The Rev. Jesse Jackson was responsible for many programs to help black Americans and the poor, including Head Start, School Lunches, Operation Push, and the Rainbow Coalition. A supporter and mentee of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, he rose within the ranks of the Democratic Party in his own run for the presidential nomination years ago, only to be rebuffed by the party. Many party members distanced themselves from Jackson because of his “socialist” principles. He has come out on the right side of history, as will Sen. Bernie Sanders, presidency or no presidency. – word pond

On the second night, in his remorseless fashion, Sanders used his closing to lay down the marker for every candidate: “Nothing will change unless we have the guts to take on Wall Street, the insurance industry, the pharmaceutical industry, the military-industrial complex and the fossil fuel industry. If we don’t have the guts to take them on, we’ll continue to have plans, we’ll continue to have talk and the rich will get richer and everybody else will be struggling.” As voters try to sort through the Democratic contenders, that is a pretty good standard to measure them by.
