Bernie Sanders First to Sign Pledge to Rally Behind Democratic Nominee

Excerpt:

National progressive outfit Indivisible on Thursday launched a pledge compelling all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to rally behind the eventual nominee. Bernie Sanders was the first to sign it, the group revealed.

The “We Are Indivisible” pledge asks for three commitments from him and any other prospective signers, as first reported by BuzzFeed News. First, Indivisible’s pledge requests that candidates “make the primary constructive” by outlining their visions while respecting their opponents.

“I’ll support the ultimate Democratic nominee, whoever it is—period," the pledge also reads. “No Monday morning quarterbacking. No third-party threats. Immediately after there’s a nominee, I’ll endorse.”

And the group also wants a commitment that every candidate will “do the work to beat Trump,” including a promise that “As soon as there is a nominee, I will put myself at the disposal of the campaign.”

4. Not a surprise

Bernie is almost always on the record doing the right thing before anyone. I'm glad he is signing on to a policy-based and constructive campaign.

6. Would Bernie Bashers Welcome His Support

I have thrown in the towel trying to reason with people here on D.U. who refuse to recognize Bernie for the tireless progressive he is. In some of my exchanges, every angle I attempted always returned to, "Bernie's not a Democrat."

Question: I am certain that the nomination is Bernie's this time. However, if I were wrong and another candidate secured the Dem nomination, would those same voters welcome Sanders' support, the support of a man who isn't a real Dem in their eyes?
