There's an old saying in racing, if you want to finish first first you have to finish

I think it applies to elections as much as it does to racing, pulling off the racetrack before the leader crosses the finish line is foolish and short sighted, engines have been known to blow leading the final lap and horses to falter when leading the home stretch.

Remember when Gore conceded the 2000 election and then took it back?

You don't have to get snippy about it.

1. The second place horse has to be in the same home stretch as the first place horse.

 

Sanders isn't. Bad analogy.

2. I have less than no problem with the democracy part of "a democracy within a Republic."

I do have a problem with people seeking to manipulate it and/or stifle it.
