6. How HUMILIATING for Bernie! He's not going to win, is he?

 

He needs to drop out now. If he ever fancied himself as actually being some sort of leader, now is his opportunity to prove it by withdrawing; endorsing Joe Biden; starting the healing process and using these weeks to console and motivate his followers.

The window of opportunity is closing. Time is drawing short. If he waits until the convention to concede... and if he "disappears" after the convention for 6 weeks to write a book (or something) then his followers will wander around aimlessly... licking their wounds... still feeling said and mournful... resenting what happened... feeling "cheated" and believing falsely that the process was "rigged"... and their hatred and distrust of the party and desire for "revenge" will grow. (It's all just a little bit of history repeating.)

But... if Bernie acts now, then much of this can be nipped in the bud.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
