Blame the Democratic Party. They rigged the nomination process against the truly popular candidate - now they reap what they have sown. Hopefully, in the coming months, we can watch them implode and be replaced by something that is actually democratic.

This is the first place on the interwebs I have seen someone put a figure on the size of the crowd last night. One thing not mentioned anywhere: the number of people turned away from the event -- security was MUCH tighter than the average airport. Anyone with a bag, purse or backpack larger than about 4" square was rejected. This disproportionally affected women (purses!) and I saw many families with children turn back as the woman wasn't about to throw her purse in the trash (although a few did). Combine this with the mile-long
line (they didn't open a second door until approximately 5:45) and they should be grateful for those who did attend. Go Bernie!
