1. Welcome to DU, Clyde! Thanks for that great Huffpo piece.

Love the last two paragraphs of the piece:

It can only be hoped he has some close advisors who will help him face reality and say to him; “Bernie you LOST, it’s over. That happens in elections and the time has come to show some class.” He needs to be told “While you have achieved your fifteen minutes of fame and made a real difference in the discussion if you want to actually make a difference on the issues you care about you will gracefully leave the stage. Working with Hillary and not trying to tear her down is the way to make progress on the progressive issues you claim to care about. Any other scenario places you in the position to take the blame if Trump wins.”

Bernie if Donald Trump wins and gets to appoint a Supreme Court Justice and negates all the progress Barack Obama has fought for in the past eight years, you become the 2016 Ralph Nader. The same Nader who now at age 84 walks around Dupont Circle in Washington, DC with his head down afraid people will recognize him and say “Thanks Ralph for electing George W. Bush.” You don’t want to be that person in a couple of years with people saying ‘Thanks Bernie for electing Donald Trump."

5. This part is perfect.. wraps up BS' campaign in a nutshell and I haven't seen it mentioned..

Bernie’s campaign made many mistakes. The biggest being while he knew the rules he forgot to tell his supporters what they were. Instead of blaming himself he now blames the Democratic Party for his mistakes. His own senior advisor helped create the superdelegate system. He knew which primaries were ‘open,’ where anyone can vote; or ‘closed’ where only registered Democrats can vote. He didn’t think it important to tell any of the people who came out to his rallies about that.

Welcome to DU, Clyde, and specifically here to Hillary's Group~

6. K & R, thanks for sharing

I keep thinking Bernie will tell his campaign they have fought the good fight and it is time to begin the ultimate fight of defeating Trump. Together we can do this.

8. The big mistake made in this primary campaign was playing nice with bernie and his record of the

 

last 40 years. I understand why hillary didn't want to sink to his level, but the american people have no idea on sander's past.....his 40yrs of socialist attacks on america....his die hard pacifism... and his legislative accomplishments (lack of).....

We all hoped that sanders was going to be an honorable person and show class when the end came. He has no hope of the nomination no matter what happens and can only be viewed as an angry old socialist hellbent on destroying america....he makes TRUMP PROUD

11. Sanders is not a pacifist.

In one of the early debates, I heard him make this statement himself. He has had the luxury of being able to make some public votes such as a "no" vote on the IWR (not a vote for or against war, BTW, but against a particular resolution), but did vote in favor of war in Afghanistan, IIRC, and for plenty of military funding.

13. I am just going by his own words.

I can't remember which debate, but he said it early on.

again this goes back to HOW LITTLE the american people know about Bernie as he has never been vetted on the national stage before....so he was a pacifist before he wasn't....lol



http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/bernie-sanders-applied-conscientious-objector-status-vietnam-campaign/story?id=33434041

Bernie Sanders applied for conscientious objector status during the Vietnam War, his campaign confirmed to ABC News.

"As a college student in the 1960s he was a pacifist," Michael Briggs, campaign spokesman added in an email. "[He] isn't now."

Last week, the Des Moines Register ran a column from a Hillary Clinton supporter and Vietnam veteran, titled, "How can Sanders be commander in chief?"

"My question as a Vietnam veteran is: How on earth could a person claiming to be a conscientious objector become the commander in chief of the most powerful military in the world?" questioned the column author Steve Wikert. According to a profile from the Vermont Senator's hometown newspaper, the Burlington Free Press, his conscientious objector status application was eventually rejected, but by then Sanders was too old to be drafted.

16. Excellent Read - Thanks!

Bernie Sanders has become a nasty parody of himself. I'm reminded of an old Chevy Chase bit on SNL. "This just in - the Bernie Sanders campaign is still dead."
