Everyone should have a voice, but it's the President who makes the choice.

I don't think there is any other way to do it.

Maybe he should oversee the Presidency too!

But there's a concession there that he won't be the nominee, so that's good!

First, another lawsuit to change the rules to suit his (non-Democratic) voting base. Then, since he doesn't like DWS, he pointedly endorses her opponent, one of the few down-ticket races he seems to be aware of. Then he is allowed to make picks for the Democratic platform committee - way out of proportion to what's usual for a losing candidate - and picks a slate of people that are for the most part, pretty contentious picks, including one who went on the talk show circuit last weekend to call Hillary Clinton names.

Now, he wants to pick the Cabinet?

Naming a couple of post offices is not a lot to show. He is not going to be the president, I have confidence in the cabinet members Hillary names, when he is president then he can name his cabinet members. Coming in second in a two person race is not a win.

Sit down Bernie and shut up already. You LOST - time to allow the WINNER to do what winners do - move on and make the decisions.

But, she will not put up with any BS.. and I hope they don't leave cornel west on any damn "committee" of his.

I'd like to know how to get in touch the DNC committee so we can all voice our disapproval with back up evidence.

President Obama is the head of our Party and I don't want that vicious accuser anywhere near him.
