Walkout

(There in spirit if not in person, she fell on the sword for the corrupt DNC, Hillary, Wall Street, the MIC, and the neocons.  She'll be rewarded even if she's tossed out of the House.)

One of the most common arguments being made against the walkout is that delegates will somehow abandon their chance to fight for Bernie’s politics and lose their voice by leaving. But the walkout will happen well after the platform and nomination votes are over. After the nomination roll call, the convention becomes ever more purely ceremonial, undemocratic, and scripted: The Hillary Show™--KS

Good move, highly symbolic protest of the machine if nothing else.
