Why Bernie Sanders Is Still The Big Winner Of This Primary Season

Bernie Sanders may have lost the race for the Democratic nomination, but out of everyone who played the game this primary season, he's actually the big winner. Don't worry, I'll explain.
On Friday, the Democratic Party released a draft of its 2016 platform, representing what the party will fight for until the next presidential cycle. Of course, it can change — it's only a draft, after all — but it's chock-full of ideas from Hillary Clinton's primary challenger.
There are some familiar themes in here — fighting climate change, protecting voting rights, reining in Wall Street — but it's clearly more progressive than anyone expected before Sanders entered the race.
