Sanders is the typical socialist hypocrite. The very thing he's been preaching against for the past 12 months is the very thing he's now going to support? Hahahahahahahahaha!

This is not at all what he meant. Let's just ignore how that scene where he said 'yes' was obviously a cut away to another camera a few seconds behind while cutting the audio to that moment (meaning we lost a second or two of what he said prior to the yes). This is used all of the time in the MSM. I mean in the moment he could have been saying, "I can't say yes", and that would make all of the difference. The shot was from the back of his head...which is fishy when that's what they've wanted to hear for so long, and his voice suddenly jumped a step or two higher. But let's ignore that. Oh and every time after that he was asked to confirm the "yes" he refused to. But let's just ignore all of that.
What he was really saying was that if it came down to a contest between Trump and Killary, he'd vote Killary... Which is reasonable from his perspective. I personally still need to be convinced that Killary is actually the lesser of the two evils, though. If Sanders really intended to vote for Killary then he would have ended his campaign. He hasn't. He's smart. He's biding his time and playing the long game. She's playing checkers but he's playing chess. And sometimes you have to concede a pawn to take a king...or a Queen as it may be.

Yes, Bernie is more interested in seeing that the Reagan Revolution is finally turned around. The Reagan Revolution took Ronald Reagan as a figurehead and started the process nationally in the 1980s, but it was only by the Republican Party encouraging their base of organized church goers to takeover the country by running for every office starting at the local level (school board, city council, etc on up) that they remained a political force.

Bernie understands that electing him POTUS would not necessarily bring about a Bernie Revolution. He understands that the country must be taken back by a ground up revolution, by electing at the local and state level. It's a much longer process than day to day running of a country. He understands that social change comes from outside movements and that revolutionary govt change does not happen with one election.

Electing a POTUS is a moment, but a Bernie Revolution is a movement. He understands politics and governing; he knows that, despite what some may say, the two parties are not the same, that his movement would never find a home in the GOP, and that the only party capable of giving weight to and sustaining his movement is the Democratic Party.

Well i guess the convention won't be contested.

That's still a month away.

Bernie Sanders people that for months has campaigned against evil billionaire oligarchs.

Is 'now' voting for a candidate supported by them.

And people wonder why some of us didn't buy his CRAP.

It's funny to see that people are surprised by this. Bernie Sanders has been an establishment politician from the beginning.

Oh yeah, Bernie Sanders voting for Hillary Clinton is "reasonable from his perspective."

Get that mental gymnastics out of here.

He is just another establishment hack liar, just like the rest of them.

Considering Bernie's #1 campaign message over the past several months was that his #1 issue is that he's against a Trump presidency it is reasonable since that's the way to accomplish it. Remember, even though Bernie is very consistent he's still a politician.

Chump. I wonder what his response will be to the lawsuit being filed about the party colluding to cheat him out of the election:

Yeah , Sanders was always going to back Clinton. Sanders supporters will loyally falling line with Clinton when the time comes after the Dems hold their convention. Trump lost his only chance to throw political bombs when he declined to debate Sanders. If Trump had debated Sanders his aim would have been to further the Clinton - Sanders split.

I bet someone offered Bernie a big fat check to do this. It would not be out of character for him to take money for such a thing. Those who absolutely are fighting against Trump getting votes from his campaign leftovers. Namely the Clinton joke.

I know Bernie supporters are turning on him quick, not all but man. What no one realizes is that the DNC is going through a major shift in policies and platform and it's Bernie Sanders and his camp that are fast tracking it and it is real and very tangible. His influence is vast in the DNC right now and will be for the foreseeable future. Clinton's feet wil be held to the fire if she wins.

Yeah, exactly my point. Just another lying unprincipled politician that everyone bought into. I think it is funny and ironic. He is so anti-war anti-establishment anti-wallstreet and now he is going to support one of the biggest sellout establishment criminals in American history.


WAY TO GO BERNIE!!!!

Just another pawn for the establishment. He hoodwinked the youth of this country and now everyone is going to make excuses for him.

Bernie is a super delegate, being part of the selection plan he can't support or endorse any candidate other than nominees of the DNC.

So of course he has to say he'll vote Hillary IF she wins the primary, he doesn't want trump in the White House.

When "being a politician" comes ahead of everything you believe in, then that must be questioned.

Being principled means sticking to your guns. It means having the courage to do the RIGHT THING in the face of personal consequences. Being principled means sticking to what you believe in NO MATTER WHAT THE COST. A man of principle would take the consequences instead of buckling to political pressure. This shows that he is spineless, and does not truly stand for what he claims.

Bernie is not principled. He has taken you all for a ride and you all hopped on board and are not thinking clearly enough to get off.

And yet he still has not dropped out.

(He's always been a DNC-loyalist....and party-loyalty indicates lack of character and weak-ethics.)

Part of being principled means being pragmatic enough to accept that you're not getting all of what you want, and that certain actions will lead to getting some of what you want. Sanders simply believes he'll get more of what he wants with Hillary than with Donald which shouldn't be a surprise since Bernie was able to move Hillary to the left a bit during the primary process and commit to a few left wing campaign promises. If Trump wins he gets nothing, if Hillary wins he gets some of those promises enacted.

It's how the system works. A person who gets all of what they want is known as a dictator.
