There's No Reason for Sanders to Quit Now

It really makes no sense to expect Sanders to quit before the tallies from tomorrow’s elections are in.

Especially when there was no way Clinton was going to quit in 2008 until the last big primary day.

Responding to a question from the Sioux Falls Argus Leader editorial board about calls for her to drop out of the race, she said: “My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. You know I just, I don’t understand it,” she said, dismissing the idea of abandoning the race.

Trying to convince a Sanderista that they should stop supporting Sanders and support Clinton in 2016 is exactly like trying to convince a PUMA that they should stop supporting Clinton and support Obama in 2008.
