I think Uncle Bernie is in my personal opinion (gotta state for the record this is just my personal opinion and is not based on any factual evidence lol) one of those uncles that everyone thinks is really awesome and nice then when you go live with him it turns out he's just a really grouchy old man who likes to drink a lot. Talks a good game, good around people and crowds occasionally but living with him 24/7 really sucks. Just my 2 cents. He's definitely not the worst candidate, that's for sure but I'm not sure he's even electable and I definitely don't buy into half of the stuff he wants me to buy into. He's got a good poker face though. To be fair: All politicians are liars and Bernie hardly has the monopoly on putting up a front. If he won tthe nomination I'd more than likely vote for him but if I had better choices I wouldn't.

Hillary should just have him be her VP and problem solved. Sorry but he doesn't have a chance of winning it now no matter what he says. Still it would be stupid for Hillary to ignore his popularity especially with the younger crowd.

Bernie is better than both Shillary and Drumpf.

Hillary and Bernie have voting records that are something like 93% identical last I checked. While I'd rather have Bernie than either of the alternatives, if Hillary wins I'm not going to be especially upset about it. What I will be upset about are these infantile sore losers in the Sanders campaign who refuse to accept defeat gracefully and vote for Hillary just for the sake of defeating Trump, who is pretty much Satan with better PR.

Oh man.

First, let me state that all the candidates who still stand a chance are complete garbage.

But Bernie Sanders is the worst. Yes, he has said that he wants to take ideas from the Scandinavian nations....yet if you actually see what the Scandinavian nations have done, you'll see that Bernie Sanders does not want that at all, what he was is an extreme, a large socialist movement. And, for the record, the Scandinavian nations are very much capitalist.

I have some Norwegian friends, and they even say that what he wants is NOT what they have over there. Note, Norway is currently the wealthiest of the Scandinavian nations.

I don't want Hillary or Trump for various reasons....but at least we will be able to salvage some of the things they mess up, after they leave office.

Well most of them don't know a shit about how the scandinavian work... and its funny too see everytime those political saying "we will be as good" while don't know anything really about it.

Even though there are some other issues with scandinvia.
Norway had it with its oil (even though they have a plan to secure future usage/money deals out of it)
But quite a lot of it is going/are quite empty and its not going to regenerate..
And how was nearly one of the poorest it was before, quite low with quite hard conditions good it changed.
Like potato's helped nearly everyone out in the EU and more around the world (the potato revolution! + getting industry around those times)
and it helped the poor people to get something to eat and be healthy, easy to maintain/plant and in numbers.

Atleast Norway hasn't been like Sweden to "lets help everyone!"..and rather tries to take what they can and do what they can.
There still need to be rules and maintain the situation under control.


Well again would say gamble with trump, bernie got no chance or we could vote for DeezNuts!

Not anymore... He's a sellout. "She had more superdelegates than me"... Well yeah that's what happens when you can ignore your citizens and support whoever you want.

Exact same feeling I felt with Bernie endorsing Clinton, wish I could give the same answer.

Bernie: We must join with her, my supporters. We must join with Clinton. It would be wise, my friends.

Bernie Supporters: Tell me, "friend", when did Bernie Sanders abandon reason for madness?

Politics AND Lord of the Rings, I love this!

Bernie Sanders has lost all of the respect I once had for him. I don't agree with his ideology, but his passion and determination were admirable. Guess he just wasn't feeling the Bern anymore

You really didn't expect him to endorse Clinton?

Thanks, I feel the same way. I never agreed with him 100% but I felt he was the best candidate to having a government that has a modicum of honesty and integrity, and no matter how many concessions Hillary gave him for his endorsement without those two principles it all just feels like lip service from her to be thrown away at the slightest inconvenience or sold to the highest bidder.

No I expected him to stick to his word

“We’re not a movement where I can snap my fingers and say to you or to anybody else what you should do, that you should all listen to me,”

“And if Secretary Clinton wins, it is incumbent upon her to tell millions of people who right now do not believe in establishment politics or establishment economics, who have serious misgivings about a candidate who has received millions of dollars from Wall Street and other special interests.”

“She has to go out to you.”

“We are going to stay in the campaign until the convention in July.”
