Didn't they "unpledge" in '08 and switch from Hillary to Obama?

i.e. Your point is irrelevant.

I do hope there is huge turnout for Bernie in the remaining races. It will only go to show the hypocrisy of the elite attempting to force Hillary Clinton down the throats of an electorate which doesn't want her.
Trump supporters are hoping for that, and are hoping that the Sanders supporters riot in Philadelphia, because they want the Democratic Party to seem as divided as the Republican Party.

The only problem with your meme is that more Democrats have voted for Hillary Clinton. Which suggests quite the opposite to your narrative. The elite aren't attempting to force Hillary Clinton on anyone. She started the primary season as the frontrunner, and she's ending it as the frontrunner. Sanders' supporters are going to have to decide if their outrage that they were outnumbered by Clinton supporters is more important than the principles that Sanders stands for, and which they were supposedly rallying for.

You would like my point to be irrelevant. But since Hillary leads Sanders by EVERY measure, the fantasy your spinning is just fantasy. Irrelevant fantasy, at that.

Who isn't a liar in this whole thing? To call someone a liar in this arena is pretty inane, given that they all, including Trump, lie like crazy...

At this point in the race, I believe Hillary also led Obama by any measure.

Make that 525 for Clinton, 39 for Bernie:

It's a different race, dear. The primaries haven't occurred in the same order. At this point in this race, Sanders doesn't have any path to victory. He is simply working to build leverage at the convention.

Super Delegates in States Bernie won are freaking out. They know reelection is coming and if they don't vote for Bernie they won't win reelection.

It's official the Democratic Party is not the party of the people, it's a corrupt wasteland. Get rid of super delegates once and for all.

You set this standard, not me. Too late to change it now.

The point is the Super Delegates can change their vote at any time. They did it for Obama, they can do it now.
