“Dag Bern it,” Bernie is still in the race!

After feeling confident that he would overcome a 48 percentage point deficit in the New York Primary (he was only able to shave 33 points from that lead), nevertheless, Sanders presses on in his race for the White House.

The media has written him off, but the dogged Vermont Independent, vows he can wrestle the Democratic nomination from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

In New York, Sanders and Clinton traded punches reminiscent of the epic battle in Madison Square Garden between Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali. In that bout, Joe Frazier landed a blow that put Ali on the seat of his pants. It was the first time in his career that Ali would be on the canvass looking up at his opponent. Many attending the fight  that night said it was sheer will that enabled Ali to get up from what should have been a knockout punch. Although he lost, he finished the fight.

Ali would later vindicate himself in a brawling thriller in Manila, Philippians. Like Ali, Sanders did not spend much time on the deck. He is on a roll and as quietly as it is being kept by ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and FOX News, Sanders is working with the “Big Mo,” as in momentum. The Bern is poised to win, “Dag Bern it,” 19 of the last 25 primaries.

Out west, far from the lens of mainstream news sources, the Bern has been drawing 2008 Obama like crowds. With each passing day, Clinton, feeling the Bern, intimates that Sanders should, “Dag Bern it,” drop out of the race like she did in 2008.

What Clinton fails to mention is that she did not concede the 2008 race to then Senator Barack Obama until after the June 7, 2008 California Primary. Nor does she want her African American supporters to recall that she strongly suggested, she was staying in the race until California because strange things had happen in the California Primary. She was alluding to the assassination of Bobby Kennedy in 1968 moments after he had won the state’s Primary.

It is a good thing for Democrats that “Dag Bern it,” Bernie is still in the race because this week, Republicans, sensing that Clinton is a beatable candidate, circled the wagons in the District of Columbia in an effort to unify the party around Donald J. Trump.

Finally, Republican leaders have come to the realization that the Democrats are on the brink of nominating a flawed candidate. Secretary Clinton has the largest mistrust factor among voters than any Democrat in history and not to mention the quiet, yet thorough ongoing FBI investigation into the private email server she used to conduct State Department business from her basement.

Sometime between now and the Democratic convention in Philadelphia, Democratic politicos must come to the realization that the crazy, wacky Bern beats Trump in the major national polls by double digit percentage points, while Clinton’s slight lead over Trump is within the poll’s margin of error.

This salient fact should give any Democrat whose head is not stuck in the sand a cause to pause and figure out a way to put forth their best candidate in a one-on-one face off with Trump. Perhaps history has passed on Clinton breaking that glass ceiling once again.

“Dag Bern it,” Bernie is still in the race, and in a few weeks, Democrats will be glad that he is!
