Independent Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential runner-up Bernie Sanders was all over the TV Friday morning talking up his political revolution and tinkering with his leverage over the Democratic Party and presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton, but he dropped a quiet bomb right in the middle of one of those appearances. On CNN’s New Day, anchor Chris Cuomo frankly asked Sanders what real difference it would make even if he got everything he wanted into the Democratic Party platform, and would it not be more effective to seek a position within a Hillary Clinton administration.
Cuomo: Shouldn’t you be pushing for your position in a Clinton administration, if that happens, than just the party platform?
Sanders: That’s what we’re doing too.
Cuomo: Your poker face is terrible.
Oh, so THAT'S why Bernie Sanders continues to string the Bernie-bots along.
He's using them as leverage to negotiate a deal with Hillary for a new job in case he loses his old one.
Gee, I wonder how he plans to manage a political revolution while working directly FOR Hillary Clinton?
