To the editor:
Our Senator Bernie Sanders deserves a special shout of thanks from citizens of Vermont, and indeed all Americans, for his dignified and coherent role in the recent election. If Bernie had acted like Trump – petulant and self-absorbed – the Democrats would have been badly split and we would have ended up with Trump for another four years.
Instead, Bernie understood the vital importance of maintaining a workable degree of unity among Democrats in support of Joe Biden’s election. It was a fine line he had to draw – holding to his progressive principles while endorsing the Biden-Harris ticket. The overarching goal, as he stated frequently, was to remove the worst and most dangerous president in American history.
