The number of Bernie supporters who say they won't vote for HRC must be devastating. [View all]

All I'm seeing on Twitter this morning are Clinton supporters cajoling, begging and posting links to stories from other Clinton supporters cajoling and begging for us Bernie supporters to get behind Hillary.

One, from Salon, chided us to "woman up" and vote for her. LOL! Many are responding that they do plan to "woman up" and vote for Jill Stein if Bernie isn't the nominee. (You'd think a Clinton supporter would have seen that coming. Clinton isn't the only woman in the race).

And, now that Obama has quite possibly selected the most milquetoast of Supreme Court nominees, they don't even have that on the table. If this pro-prosecution/police, pro-corporation nominee is what the so-called "left" establishment wants, then there's really very little difference between a Hillary or a tRump on the majority of issues on which a Supreme Court may rule. I believe the ONLY thing Hillary would protect is choice. She wouldn't lift a finger to stop Citizens United or prison reform or to prosecute the folks on Wall Street who wrecked the nation.

Ah, well. I'm #StillSanders
