Hillary or no Hillary Sanders is not going to be the nominee....

Unless he somehow manages to get a majority if the pledged delegates by June 14. I cannot imagine any other scenario in which the democrats go with Sanders as the nominee

1. K & R, yes, Hillary will be the candidate with the most delegates and votes. Sanders can not get

the needed delegates.

3. Democrats

Are far from the party of saints they like Republicans want one thing....to WIN.

Picking anyone who didn't get any votes, media attention, etc. would kill them, some people go to the polls with nothing more than pulling the switch for a name the know or have heard most in the media lately....they couldn't even choose a Joe Biden because he hasn't been out there letting the people know what he is all about, pulling in new and first time voters, helping those who are undecided, getting Independent on his side, and maybe even those Republicans who don't want Trump and won't cast their vote for Clinton either...Democrats are not the only ones, who will stay home, or just vote down ticket.

They will indeed have Bernie because otherwise they LOSE.

4. Bernie says

 

"The Inspector General just came out with a report, it was not a good report for Secretary Clinton. That is something that the American people, Democrats and delegates are going to have to take a hard look at," he said. "But for me right now, I continue to focus on how we can rebuild a disappearing middle class, deal with poverty, guarantee health care to all of our people as a right."

5. re: "I cannot imagine any other scenario "

One other possible scenario is if the FBI recommends HRC indictment before the convention. Even if Sanders doesn't have a majority of pledged delegates, if he is at least reasonably close and Hillary is looking really problematic for the general, supers may consider switching their vote.

I don't expect this scenario to happen, though.
