Via TPM, this account of Hillary’s conversation with Bernie Sanders after her victory speech last night:
Clinton said on CNN that she “totally” understands how Sanders’ supporters feel and she congratulated the Vermont senator on his “really extraordinary campaign” in her call to him. She said she looked forward to working with Sanders to defeat presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.
Sanders’ response to this overture, according to Clinton?
“Senator Sanders has said he will work every day, every week to see that happen, so we’re going to be working to make sure that we have a unified party going into our convention and coming out,” Clinton said.
And Clinton added a message for Sanders’s voters, telling them, “She would “reach out” to his supporters, adding that she and Sanders had similar goals for health care and minimum wages.”
This is the phase of the campaign that gives the lie to the old joke, “Time is the universe’s way of making sure everything doesn’t happen at once.”
