The Governor explains why he’s changed his tune in regards to giving Bernie Sanders an outright endorsement. If Sanders doesn’t win and endorses the Democratic nominee, does this mean it will be the end of his so-called political revolution?

I understand people are surprised by my stance towards Bernie Sanders.  Though I must commend him for pulling off a huge upset in Michigan.  But he told me unequivocally he would support the Democratic nominee if he doesn’t win the nomination.  This showed me that Bernie Sanders’ loyalty now lies with the Democratic Party.  And I don’t support the Democratic Party as I don’t support the Republican party.  I don’t support either party.

If he goes that route -- if he endorses Hillary Clinton in the end -- that will put an end to the revolution he’s been talking about.

Put it this way: I still feel like Che Guevara needs to live on. The revolution needs to continue, and what disappointed me about Bernie is that, if he loses the nomination, the revolution ends with him.  I don't like that.  If he endorses Hillary, we’ll end up with her in office and it will be business as usual: Wall Street will continue to run everything.

Things will never change then. People have to resign themselves to the fact that there won’t be any change. It will be the same as it is now.  Who’s in charge now?  Barack Obama.  And, if Hillary wins, it will continue to be the same.

I don’t want that.  I want change. I truly want to see change happen. That’s why I’m disappointed this revolution could die a sudden death if Sanders doesn’t win.
