Bernie Sanders To Stephen Colbert: 'Now More Than Ever, It's Our Revolution'By Darlene Powers Nov 20, 2016
As an Independent, Sanders was an outsider to the Democratic Party until he ran for its presidential nomination this year.
Several Clinton advisers have blamed the primary campaign with Sanders for weakening Clinton's candidacy in the general election, a suggestion Sanders dismissed.
"That is a fundamental difference that exists between Bill and Hillary Clinton and myself", he said.
The Vermont senator, whose presidential run likely helped elevate him to his new leadership position in the Senate, gave Clinton a run for her money, keeping the Democratic primary competitive into almost the last state.
Admittedly, I'm partial to representation from legislators being from IN and the Midwest and impartial to those from NY and California.

"Over the years, we have made progress in becoming a less discriminatory and more tolerant society - and we are not going backward", Sanders said during a speech at George Washington University. The position was previously held by Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. During that time he won major concessions while pushing the Democratic Party into approving the most progressive platform in its history, including seeking a $15 federal minimum wage and a carbon pricing regime to combat climate change. Elizabeth Warren of MA will serve as the vice chair of the Senate Democratic Conference, while Bernie Sanders, an independent socialist from Vermont, will serve as "chair of outreach". "There is a lot of pain in America, Capitol Hill doesn't understand it".
"He's talked about the collapsing working class in America". Go back in your corners.
Democratic leaders are grappling with the party's future and have made a decision to try to expand the party's populist appeal. And it is unusual that Schumer would choose so many different Senators for his leadership team. Schumer has "decided to expand the team and add three new members" to ten-including Sanders.
Schumer will take over for the retiring Sen.
He points out that Trump managed to win in part by tapping into very real anger and hurt brought about by economic hardships in parts of the country that have been hit particularly hard by globalization, automation and the growing income inequality. Schumer does not have the luxury of catering only to the Party's liberals, who come primarily from Democratic states.
