It isn’t over until we win. This explains why Bernie is still out there, fighting for medicare for all, while most Democrats are doing diddly squat outside of whining. Because we are still trying to win, and they are still crying about their well deserved loss.
It’s a slogan I quite like, because it gives me hope for the future, long term.
My short term hope is a court case which begins tomorrow. It’s the class action lawsuit that was brought against the DNC back in June, before the Democratic convention even, by people who donated to the DNC and are pissed off that that money went straight into the Clinton campaign. The suit claims that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the head of the DNC at that time, and her staff overtly violated article four, section 5 of the DNC Charter, which says “The Chairperson shall exercise impartiality and evenhandedness between the Presidential candidates and campaigns. The Chairperson shall be responsible for ensuring that the national officers and staff of the Democratic National Committee maintain impartiality and evenhandedness during the Democratic Party Presidential nominating process.”
I sure hope the court rules against the DNC. I doubt that anybody’s going to jail, but if it’s at least entered into the official record that they cheated, that will make things a lot easier.
If the court finds against us, which is a definite possibility, (right is on our side, but courts are capricious institutions, no doubt about it) then our struggle will continue. Because it will not be over until we’ve won.
