Bill Clinton is busy rallying the Hillary troops in California ahead of Tuesday’s primary. In Los Angeles on Sunday the former president contended, as he does most places, with disgruntled supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders. Sanders has pledged he will not go gently into the Democratic Convention in July, despite Clinton’s seemingly insurmountable lead in delegates. Sanders supporters still show up everywhere to shout down Hillary’s candidacy, vowing passionately not to go gentle either.
Bill Clinton, hearing their shouts on Sunday, said, “If I were them I’d be screaming too,” predicting the Sanders campaign would soon be “toast.” But he was still gentle in his reprimand. “I don’t have anything bad to say about the people that are shouting against Hillary,” he said. “I think at least we’ve had the right debate in the Democratic primary.”
