71. That's my prediction

I expect he will eventually concede and be gracious, but I don't expect him to hit the campaign trail for her more than once or twice. It just wouldn't make sense - he fundamentally and genuinely disagrees with her about a lot of things. Plus, I don't know that she really wants him to play as active a role as she played in 2008.

I would rather see him do what he has to do to try to talk sense into the BoB people but spend most of his time helping downballot progressives.

31. That's my take as well.

He will go after Trump aggressively, but will do little direct campaigning FOR Hillary. Honestly, that's probably the best for Clinton. Bernie's supporters would see him campaigning against Trump as being consistent while his supporters would view his direct support with suspicion. That might not be satisfying to Clinton supporters, but it would likely in the end yield more votes for Clinton.

...with you. I have no desire to associate with someone who is gleeful at the misfortune of fellow Democrats. The complete lack of sympathy for you fellow Democrats and the fact that you feed off our despair should tell anyone reading this about the content of your character.

Yes, because I supported Bernie, you are happy and gleeful that we lost and, yes, when I think about the consequences to my family and my grandchildren, it does hurt. It is painful. Just as you are joyful and gleeful because a politician you like appears to have "won". Why is it wrong for us to feel pain but for you to feel joy and glee is different and good?

You are gleeful of your fellow Democrats' loss, pain, and hurt. That says a lot about you.

That's all I have to say because I will no longer allow you to feed off my pain and disappointment and despair - because a candidate you like won makes you gleeful and me and the one I like don't matter to you at all and are only fodder for your gleeful and joyful schadenfreude.

First off, if Bernie does well enough today he could actually have as many or slightly more pledged delegates than she does. Which means the supers will be in a real quandary for the Convention.

Plus, the FBI investigation is still hanging over her.

As far as stumping for Hillary, I hope he does but this was a hard fought campaign, both side attacked each other hard and he's sure to be disappointed by losing but Hillary beat him fair and square. Give Bernie time, I bet he'll be right there with us very soon if he's not already.

70. I don't expect him to

I expect him to eventually endorse her, but I don't see him actively hitting the trail for her like she did for Obama in 2008. He has much more fundamental policy differences with Hillary than Hillary and Obama had in 2008, he probably doesn't plan to run again given his age, and as far as I know he doesn't need her help paying off mountains of campaign debt (could be wrong on that last one).

I will be disappointed if he doesn't eventually step aside and plays the role of spoiler, but I don't expect him to spend a lot of time on the trail for her. I doubt she even wants him to.
