I’m old enough to remember when it was clear — especially after NY’s primary in April 2016 — that Hillary Clinton had a plurality of pledged delegates, but Sanders still continued his race and his supporters believed superdelegates could change their mind at the convention

In 2008, Hillary conceded to Obama w/in 2 days after being mathematically eliminated, despite beating him in the popular vote. She then united her supporters behind Obama. bernie took 4 months to concede, sulked, pouted, & encouraged the “rigged” lie. Spare us the lecture bernie

She was gracious enough to reference his possible assassination just a few weeks before that concession. What a gal!

Only one campaign I’m aware of said they’d use superdelegates to overturn the will of pledged delegates.

Sanders tried to convince superdelegates to give him the nomination because he was was further ahead in general election polls. I can't imagine Sanders would take kindly to that kind of argument from Bloomberg or Biden at the convention.

He kept at it until Dems changed some platform elements also. I definitely remember.

I'm just going to say it. Bernie Sanders is the reason Trump is President and Hillary Clinton isn't. If you don't believe this, Trump will win in 2020.
