Hillary needs to offer Bernie the VP. [View all]

Van Jones said something important on CNN. In 2008 the insurgent outsider candidate "Obama" won that contest so the establishment "Hillary" supporters had to come alone. Now its the establishment candidate that is going to win, but its going to be harder for the supporters of the insurgent candidate to come over because they aren't necessary loyal to the party like the establishment.

Do the smart thing Hillary for the good of the Country.
