NYT:

Bernie Sanders says he’ll slow down

The senator said on Tuesday that he would “change the nature” of his presidential campaign after suffering a heart attack last week.

Mr. Sanders, 78, gave no indication that he was planning to drop out. Pollsters said that it was too soon to measure how his health issues might have affected voter preferences.

This may impact the campaign as well.

Bernie Sanders' daughter-in-law dies at 46 after cancer diagnosis

Associated Press, Burlington Free Press
2 hrs ago

The Lee & Martin Funeral Home in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, says Riggs died Saturday, the day Sanders returned to Vermont after suffering a heart attack. Her obituary said she was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer.

Riggs, a neuropsychologist, was married to Levi Sanders, who ran unsuccessfully for a New Hampshire congressional seat in 2018. Riggs' obituary says she met Levi Sanders while the two worked at an emergency food shelter in Vermont.

He needs to quit and unify the progressives.

A heart attack and a daughter dying are two very serious body blows. Bernie's age was an issue before. While Bernie's mind and ideas are strong, I don't see how he could ever be elected now.

He will. He just needs to stick around a little longer, for his pride.

Bernie was always more about the mission, but he caught the campaign bug in 2016 and it is hard for him to drop out now

Yes. But "the secret to a long life is knowing when it's time to go." I hope someone quotes that old saw his way.

I've always called him the progressive John the Baptist, and he's fulfilled that mission - the congressional class of '18 and candidates like Warren show how important he was.  But he's not the messiah.

That's very good.
