    Bernie fought the good fight. For any hope of a political future and to have influence Sanders had to give his endorsement although I have no doubt he threw up a little in his mouth doing so.

    I'm not going to knock him. He has my admiration and respect for forever. Sanders took on Goliath. Not just the Clintons but the whole D establishment. This primary will go down in history as two men in two parties shaking the political pillars of heaven and hell.

    One made it across the finish line ahead of the other in this marathon of primaries. The other didn't. BUT and this is what we must remember. Both finished the race.

    Bravo gentlemen!

    Gee, is that Rosenthal whining?

    Say it isn't so.

    It's ok. Really it is. I'm thinking it's a win/win situation.

    Lemme 'splain this. When the US Chamber of Commerce gives your candidate an endorsement-you know you screwed up. They know she supports the TPP that she helped create. You have Dems that support fracking. Elected officials that support fracking. All of the ones that bitch about the free market have to eat a big bowl of shut it stew especially because they have (unwittingly or no) no problem implementing it into foreign countries as well as state-side. So, they can't bitch cry anymore about another "team" and they have jack all to run on in the future.

    And if Clinton loses and she just might.....well, the Democrats deserve that shit too.

    So, maybe this next time around they will figure it out.

    Can't applaud what Bernie did. I don't care how someone spins it, he dumped his integrity and honesty.

    Bernie is a lunatic. Anything from his platform that Hillary agreed to adopt is a terrible idea for the country. Vote 3rd party.
