It’s basically the endgame for Bernie Sanders. The millennial favored socialist has lacked the delegate count to Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination. While Hillary is prematurely celebrating her Tuesday night victory as the first female primary winner despite the criminal investigations under her belt, Sanders continues to preach he will fight on to D.C.’s primary next week. And even more so to the convention in July. The man is a fighter, no doubt.
However, despite his charisma to keep going, it is very unlikely Sanders’ name will be on the Democratic ticket for the November election. Now, in the woodworks of “political revolution” as Sanders admirers are calling it, Green Party candidate Jill Stein is calling for a “Plan B” option. While Sanders won’t have his name on the Democratic ticket, Stein will have her on the Green Party ticket, a third rate party that essentially has been tinkered to never win an election. Basically, Stein is calling for Bernie fans to vote Stein and the Green Party.
Stein, who was also the Green Party’s 2012 nominee, said she viewed Sanders as a “kindred revolutionary,” battling the political establishment. She called Clinton’s path to the nomination “a coronation” aided by the media and Democratic Party.
“We need not just someone who is born with a particular gender identity, but someone in the office who supports women,” Stein said, pointing out that she herself is a woman and a feminist running for president. She is pushing progressive positions, including eliminating student debt, cracking down on Wall Street and putting an end to military interventions overseas similar to Sanders.
If a Green Party candidate wins the White House, that would be the day Mark Cuban wins the presidency with rapper Kanye West as his running mate. Sanders and his constituents need to lay rest in their defeat, and maybe find the common ground to support Republican candidate Donald Trump instead in order to avoid the corrupt former Secretary of State winning the general election. Again, probably unlikely.
