I haven't heard that at all. Even Hillary says he needs time. I have confidence that he will do the right thing when he is ready. Some media may be trying to stir up trouble to help Trump but that is all. Hillary herself took some time to endorse Obama in 2008 but then she went all in. Sanders will do the same.

He literally just had press conference after meeting with Obama where most thought he was going to drop out and endorse Hillary....he did not and said he will continue to compete.

Perhaps but many thought this was his drop out speech.

Clinton's best move would probably chose him as her poison pill.

There's no way to know that at this time, we do know that he could have dropped out now and endorse, but he did not. We could speculate on what he and Hillary will talk about but at this moment he is still in the race and gave no inclination that he is going to drop out after DC.

then you believe that he will work with hillary to thwart tRump while still running against her
that would be illogical. and Bernie is quite a logical person

It's possible, not totally unlike what he is doing now.

Do you have a link? Isn't King Obama endorsing the future Queen?

LOL No most did not think that. He will make his endorsement when he is ready and he gets the recognition he deserves for his efforts. What is for sure is that he will never do anything that helps Trump win if that is what you are thinking. Trump is the great uniter of the Democratic party.

Lots of people thought that. I don't think he nor his supporters will be pleased with a simple "recognition for efforts". I don't think he will put any energy into helping Trump, not sure where i gave that inclination. She ain't the nominee yet, and he hasn't conceded defeat.

i don't think there has ever been someone so qualified to hold this office ~ Obama

Washington
Jefferson
Lincoln
both Roosevelts
Eisenhower

all less qualified than hillary to hold presidential power

i don't think so Obama

Go Bernie! What you don't realize is that we are all on the same side. That does not mean Bernie will be the nominee though, he lost the primary.

Well, it's not his party. He's an independent, like Ralph Nader. He is following in Nader's footsteps. It's sad to watch. He's let his ego get control of his better judgment. He's basking in the national limelight and loving it. He just can't let go, poor guy.

I hope he acknowledges reality soon, before he ruins his reputation, like Nader did.

From a certain perspective, he is factually correct. She has more governmental experience than any of those on your list, when they took office.
