Politics is about the future. The rear view mirror doesn’t matter nearly as much as the challenges and obstacles ahead. Hillary knows that. Bernie knows that. That’s why they’ve joined forces.

All the debates, arguments, bruised feelings, victories, disappointments, highs, lows, ups and downs of the primaries are behind us.

Hillary and Bernie, two dedicated progressives, have joined forces to move America into a better, brighter, safer, smarter future.

Bernie’s supporters have flocked to Hillary at a surprisingly fast pace and now the image of Hillary and Bernie standing side by side is the final statement to Republicans: Democrats are united.

Bernie has explicitly endorsed Hillary. Two friends who fought a tough battle are now working to achieve the same goal: Elect Hillary as America’s first woman president and move the progressive agenda forward with courage and conviction.

It’s a beautiful moment.

America wins.
