3. He monetized his Presidential run.

 

It's a somewhat natural occurrence.

"Still, the real lesson of Sandersís millions isnít that heís sold out his political revolution. Itís that his political revolution is winning, turning him into one of the most improbable celebrities in recent American history. Far from hurting Sandersís political success, his new wealth points to just how popular his ideas about inequality and fairness have become."

This is a bit questionable when looked at in the big picture. While Sanders has become a one percent earner I don't think his pull has garnered what is being reported about Biden and his 8 million dollar book payout or many others like HRC and Obama. All of whom garner a lot more money from book sales. So if they are using that as a measuring point it would seem that the "revolution" isn't winning, it is just making Sanders a bit more comfortable.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
