So, I guess hell has frozen over, the dish has run away with the spoon and the three little kittens have all found their mittens because another fairy tale is unfolding before our eyes in that Bernie Sanders is about to endorse Hillary Clinton's bid for president.

Once thought to be unthinkable, the Vermont socialist not only says he will vote for Hillary but he will ask his supporters to pull the lever for the woman he once referred to as a Wall Street insider.   Calling Republican Donald Trump a "pathological liar" the Bern says Hillary is his gal all of sudden, never mind that FBI Director Comey says she lied through her teeth about her email.  An endorsement is expected during a rally in New Hampshire on Tuesday.

What  makes all of this so strange is that Bernie was the one candidate out of the two dozen hopefuls that started this race last year that was believable and trustworthy.   Most felt that Bernie was legit...the real deal, even if his politics are whacked.  The thought that Bernie would have a price was roundly dismissed by nearly everyone, many of whom thought he would take his case directly to the convention floor. So, it seems as if Bernie had a price after all.

Bernie is 74 years old and likely will not get another shot to run for the White House. If the system wasn't rigged against him as he claimed, he could have won the nomination.

Too bad because Sanders almost convinced us that he is honest and sincere.  This is all about legacy for Bernie.  He could have walked away after the convention saying he gave it all too his cause and went down in history as one of a rare breed. Too bad he came so close and then blew it.
