Gabe Feder; Stephen, thanks for including me in this bcc from move On - your efforts are appreciated! You may be heartened by the following email I received today from Team Bernie Media that is a message from Bernie. The crux of this is that he did what he did to maintain an ONGOING influence on the party. As to your article, I like the passion and the thought process in it, and though I personally do not think that there needs to be the VP move you state below for reasons I will continue to explain, the motivation is sound.

First, I think Bernie did something brilliant remaining a candidate and co-opting Hillary's followers to support him as a candidate should legal issues prevent her success as a candidate to convince Super delegates at the convention to switch.


July 13th, 2016:

Bernie endorsed Hillary yesterday, but he did not concede. Here's why that matters:

In a conference call with delegates last night, Bernie made it clear he still wants delegates to come with him to the Convention, for several reasons. For one, he wants them to participate in the roll call vote. Officially, that makes this a contested convention. And that's no small point. It may just be the main point highlighting where we're still at and why we are #StillSanders.

"We are still officially a campaign," he said during the call. "I'm not going to suspend..." While he acknowledged that Hillary appears to be in a better position to get the nomination, he then told them: "There will be a roll call vote and we need all of you there to get all the delegates counted." He emphasized that he wanted all 1,900 delegates on the books for Sanders.
