Bernie Sanders endorses Hillary Clinton. Finally! Update!

I hate to say I told you so, so I won't. (But I did.)

Update: Donald Trump marks the occasion, as only he can.
I guess perhaps he was hoping Sanders would endorse him?

Update 2: Courtesy of NPR: "Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process, and I congratulate her for that," Sanders said. "She will be the Democratic nominee for president and I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States. 

"I have come here today not to talk about the past but to focus on the future. That future will be shaped more by what happens on November 8 in voting booths across our nation than by any other event in the world. I have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton and why she must become our next president."

Sanders is still talking so I am sure there will be more to add later. 

Update 3: Oh hell Jill Stein is losing her shit right now!
More courtesy of Politico:

On the same day Bernie Sanders officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination and declared she will make an "outstanding president," presumptive Green Party nominee Jill Stein was having none of it. 

"If you don't want to vote for a war monger or racist billionaire, there are more options. The political revolution will keep going," Stein tweeted in the hour preceding Sanders' announcement alongside Clinton in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. 

In another tweet, Stein wrote, "While Trump praises dictators, Hillary takes their money. Remind us again of Saudi Arabia's human rights record?" 

Holy shit, she's a crazy person.

And here I thought the best part of the day would be watching the Bernie-bots crying into their bongs.

    5. "And here I thought the best part of the day would be watching the Bernie-bots crying into their bongs."

      Really, Gryph? There are many more of us (of all ages) who know that Hillary's platform will not include the following (more progressive than she had the courage to do a year ago):

      "Hillary Clinton released a debt free college plan that we developed together which now includes free tuition at public colleges and universities for working families. This was a major part of our campaign’s agenda and a proposal that, if enacted into law, would revolutionize higher education in this country.

      "Secretary Clinton has also publicly committed to massive investments in health care for communities across this country that will increase primary care, including mental health care, dental care, and low-cost prescription drug access for an additional 25 million people. Importantly, she has also endorsed the enactment of a so-called public option to allow everyone in this country to participate in a public insurance program. This idea was killed by the insurance industry during consideration of President Obama’s health care program.

      "...$15 an hour federal minimum wage, expand Social Security, abolish the death penalty, put a price on carbon, establish a path toward the legalization of marijuana, enact major criminal justice reforms, pass comprehensive immigration reform, end for-profit prisons and detention facilities, break up too-big-to-fail banks and create a 21st century Glass-Steagall Act, close loopholes that allow big companies to avoid taxes by stashing their cash in offshore tax havens and use that revenue to rebuild America, approve the most expansive agenda ever for protecting Native American rights and so much more."

      Gryph I totally understand why you included that last sentence about the best part of the being watching bernie bots cry into their bongs - you and others of us here have taken too much flak for supporting Hillary and have all been trolled to a sickening/angering degree. That said, we all have to unite around Hillary now and I am hopeful that Sanders can now wrangle his supporters and get them to vote Hillary in the fall. It may be wise for all of us to stop the vitriol and understand about 13 million people "lost" in their minds and try to help them see they can still win with Hillary.

    Finally! That will help substantially in beating Donald Trump.

    Every news channel I turned on this a.m. - moved around intentionally - was badmouthing Hillary Clinton even though they quoted a Republican as saying further investigations into her email bullshit will find nothing criminal. The media was covering Donald Trump and hyping the fact he is expected to announce his VP candidate within the hour. Total bullshit. The media - 1% - IS promoting Trump who will be like Hitler - a Nazi dictator! He'll quiet the media and is on record saying that! Fuck him....he would bring harm to Americans IF ever elected.

    Vote Hillary Clinton. She has the experience and knowledge to walk into the White House and do the job. Donald Trump DOES NOT.

    Turn Alaska blue, Alaskans! Vote out Lisa Murkowski and Donald Young too - Alaska's U.S. Congress members.

Term limits just guarantee that unelected bureaucrats in Washington don't have experienced representatives checking up on them. Term limits hand power to bureaucrats.

      “Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process, and I congratulate her for that,” Sanders said. “She will be the Democratic nominee for president and I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States.”


      "This campaign is not really about Hillary Clinton, or Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders, or any other candidate who sought the presidency. This campaign is about the needs of the American people and addressing the very serious crises that we face," Sanders said.

      He added: "And there is no doubt in my mind that, as we head into November, Hillary Clinton is far and away the best candidate to do that."

      With hugs and handshakes, Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton for president on Tuesday and emphatically told his supporters their "political revolution" must now turn to electing his Democratic former rival.

