It's Time For Bernie Sanders to Officially Concede Iowa

Accept it, Bernie.
In case you still haven't heard the big news:
Hillary Clinton narrowly won the Democratic caucuses in Iowa, outpacing a surprisingly strong challenge from Bernie Sanders to claim the first victory in the 2016 race for president. 
The former secretary of state, senator from New York and first lady edged past the Vermont senator in a race the Iowa Democratic Party called the closest in its caucus history.
The Iowa Democratic Party said Tuesday that it would not do any recount of the close results. Sanders spokesman Ted Devine said his campaign does not have "any plan or intention" to challenge the results, citing Sanders comments from Monday that the race appears to have ended in "a virtual tie."
To recap: The Iowa Democratic Party has finalized the results, no recount will occur, and several major news organizations have called it for Clinton.

However, as of now, there's still been no official concession from Senator Sanders after his narrow loss in Iowa. Even this morning on Today, the senator at first seemed to accept the loss before backpedaling and suggesting that he might contest the results. Huh?



Do you really think the news media would let Clinton get away with this sort of stuff had she barely lost? Hah!

With all due respect, Bernie...it's time to gracefully concede the Iowa caucuses to Hillary.

Because she won.

  1. I thought you didn't have an issue with having the Iowa Caucus results reviewed when Chuck asked you last night. It seems it is the media, including the Desmoines Register are the ones questioning the results. Bernie doesn't even bring it up unless questioned on it.

    1. This is my opinion, not Hillary's. We're not affiliated with the campaign. Sanders should either gracefully accept defeat or officially challenge the results. -Scan

    2. are you for real?
      please be respectful at least - of the people of IA & the Des Moines Register, Karma always catches with corruption, because karma has no deadline or endline. And please know that this applies to all - no exceptions allowed. http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/dem-primaries/268445-errors-found-in-iowa-democratic-caucus-results

  2. They have almost the same number of delegates. She has *two* more. It's basically a tie.

    1. If Bernie barely won Iowa, would you be saying the same thing?

      Yeah, of course it's close. But Hillary won. Is Bernie going to congratulate her on it or try for an official recount? Still wondering.

    3. Calling Hillary names, lobbing evidence-free shit about her, and PUMA talk will get your comment deleted on sight. Blog policy. This comment had all 3.

  3. If she is confident that the caucus results are right, then she should have no problem with an audit. This just further puts her integrity into question. Apparently she doesn't have integrity, so at this point it can't be impuned!

    1. Hillary won the caucuses, and the math makes that clear. See new post. However, if Bernie wants to officially challenge the results, he should do so. Instead, he's been fine with his supporters and some in the media being confused all week about coin flips and whatnot.

  6. just ask the Des Moines REgister and the people of Iowa, we the outsiders need to be respectful.. something is fishy there no matter how her supporters put it.. who is the DNC woman there ? mm.. no there is not one conflict of interest.. NONE just like she says for everything.

  7. .03 is hardly a victory. If she was humble I think we'd all have more respect for her, but the preemptive victory speech proved the kind of arrogance we're all just sick of.
