25. It's more of an aquatic ceremony

From a person it's simply a Hey this guy would make a good president. Influential endorsers might be favored by a future administration because no candidate would ever promise a future position for an endorsement. That would be rather shady now wouldn't it. Almost as shady as keeping a shit list by a candidate.

From an organization, it's we recommend all of our member vote thus. Some endorse a candidate from each party having memberships that cross parties.

From a press organization, it's up to the editor or the owner to endorse anyone.

In this case, Bernie won't be swayed by who endorsed his candidacy so there's no up side to coming out for him. Clinton is known to hold a grudge so endorsing Bernie is all downside if she wins the primary. If you consider that Bernie peeps will show their appreciation at the poll, that could be an upside.

Off Topic, Slainte Cousin.
