It’s never easy, losing a campaign. It’s like a death in the family:
Delivering prepared remarks following his meeting with the president, Sanders pledged to remain in the race through next Tuesday’s District of Columbia primary. Despite his insistence to keep his campaign alive, Obama announced his long-awaited support for Clinton, saying in a campaign video, “I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office.”
His endorsement was followed by former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s, whose support will likely be sandwiched — and overshadowed — in between Obama and Warren’s, which is expected to come during an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
Even while pledging to soldier on, Sanders on Thursday signaled the end-time was near, telling reporters he looked forward to collaborating with Clinton “in the near future” to defeat Donald Trump and create a more inclusive government.
“We want him to be our partner, to support her fulsomely,” Podesta told MSNBC. “He said today that he is looking forward for them to get together. When she called him on Tuesday night, she suggested that, that they get together and move forward, to not only defeat Donald Trump but to build that more inclusive economy, that fairer economy, the one that works for working people.”
Podesta added that Clinton’s campaign expects Sanders “will be a good partner in trying to get that done.”
“We both want the same things,” he said. “We wanna see people succeed. We wanna see people lead better lives.”
One thought on “Bernie’s tough day”
Fuck Podesta. I want Bernie’s delegates to be as loud and demanding as possible through the convention and after. If there’s one thing that’s been readily seen in 21st Century politics it’s that the squeaky wheel gets the grease . . . and it’s time some of that grease came the way of working men and women of this country. That said (I seem to be saying that said a lot lately), any suggestion that Sander’s supporters are going to go over to Trump? Fuck that noise.
