Sanders aides not expecting campaign suspension Tuesday

Bernie Sanders is not poised to suspend his campaign or immediately endorse presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton after their meeting Tuesday night, but he intends to keep his pledge to help defeat Donald Trump, two people close to Sanders told CNN.

Tuesday marks the final primary contest as Democrats in Washington, D.C., vote.

The Democratic candidates are planning to meet Tuesday night, and a person close to Sanders said, "It should be amicable and hopefully constructive."

2. Takes weeks to audit bills, clean up tasks, shut off the lights.

There will be no 'challenge' here in Philadelphia.

3. Only thing that matters to me

Is his public presence of whether he goes after Clinton or not.

Nobody cares if he concedes, the primary is obviously over. That is a fact.

Whether or not he helps or hurts the general campaign matters. If he helps, fine; if he's neutral, fine; if he attacks Clinton or Democrats, he's awful.

5. He just said he will fight to open up the Democratic Party

 

In a news statement.

He didn't say "fight for the nomination" but made it clear he's going to keep fighting for the principles he ran on.

I say good.

18. Agree, Metroins, except for neutral.

There's too much at stake. Anyway, Sanders owes a large duty, a responsibility, and a debt to the Democratic Party. No one could stop him from walking away from all of them, but it wouldn't be okay.

"Opening" the Democratic Party is being mentioned, yet the party has always been wide open to anyone who wants to join. So the idea of "opening" primaries even further to hostile takeovers from outsiders coming in to overset the votes of the Democratic Party membership? Absolutely not.

I was for open primaries until this election--naively. Now I believe they should all be closed. The shockingly large and widespread anti-Democrat corruption of our primary was a wake-up call. What happened this year should never be allowed to happen again.

We can serve our democratic principles well by allowing registration in the party right up to the last week or so--however close will allow proper checking to avoid significant voter fraud.

6. You can suspend a campaign before all those details are done.

Hillary ended hers two days in 2008 after the last primary.

4. He said was going all the way to the convention. BERNIE doesn't lie.

7. He lied when he said he'd release multiple years of tax returns.

If he's staying in the campaign, when's he going to do that?

8. Since he will eventually concede, that is now a non-issue.

10. If he doesn't concede now, it's still an open issue.

He's hanging out there with that unfilled promise till he concedes.

17. He'll concede when it's right for him, not you. You're a spectator like I am.

 

Maybe he meant to say when everyone else does, including Republicans, like Hillary said about her transcripts. But it doesn't matter anyway. There has never been a requirement to provide them. Romney didn't. If you think he's hiding anything, don't vote for him.

19. It very much matters that he hasn't released them. Since 1976 every candidate

for President has released them, and he's giving Donald Trump an out.

In any case, he very clearly said he would release them during the primary. That ends today.

20. First, Mittens didn't provide them in 2012. Second, what pleasure do you get by getting into a

 

pissing contest with me, knowing your candidate won? It's so damn Hillbotlike. In two days you won't be throwing shit and neither will I. Let's just agree we aren't pen pals, okay?

22. The reason this matters is that Bernie is trying to have it both ways.

He should concede now, as Hillary did in 2008, 2 days after the last primary -- not wait till the convention.

But if he remains in the election then he should honor his promise to release multiple years of his full returns.

Mitt released two full years, which is one more year than Bernie.

But he hasn't been on the offense for a while now.

14. I've noticed, that's why I want him to stay in.

 

I have also noticed that pretty much every late night comedian has made jokes about him, and it will only get worse. He will be a totally laughing stock in a few more weeks.

He deserves it and a person who is ridiculed is less harmful to the general.
