Clinton Faces Open Revolt … Don't Take 'Sandernistas' for Fools

It’s finally here! The quadrennial explanation for why Americans don’t deserve the fruits of their own labor, or — as it’s more commonly known — the Democratic National Convention. There’s a lot riding on this convention for Hillary Clinton, who is looking up at Donald Trump in several of the most recent national polls aggregated by RealClearPolitics.

Unfortunately, the convention is off to the worst possible start for Clinton and her fellow Democrats — and it may get worse if Bernie Sanders and his delegates aren't planning to make party unity their top priority.

I asked the most reliable Democratic strategist I know if Sanders supporters would keep their cool all week. Then, I shook that Magic 8-Ball. It answered, "Outlook not so good." Given the news cycle going into the convention, I'm inclined to agree.
This weekend, Wikileaks treated us all to some "damn" emails that Bernie Sanders and his supporters won't be sick and tired of hearing about any time soon. Sanders spent months arguing that the Democratic primary system is rigged. Then, on "Face the Nation" on May 29, he said it's not rigged, it's just "dumb."
