Surprised that they each did what I would have thought the other should
have done. Ted gave his word he would support who ever won, and he
didn't. Bernie did not give his word and everything he said about Hillary
was true, and he still is backing her.
Upside down in my opinion, what do you think?
I'm fairly certain that Bernie said early and late in the stages he would NOT support her.
But here's the other important issue.
As much as I disagree with his position on a lot of topics, there isn't a complaint on the principles of Bernie Sanders.
Well, there wasn't until this speech.
It is an established FACT that the DNC conspired with Clinton the entire time in the run-up to the nomination.
A truly principled man of the people would not say let's sweep it under the rug in the spirit of party unity.
His 'revolution' was one in name only, if he gasses out at the absolute peak time to spark one!
Instead, he focuses on the single least important aspect of the nomination: we have a female candidate.
Who the eff cares?
As with Obama who was credited with being the first black president.
Was it seminal (ha) for the first gay football player?
According to the press, YES!
A thousand times: YES!
And... then he was cut on account of not being good enough.
Only those interested in quotas, of falsifying diversity make a big deal out of labels.
The Facebook crowd lives for shiny toys, but thinking adults only want the best, most qualified to be in their positions.
That Bernie can't see that his virtuous path qualified him eminently above Clinton is proof positive that he isn't
qualified to lead.
That he now wishes to crow about landmark moments instead of being concerned with finding the best?
He is more irrelevant than ever before.
Thankfully, she will never take office so he's even going to miss out on a plumb cabinet position.
And now back to the same...
