RE: Sanders Endorses Clinton
I only hope Clinton has the good sense to give him either the VP nod or a cabinet position.

Better to vote for Trump who's been an upfront and more genuine brand of ASSHOLE since the very beginning?

But once a nomination has been secured it is tradition to get in line behind the Nominee, only a few times has this not been the case and it nearly always results in the party losing the election.
I think you misunderstood my post. My question was about the validity of their criticisms, not the motivation behind their endorsements. I'm aware that the loser of a presidential primary frequently ends up supporting his opponent.

There are millions of people who disagree with you there. Some of them are much smarter and much more educated than any of us can ever hope to be. Are you seriously trying to say that they're all stupid because they disagree with you on that point?

In 2008 during that compaign Clinton repeatedly questioned Obama's experience and many other things. When it was clear he was the nominee she supported him. Again, I don't fault her for being pragmatic.
I do fault Bernie Sanders for it. He is someone who convinced regular, hard-working Americans to donate over $200m to his grassroots campaign by running on an anti-establishment, anti-lobbyism, anti-war, anti-TPP platform and by promising to fight against corruption and big money in politics. I expect that his endorsement of a candidate who stands for so much of what him and his supporters have been rallying against in the past will be seen as a major form of betrayal by many of them.

And millions who do agree with him. Guess we'll see who has more millions soon enough. Your opinion obviously won't be counted.

I don't take much stock in what any politician says during the primaries against their opposition. He was trying to win votes. I'm not at all fussed by it and wasn't then.

If Sanders had won, the Clinton camp would be doing a similar reversal.

As she did in 2008 with Obama.

Yes I pointed that out later, she said all sorts of things about his lack of experience. When the Kennedy's placed their support with Obama I think it hurt her.

Being petulant within the party doesn't help win elections.

Only if it affects whether the person was telling the truth. While one person could look at the endorsement and say "they're just backing out because of party unity" another could look at the prior attack and say "they're just trying to win the primary". Either or both could be true. They could be downplaying or exaggerating negative traits as convenient.
