Mark Alderman, chairman of Cozen O'Connor Public Strategies, explains why time is running out for Bernie Sanders in his race for the nomination in U.S. News & World Report. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is rapidly approaching the number of delegates she'll need to become the de facto Democratic presidential nominee. Clinton was a formidable opponent in 2008 for Senator Barack Obama, but Obama courted young voters, garnered media attention and raised a lot of money with small donations. Bernie Sanders has been able to attract some of the same enthusiasm , but as Mark pointedly notes, "He's not Barack Obama. Period." Mark says, " He's Bernie Sanders, and he has taken this thing way farther than he ever believed he could, and all credit to him for doing so but he's running out of runway here. The plane's just not going to take off." As the 2016 primary season comes to its end, Mark notes that, "It's legacy time for Bernie. He has the opportunity to write his own history. He gets to decide how he's going to be remembered. He can continue to damage Secretary Clinton and her candidacy, and he can take that right through to the convention. He can be remembered as the man who gave American President Trump. I don't think that's the legacy he's looking for right now, but that's where he's headed."
