Okay, I had someone give me the “you will never be happy you’re disingenuous creating spin” thing. So here is how Bernie could have handled this:

“Yes, it is tremendously harder for a woman to get elected to office. The barriers in place because of sexism and also, btw, racism make the wall much too high to climb. I do still believe myself to be the best candidate in this race but

“ignoring the sexism does none of us much less the movement I’m trying to create, any good.”

And his inability to do that when faced with it possibly impacting him let’s me know who he would trade off when deals are being made. Actually, who he wouldn’t even KNOW he is trading off of.
