Sorry Bernie-bots it looks like Sanders is finally admitting that he doesn't need your 27 dollar donations anymore.

I like how he admits up front that he will not be the nominee, and then goes on to kvetch about the process.

But then there is also this.
It sounds like Sanders might be wrapping this thing up before the convention.

If so there is going to be a veritable flood of Sanders supporter tears washing through the inter-tubes tomorrow.

    Bernie gave it his very best bucket-list shot with this run for Independent POTUS. 2016 was his last chance to do so and he did.

    I feel fairly certain that Jane encouraged this hard run because that is what some spouses do when it (something) is the last chance to 'grab the brass ring.' Bye Bernie.

    VOTE for Democrats in November, local county, state, and Hillary for POTUS. Please kick the dunder-headed obstructionist GOTP'ers (teapeople) out, way out!

      The FEC describes the permissible uses of campaign funds at the link below on pp.51-57 (pdf pp 61-67). Pp 117-121 (pdf pp 127 -131) describe winding down activity post-election. Pro Tip - and there's no doubt you already know this - candidates can't use campaign money for their retirement.

    Is that his concession speech ? It APPEARS I am not going to be the nominee?

    A little slow on the uptake, at least he doesn't have to worry about looking for those pesky tax returns.

    O/T Kaine rises to top of Clinton's veep list

    Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine is emerging as the leading candidate atop Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential short list, according to Democratic allies and operatives close to the campaign.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren and HUD Secretary Julian Castro are also top prospects for the Democratic ticket — both representing nods to important Democratic constituencies.

    But they have serious drawbacks that make them less appealing for Clinton than the Spanish-speaking, Terry McAuliffe-endorsed, former missionary and swing state governor, who was a finalist in Barack Obama’s vice presidential vetting process eight years ago.

    Kaine currently towers over other top-tier candidates still in consideration like New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, Labor Secretary Tom Perez, California Rep. Xavier Becerra and Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown......

    The Hill:

    Bernie Sanders’s awkward return to the Senate
    June 23, 2016

    ... But as the votes dragged on, Sanders didn’t gravitate to any of the friendly huddles of lawmakers. He got into an animated conversation with Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), two strong allies of Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee. The conversation didn’t seem especially jovial; Sanders still has not dropped out of the presidential race...

    In an interview with C-SPAN released Wednesday, Sanders said he wants to lead the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, which has jurisdiction over many of the health and educational issues he has raised during his campaign.

    “Bernie seems startled that people aren’t more deferential,” observed one Senate Democrat, who noted that Sanders was waiting for colleagues to come to him instead of going to them to initiate friendly chatter. “He thinks he’s bigger than just the Senate. He’s the head of a movement and his colleagues aren’t quite there.”

    The notion that the White House hopeful is holding himself higher than his colleagues is reinforced by his decision to keep his Secret Service detail, at the reported cost of $38,000 a day — a subject of some grumbling among colleagues.

    Sanders pulled up to the Capitol for a vote Wednesday morning in his motorcade, with police lights flashing and sirens wailing....

      Bernie and Jane have gotten huge heads in the primary and are nowhere near as important as they think they are.

      He never has had the majority of voters behind him.

      And, he's NOT a Democrat! They should have kicked his ass out of the party!

    That message has been less enthusiastically received in the Senate, where lawmakers often note that Sanders enjoys the full privileges of membership in the Democratic caucus even though he is technically an independent.
    This bastard has done a lot of damage to the Dems. He was running as a Dem out of convenience, he's not a Dem, will never be one.

    Bernie won't formally withdraw from the race, because doing so would mean the end of his Secret Service protection and he really enjoys the illusion that he is important.

    It is ironic Bernie Sanders campaigned on the injustice African-Americans experienced by law enforcement but he uses law enforcement to pull people over so he can speed down streets like he's going to a fire. Sanders is a public servant acting as if he is important.

    1. Anonymous7:55 AM

      Bernie Sanders was reluctant to campaign about police injustice to African-Americans. He at first dismissed the BLM saying that it was really a matter of income inequality. That may be so but too many African-Americans are brutalized or killed by police; that immediate issue Bernie Sanders was slow to take on.

    2. Anonymous9:19 AM

      Income inequality doesn't mean shit. My multimillionaire black BIL has been detained for walking while black in his exclusive neighborhood in a very progressive state. Though now the local police are well aware of when they get a call a new white person has moved on in because ( gasp) they get police calls about a very scary black person scoping out their new home. Of course that "scary black person" is just an older black man walking his dog in the evening down to the park like all the white dog walkers are doing. Over the yrs he has been slammed to the ground, detained in a police car while cuffed, had his dog taken by animal services while he sat in a police car, cuffed cuffed and frisked multiple times, been frisked separately many times....and it has had nothing to do with his income level, ever.

    3. Anonymous10:52 AM

      Income inequality does mean shit. It's just that it's not an explanation for RACISM, which also exists in massive amounts beyond income inequality. And if Bernie hasn't figured that out after all these years, he's the slowest progressive I've ever seen.

    1. Anonymous9:25 AM

      Actually I am a US army veteran from a military family. I am not white and I guess if you consider yourself old then I too am old.
      Bernie really can't run in this election as an indy and have any success. IN multiple states you cannot run under more than one party in one election. Maybe you should read up on elections and someday you may understand that not everyone thinks like you old white men. And, if you really think that Bernie would pull 44 percent of the Democratic vote you are either mentally limited or just naive.
      BTW This old woman runs a cattle and horse ranch on a daily basis, a property management firm, and I am enjoying a wonderful semi retirement after selling a commercial construction business where I am still on the payroll during the changeover. And, I for one, am tired of you Bernie bots and your misogynistic statements.
