Show me the large group of working millennials looking to pay much higher taxes for

universal health care and free college for college students.

Where are they?

Millennials like socialism until they get jobs

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/in-theory/wp/2016/03/24/millennials-like-socialism-until-they-get-jobs/

Is this true? Do millennials support Sanders only because they aren't paying for his platform?

Bad news: Sanders could win the next seven states after Arizona

Idaho, Utah, Alaska, Hawaii, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming

We don't have a chance to stop him until Hillary's Eastern firewall starts voting in a month's time.

Have courage and fortitude! It's gonna be a rough month from here on out.

I can't wait until Wall Street hating CT, NY and NJ vote and blow Clinton out of the water!!

Sanders' message must really resonate there!!!

Oh wait...

Even if Sanders convinces the super-delegates to switch to him, what makes him think the PUMA voters

will go along? You know, the majority of voters who chose Clinton on their ballots? Seems to a basic flaw in his underlying premise.

I'm gonna say this: Bernie is many things his supporters say he is. He cares a lot about economic

and social justice. He is truly an honorable person and he doesn't seem to care much for wealth or power.

You can quibble (as I have) whether or not his worldview is a little one-dimensional or whether his proposals or numbers are realistic. But you cannot quibble that he genuinely cares for the less fortunate in our society and wants to help them improve their lives.

I think Hillary needed a good wake-up call that a lot of people are not doing fine in this economy. Some say that Hillary is at her best when her back is against the wall and she should be glad that Bernie provided that foil.

If he had spent a lot more time over the years building bridges and allies, he would be in a much stronger position today. Clinton has spent literally decades helping elect Democrats up and down the ticket and unfortunately politics is all about collecting favors and cashing them in. Is that fair? Perhaps not but life isn't really.

I truly and really wish that Bernie moves on to a bigger role in the next stage of his public career. He brings many useful ideas many of them won't work but are still worth trying out. It would really come full circle if he were appointed Health Care Czar in the Clinton administration.

Hail Mary pass: hoping the superdelegates that you have been dissing all season will switch sides

Bernie Sanders is falling further and further behind in pledged delegates — but even after Hillary Clinton’s Tuesday romp, his campaign says there’s a longshot strategy that lets him regain momentum and win the Democratic nomination by relying on superdelegates even if he comes into the Philadelphia convention still trailing Clinton.

Anyone remember the scene in West Wing when Bartlett wins the Illinois primary?

Wish I could find a clip on Youtube to post here.
