During his victory speech Tuesday night, Bernie Sanders said that America is “based on a simple principle, and that principle is fairness.” Ignore for a moment the sound of Thomas Jefferson rolling over in his grave and instead be happy for Sanders that his dream was put into practice after the New Hampshire votes were counted:

Hillary Clinton is expected to leave New Hampshire with just as many delegates as Bernie Sanders, even after he crushed her in Tuesday’s presidential primary.

Sanders won 15 delegates with his 20-point victory Tuesday while Clinton won nine.

But Clinton came into the contest with the support of six superdelegates, who are state party insiders given the freedom to support any candidate they choose.
[…]
But as it stands, the superdelegate support gives Clinton a total of 15 New Hampshire delegates.

“Fairness.” Careful what you ask for! Sanders really felt his own Bern on that one.
