Once again the democratic party exerts it’s heavy hand of control on it’s voters . Allowing them NO say !
We all knew the fix was in for corrupt Hillary and the Clinton machine . Money and power allows the most corrupt to gain control in Washington's closely guarded group . Hillary has Wall Street , big banks , Lobbyist and the super-rich liberal elites to watch out for and make very happy . How many more lies and scandals are they keeping secret ?

Pretty sure everyone but the Democrats themselves already knew that.

sounds like he cares about his country, and the degrading of our values, when a woman that 70% of all Americans say they don't trust can somehow be an entire party's hero. It's pathetic to watch.

My question is, why is Sanders backing down? I thought of him as a man of principles and integrity and find myself very disappointed. Has he been "handled" in some way? What is going on? Is our system so corrupt now that we expect nothing less?

I don't know why he's backing down. I'd really like him to just put his middle finger up and say "**** the establishment!", but he's not.

At the end of the day, Sanders is a politician, his principles and integrity be damned, if he can stay in the big league.
The guys on the radio I listen to on my drive to work, say they the politicians like being members
of the free bacon wrapped shrimp club!

I am guessing that he realizes that if he pulls his support from Clinton, he may very well hand the election to Trump. So like everyone else, he is being forced to take the lesser of two bad options.

**** the establishment that has paid his salary and benefits for most of his life? Not likely.

If he had done that, it would be likely that he and his supporters would cede their influence in the Democratic Party. That would have been entirely counterproductive for his [and their] cause.

Last night Paul Begala (who had long been with Zell Miller, the 1992 Clinton campaign, and a member of the anti-Iraq War left) said it beautifully last night: "do you want a monument or do you want a movement?"

What you saw last night was a radical politician act with some semblance of maturity, coaxing crying and overly dramatic 20-somethings into the political process.

He did those young people a service, even if they don't know it yet.

I must say it is amusing to see such sophistry from a poster named after a philosopher who denounced such methodologies.
