Bernie Sanders tells Democratic convention, 'Hillary Clinton must become the next president of the United States'

What is Bernie Sanders getting that will make him throw all his support behind Hillary Clinton? There will of course be a position waiting for him after all the election fever has died down. Secretary of State?

Bernie Sanders urges millions to 'mobilize and fight back' against Trump's presidency:
"We have got to rally millions of people to stand together, to say, 'We are not going to be deporting millions of Latinos from this country ... We are not going to allow women to be insulted and attacked and have their rights taken away from them,'" the Vermont senator said. Ref. Source 6q.
Bernie Sanders insisted Monday he would challenge President-elect Donald Trump on issues such as Obamacare but urged fellow Democrats against simply obstructing the incoming administration.
"I'm going to do everything I can -- and I believe I speak for virtually every member of the Democratic caucus, that we're going to do everything that we can to improve the Affordable Care Act," Sanders said at a town hall in Washington airing on CNN. "It has problems. But we damn well aren't going to see it repealed and have no replacement there at all."
The Vermont senator and progressive favorite in the 2016 Democratic primary drew another clear line with Trump, saying: "I will tell you this: He ran a campaign whose cornerstone was bigotry. It was based on sexism, on racism, on xenophobia, and on that issue, I will not compromise."
Still, Sanders said he hopes Democrats don't use the "Obstruct, obstruct, obstruct" tactics against Trump that he said congressional Republicans deployed against President Barack Obama. Ref. CNN.
Why Is The FBI Investigating Bernie Sanders' Wife?;
Claiming to only know what they see in news reports, the Sanders' family and Senate staff is not talking about an apparent FBI investigation into Jane O'Meara Sanders - wife of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. Ref. Source 7f.
Yeah, I've been reading about this from some reputable sources. This is not looking good for Mrs. Sanders. It appears she misallocated funds and then lied about it. If true, this is simply another indication of the powerful, whether on the left or right, thinking they are untouchable and above the law. Maybe Bernie isn't quite as all for the little guy as he made out in the campaign… especially with the amounts fo money this article is reporting.
