54. SwampG8r, no one "hates" what Bernie

represents politically. You should not somehow imagine that irritated blowback against the bad behavior of some of his followers is somehow a rejection of his policies. It's a rejection of their behavior.

I, for instance, really don't like bernistas saying his opponent makes them feel ill, or is a war criminal, is bought and paid for by Wall Street, belongs in jail, etc. ad nauseum. This disgraceful behavior has absolutely nothing to do with what Bernie "represents" and everything to do with their behavior. Which they own, and no one else.

The corollary being just as valid, regardless of the horse you rode in on. However, I think we may safely presume you'll rationalize the same behavior as righteous-- bias can do that.

58. How so?

Sanders overplayed his hand. It's clear that he won't endorse, and Democrats have moved on. Sanders's supporters can decide for themselves which side of history they want to be on.

The vaunted Sanders "let's primary them!" threat has pretty much evaporated after the results of the Nevada contests on June 14. Not a single Sanders's endorsed challenger won. The most embarrassing loss was by 60%. So much for the movement. So much for the threat.

At this point, Sanders's petty demands have nothing to do with advancing a progressive agenda. It's all about personal revenge against individual Democrats and getting back at an organization that he has been exploiting for over a year for not handing him a nomination that he didn't win, but feels entitled to.

If she has won, just go on. Instead what I see is Hillary fans saying that if she loses the GE then it's Bernie's fault.

On one thread I am reading excuses for Hillary making Bush look good, and on another excuses for Hillary attacking Bernie's supporters.

Bizarro world. I hope Skinner puts and end to it soon. If he doesn't DU is destroyed and party unity is likewise damaged.

Evidence of that weakness is her supporters stating that if Bernie supporters don't get behind her she will lose the GE.

Were she a strong candidate and her supporters felt that to be true, they would move on and quit harping on Bernie.

Their continued obsession with Bernie and his challenge, tells me that they are very afraid of how weak she is even in their eyes.

96. HRC is not a weak candidate. She walloped Bernie and is ahead of Trump.

The only reason I am looking for that endorsement is not to push Bernie supporters into voting for Hillary. I think most will automatically do so when the GE gets going. I think those that won't are the minority anyways.

This is about decorum. It is bad form for a democratic opponent to not be honest and concede his campaign when it is clearly over. It is about bowing out graciously and not being a sore loser. You thank your opponent for a good game. It is just good sportsmanship. And he is lacking this.

I want him in there fighting to get the best party and platform we can get. The rules state this is allowed. The poor sports who think Bernie should all of a sudden play by their new rules is what is destroying party unity. Take a bow.

Again, what I see from posts like yours is just plain childish behavior that proves how weak HRC is, in that the continued attacks on Bernie show your fear of HRC being not catered too.

She is not the queen, so quit acting like she is.

100. My post is childish? Not even close. YOUR post is childish.

I never went personal but you are quick to call me names. I pointed out the truth and maybe that hurts but that's life. Bernie lost. He is not the first person to lose a damn primary so quit acting like it is an affront to the entire democratic process---esp when more people voted for Hillary. So while I am glad he speaks for you, he doesn't speak for a while lot more people.

I think you care more about part unity than I do. And i don't think the fear here has anything to do with Hillary but perhaps has everything to do with you supporting a candidate that is making himself more irrelevant by the day by his bad sportsmanship.

And I am telling you that has nothing to do with any of this.

Calling him poor sport is childish and is in actuality a projection of the childishness.

Get this straight: What Bernie is doing is part of the so called game. He is doing what can be expected and is accepted by the adults.

Just because he doesn't bow to the queen is no reason for yall to get your knickers in a twist. But the fact knickers are in a twist shows fear and weakness.

Bernie can influence a lot that happens between now and the convention. To claim he can't is dumb. Not saying you are dumb, just the idea that the game is over is dumb.

Bernie has lots of power, backed by over 12 million active Democratic Party voters. Denial of that is dumb.

No one is denying he has 12 million voters. But I think it is reasonable to expect a great deal of those voters to automatically pivot to the GE. In light of who we have waiting for us, I think that is a safe assumption.

Trump, in his own sick way, is helping Hillary along nicely.

6. At the end of the primary, the opposing sides within the party come together

in support of a common goal/opponent. I'm willing...barely...to let Sanders play this out til the convention if he endorses her formally AT the convention.

The Machiavellian part of me thinks there's slight chance that all of this has been secretly handshaked to anyways, to get more exposure and coverage by the breathless media going in to the convention. If he had conceded already, there'd be less drama in July for the talking heads to squeak about.

10. She does not need to "earn" the votes.

She won based on her priorities and action plans. If you disagree with them, vote for someone else.

