If there was any doubt before [last night], there can be no longer: Bernie Sanders is a movement, and that movement will not and cannot be stopped. Despite the Democratic National Committee, the big Democratic funders, the New York Times and Washington Post; despite the pollsters and pundits and the Washington insiders and political operatives – despite an establishment that doesn't want to recognize what has happened to America and why this movement is essential to reclaiming our democracy and economy – Bernie will prevail and the political revolution will grow. Americans are joining up and joining together. Sooner or later – hopefully, sooner rather than later – we will succeed.
