Bernie Sanders isn't too happy these days with the party he ran to lead in 2016. And he wants to make sure you know it.
In a lengthy -- and very good -- New York Times Magazine piece on the future of the Democratic Party, Sanders was asked what the party stands for. Here's his response:
You're asking a good question, and I can't give you a definitive answer. Certainly there are some people in the Democratic Party who want to maintain the status quo. They would rather go down with the Titanic so long as they have first-class seats.
That's remarkable. Not only did Sanders run for president in 2016 -- and win almost two dozen states! -- but he also is now a member of the Democratic Senate leadership thanks to Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer. And, when asked one of the simplest questions in all of politics -- what does your party stand for -- he admits he can't really answer it.
