60. They want Bernie nominated

Sure, the DNC gave they Cornell West on the platform committee (after which he promptly endorsed the Green Party candidate for POTUS), the DNC agreed to a commission to discuss Superdelagates, and now they've given them the head of DWS, who is going to be out of a job after this election anyway. All that's left now is for the DNC to crown Bernie the nominee because a few people within the DNC didn't like him.

NOTHING will make the hardliners happy. That's my conclusion. They're after Donna Brazile now. Metric System Jul 2016 #1
Maybe. But the hiring seems to transform a unity-helping event into a unity-defeating event. Land Shark Jul 2016 #4
Dunno, public flogging might do it. Sorry to hear mob's going after Brazile emulatorloo Jul 2016 #14

I think we should just write off the extreme leftists making an issue of this and pivot right. MohRokTah Jul 2016 #2
"Pivot right". Seriously? nt DLevine Jul 2016 #6
Extreme leftists said "We won't vote unless DWS goes" MohRokTah Jul 2016 #8
While there are huge numbers of Independents, the # of votes truly on the fence is much tinker Land Shark Jul 2016 #12
REliabiulity is the factor. MohRokTah Jul 2016 #16
If that were a standard you would have to jettison any attempt to capture the center Land Shark Jul 2016 #24
History has proved time and again,... MohRokTah Jul 2016 #26
Maybe. But the far left only describes a small slice of that campaign but Land Shark Jul 2016 #27
Then it is my opinion that what constitutes "extreme left" to you is skewed from reality. eom MohRokTah Jul 2016 #30
I've met lots of folks in the Bernie campaign at the caucuses and convention Land Shark Jul 2016 #33
What extreme leftist do you speak of? Exilednight Jul 2016 #62
I choked on "pivot right" as well. Land Shark Jul 2016 #10

Bizarre, because Sanders positions are the opposite of Trump's positions. emulatorloo Jul 2016 #19
Dont be shortsighted or reckless Jemmons Jul 2016 #35
So I have to pretend Bernie's policies are the same as Trump's? emulatorloo Jul 2016 #37
No - you just have to not shot yourself in either foot. nt. Jemmons Jul 2016 #40
Perhaps I'm over-sensitive to those who claim to support Bernie but appear not to care about emulatorloo Jul 2016 #45
Im just pointing out a bit of information about human nature Jemmons Jul 2016 #54
No, you said youo WOULDN'T vote for Hillary MohRokTah Jul 2016 #20
Millions more voted for Hillary. Metric System Jul 2016 #13
"per Hillary's statement today she will become "honorary chair" of her 50-state strategy" Takket Jul 2016 #7
"You OWE me. Big Time. Remember that. You OWE me." cherokeeprogressive Jul 2016 #46

Why should Clinton waste time trying to appease the people NuclearDem Jul 2016 #17
She needs to leave today, not after she rubs it in Duckhunter935 Jul 2016 #25
Because she wants to be a president of ALL people, and can't just serve one slice Land Shark Jul 2016 #28
In general 'Honorary Position' = no power, no influence, no nothing. emulatorloo Jul 2016 #48
Hasn't Hillary been fund raising for 50 state effort? suffragette Jul 2016 #58
I agree. Scurrilous Jul 2016 #29
More of the same Duckhunter935 Jul 2016 #21
I am not in the least bit surprised XemaSab Jul 2016 #22
Other - I think realistically, Yo_Mama Jul 2016 #23
Interesting. But the resignation is NOT something Clinton can say she conceded or acquiesced to Land Shark Jul 2016 #31
You know, Land Shark, putting up a poll like this is what makes unity harder. PatrickforO Jul 2016 #32
Realizing the implications of this doesn't help unity Land Shark Jul 2016 #34
The issue is not "getting behind Hillary" Land Shark Jul 2016 #38
Unity is not conformity genna Jul 2016 #51
Realistically it changed the narrative about the RNC being incompetent plagiarists HereSince1628 Jul 2016 #36
But I think it will sadly have the opposite effect. Wasserman chairs, speaks, then honorary chair. Land Shark Jul 2016 #39
If true, comments about how DWS threatened to embarrass Obama HereSince1628 Jul 2016 #42
You forgot "Clinton won...Deal." Darb Jul 2016 #41
We're talking about winning unity. I thought that was sealed with resig, but not anymore Land Shark Jul 2016 #44
Go ahead, Darb Jul 2016 #49
So far the poll proves my fear: Hon. Chair changes resignation from unity-promoting to unity defeati Land Shark Jul 2016 #43
Really? A DU poll? Darb Jul 2016 #50
I agree with what you say Duckhunter935 Jul 2016 #53
Unity means suspending all belief and ignoring facts now, right? elehhhhna Jul 2016 #52
meh.... Red Mountain Jul 2016 #55
One can vote for Hillary and support party with $ etc, or not do anything bUT vote. Big difference Land Shark Jul 2016 #56
Exactly XemaSab Jul 2016 #57
I don't care if she's named honorary poobah of Narnia. Doesnt matter. Warren DeMontague Jul 2016 #59
If this is Hillary's idea of uniting the Democratic party, we're screwed! B Calm Jul 2016 #61