      During much of her remarks, Clinton embraced many of Sanders' causes, vowing to oppose trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership, fight to raise the federal minimum wage — adopting Sanders' tone, she called it a "starvation wage" — and overhaul the campaign finance system.

      "These aren't just my fights. These are Bernie's fights. These are America's fights," Clinton said.


      But go right ahead and keep bashing Bernie and his supporters. Hillary obviously doesn't need them to unite the party or to win.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, not only endorsed Hillary Clinton with full passion and vigor, he devastated Donald Trump and clearly laid out the stakes for the left in this election.

    Bernie Sanders thanked his supporters than discussed his political revolution. Sanders, rightly, talked about the historic accomplishments of his campaign. Sen. Sanders said, “Sec. Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process, and I congratulate her for that. She will be the Democratic nominee for president, and I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next President Of The United States.”

    Sanders said, “I have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton, and why she must become our next president.”

    Sen. Sanders added later that the campaign is about the needs of the American people and addressing the serious crisis that we face. Sanders added that there was no doubt in his mind to that Sec. Clinton is the best candidate to do that.

    Sanders contrasted Clinton and Trump:


    1. Anonymous9:33 AM

      Great summary. I thought he did a nice job. Time to unify and save the country from the Trump-nado

  8. Anonymous8:05 AM

    The news that Bernie Sanders will appear alongside Hillary Clinton at a campaign rally in New Hampshire on Tuesday shouldn’t surprise anyone, except perhaps the most deluded “Bernie or bust” types. For months now, the Vermont senator has been declaring that he will do everything he can to defeat Donald Trump in November’s election, which is clearly a coded way of saying that he will endorse the Democratic candidate when he feels that the time is right.

    But Sanders, despite his reputation as a left-wing purist (at least by American standards), is also a canny politician, and he never said that his recommendation would come cheap. To the fury of many Clinton supporters, he has been holding off on offering his endorsement for more than a month now, since the primary season effectively ended, on June 7th. These delaying tactics appear to have worked.

    In order to win over Sanders and his supporters, the Clinton campaign has made policy concessions in a number of areas, including education, the minimum wage, and the death penalty. It would be going too far to say that the runner-up in the primaries is dictating policy; on trade, fracking, and some other issues, the Clinton campaign appears to have stood firm and rejected demands by Sanders and his supporters. But the deal that Sanders and Clinton have struck will shift the Democratic Party further away from the centrist, New Democrat philosophy that Bill Clinton campaigned on in 1992, and closer to the social democratic, or “New Deal liberal,” approach that Sanders has long promoted.

    The most visible sign of this shift came last week...


    1. Anonymous8:26 AM

      Sorry, but the Democratic party platform was already against the death penalty, has always had education at the forefront, those are nothing new so let's not pretend they are. Also, the Democratic Party has always been pro-worker and pro-union, that is any workers quickest way to a living wage.

    2. Anonymous8:50 AM

      The party that gave us NAFTA (Bill Clinton) and supports TPP (Hillary) is hardly "pro-worker" or "pro-union".

      Bernie needs to retire! He's too old! We need tenures for those serving in the US Congress! He's aged horribly just through this run - compare photos!

    “In these stressful times for our country, this election must be about bringing our people together, not dividing us up,” Sanders said. “While Donald Trump is busy insulting Mexicans, Muslims, women, African Americans and veterans, Hillary Clinton understands that our diversity is one of our greatest strengths. Yes. We become stronger when black and white, Latino, Asian American, Native American – all of us – stand together. Yes. We become stronger when men and women, young and old, gay and straight, native born and immigrant fight to rid this country of all forms of bigotry.”

    Trump’s Twitter outburst was designed to try to split the Democratic Party. Trump knows so little about the Sanders movement that he thinks Bernie Sanders has fans. Sen. Sanders is a public servant, not a reality television star. Sanders doesn’t have fans. He has supporters who are standing with him in a political movement to take power away from people like Donald Trump, and give the government back to the people.

    Donald Trump was hoping that Bernie Sanders would help him win by attacking Hillary Clinton and fighting at the Democratic convention. Sen. Sanders was never going to give Trump an opening to win the election. Trump has mistaken the usual disgruntled far left that hates anyone who they deem not progressive enough for a viable bloc of voters who could power him to victory.

    Trump was upset because he thought that Sanders really wanted to hurt Hillary, to humiliate her or worse. He cannot understand competition and discourse. That's what his brain says.

