|Don't Burn The Bern... Bernie Sanders vows to knock Hillary Clinton off her perch.|
There's a civil war in the Republican Party. But it's mild compared to the civil war in the Democratic Party.
As Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) prepares for tonight's debate, his campaign will likely take the gloves off and go after Hillary Clinton and Martin O'Malley.
Tonight's debate will be featured on ABC. The debate isn't going to be the circus atmosphere that brought Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) into the limelight, but it will interesting.
Clinton is leading nationally in the polls and it's starting look like she's being crowned early and the Sanders campaign is warning the Democrats to not jump the gun again!
The campaign had cannon fired staffers after it was discovered that some of the staffers were peaking into the data of Clinton supporters. The DNC laid the hammer of the Sanders campaign. They stripped him of his access to voter data.

The campaign manager Jeff Weaver held a press conference Friday telling the junk food media that the campaign will not tolerate the DNC's inept leadership and their blatant attempts to sabotage Bernie. They said if the DNC don't restore it's date, they'll going to the federal court.
The DNC agreed to restore access soon after the Sanders campaign made good on its threat to file a lawsuit but the two sides described the development in very different ways, reports the Washington Post. The Sanders campaign said the DNC had "capitulated" and "reversed its outrageous decision," while the DNC's statement said it had decided to restore access because the Sanders campaign had agreed to "fully cooperate with the continuing DNC investigation of this breach."
The issue has caused angry words to be exchanged ahead of Saturday night's debate, the AP reports. The Clinton campaign seemed especially annoyed by a Sanders fundraising email accusing the DNC of "tipping the scales" for Clinton. "They stole data as a reason to raise money for their campaign," Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said, per Politico. He said the breach was far more than the "inadvertent glimpse into our data" the Sanders campaign has described. "It's outrageous to suggest that our campaign 'stole' any data," countered Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs. "What is true is the data we collected and need to run a winning campaign is now being stolen from us by a DNC dominated by Clinton people."
The Sanders campaign is totally pissed at the Democratic National Committee. The DNC chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) is a huge supporter of Hillary Clinton. She basically is slick dissing Sanders and O'Malley by cutting the debates to six and limiting fundraising to the candidates. And these debates on Saturday are low viewed.
It's no surprise that 3/4 of the Democrats support Hillary over Bernie. Those supporters are the "believers". They believe that Clinton can win the White House. This would be Clinton's second round for the nomination. That would make her a perennial candidate. With the relentless baggage from the conservative foes, Republicans are hoping that Democrats rethink their consideration of her being the nominee.
For you see in 2008, then Sen. Clinton fought a bitter primary against then Sen. Barack Obama for the nomination.

The Obama campaign used the formula of newly registered voters, a hip-hop community and the power of Black resentment towards Republicans and their handling of the government.
Many Bernie Sanders supporters are just about as progressive as Obama. The problem that Sanders is facing is name recognition. The junk food media so far done a media blackout on him and O'Malley.
Other than this controversy, you've haven't heard much Sanders news.
I've known about Sanders since he was a Congressman in the state of Vermont. He was then a mayor of the city of Burlington. Back in his earlier days, he started as a Brooklyn lawyer who walked in the 1963 March on Washington. He was critical of government's handling of the Iraq War, the Vietnam War.
He ran for the senate in 2006 after Jim Jeffords retired. Jeffords a former Republican who turned independent was ailing and he couldn't do it no more. Sanders got the endorsements of both Clinton and Obama.
Obama stomped with Sanders during is senate bid. Sanders was one of first senators to endorse Barack Obama during his 2008 primary battle.
Clinton was the favorite in 2008 but ended up losing to Obama.
