    >>> “… Sanders not only had to run against Clinton but also against the entire Democratic Establishment.”

    Who, by the way, changed many of the state primary election rules to exclude independent and would-be Sanders voters.

    • JoAnn Chateau

      Yes. Do you have any thoughts, or have you heard anything, about how this may impact Clinton’s nomination? I wonder if she and the DNC will be able to brush it off easily.

      • Robert A. Vella

        The Washington Post and ABC have picked-up the story, but the DNC and the Clinton campaign have not responded to any inquiries as of yet. See:

        http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/emails-released-wikileaks-show-dnc-aid-hillary-clinton/story

        https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/07/22/on-eve-of-democratic-convention-wikileaks-releases-thousands-of-documents-about-clinton-the-campaign-and-internal-deliberations/

        While some Sanders supporters are now calling for Bernie to withdrawal his endorsement of Hillary, I expect little fallout from the leak unless they really start causing a commotion. You know how I feel about the Democratic Party and corporate media establishments; they’ll sweep this under the rug if they can.

      • JoAnn Chateau

        Yes. They’re good at sweeping things under the rug. But the timing. With so many demonstrators in Philly… I hope it will explode into a multi-media information storm. THIS cannot be kept off the airwaves… even though it’s about the airwaves… except… but… we’re like a 3rd world country where the “news” is controlled. At least we have the Internet.

      • Robert A. Vella

        I had expected more visible protests in Cleveland against the GOP convention; but, then I read reports of armed squads of police roaming the perimeter and intimidating the demonstrators. If this tactic worked there, it’ll surely be used in Philly too.

        I checked a few mainstream media home pages this morning to see if any were running with the Wikileaks story. There was hardly any mention of it at all. The fix appears to be in.

        Researching a post, about 2 weeks ago I tried looking for info about the RNC demos. Hard to find, but there was plenty of info for DNC demos. It gave me the strong impression DNC demonstrations may have more participants, be more organized, and have more big names (Jill Stein, for instance) than the RNC demos. No doubt, like you say, they will also be hemmed-in and under-reported. How do you get a revolution going in this country?

      • Robert A. Vella

        That’s precisely the point, they are determined to stop a revolution from starting in this country no matter how peaceful and beneficial it might be.

      • JoAnn Chateau

        The status quo never wants to move over.

      • JoAnn Chateau

        Thanks for the ABC link, Robert. Hadn’t seen that one. The article doesn’t have a TV video clip — or, at least one that coordinates with the title and text. At first, I just watched the video, about Clinton’s VP pick, Tim Kaine (happy couple!). Me thinks, many will miss this info nugget.

      • Rosaliene Bacchus

        JoAnn, time will tell if the DNC played right into the hands of a Trump presidency by denying Sanders a fair chance of becoming the DNC nominee.

      • JoAnn Chateau

        Sometimes I wonder if the DNC would rather have Trump than Bernie for President. Bernie is the only one who would disrupt the Big Money party of The Establishment.
