The Associated Press officially reported something everyone has known for quite some time last night. Hillary Clinton has secured the 2,383 Democratic delegates to be the parties nominee for President. Publicly stating so before California and the rest of the states voted may not have been the best thing to do, but it still doesn't take away from the monumental fact that she will be the first female candidate for President of a major party in American history.
The Democratic Party has now chosen an African American and a woman to be the leader of this country. I would hope that would make even the most ardent Bernie supporter to take a second and smile at how far we have come as a nation.
I hope Bernie has begun the process of figuring out a way to change his tune and accept his fate. He gave it a great shot and went further than many people expected him to, but the people have spoken and they decided to go another way.

I think he'll be an asset once all the dust settles. He seemed conciliatory after his meeting with President Obama and vowed to do everything he could to prevent Trump from being elected President.
My guess is that he'll ask for some changes to the Democratic platform and want to have more say in how bills are brought up in the Senate. Maybe Senate Democrats will give him one of their leadership positions too.
