Bernie does not need to drop out of the race ...

... but, this is no longer a race for the nomination.

He can continue hoovering up as many votes as he can get and have a strong progressive influence at the convention, but he needs to change the tone of his rhetoric and refrain from bullshitting his supporters.

His choice now is whether to positively build his movement for the future or burn down the establishment to the detriment of his legacy.

2. I know it ...

... in the same way I know that I won't be struck by lightening three times while simultaneously being eaten by a shark.

It's possible ...

... but, it ain't happenin'.

But look, I'm all for him continuing to garner votes so he'll have the strongest possible progressive influence on the convention.

Disillusioning and embittering his supporters by feeding them a line of bullshit at this point will do his legacy no favors.
