FEATURING JEFF COHEN – President Obama and Senator Elizabeth Warren have both formally endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. The moves appear to seal the end of the progressive path to the White House that Senator Bernie Sanders inspired among millions of Americans. But is it the end?
Sanders has said that he will help Clinton defeat Trump but he has also insisted on running in the Washington DC primary on Tuesday. Now, a petition is calling on Sanders to “continue to the convention” in Philadelphia and, “complete the process of fully representing the millions of people who’ve worked, donated and voted for you.”
