Starting off with a tribute to Paul Wellstone who passed away 15 years ago this week. (And to whom @Magsview devoted a diary to a few posts below this one)

Jane O’Meara Sanders, the wife of Bernie Sanders, joined Maura Derrane and Dáithí Ó Sé on the Today show.
Dr Sanders was speaking ahead of her talk at Limerick’s Concert Hall as part of an Irish American festival.
She revealed that Bernie’s campaign was not supported by Harvey Weinstein, a well-known supporter of the Democratic party, and said that Weinstein advised the Clinton campaign on how to defeat her husband.
On whether or not Bernie would run for president in 2020 when he is 77 years of age, she simply said that they believe “age is just a number”.
