Response to JaneyVee (Original post)

85. It looks to me like he said a whole lot of nothing.

 


Take out the little dig at Clinton he adds for distraction (i.e., "And I can tell you, I got a lot of push-back from the Clinton campaign at the time, when I published that piece. "


"I argued that super-delegates should wait, should look and listen to what the voters do, and follow"


The super delegates should wait until the Convention. (For what it's worth, I agree.)

"And I think if they do, all the way through the end of the voting, that will strengthen our party, and certainly strengthen our hand if we succeed with voters between now and June.

Succeeding "with voters between now and June" is subjective. What is his definition of success?

"...and certainly strengthen our hand"

Strengthen their hand for what? Trying to overturn super delegates at the convention against the will of the voters?
Pushing Hillary further left? Swaying Bernie supporters to vote for Hillary as Bernie had said months ago?

He is just speaking out of both sides of his mouth. If he never makes a decisive statement that he would never try to overturn super delegates, he then has to stick to it or it labels the campaign "yuuuge hypocrites" as it is a large part of Sanders' platform, but they've already hinted that that is what they are going to do. It's a sad attempt to, sort of, walk back the statement without actually walking it back either.
