There must be some angry liberals who now see Sanders as a pretty typical politician instead of the messiah of real change , So much for "the outsider " candidate ?
Sure, there are a few. However, before Bernie endorsed Hillary, he managed to pull the Democratic platform considerably further to the left. It's called using your influence to create change.
And yet compromised himself to everything he's campaigned against in the system , wall street and corporate influence and money , ..........? So much for his anti-establishment rant and political integrity ?
Please explain specifically how he compromised himself. He has been working within estathe blishment to effect change. Who should he endorse instead, Little Donnie?
His rhetoric has been incredibly anti- DNC establishment , Socialist in fact , Tear apart the banking system etc..................and yet readily endorses the queen of mean ? Come on PP , you gotta' admit that's pretty bad , and easily so typical of those with no integrity .
Rant and integrity...
Maybe he's pinching his nose, you know, like you.
Not really. I supported Bernie and feel he did the best job he could against the rigged machine of American Politics. It was just that the American people are not ready to make the tough decisions that are required to reverse our downward spiral. We live in a dream land of everything will be okay if we do what we are told by the party politics. We ask our leaders to make bold moves yet we are as timid as a church mouse when it comes to the meat of making progress with our political leadership. My proof is that with a 16% approval rating of Congress is that we will re-elect 93% of them. We are the problem my friend.
Horse, Bernie did what he had to, he was no going to be responsible for not allowing for a unified Democratic front against Trump in the fall.
Unlike so many, he the only truly unselfish candidate in the race, sacrificing personal ambitions for the good of the whole. I think that there is a whole lot of man there.
Let's see how many concessions and sacrifices for the good of the whole happens with GOP convention.
You've got to admit , Sanders is a loner in ideology and yet he so easily pushes the Hillary "like" button . Which tells me that he 's willing to sell out for the worse possible political compromise. Explain that alone please ?
I know you'd like to frame things a particular way, but please at least define what you mean by your typical overwrought rhetoric.
First, when you say Bernie "so easily pushes the Hillary 'like' button," please explain. From where I sit, Bernie held out an endorsement until he had wrangled a bunch of concessions on the Democratic platform. In fact, his endorsement came later than any other endorsement. So, please explain how Bernie so easily pushed the "like" button.
Secondly, what do you mean by "worse [sic] political compromise"? How did Bernie end up on the "worse" [sic] end of this political compromise? What exactly did he give up?
In an earlier post, you said he "compromised himself." This implies some sort of sleazy deal or favor he received in exchange for endorsing Hillary. What, exactly, did he do to compromise himself?
If you're going to use this dramatic language throughout your overwrought posts, at least explain yourself.
Pure un-adultered hypocrisy. Bernie shot himself in the foot from the beginning anyway by not attacking Hillary heavily . It's as if he constantly courted her for VP or something instead of attacking her weakness'.

Does Bernie Sanders' endorsement of Hilary Clinton matter?They are in the same party, doesn't this make them "Teammates" in a way? Although they have many different viewpoints, how does this affect your judgement on Mr. Sanders, and why?

I was driving back from Ms. Lilly's this morning when I heard a political discussion concerning speculation whether Hillary Clinton might consider Elizabeth Warren as her V.P., and whether Senator Warren would consider such an offer.It was like one of those Jet.com commercials with the exploding...

His message speaks of an unfair system focusing on the elite and powerful. Let’s be honest and acknowledge what we are talking about. We are talking about a rapid movement in this country toward a political system in which a handful of very wealthy people and special interests will determine who...

The failure to connect was with the working man , Bernie said ! So just who is supposed to be surprised by that revelation . But then ,why would an organization of absolute entitlement promotion ever connect with the people who have to pay for that...

I hope it does happen. Hillary declined to debt Bernie before the June primary, but Trump said he would spar with Sanders. Sanders tweeted, "Game on"! On ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, Donald said he would give the money earned to charity, and if Bernie would give a nice sum...
