"The Democratic Party, IMHO, compromised too many of its principles in 2016 when it nominated Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders."

The "Democratic Party" didn't nominate HRC. Democratic voters did. I'm a huge Bernie fan but he's run twice against moderates and lost both times. Both times he found it difficult to get black voters to punch their ballots for him. Maybe there's a message there for all of us.

"I sincerely believe Bernie would have won PA, MI and WI in 2016, as well as all the states Clinton won. That would have made him president."

He couldn't even get a majority of Democrats to vote for him to run for the job.

"the effective campaigner that Bernie [is]"

Which explains why he's won two primary races for POTUS, right?

"Clinton who probably would have governed effectively "

And we wouldn't, at this moment, be talking about the utter elimination of a woman's right to choose, would we?
