Sanders supporters have to admit the optics don't look good

The DNC decided to award Washington state delegates through a caucus which Bernie won and is entitled to them---

However, this is the 2nd primary in a caucus that Bernie won where he lost the primary---where hundreds of thousands of more people voted. This close to CA, this does not bode well for his campaign

2. Yes and Hillary won Today's primary

 

Sanders keeps his delegates but it signals when more people vote ( like in a GE) Clinton wins. It signals a Cali win.

6. Even if a state chooses by caucus...

...they're still required to have a primary also. At least that's what I read when Nebraska did its non-binding primary a week or two ago.

3. The optics look staged and stupid

It changes nothing.

5. So why does WA have such a stupid system?

 

I daresay that's the only question worth asking here.
