Clinton clinched the nomination more than a month ago. Is Bernie Sanders ever going to endorse her? | The Tylt
Despite a bitterly fought primary, Hillary Clinton formally endorsed Barack Obama for president four days after he secured the nomination in 2008. Now, it's been 32 days since Clinton clinched the Democratic nomination for president – and still no word from the runner-up, Bernie Sanders.
Will Bernie ever endorse Hillary?
Typically, once a candidate secures the presidential nomination, the other candidates of that party fall in line to support the nominee. And there are reports today that the Clinton/Sanders camps are now in talks for a formal endorsement. But Sanders month-long refusal has rankled congressional Democrats, who actually booed the Vermont senator this week for dodging questions as to when he's going to stop running and start endorsing. People want him to support Hillary so progressives can turn their focus to defeating Trump.
Bernie's supporters, however, say he is smart to withhold his endorsement; Sanders claims he "hasn't heard [Hillary] say the things [that] need to be said,' and his fans believe he should trade on the power of his endorsement to get more influence over the Democratic party platform, as well as reforming the nomination process itself. Others think Hillary is a warmongering, corporate candidate who's no different than a right-wing Republican, and that Sanders should simply refuse to endorse her — EVER.
Is it time for Sanders to endorse Clinton? Or will it NEVER be time?
