Even though he "suspended" his campaign, he is KEEPING ALL OF HIS DELEGATES AND CONTINUING TO GATHER NEW ONES UP TO THE CONVENTION.

So, it might not be over just yet. He's got to have something up his sleeve, or why wouldn't he give his delegates to Biden?

Elderberry, the reason is if he gets 1200 total delegates he has a say on the Democratic Platform Committee as per the new rules for the 2020 convention.

he is collecting delegates so that we can have a voice in the party’s direction and policies.

nothing sordid or secretive, just bernie fighting for us.

i for one will still vote for him in our upcoming state primary because i believe in his ideas.

“Bernie Sanders has ended his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, which is a tragedy, because he was right about virtually everything. He was right from the very beginning, when he advocated a total overhaul of the American health care system in the 1970s. He remains right now, as a pandemic stresses the meager resources of millions of citizens to their breaking point, and possibly to their death. He was right when he seemed to be the only alarmist in a political climate of complacency. He is right now that he’s the only politician unsurprised to see drug companies profiteering from a lethal plague with Congress’s help. In politics, as in life, being right isn’t necessarily rewarded. But at least there’s some dignity in it.“

Who knows, maybe the two non-consenting-touch leading candidates won't be able to help themselves and catch the virus. Then, I would hope, the runner up becomes the party candidate.

I know the Burning Man would agree, "It's better to burn out, then fade away." However the Bernie Man is a different animal. Don't set him on fire, and don't let him fade away. He's still on the ballot, giving us common folk a voice. I ha.te that word "FOLKS." How bout " PISSED-OFF-AMERICANS. " 😬

Hah! That's a good one...

But come on... it's politics... depressing... but the bad guy wins... and the blue team can't even nominate the right guy... people in the streets might actually be excited about Sanders... and people would be like, "Who voted for Trump?"

But when Biden loses... well, no shit...

a democratic party mandate to engage in electoral politics under threat of violent authoritarian rule is extortion. There are other options.

“ I’m hardly the first person to conclude that Bernie is the real victor in 2020, a triumph due as much to the global pandemic as it is to Bernie’s charisma, organizing ability, or political acumen. Nonetheless, timing counts for a lot in politics, and some key parts of Sanders’ message were perfectly aligned with this unexpected and unfortunate turn of events. His name won’t be on the ballot in November, but he’ll still be the biggest winner.”

"We are in the worst moment in American history maybe since the Civil War," Sanders said on MSNBC on Friday. "We are in a terrible, terrible moment.

"People are hurting in a way that we have never ever seen in our lifetimes," he continued. "And to top it all, we have someone so irresponsible, so not understanding the current reality as president of the United States that it is just incredibly painful."
