What do you think Hillary Clinton’s strategy should be to defeat Donald Trump? And although Bernie Sanders endorsed Clinton, there is still much left for the Vermont senator to accomplish. What will his legacy be? Where should Sanders supporters focus their attention? Should they rally behind a grass-roots organization, such as Black Lives Matter, or fight the big banks?
