HRC supporters: Please stop saying that it doesn't matter if Sanders wins a state. IT DOES MATTER!

Whenever I hear someone assert that it doesn't matter if Bernie Sanders wins a state because HRC still has more pledged delegates, I cringe. IT DOES MATTER!

It matters because the Corporate Media continues to treat this guy with kid gloves.
It matters because it keeps the narrative going that HRC is unelectable and unlikable.
It matters because it keeps Trump's mouth running about how HRC can't "put Bernie away".
It matters because as long as Sanders' supporters believe that he has a chance, even when he doesn't, the less likely we are to come together; and Sanders will continue to make demands on the party and try to destroy it from within.

I understand that winning is about pledged delegates.

But as long as this guy wins by ANY metric, it keeps false narratives going and it allows him to make these demands.

It's time for all Democrats to come together. But the more he is perceived to have won anything or to have a chance at anything, it keeps the hatred going.

Hell, we can't even go to any DU forum outside of this one without the hate.

He can't win ANYTHING by ANY metric because it matters when he does.

1. Yes it matters but it won't make a difference to the nomination.

We will be getting out the vote in NJ either way!

4. And as I said, it hurts Hillary Clinton and it'll hurt her more if he wins CA, NJ or any state.

 

It is clear that the Corporate Media feeds off of drama.

HRC needs to win California in EVERY way. Put this guy away or forget it.

3. The math is, of course, in her favor, but I would never suggest that

 

individual states' results don't matter.

You said it all here:

It matters because the Corporate Media continues to treat this guy with kid gloves.
It matters because it keeps the narrative going that HRC is unelectable and unlikable.
It matters because it keeps Trump's mouth running about how HRC can't "put Bernie away".
It matters because as long as Sanders' supporters believe that he has a chance, even when he doesn't, the less likely we are to come together; and Sanders will continue to make demands on the party and try to destroy it from within.

7. Very true.

A loss won't change the outcome, but it would continue a negative-and bitter--narrative.

8. Yes. It's all about the optics. The optics don't look good. And by he way, DWS will be out.

 

It sounds like even HRC and Obama were becoming disillusioned with her.

12. You are absolutely right, LS71.


But as long as this guy wins by ANY metric, it keeps false narratives going and it allows him to make these demands.

13. I see your point.

 

but I don't think the drama will last long enough to matter come November.


People have short memories, and new drama is sure to be introduced because the media needs the drama to bring to eyes for profit.

I haven't seen one new accusation against Hillary since the emails and WS transcripts. The emails are just an extension of the umpteenth Benghazi investigation and shows IT to be a problem throughout the US government, and I suspect there isn't much to the transcripts either. Neither of these accusations stopped her from getting the Dem nomination and the highest number of popular votes of any of the candidates.
