Remember that old Yogi Berra saying, “It ain’t over till it’s over?” Well, that appears to be Bernie Sanders’ mindset. Even after spending an hour in the presence of the
emperor president, Bernie ain’t ready to quit yet.
As Politico reports, The Vermont senator declared that he will stay in the race for the Democratic nomination until next Tuesday’s District of Columbia primary, and said he wants to see if the final vote count in California shows a tighter result. He also is planning to go forward with a big rally in DC on Thursday night.
And in another surprise, Sanders said he will be campaigning for District of Columbia statehood. “This is the last primary of the Democratic nominating process. The major point that I will be making at the citizens of the District of Columbia is that I am strongly in favor of D.C. statehood,” he said, noting that Vermont has roughly the same population as the nation’s capital but does not have the same representation. He also said he looked forward to the final count of votes in California, anticipating a closer result.
Sanders did affirm that he would do everything he could to defeat Donald Trump saying he would be “a disaster as president of the United States” and hinted that he will eventually be bowing out in order to support Hillary. “I look forward to meeting with her in the near future to see how we can work together to defeat Donald Trump and to create a government which represents all of us and not just the 1 percent,” Sanders concluded, before rushing away from reporters back into the White House.
So it isn’t over until the generously-proportioned woman sings — and we’re not talking about the one in the pantsuits.
