Well, not my Hil. But there it is: a gloomy, tetchy media trying to stir things up on the left, led by that right wing group conspiracy known as the Democratic party. Bernie is going too far. Bernie's thuggish supporters are on a rampage. Hillary is a sacred cow and Bernie is trying to hang her on a meat hook in the bloody refrigerator room.
John Cassidy, as always, offers a reasoned response. Sanders is not repeat not trying to destroy Hillary Clinton, he writes.
... Most of Sanders’s supporters will take their lead from him. And despite some bitter exchanges between his campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, and the chair of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, over what happened in Nevada, Sanders is well aware of the stakes in November. “Donald Trump represents a whole lot that I passionately hate,” he told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow a couple of weeks ago. “If I’m not the candidate, I will do everything I can to make sure that Donald Trump does not become President of the United States.”
Those don’t sound like the words of someone intent on widening the rifts in the Democratic Party. With June 7th only a few weeks away, we will know soon how Sanders plans to proceed during the denouement of the primary season. In the meantime, don’t be surprised to see more acrimony between his camp and Hillary Clinton’s. ...NewYorker
