Sanders, Clinton to meet Tuesday
By Kyle Balluck - June 12, 2016, 09:33 - THE HILL


Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders said early Sunday that he plans to meet Hillary Clinton, the party’s presumptive nominee, late Tuesday.

The independent Vermont senator told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he will do everything he can to make sure presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is not elected president.”

“I will be meeting with Secretary Clinton on Tuesday evening, I believe,” he said. “And we will be chatting about her campaign.”

Sanders said he wants to get a sense of what kind of platform Clinton will be supporting and “whether she will be vigorous in standing up for working families and the middle class, moving aggressively in climate change, healthcare for all, making public colleges and universities tuition-free.”

“After we have that kind of discussion and after we can determine whether or not we are going to have a strong and progressive platform, I will be able to make other decisions.”

I wonder if Bernie will fold? After all their ideals are so similar. They have more in common than not, with the only exception being, that their intentions are like the difference between day and night.

If Bernie does a deal with the devil (Hillary) I think most of the followers will lean independent or go Republican. People are loyal, but only to a point.

Even he knows not to make deals with her

Sanders camp no longer lobbying superdelegates
By Harper Neidig - The Hill


Bernie Sanders's campaign manager said Thursday night that the campaign is not actively lobbying for the support of superdelegates.

"We are not currently lobbying superdelegates," Jeff Weaver said during an interview with Bloomberg Politics' ”With All Due Respect" that aired on MSNBC. "I don’t anticipate that’ll start anytime soon."

The admission may indicate that the Vermont senator intends to drop out of the Democratic race for president. Sanders is slated to give a live video address to his supporters at 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

Weaver, however, remained coy during the interview, refusing to reveal whether or when Sanders would drop out of the Democratic race for president, though he did maintain that his boss is a ”candidate for the Democratic nomination."

Sanders and presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton met at the Capital Hilton, just blocks from the White House, on Tuesday night to plot a way forward after the Democratic primary season came to a close with voting in Washington, D.C.

Clinton won that primary and will win the Democratic race. She finishes with an advantage of nearly 400 pledged delegates over Sanders.

The Sanders campaign released a statement late Tuesday night saying they had had “a positive discussion about how best to bring more people into the political process and about the dangerous threat that Donald Trump poses to our nation.”

Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs said there are still a variety of issues where they are “seeking common ground,” including raising the minimum wage, campaign finance reform, universal healthcare and more affordable college tuition.

Sanders has given no indication that he intends to drop out before the convention.

Briggs said earlier on Tuesday that Sanders will not drop out "today, or tomorrow, or the next day,” hinting that the live stream Thursday evening will not break news.

“He has said that he plans to stay in this through the Democratic convention,” Briggs said, according to Bloomberg News.
