Nope. Its the older generation who vote for perpetual warfare in the Middle East but it is the younger generation who will have to fight and pay with their lives and their money as it is piled onto the debt. So it is easy for the older generation to support constant warmongering as they are less affected.

Besides, in this election, anyone under 45 is considered a child by big business media, as Bernie is beating Hillary among all voters under 45.

That's what I meant, and I think you know that. If Sanders chooses be a part of the Democrat party, and if he is eligible to run for president at all, then he reserves the right to run as a Democrat.

^Exactly.

No signs of Bernie dropping out, this does not fair well for Hillary, this may get ugly-ier.

So the Dems have a history of "trashy" candidates.

The lefty scum can reap the whirlwind.

In my lifetime the left has done nothing but sow the seeds of disrespect and hatred to anyone who believes differently, preaching the doctrine of "diversity" while rejecting diversity of thought--the only diversity that matters.

Now they have the nerve to act surprised when they come face to face with the monster they have created.

I sincerely hope the Bernie supporter burn the place down, and America takes a second look at the clowns on both sides of the Democrat party.

Bernie Sanders is a (D) Super Delegate. Bernie is a (D). They counted his vote for Senate leadership as a given. It's my biggest gripe with Sanders. I believe as far as politicians go he is about as honest as they come outside of the idea that he is not a (D).

Maybe they're upset for getting blamed for things they haven't done. More than once Soros, who funded the Ferguson protests, has been behind these disruptions but you don't see the liberal media reporting it - so they figure if they're going to get the blame - maybe do the crime -

Schism between the the stock market, big government parasitical liberals who are living comfortably off everyone else and the younger generation that knows the fix is in. I'm a progressive from the 60s and if Sanders is going to lead a revolt against the thugs who run the Pseudo-Democratic Party, then I'm all in. No way can this country stand four more years of wealth transfer to the top 1%. It's destroying our economy and our children's future.

Great, but we are talking specifically about the 2016 general election. One of the reasons Obama won so impressively is he was able to get out historic turnout among the youth and blacks of all ages, two groups that generally don't turnout in large numbers relative to their population size.

Hillary needs a similar turnout, but seems unlikely to get it at least among the youth. It seems unlikely they are all fired up for Bern, have to settle for her and will still turn out in large numbers. I also think it's unlikely she will get the same turnout among blacks.

It's a problem for Hillary and the dems and they know it.
