Although President Obama met with Senator Sanders moments before he formally endorsed Secretary Clinton the other day, the senator refused to concede the nomination. Why? Perhaps, as the pundits on cable, network, and print media have repeatedly decreed, the senator is merely attempting to maximize his primary vote counts and thereby maximize his impact on the Democratic convention and the platform on which its nominee will have to campaign. Perhaps. However, an alternative possibility has been haunting me for the last few weeks.
