Hillary will obviously lead in delegates after California. At the convention, a few of Sanders' points will be included in the Democratic Party platform, a raise in minimum wage, reduction on college costs, a jobs program etc. Bernie will be a loyal foot solider; endorse her and campaign for Hillary a few times in the fall, especially with college kids.

If she loses in the general election, how much do you want to bet the regular Hillary apologists here on DU will still blame Bernie and his supporters for her loss.

So, if the Democratic Party insists on Hillary Clinton, and gets her nominated, but she loses in November, anyone in the mood for blaming can cite the following…

• Hillary Clinton
• Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Staff
• The Democratic Party Establishment (with over 400 current and former officeholders having endorsed her before the 02.01.2016 Iowa caucuses)
• Corporate News Media (CNN, MSNBC, all the fraudulent, professional “left”—who are also in collusion)
• Every individual primaries voter who nominated Hillary Clinton

Bernie Sanders, and people who voted for Bernie Sanders to be the Democratic nominee, are not accountable in getting a general-election nominee Hillary Clinton to become elected the next and 45th president of the United States.
