Ten months after Sanders announced his presidential bid, the huge 
crowds, the enthusiasm, the dreams that Americans would finally embrace 
socialism, at least in word if not in deed, his path to the nomination 
will narrow if he doesn’t have a strong showing on Super Tuesday and win 
some key states. The left, disorganized as ever, has little to show from 
it. Even as obituaries are being written for Sanders, some cling to the 
airy idea that the Democratic Party can be co-opted in spite of its 
glaring corruption and dominance by forces allied with Wall Street and 
the Pentagon.

Sanders has proved that millions of Americans are hungry to reverse 
neoliberal economic policies. But the task remains the same: to organize 
radical mass movements rather than believing they can magically spring 
from a Democratic Party inhospitable to everything the left represents.
