    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 ?

            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 .

      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'.
