It’s all over but the shouting. Even Bernie Sanders, who knows more than most folks about shouting, has got to be able to see that. The only question now is when he’ll do the right thing.

On Tuesday afternoon, as voting was well under way in Democratic primaries in six states, Sanders, a socialist senator from Vermont, flew home to Burlington. Too bad he didn’t use his home base to announce the end of his campaign. After all, the guy isn’t even a Democrat. If he sticks around, he’ll be like some B-movie creature that just won’t die, but hangs around interminably, instilling fear in all. As Sanders now has no realistic path to the nomination, it’s time for him to go.

Former Vice President Joe Biden once again cleaned Sanders’ clock on Tuesday, winning big in Michigan and in Mississippi and in Missouri.
