assume she gets elected, in which case I feel sorry for the American people who expected changes.

To get Bernie to endorse Hillary soon.

Yup, to beat the corrupt Democratic Party primary system, Bernie needed to beat Hilary by winning every state with something like 70% to her 30%, or she'd end up with more delegates.

The Democrat's system is corrupt, how was Bernie supposed to beat that?

What does he want?

In a word, influence. Mr. Sanders sees himself as not only a candidate but the leader of a political movement. To advance that movement, he wants to see his views reflected in the party’s official platform and at the convention. That could mean stronger platform language on the regulation of big banks, or a plank demanding free public college. Mr. Sanders is also seeking changes to the Democratic primary rules, including the abolition of superdelegates — though in the short term he wants their support — and the expansion of “open” primaries in which non-Democrats can vote for Democratic candidates. And he wants to boot two Clinton supporters, the former congressman Barney Frank and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy of Connecticut, from their convention committee chairmanships over past criticisms of him.

Like past runners-up, Mr. Sanders will want a prime-time speaking slot at the convention itself, as well as prominent speaking opportunities for some of his supporters. He may wish to have some of his aides installed on Mrs. Clinton’s campaign or on the Democratic National Committee. It is likely that he would want to be consulted on Mrs. Clinton’s choice for a running mate. (Chances are low that she would pick Mr. Sanders himself, but that is what negotiations are for.)

He may even seek a full roll-call vote, in which his hundreds of delegates would seek to nominate him from the floor in Mrs. Clinton’s place.

Mr. Sanders’s representatives have also signaled that they will seek to alter the party’s platform planks on Israel to better reflect the views of Democrats critical of the country’s government, a debate that could provoke a bitter fight within the party. A roll-call vote would show up Mrs. Clinton at a time when she would want to project strength.

A pretty good read, summation and/or answer to my question I think...

Sounds like really good political strategy.
Go to the white house, meet the president and tell him to F*** Off. Only a die-hard, right wing fringe anarchist would think of that. Of course they wouldn't actually do it, but they'd tell someone else to do it.
