Up until now, when asked if he would support Hillary Clinton were she to win the Democratic Party nomination, Bernie has always said yes. Without qualification. Full stop. Until now. On Wednesday, in an interview with Cenk Uygur on The Young Turks, Sanders listed policy demands he would make of Clinton, hinting that he would make these demands before endorsing her. Bernie’s demands of Clinton would include becoming a champion of a single-payer health care system, tuition free public colleges and universities, a $15 an hour minimum wage, and waging “a vigorous effort to address climate change.” Sanders also made clear that beyond promises, “What we need is to create a movement which holds elected officials accountable and not let them flip (on issues).” The new Bernie Sanders Strategy. Will he withhold an Endorsement to Hillary Clinton if Clinton does not meet his demands? We explore that issue and more on today’s Acronym podcast.
