Bernie Sanders gave a passionate victory speech to a packed room full of supporters after he won the New Hampshire Primary handily.

He began with familiar themes. "Tonight, we served notice to the political and economic establishment of this country that the American people will not continue to accept a corrupt campaign finance system that is undermining American democracy, and we will not accept a rigged economy in which ordinary Americans work longer hours for lower wages, while almost all new income and wealth goes to the top 1%," he said.

He also added a unity message to his speech as well, saying, "We will need to come together in a few months and unite this party, and this nation because the right-wing Republicans we oppose must not be allowed to gain the presidency."

Amen to that, Senator Sanders.
