“”While many people thought that Bernie conceded to HRCHillary ClintonHillary Clinton, he in fact did NOT. He did not release his delegates to Hillary Clinton. What he did do was force recording of ALL delegate votes, thus establishing both his totals and HRC’s. The significance of this is that if anything were to happen between now and November to force HRC to abandon her campaign, he would be the only one with the most (indeed the ONLY) Democratic delegates at such a point.
Furthermore, in critical contrast to what the convention Chair said, Bernie did NOT call for Hillary Clinton’s nomination to be called “by acclamation” (i.e. “unanimously”). What he said was, “Madam Chair, I move that the convention suspend the procedural rules. I move that all votes…all votes cast by delegates be reflected in the official record and I move that Hillary Clinton be selected as the nominee for the Democratic party of the United States.” After waving to the crowd, he and Jane turned around and walked out. (Notice that he did NOT even say the words “I nominate…”. ;).
It was the Chair who said, “Senator Sanders has moved in the spirit of unity to suspend the rules …to suspend the rules and nominate Hillary Clinton by acclamation as the presidential candidate of the Democratic party.” So even though she misrepresented what Bernie had just said, everybody agreed…essentially with BERNIE!”
“Sanders fudges acclamation line for Clinton nomination.”
Rachel Maddow points out that Senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders did not use the traditional “acclamation” line in the nomination of Hillary Clinton for president.
