Maybe about now would be the time for Hillary and the Democratic leadership to stop playing nice with Bernie.
Make sure we get plenty of video of Bernie bros and Trump supporters high-fiving each other at the debate.
I don't see how there can be any illusions left about Bernie eventually backing Hillary. It's time for Hillary to start going negative on Bernie.
I don't see how there can be any illusions left about Bernie intending to work with the Democratic Party. It should be plain by now that to him, this campaign has been about him and his ego. It should be plain that his modus operandi is get his way or make a mess. He used up his whole supply of respect with me a while ago. Surely I'm not that unusual. Surely quite a few besides me are increasingly reminded of the much-worse-than-useless Ralph Nader.
PS: As long as I'm here and since the post is sort of short: there are all sorts of headlines today about a new poll showing Bernie within 2 points of Hillary in California. Far more headlines than ones about the poll from the same time period showing her up by 18 percent. Or the averages of all recent polls which put her up by 10 percent or more. Gee, you don't think the media would rather pretend this is close than report the truth, do you?
PS: Gee, after Bernie took up Trump's offer to debate, Trump claimed it was a joke, then he said he'll do it if the debate can raise $10 million for charity; no, wait, he meant $10 to $15 million -- in short, it's not gonna happen, Trump's backing out. Still, Bernie was an asshole for accepting the challenge as if he were the Democratic nominee. HE'S NOT THE NOMINEE, HE'S NOT GOING TO BE THE NOMINEE. HE'S THE ENEMY.
