92. Excuse me?????

I think that you got that backward. I blame Sanders for the behavior of some of his supporters. Sanders grudgingly released a statement after Reid talked to him and asked him to address his supporters and try to calm the waters. The statement half-heartedly tsk-tsk'd them for acting out in NV and then launched right into his usual complaints that the system is rigged against him. That only served to stoke the fires even more.

That's what happens when a man who spent his entire political life as an Independent tries to take over the Democratic party. He feels zero loyalty to it and refuses to accept its nomination process. The fact is that in most states Hillary has won the majority of the votes of registered Democrats. The process has been in place for some years and its the same process that helped elect Obama. If Sanders didn't approve of the process, then he shouldn't have run as a Democrat.

I know how much it hurts when your candidate doesn't win. Been there, done that; but what I see this year is that Sanders is the one dividing the party. Hillary barely even mentions him, she's already pivoted to the GE and is focusing on Trump.

I believe that Sanders has a right to run until all votes have been cast, but he should also not deceive his supporters. On Tuesday night he said that he still had a path to make it to the convention with a pledged delegate majority. Seriously????? Come on......
