The End Is Coming: Top Sanders adviser hints at a quiet finish - The Washington Post

Is the end nigh? (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer)

THE MORNING PLUM:

There’s a whole lot of hand-wringing among Democrats right now over Bernie Sanders’s vow to keep on trying to flip super-delegates even if he continues to trail badly in the popular vote and pledged delegate count — a quest that, he says, could spill on to the convention floor in Philadelphia in July. Both Sanders himself and his campaign manager Jeff Weaver have rattled this saber.

But now senior Sanders adviser Tad Devine has telegraphed a much more likely endgame — one that would be a whole lot quieter and less contentious. In an interview with Rachel Maddow, Devine was asked whether this strategy is in sync with Sanders’s high-minded campaign, and he answered, in part:

“The key test is succeeding with voters. In 2008 I wrote a piece that they published in the New York Times right after Super Tuesday, and I argued that super-delegates should wait, should look and listen to what the voters do, and follow the will of the voters. And I can tell you, I got a lot of push-back from the Clinton campaign at the time, when I published that piece.

“But I believe that today — that our super-delegates, that our party leaders, should let the voters speak first. And I think if they do, all the way through the end of the voting, that will strengthen our party, and certainly strengthen our hand — if we succeed with voters between now and June.”

1. "The End is Coming"

I don't believe anything the Washington Post has to say. They are nothing but a talking-point factory for the Clinton campaign.

The Sander's campaign quotes in this article seem to contradict the headline.

The Washington Post has become a joke.

83. “I want to urge Bernie supporters to tone down negative

characterizations of Hillary and Hillary supporters to do the same with regard to Bernie. I know both candidates personally. Both are thoughtful and dedicated people who care deeply about this nation. Either of them would be a thousand times better president than any of the Republican candidates….It’s important that we not jeopardize that future joint effort through excessive divisiveness now.”

Although, he may have overplayed his hand this week with all the saber rattling and threats. I hear his phone banking is down 85%. That's not good news for Bernie and his revolution.

9. I don't think he is prepared for how quickly his "Movement" will collapse as his followers...

begin to understand he has already lost.

I have a friend who is a marriage counselor. She always says that the amount of time and effort that someone puts into a relationship has a direct baring on the length of time it takes to recover from it's loss and to move on.

Most of Bernie's adherents have only spent months idolizing him. They will recover quickly. The hard core Naderite Super Left may never recover. They now belong to Bernie even in defeat. That's OK. I'm sure Elizabeth Warren will be happy to get the off her back!

31. Walk away, I mostly agree, but I believe the

hard-core as you call them will be looking for a new leader to follow. A better bern.

As for Warren, definitely! You know, I'd forgotten, but the Boston Globe reported some time ago that Warren had said repeatedly that she would endorse someone during the primary. She notably has not as it turns out (particularly Sanders when it would have done him some real good), but it seems very likely that she would take a stand if Sanders refused to accept the results of the primaries and tried to take it to the convention.

An honorable and highly responsible transition to winning 2016 for as many Democrats as possible, while at the same time continuing his efforts to change American thinking, is, I hope, Sanders' next step. Doesn't mean he has to concede before the last state has voted. I see no reason why he shouldn't stay in the national spotlight promoting his message as long as possible -- as long as he is part of building our party's strength for the GE.

65. I don't know why people keep talking about "idolizing" someone who expresses our policies and ideals

Perhaps some do. I never have but I definitely support Bernie because we share the same policies and ideals.

If Hillary's policies and character were acceptable to me, I would consider supporting her.

24. Exactly

Those who continue to point out how they would NEVER vote for Hillary, or that everyone should write in Bernie's name in November, are the ones who in the majority of cases where never going to voter for Hillary, or any Democrat come November. Their goal has always been to divide the voters by any way possible. Play the Hillary supporters against the Bernie supporters and hope they can convince enough of them to not vote for the Democrat come November.

Why would I bother to enumerate the great things Hillary has done for women and children here and around the world. At this point our choices are made. I assure you that nothing you could possibly say would change my mind about anything.

Here's this

Iraq War authorization

When President George W. Bush sought authorization to launch a war in Iraq in October 2002, Clinton and Sanders’ votes were split. Clinton, the junior senator from New York, voted yes. Sanders, then Vermont’s only representative, voted against it after delivering an impassioned speech on the House floor.

Clinton has since called her vote "a mistake."

Nothing laughable about Bernie "I have a D rating" Sanders' callous votes against the Brady Bill and the bill that would allow the parents of murdered children to sue Gun makers.
Bernie (like Trump) loves to sue but when it comes to victims of gun violence, he decided to vote to keep his job in his "tiny rural state".

As I previously said I am down with them as long as they don't include indictments.

80. My late husband went to Hunter for Geology. He was a mountain climber.

Before we were married we lived on 57th St and at night we used to climb the Museum of Natural History and any building we could get away with. Memories!

Like you, all of my friends and family were Ivy League. I graduated from Fairleigh Dickenson University because they let me work my way through. I think that the two majors they offered were Dentistry and a Pharmaceutical MBA program (possibly worse than dull).

Keep up the good fight here Tuesday night is going to be a big party!!!

The reason I know she was there is because one of my profs told me.

Stalking us all over this site and picking us off one by one??? Or maybe the space they gave us when they routinely trolled out private forum and baited Hillary supporters into ridiculous and undeserved hides????

They are going to take their space back in November when Hillary becomes the POTUS! Then they can spend all day insulting, demeaning and lying about President Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. Face it. It will be even worse than what they did to President Obama and this time they won't wait a year.

71. Bernie has promised to take it to the convention.

I do not believe he will renege on that. Every progressive that wants the D party to turn left will have a chance to say so with a primary vote for Bernie, and a voice at the convention. I feel sure of that.
And the happiest vote I will have cast in my entire 60 years will be made this Tuesday, in PA.
Thank you, Senator Sanders.

85. It looks to me like he said a whole lot of nothing.

 


Take out the little dig at Clinton he adds for distraction (i.e., "And I can tell you, I got a lot of push-back from the Clinton campaign at the time, when I published that piece. "


"I argued that super-delegates should wait, should look and listen to what the voters do, and follow"


The super delegates should wait until the Convention. (For what it's worth, I agree.)

"And I think if they do, all the way through the end of the voting, that will strengthen our party, and certainly strengthen our hand — if we succeed with voters between now and June.”

Succeeding "with voters between now and June" is subjective. What is his definition of success?

"...and certainly strengthen our hand"

Strengthen their hand for what? Trying to overturn super delegates at the convention against the will of the voters?
Pushing Hillary further left? Swaying Bernie supporters to vote for Hillary as Bernie had said months ago?

He is just speaking out of both sides of his mouth. If he never makes a decisive statement that he would never try to overturn super delegates, he then has to stick to it or it labels the campaign "yuuuge hypocrites" as it is a large part of Sanders' platform, but they've already hinted that that is what they are going to do. It's a sad attempt to, sort of, walk back the statement without actually walking it back either.

111. It isn't incumbent on Bernie to quiet down the campaign. Clinton and her surrogates need

to acknowledge both the extraordinary support garnered by Bernie and the core democratic ideals that he has championed. Clinton and her supporters need Bernie more that the other way around.
