Bernie rally

Nobody yet knows who will take the Iowa caucus - polls put Bernie slightly behind or neck and neck with Hillary - or if Bernie's fervent support will translate into votes. Regardless, the once-improbable narrative of progressive political revolution Bernie declared months ago - that "subversive, counter-establishment energy unleashed within the party" - has proved to be more stubborn, deep-seated and in fact time-honored than most anyone imagined. That passion, coupled with so much ambivalence for and mistrust of Hillary, has been a revelation, and a victory unto itself. Seeing is believing. Startling shots from their final Iowa rallies tell the heartening tale.
