Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Good Amy is not Dropping.

I know there are many here who are worried that we are giving the nomination to Bernie and that would somehow be a disaster.
There is also a ton of Angst about a contested convention.

Balderdash and Poppycock. Bernie is not that selfish. If he goes into the convention leading with somewhere around 30-35% of the delegates there will have to be a compromise candidate. That candidate will almost have to be not his main challenger at that point.

If it is much above that then it will be trickier. If it is 40% plus then he should be the nominee. We all will just have to work our asses off.

But a contested convention may just be the only way we can unite the party. Bernie understands that as well as anyone.

Until that time let the contest continue and let the voters settle it.

3. I'm not so sure that Bernie will compromise.

 

He sure didn't in 2016, even after it was mathematically impossible for him to get enough delegates to win.

5. Right? No way will he go quietly

 

If he has a plurality, even by 1%, he’s going to expect to get the nomination. And it will be a shit show if he doesn’t get it.

4. A buddy of mine working for Mike

 

in GA said the moderates have been in contact with each other on possible ways to stop Sanders from getting 1991. He said there are several possibilities but they were all in through March 3.
