Bernie Hypocrite Sanders. You betrayed us. There's no coming back from that. Enjoy your $600K vacation home while the people that supported you likely rent or barely own ONE house.

If you're waiting for a leader that is poor or from the middle class, you're going to be waiting until you're dead. As long as we have private financing of political campaigns there will not be poor or middle class people in politics, other than the occasional aberration.

I don't see anybody else blocking these shmoes.

He's like someone who went into a burning building where some 100 people are trapped saving them one by one, but he only saved like 50 and said, "that's it for me, I can't go no more I'll die", and the crowd that gathered says, "hypocrite you betrayed us, we gave you blankets and water and everything".

No, he should have declared that he's running as an Independent and everyone who was with him would have followed him along.

It was clear that the DNC was rigging the primary against him getting even a fair shot at the democratic nomination. It's almost certain that anything Bernie adds to the democratic platform will go away (and blamed on Republicans) once Hillary gets elected.

Bernie should have taken his support and run independently. The sheer number of people that would vote for him could have made a huge difference.

Remember, Abraham Lincoln ran independent and won.
