Bernie Saunders uses the "reward" frame
Courtesy Bob Geiger:
“I spoke against the Lieberman motion and voted against it," said Sanders, who had made his feelings on the issue known before today's vote. "For me, the bottom line is that millions of Americans, with unprecedented energy, worked day and night to get Barack Obama elected and to move our country in a very new direction."Now how would have this fight played out if more Dems had talked about not giving Lieberman an award?
"I think it’s a slap in the face to these activists that someone who opposed those efforts in a very prominent way is awarded with a major committee."
