Bernie Sanders, whose calls for a political revolution energized millions of voters, bestowed his long-awaited endorsement on Hillary Clinton Tuesday, the Democratic former rivals embracing and praising each other before a cheering crowd of thousands.

I thank Bernie Sanders for all he did in the past and I'm sure he'll do more in the future. However on this point I highly disagree with him endorsing Hillary Clinton. He could say he was going to vote for her, his vote but not to endorse. This now even removes him from taking up Dr. Jill Stein's offer to join the Green Party, because he endorsed.

I wanted the fight to go right to the Convention and let the Superdelegates make the choice as to Bernie or Clinton. This fear of Trump is overblown, Bernie stepped out too soon, we don't even know if the RNC will make Donald Trump their Candidate there is lots of rebellion going on over there.

I had no intention of voting for anyone in the Democratic Party except for Bernie, is why I signed back on to vote for Bernie, of which tomorrow I shall remove myself off their rolls. This will be my quiet protest and I'm in hopes that someone will keep track of the week after and how many changed their Party affiliation.

So maybe some of Bernie's supporters will take his lead and join the Hillary Clinton camp but I'm going to Dr. Jill Stein of THE GREEN PARTY

I've shared the Green Party link over social media, and like you, supported Bernie Sanders.
Caving in to demands for Democratic unity, when that party is about as Democratic as a Corporate Donkey isn't the solution.

I'd sure like to see what ordinary Americans are faced with in the next year or three if Hillary Clinton beats Donald Trump at the elections, because I reckon a lot of you folks are going to end up as frustrated as the Bernie Sanders supporters will be.

..."As Sanders delivered the endorsement just two weeks shy of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia..."

Yes, this election cycle is unique, I wanted Bernie to take it to the floor and last gavel in Philadelphia. If he hadn't emerged victorious, THAN endorse and begin dismantling Slump - because there would still be plenty of time to do so. But obviously Bernie thought differently. I commented a few days ago on why I thought he did so. Who really knows? When a campaign does something unexpected or pivots quickly it usually has something to do with its *internal numbers/polls*.....maybe internals in the swing states showed Hillary's in real trouble so Bernie needed to jump in?? Maybe Bernie was gauging superdelegates but found not one would budge?? JL A mentioned, "the Clinton campaign forced the time to prevent him choose to support election fraud complaints when the data emerges for that decision." Than, there's the media taking little swipes at him for the last 36 days.......I would really like to know - why now?! I have speculations but no concrete answers.

**Pa is likely a swing state. Slump hasn't done or spent a damn thing here - nothing, nada, - except one ridiculous speech he mumbled months ago. Not one Slump sign anywhere, no ads, no bumper stickers, no ground crew knocking on doors....nothing. On the other hand, the Clinton machine has always been strong in Pa and it still is to this day, she has spent a lot of time and money here YET the last poll I've seen was Slump 40.5 -- Hillary 44.5

I know the election is in Nov so poll numbers might not mean much now but they have to be a little troubling...and those are the media numbers, maybe the campaign's internal machine numbers were worse?!? Bernie to the rescue - again.
