1. Good for Him, a True Representative of The People

Good for him. He won many states, and many votes, and did better in California than reported officially. He is truly representing his people. Take it to the convention, Senator Sanders! Our country needs your voice. I am sending more money today for campaign expenses!

13. Yes...he will...

But, he hasn't agreed to holding hands with Hillary out on the Campaign Trail..

And, he shouldn't. His "Own Voice" about Trump will be enough...

And to reiterate..."He doesn't need to hold hands with Hillary out on the Campaign Trail"...because he has His Own Following who supports who HE IS!

It will be interesting to see how things unfold leading up to the convention and beyond.

21. Sanders never palled around with lobbyists or Banksters or Wall street or super pacs

 

So far they are the ones mostly holding hands with Hillary. It's difficult for a multimillionaire to think in terms of the middle class and working poor without being urged to and guided toward their agenda but it can be done so we need Bernie's influence and the populist movement to make sure their interests remain front and center. Put a ban on fracking and a transaction tax on wall street for a start.

22. Bernie and Hillary are on the same side against Trump and company

As Bernie has said, on her worst day, Hillary is infinitely better than the Republicans.

5. If he'd been listening, he'd know what kind of platform she supports

after dozens of debates and Town Halls.

14. Oh, I'm pretty sure he knows.

There's no love loss there.

I think he believes she is the embodiment of the neoliberal movement.

Pretend social liberal tossing a crumb to the commoners while screwing the hel out of them economically.

That's what he was saying in those halls and debates.

6. Yes!!!!!

I was a delegate to my state democrat convention yesterday. Bernie won the Democrats primary and we want him stay in until Philadelphia.

California has not finalized their ballot count yet and won't until July. I think they are expecting to be complete by July 3.

10. Noticing a pol that can't face the fact that he lost....

 

.... Is corroding our party? How so?

Also, Bernie is not a member of "our" party.

11. Yes He Is

 

Anyone can be and he is regardless of your club membership. He had a choice...run as a democrat or an independent. He could have possibly won as an independent. He definitely would've had more votes than Hillary and she would've had 0% chance of winning. Perhaps you would've liked that better and keep your club credentials without any riff raff having to be associated with.

15. I believe he also said that Obama should have been primaryed in 2012

That Obama was in dire need of a shove in the direction of his promises from 2008.

I agree with that conclusion.

I believe that his decision to join the fray was based on principles and that he felt that the presidency should be earned, not inherited.

I don't think he's going to hand over his supporters like a war prize. He'll tell them to keep hold of their powder and wait to fight another day.

23. He said that in response to Obama putting a chain CPI on the table for SS cutting benefits

 

No real democrat would ever suggest such a thing. Bernie later walked it back and said it wasn't being 'literal' but was trying to demonstrate these are not democratic party principles. Maggie o above can only think in terms of the 'horse race' instead of what is being brought to the party and Bernie has always caucused with dems and is as much a member of the party as anyone working in its interests for more than forty years while also trying to maintain our core principles as they were being eroded by the DLC (Democratic Leadership Council) who began catering to the banks and wall street and wealthy donors to get money flowing into the party again as unions dwindled in response to deregulation and out sourcing of jobs due to trade policies. They allowed the lobbyists to invade the party with open arms. Clinton is one such leader of the DLC which is why Sanders wants to keep certain issues front and center all the way to the convention. Obama never was rude saying "Do the math...he lost...drop out...he's just angry or loves the crowds..all of which is insulting divisive and rude when just the opposite is true and that is what Obama told him and why he was congratulating him...which is what Hillary supporters of any worth should also be doing instead of petty vulgar tripe we often read here.
Congratulations Senator Sanders for showing such great courage talking truth to power and wealth. Thanks you for this. Your sincerity is inspiring.

24. Yes He Is

 

I know you would like a private club to pay yourself on the back and say see how great we are but the fact is anyone can be. Democrat regardless of what else they do at the variance in how they identify. If not you and your privilege will endanger it. Bernie caucuses and votes as a democrat. Sorry you cannot handle that he calls himself a socialist, a socialist democrat or an independent but many, many more people on both sides call themselves independents because they couldn't stomach how their parties got hijacked. The republicans by religious fanatics and the democrats by corporations. Both parties looked very different 30 years ago. People are pissed about it obviously. I will say this. If you keep pointing out he's not a democrat then you look foolish. If he ran as an independent then Hillary would've been GUARANTEED a LOSS in the general election. It would've been a toss up between Bernie and the republican.

12. Excellent piece. Thanks for posting.

I don't see a man who will go willingly into that good night.

Hillary better do some humbling in her victory cause there are a bunch of us who already don't think much of her.

Oh, and even less for her Ellen Jamesians.
