BERNIE SANDERS: In my view the biggest... political mistake President Obama made is that... throughout this country, in my view, in 2008, Barack Obama ran one of the great campaigns in the history of the U.S.A.
A brilliant campaign, an extraordinary campaign, he rallied the American people.
But what happened the day after he was elected? Essentially, in so many words, he said "Thank you, America for electing me, I'll take it from here."
Given the powers of corporate America and the large campaign donors, you can not change America unless millions of people are standing behind you, and that is the difference between me and Barack Obama.
It is not just, vote for me, I have great ideas, you are going to have to be with me the day after the election.
