Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is still technically running for president, as he has yet to formally suspend his campaign. In his speech last night, Sanders acknowledged that Hillary Clinton should be the next president, yet also said that he looks forward to his delegates voting for him in Tuesday's roll-call vote.
People were also making jokes about how Sanders is having a very tough time at letting his campaign go:
What if Bernie was just like "it is an honor to accept the nomination."— andrew kaczynski (@BuzzFeedAndrew) July 26, 2016
It would've been funny if Bernie had walked up to the podium & said, "I humbly accept the nomination of the Democratic party" #DemsInPhilly— Adam Osiason (@AdamOsiason) July 26, 2016
Thought Bernie was about to say "& I'm happy to accept the nomination for President of the United States" for a moment there. #DemsInPhilly— Nick Lewis (@NickLewis37) July 26, 2016
Hillary Clinton will be formally nominated this evening--and hopefully by then Sanders realizes that the dream is dead.
