Reminder, we won't have a nominee until the convention [View all]

Even then, it really isn't over until election day. If Clinton wins the nomination at the convention, Sanders can just keep running until election day. But wait, the electoral college doesn't vote until January 6th, 2017. Sanders could convince just 270 electors to switch their vote and back him for president instead. However, this really isn't over until Chief Justice swears in the new president. Sanders could convince the president elect to step aside and have the Chief Justice swear Sanders in instead. But actually, it isn't truly over until the new president moves into the White House. Sanders could convince the public to block all roads to the White House where the newly sworn in president is planning on traveling to get to the White House. Sanders could then slip in the back entrance and take over as the new Emperor of America.

See it isn't even close to being over. They want him to drop out almost a year before this thing is even close to being figured out. This is the height of ridiculousness! At least give him a chance! Give him another year to sort this out!
