The Bernie Sanders Phenomenon: How Long Will It Last?

Hosted by

Less than 15 months ago, Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders made a 10-minute announcement to a few reporters and hustled back into the Senate. Since then, millions have felt "the Bern," massive crowds have turned out, and Sanders has gotten enough votes to seriously contend for the Democratic nomination. Now he wants to define the issues and change the rules at this summer's convention. Will his supporters hold their noses and vote for Hillary Clinton? Can the campaign that came out of nowhere really become a "movement?"
