Donald Trump
 When asked by Meet The Press’ Chuck Todd whether he would support a Democrat if it meant defeating Duke, Trump waffled, saying, “I guess, depending on who's the Democrat, but the answer would be yes.” -- Think Progress
IL delegate to the DNC Jesus "Chuy" Garcia 
Garcia told "Chicago Tonight" he believes the party will unify behind Clinton, despite the latest email leak showing how DNC bosses purportedly tried to undermined the Sanders campaign. He's called for national party chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to step down. -- Chicago Tonight
Former top Obama adviser
 “It came down to the fact that the president didn’t want the hassle of getting rid of Debbie. It’s been a huge problem for the Clintons, but the president just didn’t want the headache of Debbie bad-mouthing him… It was a huge pain in the ass.” -- Politico
 DNC Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall
  “It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist." -- Internal DNC email
R.T. Rybak, a former Minneapolis mayor and a DNC vice chairman
 “There is some deeply disturbing information in the emails, but they don’t need to distract from the convention if the DNC takes clear and immediate action. We should clearly state that any person from the DNC who worked to discredit another presidential candidate, especially on DNC time and equipment, should be fired immediately. No question.” -- Washington Post

  1. My husband & I were watching the town hall (& I thought it was in Michigan--?) during which the woman asked the question about religion (which Bernie answered perfectly--our Rabbi thought so, too), & I immediately said,"Plant! The woman was put there to ask that ? to make Bernie look bad." As per his usual, Bernie gave an honest and measured answer.
    And THIS is why Trump wound up refusing to debate Bernie. Some commenting in Diane Ravitch's Blog about what Trump would have taunted Bernie with--"Commie Bernie" (he's already called him that)... "Red Bernie" (that, too). We all know that Bernie probably would have smiled, shook his head, & launched into his speech about the "issues facing the American people."
    In other words (& why Bernie SHOULD have been the nominee), Bernie sticks to the issues, & nothing (& no one) could dissuade him.
    Looking forward to hearing his speech tonight.
