Seeing the writing on the wall, Bernie Sanders will lay off at least half of his campaign staff tomorrow.
This is not what a candidate does when they plan to contest a convention or be the eventual nominee.
For further evidence of Sanders planning an exit strategy, word has come down from Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta that he and Hillary Clinton are planning to meet “soon” to begin discussions on how to unify the party.
Sanders in unlikely to drop out tonight; and knowing him, it wouldn’t surprise me if he stayed in through the DC Primary, the final primary, next Tuesday.
But talk of a contested convention and fear of Sanders “burning it to the ground” seem to be overstated. For Democrats, that is the hope anyway.
