Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar rushed to drop out out of the Democrat nominating process and endorse “moderate” Joe Biden before Super Tuesday, but Hillary Clinton is still refusing to do so.
Appearing Tuesday on “Good Morning America,” the failed 2016 candidate was asked if she would jump on the band wagon in an attempt to stifle Bernie Sanders, and she refused to answer the question.

“I think the process is finally moving forward,” Clinton said.
“So there’s a long way to go. Today is obviously a big day. So I’m just watching and hoping that we nominate whoever is the strongest candidate to take out the current incumbent. That’s the only thing that really matters at the end of the day,” she said.
Later, Clinton laughed when she was told Bernie Sanders has said he should be the nominee if he has the most delegates at the convention.
“My reaction is let’s follow the rules, we’ve got rules. We had rules last time, we have rules this time and I think it’s always a good idea to follow the rules. Everybody knew what they were when you got into it,” she chided her former opponent.
Clinton reiterated that Sanders’s 2016 campaign was “just baloney.”
“I just think we ought to be more understanding and realistic about what it takes to get change in this big, complicated pluralistic democracy of ours,” she said in a no-so-veiled swipe at Sanders.
