Good stuff.  I watched about two hours of it with my sons.  They watched stunned in amazement, and I thought it was great to see Mr. Sanders be so passionate, and eloquent, about his position.  It was good to see him use his rights in objecting publicly, and not doing so behind closed doors.  Cynics may say he wasn't really stopping a vote, but they are missing the point.  Good stuff . . .
Don't you think that's some information I'd like to know?  I like Tacos . . .

I watched the CBS Evening News and they did not say a word about this.  It's a shame.  This is how you filibuster. Not behind closed doors.

Democrats need to have the principle and backbone of Bernie Sanders, who is actually a socialist.
