      Senator Bernie Sanders just delivered one of the most moving and effective statements about our politics—what is necessary and what is possible—that will be heard during the course of the 2020 campaign.

      Bernie Sanders Spoke Today About His Heart Attack—and His Purpose

      In poignant and powerful language, the senator is making the connection between his recent hospitalization and the fight for Medicare for All.

      As he prepares to return to the 2020 campaign trail, Bernie Sanders is delivering a more personal and more focused message than at any time since he stepped onto the national stage in the spring of 2015. In a seven-minute, straight-to-camera video released Thursday morning by his campaign, the Vermont senator spoke poignantly about lying in his hospital bed last week and the emotions he felt after experiencing a heart attack—but he also did something more. Sanders signaled that he is prepared to run a race that frankly discusses his hospitalization, and that explains why he has chosen to keep campaigning at a point when pundits and political strategists are busy trying to write him out of the 2020 race.

      That was incredible. One of the most moving speeches from a politician in my lifetime.

      It is better to vote for what you want and not get it than to vote for what you don't want and get it.--Eugene Debs

      You can jail a revolutionary, but you can't jail the revolution.--Fred Hampton
