It’s Official: Bernie Endorses Hillary


At the moment, I don’t have anything on tap to say about this that I haven’t already said, but just for the record:

Democrats took a long-anticipated step toward unity Tuesday as Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton, praising the party platform and its presumptive nominee here in the state that gave him his most powerful primary victory.

“This campaign is about the needs of the American people and addressing the very serious crises that we face. And there is no doubt in my mind that, as we head into November, Hillary Clinton is far and away the best candidate to do that,” Sanders said to the cheers of hundreds of partisans crowded into a high school gymnasium here, Clinton nodding at his side.

The next step, obviously, is to see how enthusiastic Bernie is and whether he can bring along the vast majority of his former supporters. My guesses are “very” and “yes.”
