Given Hillary Clinton's recent comments about Bernie and the thread on this forum that now has over 300 replies, I think it's only fair to post a 'Thank You' letter Hillary sent to Bernie toward the end of the GE and some videos regarding his work campaigning for her.
Also, here's Hillary speaking at a rally in North Carolina where she spend some time thanking Bernie for his efforts on her behalf. Starts at 1 minute 57 seconds.
And finally, here's a segment from Maddow where she also praises Bernie for his efforts during the GE, highlighting that he did 14 events in 5 days for her, and that was just the beginning.
EDIT: Now people are saying he didn't endorse Hillary soon enough. Two things. First, he endorsed her on July 12th, before the convention.
Second, here's what Hillary had to say about candidates sticking it out until the end of a primary.
No insults. No challenges of physical strength. Stays on message. Unites the audience. This is what leadership looks like.
What a grouch...
EDIT: This was supposed to be a lighthearted post, everyone. Sheesh...
Undecided is over 20%.

(CNN)The American political debate over health care is absurd. Americans pay twice as much as any other nation for health care, and then are told daily that they "can't afford" to switch to a lower-cost system very similar to those of Canada and Europe. If President Donald Trump and the plutocratic Republican party were the only ones carrying this ridiculous message, it would be understandable. Yet this message is also coming from media pundits aligned with the Democratic Party and the most conservative wing of the party.
Let's be clear on the central point. Medicare for All, as first proposed by Bernie Sanders and endorsed by Elizabeth Warren, is affordable precisely because it is cheaper, much cheaper, than the current system.
Pleasantly surprised to see this on the CNN homepage. Enjoy.
All others <10% with Buttigieg at 9%. Continues the trend of Warren flattening off, Biden losing support, and Bernie making gains. Buttigieg will be the wild card depending on whether voters view him as a moderate alternative to Biden.
WASHINGTON The countrys largest nurses union will endorse Senator Bernie Sanders for president this week, a significant boost to his campaign from a major ally in the fight for his signature health care proposal.
The union, National Nurses United, fervently supported Mr. Sanderss last bid for the White House in 2016, and its members have been significant players in Democratic politics since then, showing up in red T-shirts to support Mr. Sanderss progressive allies in intraparty battles. They have also canvassed neighborhoods in swing congressional districts, urging voters to get behind Medicare for all, Mr. Sanderss plan for a nationalized health insurance system.
We know what we have done and what it takes to bring about fundamental change, and its massive organizing and a mass movement, said Jean Ross, a co-president of the union. Of all the candidates, Bernie is the one who understands that.
The union plans to formally endorse Mr. Sanders on Friday at a news conference in Oakland, Calif.
