27. The debate has really only just begun.

The movement which Sanders embodies could be dated back to Occupy, and in Sanders it has its first candidate of national prominence.

Sanders has "lost" the primary, but getting here is a victory in itself. The revolution is going to be televised, at least a little, at the convention. There is opportunity for big change, and by running, Sanders has given it a platform.

Inequality is growing, and therefore so is the movement. In the next election, and the one after, we will see it gain influence.
