No one can say Bernie walked away from the fight after losing the presidential election. I did post about this a few days ago but worth posting this update.

Donald Trump’s attacks on Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the GOP’s never-ending parade of Faustian bargains that threaten democracy have eaten up so much of the news lately that historic decisions to democratize the Democratic Party’s nominating process have gone almost unnoticed.

The Democrats’ Unity Reform Commission—under pressure from progressive, labor, and pro-Bernie Sanders supporters in the party—voted at a meeting in Washington, D.C. last week to radically democratize the party’s presidential nominating process.

The most radical reform approved by the commission is a 60 percent reduction in the number of superdelegates. The superdelegates, unbound by voter decisions in primaries and caucuses, are party leaders that can support whomever they wish for president at the Democratic National Convention.

The superdelegates were the target of tremendous criticism last year because the overwhelming majority of them had actually pledged support for Hillary Clinton before any of the caucuses or primaries were held, giving what Sanders supporters saw as an unfair advantage to her candidacy over his.

The Unity Reform Commission was created at last July’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia as part of an attempt to preserve party unity in the 2016 elections. Clinton forces agreed to the demand for the commission’s creation in a move to help guarantee support for Clinton by disappointed Sanders voters. During that convention, also under pressure form the Sanders forces, delegates also adopted what was widely considered the most progressive platform in Democratic Party history. Many of those planks are reflected in the “Better Deal” the party is promoting now.
