If he can't accept defeat gracefully, then that confirms to me that he would not have been a good president. These are the fundamental skills that a true leader possesses. A willingness to change, to admit defeat, to treat others with respect, to be able to accept the results of an election, to be willing to share, compromise, find common interests and mutual benefit.

The behavior we're seeing now is NOT what one expects to see from a true leader and a true statesman. History will not be kind to Bernie Sanders.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
