9. So far, he hasn't lost it.

 

And you guys kept saying: just you wait, he will be out after Iowa - OK, but after Nevada - OK, but after Michigan - Well, just wait until...

He'll be in until June at least, and a lot can happen in three months. Remember all that happened in the last three months? He won a lot!

5. If you think Bernie stands for what a mainstream Democrat should stand for...

If you think Bernie stands for what a mainstream Democrat should stand for, what events could change your commitment to him or those ideas?

If Bernie doesn't become the party's candidate, it won't mean that he won't still be fighting for those positions. If Bernie supports Hillary's candidacy, if she is selected -- as he has said he surely would -- would that mean he was abandoning his ideals and goals? Absolutely not.

Bernie has stood for the same thing as a community worker, mayor, state legislator, and national legislator. It's part of his great appeal: what you see is what you get. If Clinton asks him to be in her administration -- she's gonna know who she's asking.

I don't assume Hillary will be the Democratic Candidate, and I also think it is wrong to ask any candidate to leave the race, and not just because I support Bernie. To call for that means you are asking to disenfranchise the voters in states with later primaries. Who can justify that? Many times, my first and second choices were no longer even in the race by the time my primary came along. Do you know what that feels like? If you did, you wouldn't want to do that to another Democrat.

Now, let me say that Bernie doesn't stand for everything I think a good Democrat should stand for, it's just that this time around he represents me (and my wife, too, by the way) far better than any other candidate in the Democratic presidential primaries. I also support some of Hillary's positions (mainly ones shared with Bernie and some that Bernie hasn't addressed much), but there are other areas where her positions or judgement diverge quite a bit from what I most want to see in a president. So I support Bernie, and I'm going to keep supporting Bernie. And I sent his campaign another donation today.
