Why did Bernie even run?? Does it seem like Hillary was going to be handed the nomination no matter what?

Update:

Isn't Bernie a thousand-to-one a better candidate?

Update 2:

What are HRC's accomplishments?? Riding into power on her philandering husbands shirt tails? Failing to keep peace in the Middle East? Allowing Russia to expand? Sending American jobs Overseas? Blaming a video for her failure to protect our embassies? Making the rich richer and poor poorer through corporatism? Destabilizing not only the Middle East but much of the world? Allow China to defraud the world economically? Giving Iran a path to nuclear weapons?

Update 3:

If Bernie with his fresh anti-corporatism loses to a crony like Hillary, I'm voting for Trump!

    well, the DNC was in the bag for HiLiarY months before this all started. on the other hand, when Her Royal Clintoness is indicted for over 1,000 violations of the Espionage Act -- I think it's going to be very hard for her to continue or win the general election

    Bernie has been doing well and has gotten his Democratic Socialism message out there. The nomination isn't being handed to Hillary, she is getting more votes and winning more states.

    Hillary is winning the nomination because more people are voting for her - what exactly about that makes you so angry?

    And come on - someone who supports Sanders is suddenly going to change every value they hold and vote for Trump - pretty much Sanders' polar opposite? Who do you think you are kidding here.

    To get his ideas, which need to be heard, out there into the political discussion. It will take time, but more and more people are going to see that he's pointing in the right direction.

    What if the FBI actually do charge her, then Bernie becomes President.

    It is GREAT that he's running--he forced some actual substantial dialogue into the debates.

    He wanted to move the party even more to the left.

    The fix was always in for the "empty pants suit". LOL

    To put pressure on her from the left. It has already moved her messaging a little to the left and more representative of the middle of the Democratic party.
