Give this some thought if you're concerned about Trump vs Clinton.

Most of the super-delegates committed to Hillary before either candidate announced their intentions. It's all documented in the Clinton Victory Fund story so I won't go into the details. As of today, we know Trump is the presumptive nominee, Hillary is leading in pledged delegates. And I will take a leap here and assume that one of the super-Ds goals is to do whatever is necessary to get their nominee to win the general election.

If Bernie was leading in pledged delegates today, we could expect Hillary supporters to use a whole litany of reasons why the super-Ds should back her. i.e. She's the real or only Democrat, she has more experience, and so on.

In the status quo, and with winning being the most important goal, where should the super-Ds throw their support?! If they back Hillary, with such high negatives, and she loses, how foolish will the super-Ds look? Hillary cannot pull independents and millenials to her side. With all the problems of Trump, it will not be enough to get Repubs to support her. They will more likely stay home or hold their noses and vote Trump.

Bernie's support from younger voters and Independents, especially those who were blocked from voting in primaries, is strong and growing. No other candidate on either side has attracted larger average crowds to their rally's than Bernie.

Therefore, it will be on the shoulders of the Super-Delegates to take their responsibilities seriously and decide where they need to throw their support. And it is very obvious that they need to strongly consider Bernie Sanders.

If you had an epiphany that Jane Sanders is driving dirty politics,

your problem is likely a bad case of gas. Try Gas-X and call me in the morning.

I got Micheal Moore's Where to Invade Next via iTunes.

And watched it yesterday. It was very eye opening and I recommend it to anyone and everyone. I found it amazing how different countries address the same issues and get the results they seem happy with.

Clinton tightens grip on transcripts.

Brookings Institution Report on Poverty

This should be of great concern to all of us, regardless of our political preferences. The report speaks for itself:

Obama tells Fox News his biggest regret is what transpired in Libya.

That speaks volumes to how poorly he let Hillary push him into it. Yet, he backs her. It's likely not due to her similar beliefs but her helping his legacy instead. God forbid Bernie should begin to improve things for the middle class by bringing in a new breed of progressives. By all means, we mustn't change the Obama accomplishments and trade agreements.

Thanks for bringing this topic up, MM

I like many others have no answer for you at this time. And some won't have answers for you the day before, the day of and the day after the election. Some are questioning if they're even in the party that supports their interest.

In case you've missed anything, there has been a lot of animosity on this site and in other media sources. How do you undo the choreographed opposition presented by your candidate, the DNC, the bought-in super delegates, the corporate media and slimers like David Brock? Most people have memories and don't just flip a switch and go the other direction. So Sanders supporters like me have a lot to consider. Asking us to rally now with Wisconsin, New York, Florida and California ahead is not only premature, it is rubbing it in our faces, even though your concern is genuine.

Will Hillary drop out before her indictment or

wait until the DOJ and FBI nail her to respectfully withdraw her candidacy? I'm fine with either but my preference is that she bail out sooner than later to allow Bernie to start focusing on Trump.

Just a thought and requesting input from all sides.

It is no secret that Hillary Clinton has a high unfavorability number. My question is, and I ask this respectfully, could the actions of her supporters (media, corporations, voters, super delegates, etc) be causing some of her unfavorable numbers to increase?

In other words, how much of her negatives are related to her and not to her support group?

She's a victim once again.

Two different Hillary spokesmen on TV today said Bernie is running an increasingly negative campaign. This is their justification for wavering on her accepting a debate in NY.

Bernie voted against the Brady Bill five times. Hillary accepts money from Wall Street. Both are accurate statements as presented. So how is Bernie being increasingly negative when Hillary's supporters are planting crap like racism, misogyny, and today's latest crap about Bernie being rude to his own wife.

This whole victimization shit is just so far out of hand and dishonest, it is sickening.
