I'm always shocked people are shocked when liberals be liberals. You don't get to be a career politician by being a radical.

I know that intellectually. I can see that clearly with someone I haven't ever bought into, like a Kamala Harris or Larry Krasner. But Bernie was such a big part of my turn to radicalism that I still have some emotional attachment to him. I like him personally, so it disappointments me when he does stuff like this.

Also, as someone who has followed him for a decade before he ran for President, I think he has become more and more of a liberal, especially over the last 2 years. So part of my surprise is his continued turn from somewhat radical social democrat into purely liberal career politician.
