We already knew how bad Bill and Hillary Clinton were regarding Wall Street money, but this is clearly something they want to put in their past and was only one example where it was actually caught on tape.
Sanders often says he took on “the most powerful political machine in America,” by which he means the Clintons. He’s really fighting the whole Democratic Party: White House, Congress, DNC, elite media and, sad to say, national progressive groups.

That he’s done so in 14 states — 15 counting Iowa-and fought four more to a draw is a miracle — and a sign their days are truly numbered.
