Why did progressive hero never endorse Bernie?

Because she is rational enough to remember that Hillary is one of the best democrats of our time.

AND she's on the forefront right now fighting against the Orange America Destroyer, unlike others

1. And Bernie wasn't ever going to win

so siding with the loser wasn't smart politics.

2. Warren is principled enough not to back

 

a bad candidate, if Hillary wasn't a good liberal Warren would have endorsed Bernie or someone else

3. I agree

That's why she didn't run to Hillarys left.
She has no problem with Hillary.
She didn't endorse Bernie because as you said Hillary is a good candidate.

Wouldn't have been smart politics to endorse the loser when
their voting records in the senate were almost identical.

The dudebros wanted Warren to endorse but that wasn't ever likely to happen.

4. If only logic was enough to overcome the

 

talking points. I think politics is a football game for a lot of people. They just want to win, everything else be damned

5. I think a lot of people are like that

I think this year there's a lot of irrational Hillary haters pretending
to be Bernie supporters.

6. I really have been wondering if

 

some of these Hillary haters aren't Trump supporters stirring up hatred to divide democrats. Their talking points are identical to old GOP attacks.

9. I don't know that they're actually Trump supporters

I think they're not Democrats tho.
They're Greens or the old Ron Paul Libertarians.

They don't seem to be for anything so much as they are against Hillary.

And I haven't seen any real mention of Bernies agenda here in a couple of months
it's all conspiracy theories and Hillary smears which as you noted sound
remarkably the same as the RW talking points.

I'm actually glad they're here and I'm glad Bernie is staying in the race
it will make the final smackdown that much sweeter.

14. They stopped talking about Bernies agenda

after the interview he did with the NYD news.
He had zero answers about how he'd get his agenda passed or paid for.

After that all they've done is bash Hillary.

If you ask how Bernie would pass his plan for free college
they'll start talking about transcripts from speeches Hillary gave as a private citizen.

That's why Bernie got crushed. At the end of the day
he didn't really have anything but some slogans.

Otherwise they'd be focusing on his positives to convince people

10. Warren is much too clever for that

I think she did it exactlt right.

Hillary is crushing Bernie without her endorsement
so let Warren stay neutral in the primary.

Bernies candidacy was always a loser.
Hard to win with a message of anger and envy.

16. Not quite identical

Hillary has been known to work across the aisle to accomplish things.

Bernie, the Braxton Bragg of the Senate, has been known to vote 'nay' on bills he likes just because there's one thing in there he's not completely happy with.

11. Maybe because BS is no Democrat

He only in the last year said he wanted to run on the Democratic ticket. Never has he declared or demonstrated that he is a Democrat.
