Response to Ferd Berfel (Original post)

19. I expect most Sanders supporting democrats to go with HRC

It wouldn't surprise me if most Dem-leaning independents do the same thing.

BUT,

Voting for HRC is not the same as abandoning criticism of her from the left or criticism and activism against the Neoliberal New Dems. I expect those things to continue as they pretty much have with growing strength for over a decade.

I don't expect progressive democrats, who by dint of character expect more and are impatient to get it, are going to just disperse after the convention.

They may be run off this board, but probably not out of democratic politics. Dems still do need voters and as it stands pretty close to half of Dems have bought into the need for progressive reform of the democratic party.
