A really inspiring and impressive rallying call from Sanders to his supporters, his first real statement after a heart attack took him off the campaign trail last week. It’s notable how effective Sander’s usual message of political revolution is when he ties it to personal experience. This is the first time I’ve really heard him talk about the future in these terms, it strikes me as a surprising acknowledgment of his own mortality for a candidate who hates talking about himself.
I’ve seen some polling indicating that he’s taken a hit from this cycle and the speculation around his health. That makes sense, but I do believe he may have an opportunity to gain momentum if he keeps speaking like this.
