Lon Shapiro: I thought I had explain why not to rally behind Clinton, so let me have another shot.

You’re preaching to the choir, my friend.

Just to be clear, Sara wrote she likes Bernie significantly better, but doesn’t like his supporters.

I love Bernie and I asked you and all who feel the Bern to work our asses off to see him win the nomination. That doesn’t mean I want everyone to rally around Clinton during the primaries; it means I want everyone to rally around whomever is the Democratic nominee.

Trust me, Clinton supporters are not going to stand by the sidelines and see a Trump presidency, but you wrote a pretty strong post indicating that you won’t settle for anything less than your ideal candidate.

If Bernie can overtake Hillary in regular delegates, he will make a powerful case for the super delegates to switch over. But we’ll have to see how this plays out.

The main goal is to unite all of us fact-based rational human beings to prevent the catastrophe of a Trump or Cruz or Kasich White House. I hope you and all the Bernie or Busters will join me in that goal.
