You could not be further from the truth.
It does not matter if he wins when he has the youth mobilised and rallied around ideas.
He's old as fuck so he has no illusions that he'll get his ideas through himself.
That's why he emphasises the movement over the person.
He rallies around himself the losers under capitalism and the youth who see themselves betrayed by the old.
That's his legacy and he will campaign until the day he dies.
He came in on the Civil Rights novement, and you best believe he'll go out leading the next thing.
He already dragged public discourse far, far left on social and economic issues, forcing them onto the agenda and trailblazing for those to follow.
He told you, not him, us.
This is about paving the way for the JusDems who just entered Congress.
So when they turn 35 they get to campaign on the left with popular issues.
This is the long game of forcing the DNC to move or die.
Not President Sanders, President Cortez.
