Robert Reich: Now, with Bernie Sanders essentially out of the race, Donald Trump wants Americans to believe he’s the remaining anti-establishment candidate. It’s smart politics but it’s a hoax.
John Peeler: An indictment would have ended her campaign, but this outcome threatens to put a big enough hole in her hull to sink her in the course of the campaign.
Dick Price: Sentiments were mixed, with 55 percent of you saying there would be no indictment and 45 percent saying there would. But a look at the many comments reveals several shades to that response, not just a black-or-white yes or no.
Rosemary Jenkins: Yet, I surprised myself when I listened to Hillary’s victory speech last week when I began to cry—not because Sanders would not be the candidate but because of the flashes of history that crossed my internal vision.
Robert Borosage: The hand-wringing and rumor-mongering are pure melodrama. Sanders has already made it clear – repeatedly – what he will do. The real question is not about what Bernie will do, but about what Clinton will do. Here’s what Bernie has told us he will do.
Peter Dreier: Sanders won the battle of ideas. The Democratic primary was fought on his issues. But he lost the nomination and now he has to figure out his next steps.
Unai Montes-Irueste: Women who provide care to seniors, or persons with special needs, or other people’s children, are her target demographic.
Jessie Daniels: This is the worst of all possible worlds, and the choice between Trump’s vulgar, overt racism and Clinton’s polite, public policy racism is no choice at all.
Robert Borosage: In a clear statement – largely distorted by the media – Bernie Sanders vowed to keep building the movement for change, designating the defeat of Donald Trump as the vital next step.
Arica L. Coleman, Ph.D.: We must, therefore, keep our emotions in check and allow the democratic process to take its full course. Clinton should understand this better than anyone.
Robert Borosage: Sanders will push to have the platform lay out a bold populist critique of our corrupted politics and our rigged economy.
Mel Gutov: In short, Hillary is an armchair warrior, to the right of Trump when it comes to international entanglements.
Robert Reich: Political analysts have underestimated Trump from the jump because they’ve been looking through the rear-view mirror of politics as it used to be. Trump Might Win
