2. I don't think they care about winning

Listening to Weaver and Devine, I don't think they care about winning at this point. Their aim is to keep the money rolling in and to create chaos. I think they probably also can't stand the thought of getting beaten by a woman.

4. with all that money rolling in you would think

he'd give some to the party. when asked the other day he said "maybe eventually". he doesn't care about the other candidates -- just himself and his agenda. i thought he was a nice guy but that bothered me.

5. Yup, and just to put to bed this argument that the Sander's campaign is....

going to roll into the convention with less pledged delegates and behind in the popular vote and take the nomination, let me say this..
1) DNC officials and elected democrats are not going to do that based off of a few polls versus Trump for an outsider.
2) As a black voter, assuming Sander's margins with African Americans stays the same, if the democratic party were to try to overrule the decisive decision by black voters to support Clinton over Sanders, there will be hell to pay. Every Black Media outlet, the CBC, and even Obama will voice their objections and that fantasy will be shut down quickly once Sanders tries it. All it takes is for John Lewis, James Clyburn, Maxine Waters, Cory Booker, or anyone else to go on national television and point out that this would silence an overwhelming majority of black voters on the basis of a few polls and every DNC member will fall in line behind Clinton.

6. sanders campaign feels the need to insult everyone who doesn't "feelthebern".. yet they want

Super Del favors and expect to "roll into the convention".. that may be big talk to keep the money flowing but I would hope that the leaders in the Democratic party stop him at the gate.

He's been nothing but demagoguery and hate when whipping up his fans to boo Hillary. He certainly can't run on his record.

And, his campaign has a history of record of trying to cheat... and getting busted for it. But, that hasn't stopped them.. Witness Nevada.

7. Not gonna happen.

He couldn't even win 57% in a state tailor made for him like Wisconsin--at 99% reporting he came in just shy at 56.5%.

9. A ten delegate gain is what Sanders has received. This will be negated by

super delegates when it shown she has the clear lead in delegate count.
