37. This is unnecessary bashing. Most Bernie Sanders supporters and/or Progressives don't HATE Obama.

And we are not monolithic. I may not like that he supported Universal Health Insurance instead of Universal, single-payer Health Care, like Bill before him and now Hillary, but I don't hate him. I could give an entire laundry list of reasons why I don't agree with many of his policies and some of the actions he has taken, but it's not important for purposes of this post. But I don't hate him. No politician is worthy of any emotional investment like that from me (Do YOU invest time/emotion in hating a politician?!).

No, but I am a little disappointed in him - not for the reason you might think democrattotheend Jun 2016 #90
When he was in this exact same position in 2008, it was considered the finish line SFnomad Jun 2016 #92
