    Hillary says Bernie ran a great campaign in her speech. In other words it's hey poodle time to go home.

    Yep, poor ol' Dr. Depends is all washed up. He managed to take ND and MT but only netted 8 delegates more than Hillary in ND, they tied in MT and he actually got spanked pretty hard in CA, a state that he was hoping to win and really needed if he wanted a whisper of a chance. He still vows to stick around all the way to Philly and who knows, Hillary could still get train wrecked on the way there.

    The AP really screwed screwed ole Bernie over calling the primary the day before the last primary. Bernie and Crooked Hillary were 2% apart in the polls and what she win by 20% ?
    The AP knew what they were doing.

    Looking at Poltico for the numbers in California.
    513 delegates up for grabs.
    The votes came in aprox 56% for Hillary but she garnered 63% of delegates.
    Bernie got 43% of votes but earned only 37% of delegates.

    I'm too lazy to do the research and don't want the aggravation but if this was typical then it is rigged

    Now people are coming out of the woodwork trying to get Bernie voters to love Hillary.
    But I think its up to Hillary to bring them on board by moving her campaign to the left.
    She needs to offer more than 'Are you with me?' emails

    The AP really stuck it to Bernie calling the primary the day before the Ca.and other states for Crooked Hillary. That really stinks they should be ashamed.

    I recall reading in my travels that in CA there are 3 delegate votes per district and whoever wins that district then gets those 3 delegates. Then at the end of the show whoever wins the primary based on the above receives an additional 10 delegates. So...if one of them won every district by 1 vote they could have 51% of the vote but score 100% of the delegates...hypothetically speaking of course. (If I recall correctly)

    I am not so sure about that. 1) There is more up for grabs than just the presidential primary, 2) Wouldn't one think that Hillary's voters could then stay home because she already won (if anyone was staying home).

    Yea but even Bernie said before the election if there was a big turn out he'd probably win if turn out was light he'd lose. Maybe it had something to do with early voting or momentum.

    The major media ignored Sanders from the beginning treating him like the crazy uncle they put on once a week.
    If you keep telling people that candidate is a waste of your time many will not vote for him thinking it's a vote thrown away.
    Until a few months ago TV didn't cover him very much.
    But he was good for Clinton in that she got some more attention, Had it not been for Sanders, Clinton would have been forgotten. The coverage of the Republican primaries earned most of the air time

    This party system we have is rigged.
    I think Washington was against the Party system wasn't he?

    Hillary is in a bind.Bernie is forcing her to stay Left to please his whacko following,while she would love to get the anti-Trump moderates by moving back to the center.She being an elitist,corporate,establishment liar,trying to court Bernie,s entitlement hounds is hilarious.Would love to know what promises she will have to concede to have Bernie support her.

    And how does Bernie support Crooked Hillary? She's everything he and his supports can't stand. He has to find a way to do it without alienating his supporters. That's going to be tricky.

    Ummmmm why would he need to worry about his supporters? Visitors for Sunday brunch at the home? Being blamed for their suicides? :idunno:

    Hillary might act and lie like she'll move far left for Bernie's supporters votes...but she won't actually go too far left.......Banks. are counting on her.
