What Bernie Sanders Needs To Do Upon Dropping Out Of Presidential Race
There is no more spinning of the numbers or hoping for miracles when it comes to those who wish Bernie Sanders to becomes the Democratic Party nominee. The college kids had a grand experience in politics, and that is a mighty important lesson in life. Progressives had their chance to promote their values and ideas and the result will mean a more vibrant set of ideas for the future.
But now it is time for reality to settle upon the shoulders of Bernie Sanders. Plainly put he needs to end his campaign that is now only serving the ends of the future Republican nominee. Bitter continuing attacks harms Democrats.
Upon leaving the presidential field Sanders needs to start the next phase of the election and that means working to persuade his supporters to come to the side of Hillary Clinton.
All one needs to know about how rivals operate after the fight ends for the nomination is look to see how Clinton acted in 2008 towards then candidate Barrack Obama.
The future Democratic nominee spoke to this matter this morning.
“When I withdrew in June of 2008, polls were showing that at least 40 percent of my supporters weren’t going to support President Obama,” Clinton said. But then she went on to say how she campaigned for her delegates to support Obama, going “from group to group, even as late as the convention.”
“I’m hoping that the same thing will happen this time,” she said.
And it should. It must.
The stakes, Bernie Sanders, are too high in this nation not to be professional.
