Using Technology to Deepen Democracy, Using Democracy to Ensure Technology Benefits Us All

When Sanders declares he'll use the bully pulpit in "unprecedented ways" to break through GOP obstruction I assume he means... magical ways?

And can I just add that nobody with sense would declare Sanders a more forceful or inspirational speaker than President Obama. And it is quite clear that Obama generated incomparably greater enthusiasm and crowds in his election campaigns than Sanders has done. Sanders shows no sign that he can accomplish more than Obama has done (I think his stridency and disdain of many relevant stakeholders to every concrete policy issue means he would accomplish far less) and yet he denigrates Obama as unaccomplished. I find all this both deeply, dangerously erroneous and profoundly, outrageously insulting.
