HOWARD DEAN: I don't think [Bernie Sanders] has to drop out. He will want to make a speech at the convention and so forth and so on. But I think he's got to tone down his rhetoric. This is bitter. His supporters, many, I don't think the majority, are -- I am getting all these stuff on Twitter and Facebook, you know, it is not helpful to do this. It polarizes people. It weakens the left. It weakens progressives. It's not good for the country.
I don't expect him to drop out. He earned the right to make a speech at the convention and to continue to compete. But I think he's got to dial back his rhetoric because it is harming the party and more importantly, it is harming the country.
