Take them at their word.

THE BIG IDEA: The scope and scale of Hillary Clinton’s victories last night ameliorates much of the pressure that she has been under to pander to Bernie Sanders and his supporters.

California was the biggest delegate prize of 2016 for Democrats. Sanders spent the better part of the past month camped out there. And Clinton beat him by 13 points – or nearly half a million votes.

She won the second most valuable prize available last night, New Jersey, by 26 points. And she defeated Sanders in New Mexico and South Dakota.

The Democratic coalition will ultimately unify behind Clinton – as long as she pays a modicum of respect to Sanders, which she will – because the liberal base does not want Donald Trump to become president. And Clinton benefits enormously from growing concerns among independent voters about the presumptive Republican nominee.


Okay. Cool. Then someone go let the neo-redcoats know to dispense with the loyalty oaths.

We're not as stupid as they think we are.

The fight continues!
