    Neither was 2016. Bernie started at 4% with Martin O'Malley, James Webb and Lincoln Chafee, little known by the country. Bernie rose to be remembered as the only other candidate because he did so historically well.

    I'll gladly throw a tantrum. I refuse to participate in a political party that does not want to serve my interests. If you had any scruples or morals you'd be able to at least sympathize.
    Democrats need to realize that "Bernie or Bust" is already a compromise position.

    You mean the essay authored nearly 50 years ago that was actually a progressive piece addressing the tensions underlying changing and traditional gender norms ( The Bernie Sanders 'Rape Fantasy' Essay, Explained : It's All Politics : NPR )? Hamfisted writing from a then 30 or so year old Bernie isn't going to be anywhere close to devastating.

    The Socialists already have a political party. Why would you throw a tantrum after failing to hijack the Democratic Party when you could simply join theirs?

    Thank you for admitting your selfishness. Was that so hard?

    If you had any scruples or morals you'd be able to at least sympathize.


    You haven't the slightest clue what morals are. Morals to you are nothing more than, "If I don't get MY WAY, I'm going to throw a temper tantrum and help give America four more years of Trump."

    This might be the one saving grace of the electoral college, because Washington state is going blue anyway.

    Then you are a tool of the Fascist Right. Hows that for morality?

    Cool, but not everyone can be Tom Sawyer. That fence will still need to be painted. No reason that the painters should starve or die from treatable conditions.

    If you think that I'm the kind of person who needs to be convinced to overlook that essay, then you are going to be in for a world of hurt in November. And so will our country.
