32. There are no guarantees for 'never happened" scenarios

However, had Sanders not run against Clinton and instead joined her team, and had used his potential appeal with young people to gather them into the fold for Hillary instead of giving them reasons to hate her, I believe that Hillary might well have won. Surely some of his eventual supporters would not have distributed so much filth about Hillary on social media. Surely with all of he college students and recent graduates in the states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, and given the fact that millennial voting in those states was down and that many young people voted for 3rd party candidates, had Sanders not run it would have made a difference.

It is no accident that the Republicans ultimately came together and voted for one of the worst candidates in history of this country better than traditional democratics came home to vote for Hillary. Do I hold Sanders and his worst supporters at least somewhat responsible for that - damn right I do.

But Sanders was selfish - he insisted in on primarying Hillary, just like he wanted someone to primary Obama, to push Hillary to the left. And most of all he wanted to push his sacred REVOLUTION. Well, I hope he enjoys Trump as much as the rest of us will.
