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.
