REVOLT! This is what Sanders’ backers are plotting against Hillary Clinton…

Bernie Sanders’ supporters have already made sure that their loud, booing voices were heard at the Democratic National Convention, but what was their plan to protest Hillary’s inevitable roll-call vote tonight, in which she has been nominated?

Nothing that would have a true impact on the convention.

Division within the party was on full display in the City of Brotherly Love as the convention got underway Monday, due in part to the leaked DNC emails that purportedly revealed the party convoluting and conspiring against Sanders, the self-proclaimed democratic socialist and anti-establishment candidate. Despite an apology from the DNC and resignation of party chief Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), tensions still ran high among delegates gathered in Philadelphia — especially within those whose loyalty lay with Sanders.

PHILADELPHIA — Bernie Sanders’ supporters have already made their voices heard at the Democratic National Convention, but they have yet to face their biggest challenge — Tuesday’s roll-call vote.

Division within the party was on full display in the City of Brotherly Love as the convention got underway Monday, due in part to the leaked DNC emails that purportedly revealed the party convoluting and conspiring against Sanders, the self-proclaimed democratic socialist and anti-establishment candidate. Despite an apology from the DNC and resignation of party chief Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), tensions still ran high among delegates gathered in Philadelphia — especially within those whose loyalty lay with Sanders.

But even with his name placed in nomination, a group of Sanders’ delegates said Tuesday morning that it wasn’t enough, especially if the move is purely “symbolic.”

Cohen contended that while he couldn’t speak for all delegates, many are planning to adhere to what he called the “safe state strategy”: in states where Clinton or Trump is almost certain to dominate, Sanders supporters will vote for Green Party candidate Jill Stein or another “protest candidate;” in swing states, Sanders’ supporters will vote Democrat “despite the misgivings.”

“If Clinton had chosen someone like [Massachusetts Sen.] Elizabeth Warren, the convention would be happy, and we could easily defeat Trump,” Cohen said. “It could have been an easy election.”

Even prior to the roll-call vote, Sanders supporters have been antsy — some stood in the convention hall with tape over their mouths that read, “Silenced at the DNC,” and others shouted the oft-criticized chant that rang out at the GOP convention: “Lock her up.” Still others have clashed with Clinton supporters and shouted down Wasserman Schultz at delegation breakfasts.

Tape on the mouth doesn’t really do much. It’s cute, in a pesky kind of way, but that’s it. I’m sure the other delegates enjoyed the fact that they didn’t have to do anything to get Bernie’s supporters to shut up. They just did it themselves.
