"It doesn't appear that I'm going to be the nominee, so I'm not going to be determining the scope of the convention," the senator admitted in a C-SPAN interview.
With the Democratic National Convention looming a month away, Bernie accelerated the course of his final submission.
The former contender even lacked confidence in his right to speak at the Philadelphia convention despite winning over 12 million votes.
On June 14, a Bloomberg Politics national poll found that only 55 percent of those who favored Sanders actually plan to vote for Clinton.
Instead, 22 percent said they will vote for Donald Trump and 18 percent support Libertarian Gary Johnson.
On June 6, Hillary won enough delegates to officially secure the nomination from the DNC.
One day earlier, the former secretary claimed the Vermont senator should finally back out of the race once the California vote ended.
Citing the 2008 campaign, Hillary described the alleged grief of her supporters, who asked her to keep fighting after Obama secured the nomination, but she nagged Bernie to tow the party line as she did in '08.
“I expect Senator Sanders to do the same,” Hillary warned.
But Bernie will not win a 5 year gig of toppling Middle Eastern countries, nostalgically lurking the White House halls and prepping for an election his next debut.
Unlike Hillary in '08, this will probably be the last time we witness Bernie Sanders in the national spotlight.
The Democratic Party has worked tirelessly to expunge all influence of the Democratic Socialist from their party, so the Vermont senator probably expects a quiet, pampered retirement once he kisses the ring.
