Oh, I like Harry Enten.. And, we already know Hillary is great @ #Math

The number is going to end up being #45~

"He's had 75 yrs to evolve & make a better world for ALL.

He has clearly failed. His big moment on the world stage, his act of self gratification at the expense of all people of the world, has proven his lack of capacity to lead."

Clinton wins 87% to Sanders 12% - Clinton gets all 7 delegates - Sanders non-viable in the Virgin

Islands!

"BS is non-viable in Virgin Islands"

I can't wait until he's non-viable in the whole country except maybe Vermont.

More Proof..

Clinton moves closer to nomination, sweeps in Virgin Islands

The party said Clinton won 84.2 percent of the vote, while Bernie Sanders earned 12.2 percent. Under Democratic National Committee rules, a candidate must win at least 15 percent of the vote to be eligible to receive delegates.


People were excited and overjoyed when Bill Clinton came to visit," said Cecil R. Benjamin, who chairs the party there. He noted that in addition to the seven pledged delegates, all four of the Virgin Islands' superdelegates are now backing Clinton. Superedelegates are party officials who can back any candidate.

"We are the only state or U.S. territory where she got 100 percent of the delegates," he said, citing in part the large voter turnout. "It was great, and we are ready for the national convention
."

I had to look your greeting up.. shows you how international I'm not.. How nice.. do you love it there?

My friend and his wife took a 2 week honeymoon to Europe and their favorite place was Suisse because everyone was so nice! But, Italy was their favorite for food!

Hey thanks, brave.. What does it mean to 'clinch the nomination' when superdelegates are involved?

Summary

Anyway, I started this research 12 hours ago to answer a question for myself, so that as everyone on TV is spinning things this way and that on June 7th I have some context. What, if anything, have I learned?

First, most non-incumbent candidates have needed superdelegates to win, and the history of superdelegates has been that once a Democrat hits the magic number and becomes the nominee, superdelegates are more likely to flow to the nominee than from them.

Also, in the history of the superdelegates, they have always ended up supporting the decision of the pledged delegates, and their most important contribution has been to amplify leads of the pledged delegate winner so that they can be assured success on a first ballot, and avoid the sort of messy convention that harms a general campaign.

The major thing I’ve learned is that the press declares, and has always declared, the winner after they hit the magic number, and has done so in far more nebulous circumstances than this. Even in 1984, in which Hart won by a number of other metrics, in which the delegate count was the arbiter, and Mondale announced himself as the nominee, even with 38 percent of the popular vote to Hart’s 36 percent—even then, Hart may have claimed he still had a cunning plan, but no one begrudged Mondale the fact he was, for all intents and purposes, the nominee.

When you think about it, that simply has to happen. Things need to get done, and they need the nominee to do them. Except for Reagan in 1976, who chose a running mate after Gerald Ford was made the nominee, there aren’t a whole lot of non-nominee candidates going to the convention with their own vice president picked out. You get to do that because the numbers say you’re the nominee.

You've probably seen this.. I just saw it.

Yes she did!

Mahalo~

Yep, Fantastic!

Virgin Islands:

"Who wouldn't"? I'll tell ya who.. Someone who wasn't an egotistical, arrognant pol.. who

actually really cared about the people instead of listening to the sound of his own voice. Someone who knew more than a stump speech he'd been using for decades.

How must it feel to feel like a god? Bernie Sanders knows. At the end of each of his debates with Hillary Clinton, he never turned toward her or the news anchors. He always turned to his cheering, adoring fans, soaking up the sunbeams of their love each and every time. Who wouldn’t?

This is the part that pissed me off the most.. BS trying to erase President Obama's Successful Legacy with his own ego.. disingenuously raging on him.. Then Senator Obama went to Vermont to campaign for sanders in 2006.. yeah, so what?! But, sanders is never grateful for any progress and sniffs @ anything that Obama has accomplished.

After 8 years of GOP obstructionism, the stage was set. “Run Bernie Run!” The far-left progressives said, since they felt no shame or culpability in turning their back on President Obama when the going got tough. They were happy and content to blame him. He wasn’t progressive ENOUGH. But Bernie WAS. Bernie would do what Obama couldn’t. He could somehow force the Republican Congress to pass single-payer health care because Obama couldn’t. He could impose higher taxes on the other half of America who did not want more social programs. He could compel Wall Street speculators to foot the bill for free college nationwide. He could dismantle America’s financial system to break up the big banks. Even though he has no earthly way to pull any of that off.

"Oligarchy, Billionaires, Wall Street, Goldman Sachs." BS in a nutshell.



Oh and trump fans only being the ones who tried to smear her with Benghazi? She didn't read DU, did she?

"Though tensions might have run high in 2008, as poll numbers show us, neither Hillary Clinton nor Barack Obama ever engaged in such sloppy, cruel, abusive and destructive “anything to win” tactics. They both maintained a level of dignity and civility — a nicety Sanders has conveniently abandoned in the cry for “revolution.”

You see, for Bernie, it’s still all about Bernie. It’s still about a god’s rise. He can’t accept Hillary’s rise and triumph — even if his denial risks the fate of the country. Has any politician in recent memory ever abandoned so much to achieve so little?

Thanks for this Boot, Sasha's Really Good.. I'm thinking Sasha Stone isn't the only one feeling like this.
