What’s Next for Bernie Sanders?

Ms. Clinton would clearly benefit from the support of Mr. Sanders, even if it is not entirely enthusiastic, but the negotiations will be tough. They will unavoidably highlight the differences between Mr. Sanders uncompromising nature and contempt for ordinary political processes and Ms. Clinton who is a consummate political insider and compromiser. More importantly, even if Mr. Sanders was a deal maker, it would not be clear what he would want. Typically, losing candidates have less leverage than they think. That may turn out to be true for Mr. Sanders in a few months, but a bigger problem might be that there is very little for which he can ask.
