When asking ourselves the key questions - who is best placed to defeat Donald Trump in November, and who is best placed to pull the Senate back into Democratic control - many of us still believe that the answer is not Hillary Clinton. It is Bernie Sanders.
The very ferocity and coordinated nature of the attacks on Sanders makes clear that the Democratic establishment views Sanders not merely as an annoyance, but as an existential threat. And he may be, at that.
Bernie Sanders can win--not just the primary, but the general. Democrats should back him, and ignore the arguments made by Barney Frank and others, who say giving Hillary the nod early is the only hope for victory in 2016.
