A case can be made that Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, although they’d never admit it, agree on far more than they disagree. Bill Press writing in The Hill (10 March):
Both champion universal health care, raising the minimum wage, raising taxes on the wealthy, wiping out student debt, making college affordable, if not free, and leading the fight against climate change.
With only slight variations on a theme, every single Democratic candidate in 2020, left or center, ran on the Sanders platform.
Whatever they choose, revolution or evolution, they’re both paths to the same progressive goals. And those goals were first set by Sanders in 2016.
That’s why I argue that Sanders has already won the Democratic primary.