    In addition, and sadly, as an authoritarian, Trump thought he could strong arm the republicans into being his fans.

    I hope everyone worldwide boycotts his products.

    Trump's comment is so embarrassing. Like, yeah, Bernie and his people would ever be for Drumpf. But Trump has this need to spin every single thing, no matter what it is. If son Barron said his favorite color was green but Trump wanted everyone to think it was red, he'd say, "Barron loves red. Loves red. He also likes green." He'd not be able to bring himself to honestly say what his son's favorite color was. He's completely incapable of accepting that other people don't agree with him on anything and everything.

    Clinton and Sanders unite for the war on Trump

    Clinton operatives have been quietly working to court Sanders supporters in battleground states.

    For weeks now, Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been engaged in a project to win over the staunchest — and loudest — of Bernie Sanders’ supporters in the places where they’ll matter most in November.

    Using one-on-one meetings, social gatherings and public campaign events, Clinton’s operatives have been quietly working to court his backers in battleground states Sanders won during the primary or where they fought in especially contentious contests — in some cases relying on personal appeals from staffers as senior as campaign manager Robby Mook.

    The first return on that investment comes Tuesday when Sanders joins Clinton on stage here for the formal display of unity the party’s been waiting for in advance of the July convention. In announcing the event Monday, both campaigns synchronized their press releases and shared similar language that the two former rivals will “discuss their commitment to building an America that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top.”

    Even with the specter of Donald Trump looming, however, in states like this one — where Sanders beat Clinton by 22 points five months ago — the unification effort hasn’t been easy.

    GOP operatives dread Trump convention

    ‘This ship can sink without me as a passenger,’ said one party strategist.

    This year — the year of Trump — it’s anything but a party.

    Many GOP regulars are skipping Cleveland entirely. (“I would rather attend the public hanging of a good friend,” says Will Ritter, an up-and-coming Republican digital strategist who worked on the three previous conventions.) And among those who are making the trek, there’s an overwhelming sense it won’t be fun at all. At a time when many Republicans are deeply dissatisfied with their nominee, pessimistic about their prospects for victory in the fall and alarmed about the direction of their party, there’s a reluctance about attending the convention more typically reserved for going to the DMV, being summoned for jury duty or undergoing a root canal.

    “This is the first year in the past two decades that Republicans aren’t excited about attending the convention. Normally, we’re all jazzed up about getting together and celebrating our nominee,” said Chris Perkins, a GOP pollster who has attended every Republican convention since 1996. “There’s nothing to celebrate this cycle. I’m going because I have to, not because I want to.”

    Hillary Clinton And Bernie Sanders Terrify The Koch Brothers With A Single Sentence

    If the sight of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton standing together wasn't enough to scare the right-wing billionaires, Hillary Clinton's vow to force all candidates to disclose,their donors should terrify the Koch brothers.


  35. Anonymous9:30 AM

    Following Sanders' speech, Clinton praised the senator extensively, borrowing the senator's campaign slogan.

    "Thank you for your lifetime of fighting injustice. I'm proud to be fighting beside you," Clinton said.

    "With your help, we are joining forces to defeat Donald Trump, win in November, and yes, building a future we can all believe in."

    1. Anonymous11:23 AM

      So, both Clinton and Bernie are more gracious and forgiving than her supporters.

  36. Anonymous10:08 AM

    Finally, and most significantly, Sanders signaled that he would not contest the Democratic platform in Philadelphia. The initial goal of Sanders's candidacy was to move the Democratic Party in his ideological direction. On Tuesday, the senator declared victory on that score.


    1. Anonymous11:26 AM

      That's what it's been from the beginning. He never thought he'd win the nomination. No one was more surprised than Sanders that he did so well. And being a seasoned politician, he used that success to push for as many of his goals as possible, as anyone else would do in his place. And now that he has achieved as much as he could, he has turned his attention to defeating Donald Trump.

      But he'll still be crucified for daring to hold Hillary's feet to the fire.

      She's a better candidate because of him, but none of her supporters will thank him for it.

    Trump Comes Unglued And Calls Bernie Sanders An Oligarch After Clinton Endorsement

    In a nonsensical rant, Donald Trump is claiming that Sen. Bernie Sanders is now a member of the oligarchy, which is why Sanders supporters should vote for Trump.

    Donald Trump, obviously, didn’t watch Hillary Clinton’s speech. If he did, he would know that Clinton specifically spoke out against TPP, but in our current world where Trump lies about everything all of the time, this is a relatively minor point.

