Bye, Bye, Bernie!

In the opening paragraph of Drum corps for the New Jersey Primary, I saw the end of Bernie Sanders' campaign coming.
Even without the Associated Press announcing yesterday that Clinton has enough delegates to win the nomination, I expected that today would be Bernie Sanders' last stand.  Just the same, he has a chance to go out on a high note with at least one victory tonight, as Montana and South Dakota, two likely Sanders states, and New Mexico, a likely Clinton state, also vote today.  He could go on a very high note if he upsets Clinton in California.  Whatever the outcome, this Sanders supporter is now ready for Hillary.
I followed up in Drum corps for the California primary, where I wrote "I'm now ready for Hillary and I'll be taking my Bernie magnet off Pearl tomorrow."  That's exactly what I did.

However, Sanders didn't concede, resulting in this opening to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert the next night.

A rare behind-the-scenes glimpse of our Hungry For Power Games host captures the moment when he learns that Tribute Sanders is still in the race.
Then yesterday, this happened.

Sen. Bernie Sanders officially endorsed presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, saying he is teaming up with his primary rival to defeat Donald Trump. CNN's Jeff Zeleny reports.
Looks like Bernie is now ready for Hillary and thinks he's stronger together by being with her, even if a few of his followers aren't.  Now Stephen can play Caesar Flickerman in the Hungry For Power Games: Bernie Sanders.

Now that Senator Sanders has officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for President, it's time to bid farewell to one of the last remaining tributes.
Bye, Bye, Bernie!  Time to toast you with a Bernie Paloma or an Old Vermont Cocktail New link.*

Now, on to the conventions and the general election!

*Tipsy Bartender, Mr. ShoBiz isn't.  I'll need a drink just to deal with watching that video. ETA: After I left a comment to that effect on the video, Mr. ShoBiz made it private. Now there are no videos of Old Vermont Cocktails on YouTube. That written, the image above is an improvement!
