After Back Bench Bernie's Indiana win last night,...

...which netted him about 5-7 net delegates and about a 40,000 vote gain on the 3+ million vote margin that Hillary has over him, I'm reminded a quote from Macbeth. To me, it not only symbolizes the Indiana win, but the more I think of it, the entire Sanders campaign!

"...a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."

This is what Sanders has allowed his campaign to become. When he finally DOES face reality, I expect that his most rabid supporters will turn on him. He will get no sympathy from me, and the likely hood of my choosing to ever respect him again shrinks with each passing moment.

Wouldn't Howard Dean make a GREAT senator from Vermont?

PEACE!

6. Not much bang for his 2 million bucks

That's what he spent on ads in that state. Hillary spent nothing.

But she does have directors in swing states who are already holding meetings with over 50 staff each in FL, CO and OH. She's so strategic with the money we donate!

8. "That's what he spent on ads in that state. Hillary spent nothing."

And yet she beat him in delegates: 46 to his 44 with two still undecided. Not bad for not spending a single dollar in that State.

9. Kinda like Wyoming.

I expect the "cheating" claims in 3...2...1...

They've become so damned predictable and BORING!

PEACE!

11. He would!

It wouldn't surprise me if the party pressures him to run in 2018!

PEACE!

12. Dean might have to run against the NRA in Vermont.

That could mean trouble for him. That's why Bernie capitulated.
