Ash writes: The way that you rather spontaneously, and with a hint of real anger, declared 'I am a Progressive' in your brief Iowa departure speech, there was a sense that at least you believed it.

This is it – the date is set, and we have less than 48 hours to make sure our leaders hear us: we do NOT want the TPP. Help us scrap this bad deal once and for all.

Excerpt: Did Iowa voters feel the Bern enough to tip the tally in Sanders' favor despite early corporate media reports of a Clinton win? It appears that numerous news outlets are now highlighting polling issues at the Iowa caucus, which if resolved may shift the count toward Sanders. At the moment, it is too soon to know, but not early enough to read about.
