This story seems very one-sided, and only quotes one Sanders delegate.

If there is a divide in the party, the blame for that goes far beyond Wasserman-Schultz. Of course she’s the only one that’s going to take the hit, but I’m certain she was far from acting alone.

This whole post-wiki-leaks situation has given me even more contempt for political parties than I already had…and I didn’t even think that was possible. Sanders gave up both his testicles to support the very establishment that he campaigned so hard against. And now pretty much everyone in the DNC is dismissing the justified anger of Sanders supporters (and, oh yeah, donors) by telling them “Think what we tell you to think, and vote how we tell you to vote”. 

If the Dems would have done the right thing and ran Sanders, who I legitimately believe had more support than Clinton, he could beat Trump. But, now they’re running someone who scandal seems to follow every where she goes, and the Dems conspire to put her in and got caught…if Trump wins (which is a real possibility now), the Dems have no one to blame but themselves.

If Trump does win, then hopefully the Dems learn from this, and in 2020 pick a candidate that the whole country can get behind, and not just the upper echelon of the Democratic party.
