Bernie Sanders Drops Out

Sydney Embers, reporting for The New York Times:

Mr. Sanders, 78, leaves the campaign having almost single-handedly moved the Democratic Party to the left. He inspired the modern progressive movement with his expansive policy agenda and his impassioned message that “health care is a human right,” and electrified a legion of loyal supporters who wholeheartedly embraced his promise to lift up those who need it most. He also transformed the way Democratic campaigns raised money, eschewing big fund-raisers and instead relying on an army of small-dollar donors.

All true. By exiting now, Sanders leaves this race with his head high. Next up: pull his supporters behind Biden.
