WASHINGTON – Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has been hospitalized. His campaign said in a statement Wednesday that the U.S. Senator from Vermont experienced chest pains during an event Tuesday evening and testing found he had a blockage in one artery.

With Biden out, it's now a two person race. (Sanders / Warren) Bernie should stay, but trim back his schedule.
Ruth Ginsburg didn't quit. She's much worse off.
BTW...Misleading Title for this thread. Bernie is not "out of the race". Not yet.

If he does quit I wonder if he will be giving the millions of dollars in campaign donations back to his base. I am pretty sure we all know the answer to that question.

Stick a stint in him. He will be back on the campaign trail in no time.
Yup, they'll have him back on his feet in days, probably feeling better than he has in years(get that blockage cleared).
That privatized medical system....

I guarantee you he'll be back. Unfortunately this pretty much ends any chance he has at the presidency.
He was already fighting an uphill battle due to his age. Now that he has serious health issues showing up it's going to put most people off.
I have to give him kudos though. He's definitely been working a harder schedule than any of the other candidates while avoiding the gaffes of his opponents. The debates between him and Trump would've been amazing.
I'll still vote for him in the Primary, but I think Warren has pretty much clinched the nomination at this point.

Hopefully it is just stints and back at it in a couple days.
Doing a bypass or even a transplant would be a career ender at his age as a full enough recovery would take years.
