The DNC rules offer two options if Hillary drops out of the race!You can view the full DNC rules book below this article! First is if Hillary drops out the second candidate with the highest number of delegates gets the nomination, in this case, Bernie Sanders(which is a rule that was in charge since 1968 DNC convention in Chicago,Illinois)! And the second is that The democratic national committee has the full authority to name a replacement for Hillary should she stop running for president for some reason! Fortunately for Sanders supporters,the DNC rules are suspended. The bylaws are not suspended, the bylaws give the right to the next candidate with the required delegates to be the presidential nominee. Bernie suspended the rules and did not nominate her by acclamation.

Even with your personal issue with the man, you surely accept that he's a damn sight closer to the mark than any other candidate who has appeared since the beginning of the elections. You also accept, I presume, that his voting record, which is pretty much the only legitimate marker any politician can put down, is unassailably in line with his stated position on the issues.
