1. Sanders did lose. Eventually you're going to have to come to terms with it.

But you can put it off a little longer if you want.

6. They do, but it's very bitter.

It's so potent that it ends up running off half your suitors before the big ending.

It's so hard for some folks to wait for the votes to be cast; there must be a lot of anxiety causing those performance issues.

Dedicated little troll experiencing premature electionation.

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Calling a fellow DUer a "dedicated little troll" is a rude personal attack.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Mon May 16, 2016, 03:58 PM, and the Jury voted 0-7 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Saying Sanders lost is a lie, and deserves the callouts.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: It is. But it's also accurate, YouDig is clearly trolling. Dunno about the "dedicated" part though...
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: seems to me that you threw the bait in the water and the fish rose to bite it, and now you claim it bit too hard. Can't vote to hide it.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Meh

in, you can keep telling yourself that any day now, Bernie will rise!

2. The first part of your statement is true, the second part is not.

that being said, you are certainly welcome to continue advocating for Bernie until he concedes - I would do the same in your place.

10. I wouldn't hold my breath- if I were you- on conceding

 

Bern or Bust is not a whim

And all others outside haven't provided much evidence, to the contrary, of the fact that such a paradigm isnt warranted

Ir of the fact that Hillarians give a rats arse about our pains

18. Thanks for making the case..for me

 

And..what you still dont grasp

Is the fact Bern or Bust is a commitment

Based on the principle that we are supposed to be a democracy.

Another technicality you "should" give a concern about

25. We have cosidered it..Just as much as my daughters abduction

 

by Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs henhmen.

Bernie is complaining about entrenched oligarchs like Hillary, who believe they are above the law..no matter what

[br][hr][hr][br]

Bernie or Bust means I'm not voting for a person who takes money from those who benefit from organized crime and have directly harmed me and mine.

Lord forbid he were called to heaven...this day..wed still write his name in..unequivocally

Because we believe in good principles

And we are against bullies

24. We've reached the point where the "or bust" segment has to stick with or abandon that commitment.

There is no indication Bernie will receive the 66% minimum he needs in both KY and OR in order to catch up. That means he will need roughly 70% or more in the next contest in PR on June 5. There's nothing to indicate he will obtain that so he will need over 70% in every state on June 7. He's not going to reach 50% in NJ so even if he hits 70% in the four small states, he will still need 75% in CA - which is an impossibility.

His quest for the nomination is a quixotic one. If he loses both KY and OR (which I don't think will happen but if it does), there will be intensified calls on him to concede. There is no viable path for him today, let alone if he loses both states on Tuesday. It's time for the "or bust" crowd to put up or shut up, as the saying goes.

29. She can lose every remaining contest by 60-40 and she still wins a majority in the final PD count.

I'm not sure why that simple concept is proving to be so challenging to understand for some people.

11. Straight up. And some Hillary fans don't seem to appreciate that Sanders is performing a great

service by staying in the race, if for some reason, Hillary has to withdraw her candidacy, lets say she has some fresh scandal blow up, or the FBI charges her in the email case, or whatever reason it may be, Sanders is there as a "reserve", ready to become the nominee.

Anyone who ever followed sports knows it is smart to have players in reserve, in case something happens to the main player.

30. Hillary will still have her delegates and could release them to Elizabeth Warren,

If Hillary should withdraw does not mean Sanders doesn't need the required delegates. Also, Sanders could be investigated for his FEC on accepting campaign funding from individuals over $2700.

The Democratic Party is going to hand the nomination over to the losing candidate who cannot get the democratic parties traditional bases of PoC and Women to vote for them?
