Sanders Campaign’s Commitment To Victory Irritates Media, Offends Clinton Campaign

Well we should take care not to offend Her Highness..........

"It is premature to grapple with how the movement around the campaign can continue after the campaign is over when it frankly is not over yet."

Once again, for the umpteenth time in the Democratic presidential primary, there is a dominant narrative in the establishment news media that it is over for Bernie Sanders. News outlets have crunched the numbers, again, and after the loss to Hillary Clinton in New York, conventional wisdom is Sanders cannot win.

Such harping is presented as if it is a neutral perspective solely based on mathematics that is not driven by any influence the Clinton campaign may have over media institutions. However, the fact is there are 1,400 pledged delegates left to win in contests. Clinton has 1,442 pledged delegates while Sanders has 1,209 pledged delegates. It’s a lead of 233 pledged delegates, which he could still overcome in June, especially if he continues to surge in California—a state with 475 delegates to be won.

To put it more concisely, Sanders has a path to victory. His campaign is not all but done. It would be all but done if there weren’t over a thousand pledged delegates to be awarded. That is not the case.

1. This is her time.

How dare anyone get in the way of Hillary & all those that invested millions to her in order to get a good return on their investment.

It must be really annoying.

3. I do think part of some Hillary supporters' annoyance

is that someone seriously, not just a token, got in her way. How dare he?

4. Bingo.

If it were any other person running against Hillary, someone would have offered a nice Secretary position and they would have dropped out. Since Sanders is not one to be bribed, they are pissed they can't get him to go away.

...and insisting that there can be only one "winner" in a presidential primary.
