Sanders Going Through to California

That’s a change. Notice that he’s not vowing to go through to the convention anymore.

“We’re not giving this thing up,” the self-described democratic socialist said. “We’re going all the way to California. But if she is the nominee, I would hope that she puts together the strongest progressive agenda that says, ‘Yes, we’re going to stand with the working families in this country. We are prepared to take on the fossil fuel industry and the drug companies Wall Street and the billionaire class.’ And if she has a candidate for vice president who is prepared to carry that mantle, prepared to engage in that fight, I think that would be a very good thing for her campaign.”

On NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Sanders focused on the present.

“We are in this race. We are not writing our obituary. We’re in this race to California,” he said, before letting a tense change slip. “And we’re proud of the campaign we ran.”

    The dishonest socialist beating the honest socialist.

    I liked Bernie for his honesty even though he was always nearly wrong.

    “he was always nearly wrong”. There is an English teach somewhere trying to diagram that phrase.

    So if we preach “knowing right from wrong”, with no way to tell the gradations, you are saying Bernie is right?

    As opposed to being always wrong like kev, eh?

    Inverted the words. Should read “nearly always wrong .” Glad you are policing that. Caught me on the proof reading felony.

    Just making the point that Bernie is honest about who he is and what he stands for.

    That is more respectable than either Trump or Hillary .

    I just want to know if there was some hidden meaning, since for the hardened absolutists there are no subtle gradations between right and wrong. So “nearly” would be problematic regardless of the order of words.
