Response to Treant (Original post)

8. Party membership isn't just a trivial matter.

Sanders spent 30+ years bragging about his refusal to join the Democratic Party. I know that he and his supporters view it as a badge of honor - as if he took some sort of "principled" stand - but it carried huge consequences. His refusal to be a part of building party infrastructure, both on DC and the states, to fundraise on behalf of Democrats, and to be involved in drafting rules, has consequences.

He joined the party last summer in order to obtain the benefits of running on the ticket, but he's got a lot of nerve to complain about rules he easily could have been involved in drafting - had he chosen to be involved.
