It’s not entirely clear what the demographic is that comprises this “Bernie Or Bust” crowd, but it’s been a bit of a black mark on an otherwise very upbeat and emotional Democratic National Convention. I’ve watched both the RNC and DNC closely, and while I found many things profoundly ridiculous with the RNC, there wasn’t anything quite like watching people openly sob when Bernie Sanders got up to the podium on Monday night in Philly and told his supporters to vote for Hillary.
To care this much about a candidate is noble and I respect it, but if I’m not mistaken hasn’t Bernie Sanders and the rest of the country known for a few weeks now that he wasn’t going to win? I don’t understand how the “Bernie Or Bust” folks can sit at the DNC and just decide they won’t vote for Hillary Clinton. In any case, Seth Myers has a very good take on all of this and it’s worth a watch.
The alternative to Clinton is what exactly? Electing Czar Trump? That doesn’t sound like a great idea, but what do I know, I’m just some asshole with a keyboard..
