of this more progressive agenda.
Importantly, the Democratic platform addresses many of the problems of lower and middle class folks, while the Republican platform still relies on “trickle-down” policies.
As the Clinton campaign slogan states, we really are “stronger together.”
That togetherness is not meant to be about Democrats, but about those of all political affiliations and those who aren’t voters. It’s meant for all races and all spiritual beliefs. It’s meant for all genders, all ages, all areas of the country.
We need togetherness now more than ever.
