The same refusal to deal with maths/reality is reflected in both Sander's platform and his campaign

(1) What's the remaining path to nomination?
(2) How do you offer free health care to MORE people, without out of pocket costs, without limits on procedures and drugs, and give each household $5k more?
(3) How do you get support for single payer system when even Vermont didn't want to fund it?
(4) How much money can you really raise from a high frequency tax to fund free tuition and everything else that needs to be funded?

Sure you can dream big but they end up getting crushed when reality and maths overtake.

I'm glad MA was a stunning achievement for Bernie. But he actually does need to win big

at some point in big states. Coming in second isn't going to get him the nomination.

The race hasn't really changed much since Iowa. By Mar 15, half of all delegates will be awarded.

If anything, Hillary's stand in the South has done much better than expected. Yesterday's results will give her further momentum.

Bernie is really running out of time.

We look forward to: Mississippi, Louisiana, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Florida, North Carolina and Ohio.

There goes MA under the bus with the rest of the Confederacy

Boston - that bastion of low information voters

I hope Hillary wins big but not too big to avoid humiliating Sanders

Because at the end of the day she needs to win over his very passionate supporters and it makes it harder for reconciliation if she crushes him. She needs to give him the dignity and respect that he deserves.

What I want in Clinton: somebody who understands the complexities of the real world we live in and

doesn't dumb it down for voters or give easy solutions where none exist.

Health care reform is an incredibly complex area and the best answer Sander has been able to come up with "how do we pay for single payor" is "all the other countries can do it!".
