8. I am not sure she will ever get the bernie independent and republican crossover votes

I am not sure the independents & crossovers will vote for her irrespective of what she says because even if Hillary adopts Bernie's platform, there is the question of trust.. For what we have seen from Hillary career is that she will say one thing publicly and do another privately for power and wealth not to mention her Slash and Burn (Bern), Then Worry About Party Unity Later plan.

So if Hillary ends up with the nomination it will likely be a republican win because of the Ralph Nader effect. There are many Bernie independents & crossovers supporters that might shift to Dr. Jill Stein whose platform is close to what Bernie's is.

Picking the lesser of two evils is not necessarily a choice for people of conviction.

Remember: Passion comes from conviction.
