60. Why? It's not the "Bernie-Lite" administration. Bernie isn't Joe Biden's advisor...

... he's not a cabinet member. What good purpose would be served? Of all the members in the Democratic Caucus, Bernie Sanders ranks dead last in voting to support Biden's agenda. What could he possibly bring to the table that Joe Biden would be interested in?

But there's no reason why Bernie and Joe can'tsit down together to talk things over.
All I'm trying to say is that it would be a waste of time. Nothing worthwhile would come of it... other than a photo-op and a press conference (or memo/announcement) that would be used to bash Democrats or Biden.

Haven't we all had enough of our party being referred to as "coastal elites" or "ideologically bankrupt" (etc etc... no need to repeat all the slurs here, but there are a LOT of them, I assure you.) Those things are divisive, so why create a stage for anyone to spread that type of divisive rhetoric. It only leads to division and distrust... and that weakens our party. Anything that weakens Democrats only serves to benefit the GOP, Russia, and Trump.
