I have just this minute finished watching Bernie's concession speech. It was, I thought, the best speech I have heard him give. Lord, let him be right that he, and we who supported him, have won the ideological battle. Now we must support Joe Biden, who, on the best day of his long career, could not have given such a speech. Sitting here in a comfortable version of house arrest, which will continue for at least two more months, I have made a personal pledge to myself to do whatever I can to advance the vision Bernie articulated.
My first great political disappointment came fify-nine years ago, the day after the Bay of Pigs fiasco. There have been so many since that I have lost count. One of these days, I am going to win one.
