There’s no denying the surprisingly resounding beat-down of Bernie Sanders in the New York primary by Hillary Clinton! The Sanders’s camp projected a single-digit deficit in New York, not a 16-point deficit!
You can say this 2016 Democratic primary turned the “corner” on April 19th and thereby catapulting Hillary Clinton firmly into an insurmountable lead in delegates and an overwhelming momentum of “certainty” as the nominee at the July convention in Philadelphia. What’s more impressive was that the lead was pronounced at the very beginning of the vote tally last night and remained in the high double-digits until 99% of the vote was tallied.
Sanders can elect to stay in until the bitter end but the New York primary was assuredly the death knell of his presidential candidacy and he damn well knows it. Making it known that his campaign will fight tooth and tong for every last super-delegate just cements the clear notion that the Sanders campaign is in the final stages of “utter desperation”.
No matter. Next Tuesday, April 26th, the Pennsylvania primary will be held and if there is an even more friendly environs for Clinton than New York, it is Pennsylvania. We may see a 20-point blow-out win for Madam Secretary.
Bernie, I’d quit while I’m ahead. Work something out with the DNC as far as getting a speaking slot at the convention. Do the statesmanlike thing and suspend your campaign and do your part to reunite the party as soon possible to allow the Democrats to regroup sufficiently to permit Hillary Clinton to be at her optimum for the Fall election.
The decision is yours, to be sure, but, it might be high time to put party before any personal considerations, Bernie! Know “when to say when”. You’ve been licked and I’m sure you know it. The super-delegate ploy by your campaign manager, John Weaver, is just that, a mere ploy. Concede for the good of all concerned. Hillary can beat either GOP candidate, Trump or Cruz, handily in the FALL.
The clock is running down, Bernie!

I’d like to think we’re finally over the “hump”!
