When they reached the lectern, Sanders gave Clinton a half hug, acknowledged the event’s hosts, and said, “Let me begin by thanking the thirteen million voters who voted for me during the Democratic primaries, and thank you, New Hampshire, for giving us our first great victory.” For a few minutes, it sounded like he had accidentally brought one of his old campaign speeches. “Together, we have begun a political revolution to transform America, and that revolution continues,” he intoned. “Together, we will continue to fight for a government which represents all of us and not just the one per cent.”

As Clinton applauded gamely, Sanders got down to brass tacks. He noted that his opponent would be going into the Democratic Convention with three hundred and eighty-nine more pledged delegates than him, and “a lot more superdelegates.” Then, for the first time, he publicly acknowledged what has been obvious for weeks: “Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process,” he said, turning to place a supportive hand on her shoulder, “and I congratulate her for that. She will be Democratic nominee for President, and I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next President of the United States.”

As more cheers rang out, Clinton smiled. No—she beamed, and for good reason. To the chagrin of some of Sanders’s supporters, but to the surprise of no one who has followed the process closely, he wouldn’t be playing the role of general-election spoiler, after all. “I have come here today not to talk about the past but to focus on the future,” he went on. “I have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton, and why she must become our next President.”

One of the reasons Sanders laid out was obvious: Clinton isn’t Donald Trump. But rather than confining himself to this utilitarian argument, which many of his supporters will surely invoke when they pull the lever for Clinton on November 8th, Sanders also made a number of positive statements about a candidate who, not so long ago, hedeemed unqualified to occupy the Oval Office. The New Yorker reports.
