1. He refuses to say he will endorse Hill. Sanders plans to run Indy.

Nothing he says refutes that.

2. No

 

He has stated he's in it to make the Democratic Party better.

No one should be in opposition to that. Except republicans.

15. You may want to rethink that theory

Clinton got the most pledged delegates and popular votes. That's kind of the definition of the will of the people.

20. The will of the people is unity

 

Bernie is in a unique position to make it so. Who is opposed?

22. No he is not

if he cared about unity and not about sabotaging the Democratic party he would have conceded...he looks more and more like a spiteful person who can't face that he lost. What a mistake it was to allow someone like that to run as a Democrat.

33. The will of which people????

Hillary won and won by 13% of the total vote. She has a 387 pledged delegate advantage, more than triple the delegates that Obama had in 2008 and she also won 3.7M more votes than Sanders.

I think that the people have spoken and have spoken loudly.

23. He is obviously in it to sabotage the election.

Clearly, he wants the Democratic party to lose. He is on Trump's team now.

5. He will have strong representation for his Changes to Dem Pary Platform and Election

Rules and his Supporters will have their Voices Heard...

Already Bernie supporters have Permits for Demonstrations in three areas at the Philly Convention.

He is meeting with Hillary tonight. Let's see how this turns out.

I think you mean behind fences outside the convention hall.

Like happens at Every convention.

21. so exciting

Give the GOP a pass and try to sabotage the democratic convention...don't know what your movement is about but progressive it is not. You all are now on Trump's team and so is Bernie Sanders.

18. Some of us care about important things

like the courts and actual people who would be hurt in a Trump presidency...Bernie is an also ran...who's name will not be remembered in a few years. He is irrelevant. That being said, I would not allow him to do anything at the convention ...no speech and no platform goodies...he either gets out or there is one vote and security escorts him out.

30. Equally charming.

 

Now! With more empty words!

You're amusing, you are.

Even without the ignorant syntax--amusing, still.

19. Of course since

Sanders has not conceded...and we have a nominee as of the 16th...he is a third party candidate in a way so we will not be reading about his antics here. I am sure you all can head over to Jack Spratt or whatever that silly website is called.

All he is doing now is denying that he lost and that isn't going to change a thing.

It is sad to see someone you once admired destroy himself.
