I hear what you are saying.
Candidates within the same party should not
undermine the other candidates or say
bad things about them, as the other
candidates may become THE candidate,
and backbiting only hurts ones party.
However, that said,
candidates do have an obligation to
point out the shortcomings in candidates
of the other party.
The American people
must know the shortcomings of candidates
before the election occurs.
The opposition party has the duty to dig
dirt, to out shortcomings, and make
the populace aware of what the other
party's candidate brings to the ballot.
So yes, Bernie should not say bad
things about Hillary or undermine her.
However, all of the Republican
candidates have an obligation to the
American people to point out the
shortcomings of both Bernie and Hillary.
And vice versa.
