Bernie Sanders on a C-SPAN interview yesterday stated that "It doesn't appear I am going to be the nominee." Soon after this the Sanders campaign annouced that Sanders will be holding a rally today (6/23). A key Sanders insider (before the C-SPAN interview) said that Sanders will not be dropping out...

He won't drop out for the reason he has already stated, to make the platform a more progressive platform. If he drops out, he loses his leverage to do that.

He is not succeeding at his goal currently. What makes him think he will?
He needs to go back to DC in the senate where he belongs.

He needs to go back to DC in the senate where he belongs.

1) Actually, he is because he already has a large number of delegates and a great number of progressives on the platform and rules committees.
2) He is there now, because the primaries are over and the senate is in session. He is not campaigning right now.
3) He really shouldn't retire, he's got 2 years left in his term and he is a high ranking member of the Budget committee and his influence in the Senate has only grown thanks to his run for president. I doubt he will run for a third term, but you never know.

He lost. Thus that statement is completely irrelevant. Lets just remember that Bernie became a democrat only one year ago, he has no right to demand this nonsense.

2) He is there now, because the primaries are over and the senate is in session. He is not campaigning right now.

I heard. He should stay there and concede . He also stated that there wasn't going to be alot of rallies and campaigning.

3) He really shouldn't retire, he's got 2 years left in his term and he is a high ranking member of the Budget committee and his influence in the Senate has only grown thanks to his run for president. I doubt he will run for a third term, but you never know.

I apologize for that comment. I wasn't aware he had two years left in his term.

He has leverage, whether you think he has a right to use it or not. He'll move the DNC left, take out DWS, and make it harder for Clinton to go to war during her Presidency.

I apologize for that comment. I wasn't aware he had two years left in his term.

1) While he did not win the majority of delegates, he still won a large number of delegates and he has said that right now his goal is to make the platform the most progressive platform it can be.
2) If he concedes he loses leverage over the platform and the rules. Also, there is the issue of the lawsuits concerning the legitimacy of several primaries (most notably New York and Illinois), and there is the possibility Clinton could be indicted for the Email thing (and yes that is a real possibility). I am not expecting either of those things to change the current situation greatly, but the possibility is still there.

Why?

Public service drives him. If he doesn't run for re-election, I see him vying to become Governor of Vermont - or seeking a Presidential administration role if Clinton wins this election.

He won't drop out for the reason he has already stated, to make the platform a more progressive platform. If he drops out, he loses his leverage to do that.

He is not succeeding at his goal currently. What makes him think he will?
He needs to go back to DC in the senate where he belongs.

1) Actually, he is because he already has a large number of delegates and a great number of progressives on the platform and rules committees.
2) He is there now, because the primaries are over and the senate is in session. He is not campaigning right now.
3) He really shouldn't retire, he's got 2 years left in his term and he is a high ranking member of the Budget committee and his influence in the Senate has only grown thanks to his run for president. I doubt he will run for a third term, but you never know.

I think he will.

Why?

Public service drives him. If he doesn't run for re-election, I see him vying to become Governor of Vermont - or seeking a Presidential administration role if Clinton wins this election.

My bad, I misunderstood what you meant. I thought you meant he will drop out.

It won't make a difference considering he's screwed and had no chance to become the Democratic nominee. None the less, he should run as an independent in the actual election.
