Default Bernie's concession and the DNC rules

Saw this circulating on FB:


As per DNC rules, a candidate with an active campaign is not allowed to deny an endorsement of another campaign. Doing so would result in forfeiture of said candidate's superdelegate states, and the loss of access to the convention floor stage.

You must come to understand that the nature of politics is to subtract meaning from language. Although Bernie Sanders is a statesman, he's still a politician. Have a bit of patience, and wait for Bernie Sanders to make his case at the Democratic National Convention. By "endorsing" Hillary Clinton, Sanders is actively preserving his options, and buying time.

There may be such a rule in place for candidates in "lower" races, but not for competitors. Otherwise Hillary would also have to endorse Bernie.
