No.  The real culprit for Bernie not being the DNC candidate are you and I and everyone else.  A lot of people are talk, a lot of people are wishy washy.  The Hillary people always outnumbered the bernie camp.  That's the reason, and that fact that all the Bernie supporters didn't really vote.  I'm looking at you local weed shop owner who forgot/didn't care enough to vote that day. 

Nnnnnnnnope. What stopped Bernie was certain states being allowed to bar independents from voting for democratic seats. 

What is an oddity is the fact some states allow independents to be involved in choosing the candidate for a party. IMO it's only members of a party who should be choosing their candidate. It's pretty much how it works in every other country.
