Why Is Hillary attacking Bernie now?
DNC has the right to have its delegates ‘go into back rooms like they used to and smoke cigars and pick the candidate
For their part, the DNC ....have characterized the DNC charter’s promise of ‘impartiality and evenhandedness’ as a mere political promise—political rhetoric that is not enforceable in federal courts.
DNC attorneys argued that the DNC would be well within their rights to select their own candidate.
It’s argued that the “truth of the DNC’s deception” can be found in the Guccifer documents, pointing to one leaked DNC memo from 2015

Mrs. Clinton says of Mr. Sanders, “He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”
I will also bet that Trump would hire her to a Cabinet position if shes open to it. Why not.

At least Bernie authored a couple bills and had them approved. It was just to change the names of a couple post offices but still, more than she ever did but I do kinda get her point. Does anybody really care about the names of post offices. I always call it the post office. I would never call it say the Martin Luther King Post officer and would not even do a double take if it was called anything. It's just a post office. Nobody cares.
Here’s what the numbers say: During her eight years in the Senate, Hillary Clinton sponsored 10 bills that passed the chamber. The mean senator passes 1.4 bills a year, so Clinton’s 1.25 bills per year is approximately in line with the chamber average. By contrast, Bernie Sanders has been in the Senate nine years and has sponsored only one bill that passed.
Clinton successfully amended bills 67 times in her eight years in the Senate. Sanders did so 57 times in nine years. On a year-by-year basis, that comes to 8.4 per year for Clinton and 6.3 per year for Sanders. Moreover, the mean senator passed 7.4 amendments. Clinton’s is significantly higher than the mean, and Sanders’s is significantly below the mean. Put differently, Clinton passed 33 percent more amendments per year than did Sanders.
Sanders’s record during his 16 years in the House of Representatives was similar. There he didn’t pass a single bill. Granted, it’s harder for members to pass bills in the House than the Senate — the mean House member passes only 0.7 a year — but even so, one passed bill over a quarter-century in both houses of Congress is a very low number compared with his colleagues.

She's attacking him because she knows damn well there's not enough ree-ree feminists who vote by genitals alone to get her the party nomination, thus the gloves are off and she's playing sore loser early.
