Response to leftcoastmountains (Original post)

14. I don't understand the point of challenging a member of the Platform committee.

Maybe I don't understand what the Platform committee does, but I assume it does what it sounds like it does.

So I don't see how it affects Sanders, who will not be the nominee, that someone who supports the nominee, is on the Platform committee.

As to Frank, I had always thought Barney Frank was a hero to DUers. I had no idea of the history of animosity between him and Sanders. But anyway, if these guys were both duly elected by prior rules then I don't see how Sanders has a case.

I've always really like Bernie Sanders. I hope after the dust settles his reputation is not tarnished by the twists and distortions of this campaign (mostly not of his doing). We need him and his voice.