Regarding hatred: I have no hatred for Sanders. I think he is a selfish life-long politician who loves the adoring fans and cannot give them up. Hillary and Sanders have nearly the same ideas to make the country better. Clinton just has obviously thought about how to turn those ideals into action.

The winner is not usually black-mailed by the loser. Of course, the winner is not usually a woman.

And..he also voted for regime change. So much for standing up for principles--but he is sure good at talking about them.

And the excuse that he had to vote for funding the war to help the troops is a big fat lie. The power of Congress includes holding the purse strings. No funding for the war = no war. He could have made his stance. He could have been the person he touts himself to be.

It is all a bunch of baloney.

44. Being a civil servant does NOT equal establishment.

 

I think you're confused here some.

The Establishment generally denotes a dominant group or elite that holds power or authority in a nation or organization. The Establishment may be a closed social group which selects its own members (as opposed to selection by merit or election) or specific entrenched elite structures, either in government or in specific institutions.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Establishment


The establishment is the DNC and the party itself. Sorry but Bernie is an indy and though he may caucus with the Dems, he also holds his own viewpoints. What is it you guys were jawing about recently? How he criticized Obama? Establishment politicians like Hillary don't do that.

endorsing her should be a matter of easy decision-making. He'll come around, though, in time.

Done settling, sick of decay and lying, and Sanders is not going to "come around". He has never settled. Why would he now?

She and Romney are two of the same flock, anti people

If it is Trump, she gets a landslide

I do believe he took a cowards route to running for president. His lack of conviction to run as an independent, or better yet a socialist, shows he was only in it to disrupt or to glean the benefits of the DNC that he despises so much. Either way it shows a lack of character.

28. Not a chance

 

Honestly, I've been voting democrat my whole life and I always feel unfulfilled. It's a lot like how it was being a Red Sox fan before 2004. They did great right up to the end and then let you down in a spectacular way. I think that if more and more of us vote our consciences, the greater the chance will be that we can get a people's movement going. Bernie started that movement, but if he is out I feel it would be best for me to vote Green Party. That's where my heart and mind are as they stand for the same values and issues as me. Even if I lived in a swing state I would vote this way. The system is so grossly overrun by dirty money and pay to play politics funding the same people that pollute the earth, exploit impoverished countries with slave wages and wage wars for oil and profits. I don't want to contribute to that cycle anymore. Go ahead and say I'm voting for Trump.

They have two completely different platforms.

So I support Sanders doing what he's doing, which is to pledge to defeat Trump while refraining from an "endorsement."

Top Aide: Sanders Could Endorse Clinton Before Convention
http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/283976-sanders-could-endorse-clinton-before-convention-report

I could see makng the case for no endorsement. But the final totals weren't close:
Hillary Clinton: 16,663,802 (55.5%)
Bernie Sanders: 12,872,148 (42.9%)

Clinton over Sanders by 3,791,654 votes.

Hillary Clinton: 2,218 pledged delegates
Bernie Sanders: 1,833 pledged delegates

Hillary Clinton: 555 Unpledged delegates who say they will vote for her.
Bernie Sanders: 47 Unpledged delegates who say they will vote for him.

Hillary Clinton: 2,773 total delegates
Bernie Sanders: 1,880 total delegates

Clinton: 34 primaries & caucuses won
Sanders: 23 primaries & caucuses won

Clinton has 390 more delegates than needed.
Sanders still needs 503 delegates.

65. Sanders has made it clear that he will never endorse.

When Hillary's VP list was leaked on Wednesday, and the campaign made it clear that Sanders hasn't made the cut, the writing was on the wall. They're done with him. They will not allow him to hold the process hostage to his ridiculous, and increasingly personal demands.

Sanders been in a bubble so long that he imagines that he yields great power and influence, but his moment has come and gone.

As for "earning" support...who on earth makes up the apocryphal army of the self-important who have to be seduced and cajoled into doing the right thing? Grow up.

and utter arrogance that turns people away. And his sky-high goals don't have workable plans to make them possible.

Bernie lost, and is a sore loser - setting a poor example for his mostly young audience.

Real Democrats will vote for the nominee. She'll get along just fine without Bernie and his lack of integrity.

I believe he was supposed to take out Jeb, but never in their wildest dreams did they think it would be Hillary v Donald. The perfect match up really. Both have exceptionally high unfavorables, so you would THINK it would be a walk in the park for Hillary to beat him.
We shall see. Regardless of the media trying to sell fear, I see a lot of very enthusiastic Trrump supporter out there who despise Hillary more than fear Trump.

I have no problem with Hillary moving to the middle to get the votes needed to win. If Bernie and his supporters are adamant about staying home, the entire party will have to swing to where the votes are. And it will. This election is just as winnable with millions of more Moderates as it is with a couple of million more unreliable fringe voters.
