Do you remember back in 2008, when Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton betook themselves to Unity, New Hampshire, for post-primary bonding? Clinton-Sanders seems like a tougher merge. Maybe they could be a little less ambitious and just get together in Friendly, West Virginia.
There’s also Smileyberg, Kansas. Although it’s sort of a ghost town, which isn’t great for analogies.
So far, Bernie Sanders doesn’t seem to be in a Smileyberg state of mind. He’s meeting with President Barack Obama on Thursday, but in his post-primary speech to supporters he was vowing to battle on to the convention.
“I am pretty good at arithmetic and I know that the fight in front of us is a very, very steep fight,” he said, in what may have been the biggest understatement of the campaign.
“We are going to fight hard to win the primary in Washington, D.C.,” he added.
