Meryl Ann Butler, Managing Editor,

These are good points, Stephen! And you asked for my two cents, so here it is:

I and many others have not given up on the hope that something unexpected may happen before or during the DNC. There is still a possibility, admittedly remote, that a bizarre event could make Bernie the nominee. This election cycle has been full of surprises, and it would not be coherent to expect the surprises to stop now. In fact, I am personally not posting any articles that venture into the area of "what if Bernie does not get the nomination." I want him to get the nomination, so I am living my life and directing my intentions toward that reality. If that is not the reality that transpires, then I can recalibrate my course at that time.

Lyra Engel: With all that has been revealed about Candidate Clinton in the course of these rigged primaries, I am spending my time now listening to Jill Stein and gathering information about getting behind what appears to be the only truly sane and progressive candidate remaining. Bernie blew this one in my opinion.

Lisa Greil: I tend to agree that she would need Sanders as her running mate to get the votes needed to win (would seem the only logical choice), but what I fear is that the general election will be run just as the Democratic primary was (even if she really runs without him), with massive voter suppression and election fraud, and if needed the final outcome will be flipped in her favor if Trump gets ahead. She got to where she is by cheating and it would be naïve to think it won't happen in the general as well.

Michael Cohen: I can't bear the thought! I will be voting for Jill Stein and the Green Party. I will never vote for Clinton no matter what. Here's a piece I've sent out:

Leave it to Donald Trump to have one of the best tweets on Bernie's endorsement of Hillary:

"Bernie Sanders endorsing crooked Hillary Clinton is like Occupy Wall Street endorsing Goldman Sachs."

Also, political gossip columnist Linda Stasi in today's Daily News had a great piece as well. Highly recommended. I would never vote for murderer Hillary Clinton under any circumstances. I'll be voting for Jill Stein, Green Party, for President. Lots of disgruntled Bernie supporters joined the Green Party last night following Bernie's betrayal.