    In larger terms, Trump is so delusional that he believes that Bernie Sanders supporters are going to vote for him. This belief appears to be based on something that Trump saw on television. Fox News told Donald Trump that Sanders supporters are angry. Trump knows that all of his supporters are angry, therefore, in his own mind, all of the angry people will come together and ragefully vote for Donald Trump.

    What is being left out of Trump’s little thought bubble is that the Sanders supporters are angry at rich guys who exploit the system like Donald Trump. Bernie Sanders supporters are never going to vote for Trump.

    The idea that Trump would imply that Sen. Sanders is an oligarch would be laughable if it weren’t so insulting.

    There is only one oligarch running in the 2016 presidential election, and his name is Donald J. Trump.


    1. Anonymous10:43 AM

      Trump accuses everyone he perceives as a possible threat of everything that he embodies. He is the king of projection. He's a psychopath. He knows his base is cretinous. He's banking on the entire country being populated by imbeciles.

    FLASHBACK: Unhinged Hillary supporters vowed to elect McCain in 2008 — and fell on their faces

    Every time one candidate loses in a Democratic primary, most of their supporters eventually get over their grief and decide to support their victorious rivals in the name of party unity.

    That said, there is always a very loud and tiny minority of supporters who just cannot let go, no matter how many times their favored candidates tell them to do so.

    We’ve seen it with the “Bernie or bust” crowd this year, and we saw it eight years ago with Hillary Clinton supporters who swore that they would not vote for Barack Obama and would instead work to elect John McCain instead.

    For your enjoyment and/or horror, we’ve put together a compilation of Hillary supporters who refused to rally behind Obama in 2008 and often trashed him in ways you’d expect to hear from a Rush Limbaugh caller.

    I’m a strong Sanders supporter, and I’m going to vote for Clinton. For me, it’s not a terribly difficult decision. Weighing all the factors, I think we’ll be just fine. Whatever else happens, we’ll have up to three shiny new SCOTUS justices ready to overturn all the nonsense rulings like Citizens United. And we won’t have policies built on fear, division, racism and certainly not sexism. I won’t agree with everything, and I suspect I’ll be spitting mad from time to time. I’m going in with my eyes wide open.

    But I won’t be doing it because “if I don’t, it’s a vote for Trump.” Don’t let them tell you that — it’s a crappy justification for a vote you can’t make in good conscience, and it’s frankly bullying. Instead, all I ask is that you keep an open mind and let Clinton try to earn your vote. She owes that to you, and you owe that to her. Your vote is valuable. It’s important. And it’s not for sale.

    Hillary Clinton is crushing Donald Trump among college-educated white voters, a group Mitt Romney easily won in 2012 and one his Republican Party has carried in presidential contests for decades.

    White voters with at least a college degree—a group that represented more than a third of the 2012 electorate—back Clinton over Trump 48 percent to 37 percent, the latest Purple Slice online poll for Bloomberg Politics shows. Romney won that group by 14 percentage points, according to exit polls.

    Among all college-educated likely voters, including those with post-graduate degrees, Clinton leads 54 percent to 32 percent, a much bigger margin than President Barack Obama’s 2-point advantage with a group that represented 47 percent of the electorate in 2012. Among voters with just a college degree and no post-graduate degree, another subgroup Romney won in 2012, Clinton is ahead 48 percent to 37 percent.

    The Bernie folks interviewed on television seemed stunned by the news, and some even stomped their feet and said they'd NEVER vote for Hillary.
    You got three choices, don't vote, vote for Donald or vote for someone your candidate endorsed graciously and vowed to help defeat Trump. I doubt Bernie would want "his people" to vote for trump or throw away their vote.

    Unfortunately the events in New Hampshire were eclipsed by the Dallas Memorial Service and, above all, by President Obama's powerful and very accurate remarks. Once again, I felt so proud to have had the opportunity to vote twice for President Obama.

    Of course this morning's New York Times ignores both the president's address, its substance and significance, and the New Hampshire event in favor of the usual Trump headline and a headline about the bold GOP platform. We live in such a tone-deaf media environment.

    At this point, Trump seems to own the New York Times probably out of their fear that to treat him other than adoringly would mean that the paper would be out of the Trump media loop. And that reminds me all too much of how the New York Times wallowed in the Bush administration lies leading up to the invasion of Iraq, lest a New York Times reporter be left out of the invasion coverage loop. Meantime, Hillary Clinton has made at least two major addresses in the past week - both ignored by the media - and has made peace with her primary adversary. But, when Trump tweets, all the world jumps to attention.
