Hillary Clinton said the five most powerful words in the Democratic presidential race — “I will be the nominee.”
Clinton also sent a tough message to Sanders: enough is enough. She made the comments during an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday, saying she rallied behind then-candidate Barack Obama when the numbers were against her. Party unity was her goal and her actions embodied that sentiment.
Bernie Sanders fails to recognize the reality that he cannot win the Democratic presidential nomination because he trails in pledged delegates by over 270 and also trails in the popular vote by 3 million. There aren’t enough states left for him to overtake her. In fact, he hasn’t won a delegate-rich state in this primary cycle. He just keeps moving the goalpost. Well, he how now moved it off the field and into the bleachers. Still, no path to victory in sight, barring a catastrophe. That’s kinda what his surrogate Susan Sarandon is wishing for to crown a Socialist the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee.
During the interview with Cuomo, it was clear Hillary Clinton had enough of the attacks lobbed against her by Bernie Sanders.
Hillary Clinton to CNN: “I went all the way to the end against then-Senator Obama. I won nine out of the last 12 contests back in ’08. I won Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia. So I know the intense feelings that arise, particularly among your supporters as you go toward the end. But we both were following the same rules just as both Senator Sanders and I are following the same rules, and I’m 3 million votes ahead of him and I have an insurmountable lead in pledge delegates and I’m confident that just as I did with Senator Obama, where I said, you know what? It was really close. Much closer. Much closer than it is between me and Senator Sanders right now.”
Sanders needed to beat Clinton in New York, Florida or Pennsylvania. He didn’t. He lost by a huge margin. He needs to stop whining like a 3 year old who wants candy for dinner. Threatening the party if they don’t toe the line in his view is going to help one person — Donald Trump. The scorched-earth strategy Sanders is undertaking is going to backfire on him. He has to realize, second place doesn’t equal being the presumptive nominee. It’s now Hillary Clinton’s party and he needs to do his part to help create party unity. The goal is to defeat Donald Trump, not tear down Clinton. Whining like a little bitch isn’t the adult thing to do. You lost Bernie. Now, figure out a way how you and Jane will deal with the mess she created at Burlington College because the feds may come a-knocking.
