Bernie Won't Go Away

Hillary Clinton has over 1200 delegates to the Democratic National Convention, and Bernie Sanders has 571.

With under half the delegates to elect a Democratic nominee, it still does not appear the field will winnow anytime soon with reports discussing his consistent appeal among progressive voters.

The question becomes: to what do we owe the lingering presence of the Sanders Campaign for President?

Is it the irony of the contrast in his message with Hillary Clinton's? Or perhaps it is his refreshing spin on the deference he has for politics to opt instead for policy discussions.

Whatever it is, it truly does not appear that Sanders will exit the stage in the forseeable future.
