Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm sure we've all done it - those of us who were ever active in politics - even student politics: packed a meeting with our supporters in order to vote into office our people and take over an organisation which we may have had little involvement with previously.  Hardly surprising that those who have run the organisation for years and who are heavily invested in it should fight back using every procedural ruse at their disposal to try to thwart the coup attempt.

My only point is that Sander's shouldn't have become personally involved and raised a local issue with minimal national impact into a national one  which could damage the very party he hopes to lead.  It's only going to unite Dem. party establishments in every state even more firmly against him, at the very time he needs to loosen their pre-existing alliances in the hope of gaining at least a few more converts.

If he campaigns as an outsider, he will be treated as one. If he wants to lead an insurgency against party establishments, don't whine when they won't support him.
