At the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Hillary Clinton is officially nominated for president by Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski and seconded by Georgia

It's official. Hillary Clinton is the official nominee, but the big story for me is Bernie Sanders standing up and releasing all his delegates and asking them to vote for his opponent.

Whatever you think of Bernie Sanders, he is a classy guy.

Regardless of whether or you you feel he's spineless or classy, it's clear Sanders wants the Democratic Party unified behind Clinton, even if it just to make sure Trump never sets foot in the White House as President. That's what the Democrats need if they want to win.

It's spineless to bow out gracefully when you have lost?

Its spineless to rail against a system that you end up endorsing after taking millions of dollars from working class people.

He's hardly classy. He's a whipped sellout who hates the right wing more than he loves his values or "revolution." That's my take on him.

Hating the right wing is a cherished value.

Its funny to read the vitriol from right wingers here angry that the Dems are uniting to stop Trump from possibly raping the American people.

They're uniting behind someone that got away with breaking the law.

The wikileaks emails prove this was going a forgone conclusion.

Democrats have just proven themselves to be the party of the political elite, and their machinations, their occlusion, their thwarting of their own electorate because somehow they believe they know 'better'.

The party of corruption nominating one of their corrupt own, in what amounts to a coronation. The party that proven themselves to be racists and bigots in their DNC emails.

Now why am I not in the least surprised?

I wouldn't say Hillary "clinched" the election. It was less of a clinch and more of a butt pucker.

So much for principles. He complains about the way the DNC treated him, then endorses it. Guess what, theyll do it again. Good job Bernie.

That Sanders gave up his values and his common sense to support someone that probably cheated to win against him.

Nothing like being mistreated and then supporting those people that mistreated you. :lol:

You don't need to put probably in there. She did cheat. She cheated him as well as the American people.

But **** that noise. Not happening.

Cheater's aren't supposed to win. I don't vote for them that's for sure.

So long assholes, may your ship sink in shark infested water.
