1. eventually the math sinks in.

He will stop around the same time Hillary did in 2008.
Otherwise hes a spoiler and was never a democrat.
Let everyone vote
don't do anything that allows Trump to win.
If hes in it for the people he will
If hes in it for himself.....we will find out.

5. Hillary's not in it for herself? Could have fooled me.

 

Your post does nothing to convince people to vote for Hillary, which is her biggest problem IMO. Convincing people to vote for her is what she needs to do. I'm not a republican doesn't cut, especially from someone who cuts bad deals with republicans.

By the way, considering the smiles you used to close your post, I hope you don't complain about Sanders supporters being childish for not jumping on the "inevitable" express.

4. It will feel satisfying

To watch his ass beaten in one remaining state after the other.

8. I think it's good that Bernie take this campaign all the way to the convention.

He deserves to play an important role there, and I look forward to his speech. It will probably be the most important speech of his career. There's been a lot of really unpleasant bickering on DU but I always liked Bernie in the Senate, and he did a great job of pulling Hillary to the left during this campaign. Even if he won't win the nomination (barring catastrophe) he accomplished what he originally set out to do.

Also, Bernie supporters in the remaining states deserve the chance to vote for their candidate. Bernie running a competitive race should have the full attention of the party, and signal that candidates with his policies are not only viable, they are the ultimate direction the party should take.

I wish Bernie would REMAIN a Democrat, but apparently he's already planned to switch his registration back to Independent for his Senate run.

10. I cannot fathom why any informed Democrat with good critical thinking abilities....

I cannot fathom why any informed Democrat with good critical thinking abilities would support Hillary. Shes Nixon in a pants suit or Dick Cheney without the snarl.

She's been so wrong over the years in mean ways that destroy lives. Shes a full blown Oligarch who pals around with the other Oligarch's that are wrecking the planet and destroying any reasonable expectation for us average people to enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Not to mention fueling climate change that means the end of the world as we know it in the near future. Humanity wrecked our children's future and the possibility of mass extinction merely for more money than most of us could spend in a hundred life times.

We've got a systemic cancer in all of our Institutions and she wants to sell us more cigarettes!

Hilary's character to me is best exemplified in her giggly; "we came, we saw, he died" which speaks to her sociopathic tendencies, which is almost a necessary requirement to be a successful Oligarch.

Bernie stands for everything they taught me in school about why America is such a great country founded on such great ideals. And he's been walking that walk since I was taught to "duck and cover" in second grade!
