It's 1980 Again

In 1980, a hard left Democrat (for that time) Ted Kennedy, decided to run against a centrist Democrat (Carter).  The left end of the party never quite overcame their dislike of Carter, and Reagan was elected.  5/2/16 The Hill:
Hillary Clinton’s allies are fuming over Bernie Sanders’s vow to take the presidential nominating contest to a floor fight at the Democratic convention this summer.

Many Democrats believe Clinton effectively clinched the nomination after a string of victories across the Northeast and mid-Atlantic gave her what looks to be an insurmountable lead in delegates.

This is cold comfort. We don't have a Reagan.
