Why should she?

Should Bernie repudiate any Republicans voting for him in open primaries (or in the GE)? After all, I have heard that, unlike Hillary, Bernie can attract Indie and Republican voters and work with the Republicans in Congress. Did we give President Obama grief for attracting some Republican votes in 2008 (and probably in 2012)?

What are the Sanders "revolutionaries" going to do

the minute that Bernie fails to deliver on a promise, comes up with a bad policy/strategy, has to "compromise" with Republicans, and/or fails to show up with his "comfortable shoes" to walk a picket line (because, you know, Presidents are pretty busy with a country/world to run)? Whether or not Obama turned out to be the perfect Progressive POTUS, there is so much more that progressive activists could have been doing the past 8 years at the state, local, and congressional level to ensure more progressive policies and improved quality of life for more people (i.e. voting, GOTV). President Obama got TWO years with a Democratic majority to do stuff and only a matter of months when he didn't have to worry about Republicans filibustering stuff to death. The rest of his Presidency, he has had to cut deals with massive Republican obstructionists and wrecking balls in the House (and now the Senate) just to keep the federal government semi-functional.
