Sanders Acknowledges Presidential Race is a ‘Very, Very Uphill Fight,’ But Makes It Clear That He’s Not Backing Down

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday to discuss his campaign’s plans as the race for his party’s nomination enters into its advanced stages.

As the race currently stands, Sanders has 1,494 compared to Clinton’s 1,768, not counting superdelegates. But when superdelegates are taken into account, Clinton’s 2,293 dwarf Sanders’ 1,533 pledged delegates. This, Sanders and his supporters have argued, is a sign of a thoroughly undemocratic party policy.

“There’s something absurd when I get 46 percent of the delegates that come from real contests, real elections and 7 percent of superdelegates,” Sanders told host Jake Tapper Sunday.

“Some 400 of Hillary Clinton’s superdelegates came onboard her campaign before anybody else announced — it was an anointment,” the Vermont senator added.

Given this, however, Sanders noted that though the race is a “very, very, uphill fight,” he has no plans to slow down or to drop out.

Appearing on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday, Sanders told host George Stephanopoulos that he believes Clinton is “jumping the gun a little bit” by claiming she will be the Democratic Party’s nominee.

“This objective evidence is our campaign is the strongest to defeat Trump,” he said.

The most recent poll by the Washington Post-ABC shows Hillary Clinton lagging slightly behind the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump.

When asked if he would ever consider being Clinton’s running mate, Sanders told Stephanopoulos, “It’s a little early to talk about that. Right now, our function is to do everything I can, George” to “go into that convention with as much momentum as possible.”

    • I'm having trouble locating the other post regarding discrepancies. I'm going to share this discrepancy here. Perhaps I didn't search thoroughly enough. Did you mean to say that there is no clear indication of how a celestial observer or scribe could be defined according to Francesca Rochberg as an astrologer? I'm curious if they did require assistance from mathematicians then. What would happen if a scribe was illiterate and not an astrologer, but a record needed to be made because no astrologer was available to record an urgent event? "The title “t.upˇsar En¯uma Anu Enlil,” although easily yet only literally translated as “scribe of En¯uma Anu Enlil,” is difficult to define. The common translation, “astrologer,” by focusing on only one aspect of the En¯uma Anu Enlil scribe’s activities, conveys an inadequate and one-sided picture. No one-word English translation of t.upˇsar En¯uma Anu Enlil adequately defines the field of expertise of the En¯uma Anu Enlil scribe without implying an anachronistically sharp distinction between astrologer and astronomer, and an implied distinction between pseudoscientist and scientist." This observation was not limited to Mesopotamian scribal scholarship in general, but also extended to a similar concern for Babylonian culture. "Textual sources from which one can piece together the range of responsibilities and expertise of a scribe of En¯uma Anu Enlil are fortunately not limited to those on which the title appears, as these are surprisingly rare. In the Neo-Assyrian period, the available texts include one letter mentioning the “reports of the t.upˇsar En¯uma Anu Enlils,”37 one Babylonian report in which the writer ˇSum¯aia is the “scribe of En¯uma Anu Enlil from the new team,”38 and one administrative document listing the employees of the court in which seven t.upˇsar En¯uma Anu Enlils head the list, two of whom are well known from the court correspondence and the astrological reports, that is, Iˇstar-ˇsuma-¯ereˇs and Balasˆı." How do modern scholars make adjustments if they have no way of knowing the mental state of the ancient scribes? They must grapple with the uncertainty of the formulas used or not used. It seems that a great deal of interpretation is based on conjecture, leading to disagreements among scholars. This uncertainty certainly impacts certain areas of scholarly interpretation. It seems that they took their records seriously, but can we truly rely on them if we consider that the scribe may not have been a scholar?
    • I can't believe it! You actually sent me a staggering six reference books and an impressive dozen articles. I'm not a fast reader, haha!  
    • Have you examined the writings of Francesca Rochberg? This person adds a unique perspective to the works of Hunger, Sachs, and Steele. It is truly enlightening to observe Ptolemy's fascination with that particular era in Tetr. 2.3. It's fascinating how they still refer to Piches and Johannes' works, especially with additional information and further footnotes. 
    • I think we can take Geo Jackson’s words as a template. ‘You don’t want to take sides,’ he says, and to show the challenge of keeping neutral, he uses the example of contesting politicians in Australia, one of whom wanted to draft people of Jackson’s age into the military and one of whom did not. Now that would test your resolve to stay neutral, he said, nonetheless you must do it. If he was as ignorant of politics as some seem to think is the gold standard, he would not have even known which politician’s views would be to his benefit and which one would not. Of course, I leaned into him on this point, informing him that: I’m sure he gave my words all the consideration they deserved before instantly turning his attention to other matters.
    • Then stop using AI Tools, since it's clear you have none, at least not where it counts. Now to please your kind of friends, I can see it.
