    Where's Bernie?

    Wasn't he supposed to be campaigning with Hillary Clinton? He seems to have gone to ground.

    I'd like to think that Bernie (and his wife) are just taking a well-deserved vacation. That's what I'd LIKE to think.

    I seriously wonder if he, in conjunction with the DNC have decided that given the virulent passion of his supporters, it might do Hillary more good for him to stay under the radar than to overtly support Hillary, make himself visible and therefore stir the flames of discontent among his supporters.

    But,just like the rest of us,you do not!

    Bernie lied about remaining a Democrat just to run. When that failed he reverted to Independant, bought himself a $600,000 Vacation home and left his supporters holding the bag.

    Bernie never revealed his taxes either. Wonder how much of those small donations went to buy his house?

    Bernie knows that he does not want a "sudden heart attack and/or stroke".

    He is buying beach houses and chilling.

    Many of his supporters do not buy that story.

    Mathematically, that would be a smart decision. The contrast between him and Hillary could risk alienating more support than his appearance would bring in.

    And right now, with her comfortably ahead in the polls and no reason to think this status will reverse itself, why rock the boat?

    I agree.

    He doesn't want to get Sean Lucas'd.

    Trouble is, without him being visible to at least an extent, there's going to be nothing much to stop Hillary easing back into her own centrist comfort zone and gradually walking back all the promises she made to the Bernie supporters at the convention. If Trump carries on sabotaging his own campaign, she's not going to need the Bernie supporters as much as she might have. And without Bernie there to keep her honest about those promises, we could end up seeing his entire campaign being a complete waste of time.

    Elizabeth Warren seems to be notable by her absence too.
