You do realize I was getting — and still sometimes get — constant comments about how Bernie and his supporters cost Hillary the election, right? You do realize Hillary still resents the fact that he had the audacity to run against her? But yeah, how dare I assume they’d pull that same stunt again.

What — other than offer up “Task forces” that Biden is telling his donors in private are essentially meaningless — has Biden done to “compromise” with the left? And please, I don’t want to hear “well Bernie lost anyways”. He had the largest, most unprecedented grassroots campaign organization in history, so yes, Biden should have something to offer them. What has he offered?
