45. no, he thinks he can push his ideas and also win big in Nov

Hillary will win easy, everybody knows this. He is getting the most he can for his donor list. He is not hurting anyone's chances in NOV, he is just pushing for and getting concessions that will mean a lot to a great many. If he had just laid down and quit when everybody wanted a great deal of good would have been lost. I'm glad he never quit fighting for what he believes in

Wtf?

I mean everybody knows who Wolf is, his name isn't Jake or Jay.

The more he calls Wolf the wrong name, the more Wolf pushes him.

9. I'll elaborate

Telling Bernie it's over and getting him to admit it's over. Then pressing on when Sanders will endorse, then asking if he supports Democrats.Then asked if the TPP was the only issue.

Asked Bernie if he thinks the email thing is over, Bernie says "Now it goes to the DOJ"

Essentially he's getting Bernie to admit he's not backing Democrats because he can't give a real answer.

He's now asking if Bernie is a Democrat and Bernie won't say yes; but he did just say if he runs again it might say D instead of I next to him in VT.

Now Bernie wants Ban on Fracking (lol), $15 fed minimum wage, and a Carbon tax (lol). Two of those 3 are definitely not happening in our current political climate.

35. Watch the CNN Interview with Wolf

He waffles on everything.

Back and forth. One moment he'll say he supports Dems, the next moment he trashes them, then says he might be a Dem, might not; might endorse, but might not.

Members on this board sitting at home doing nothing are providing more help than Bernie. He just gives Trump ammunition.

11. Actually as a Clinton supporter and one who is disappointed in Sanders' attitude lately...

...I think he's doing a great job fighting off Blitzer's obnoxious, leading questions.

He's been trying to bait Sanders into saying something that they could harp on the rest of the week, and Sanders hasn't bitten. Great job, and pretty much told Blitzer that his questions are idiotic without actually coming out and saying it.

I think it's the other way around, Sanders took Blitzer to school. One of his best appearances (in my mind) since the primaries ended.

... had 40%...

He has little leverage, I can't wait to see what the "rally" during the dem convention looks like

25. Perhaps that is because Sanders sees that the party is lost

And he's trying to fix all that is wrong with it before he falls in line like the good soldier he is expected to be. Or is pointing out flaws in the party not allowed now?

40. Agreed. Or perhaps he was perplexed and maybe a little disturbed that he was even asked that.

"Jake " was just looking for a gotcha response the whole interview.

27. No, Bernie took him to school

And fought back the RW talking points about HC. Wolf asked Bernie if she should get briefings, as "some" in Congress said she should not. He said that the Rethugs are politicizing the investigation further because they don't have anything to discuss that directly affects Americans such as health care as a right, income inequality, raising the minimum wage. He also said that HC's new plan for higher education was a bold step for working families who can't afford college.

29. If Bernie can't definitively say he's a Democrat now, and in the future, we shouldn't listen to him.

 

There's no point in humoring someone who is going to abandon our party anyway. It's a hostage negotiation.

31. Maybe he's trying to help the party

What's wrong with pointing out the many flaws that exist within the Democratic party, including it's presumptive nominee. Is everyone, Sanders included, supposed to just get in line and nod our heads in agreement with everything? Seems kind of silly to me, considering all of the valid points he makes about the party selling itself out.
